Basic Info

Yacht Name: Ganesh
Builder: Garcia
Model: Passoa 47
Year: 1993
Location: Annapolis, MD
Designer: Philippe
Hull Material: Aluminum

Ganesh is the ultimate long range cruising yacht, built by Garcia Yachting, designed by Philippe Harle with interiors by Andre Rameau. The Passoa 47 is a centerboard boat, so she only draws a little over 3' to allow unfettered access to the tightest anchorages. She also has a daggerboard aft to improve downwind performance. Her tough aluminum hull is extra thick beneath the waterline, 10mm in thickness.
Thanks to her integral centerboard design she is able to be run up on the beach if need be, or wait out a low tide. The fixed internal ballast allows for a low center of gravity, and she is self righting. Tankage is integral with the boats structure, and also acts as a double hull incase of bottom damage from rocks or reefs.
Ganesh has successfully completed a circumnavigation, and her current (2nd) owners have taken her around both coasts of the Atlantic, from Europe, to South America, and up the US East Coast. She is only used seasonally, 3-4 months a year, and spends her off seasons on the hard. If you're looking for the ultimate in extended offshore cruising make sure to check out Ganesh.
