About Grand Large Yachting

Founded in 2003 by Stéphan Constance and Xavier Desmarest, Grand Large Yachting builds top-of-the-range cruising sail yachts for blue water ocean cruising. With the Allures and Garcia brands, it develops a range of monohull sailing yachts, while the Outremer and Gunboat brands specialise in multihulls. The Gunboat brand offers very high-end catamarans to a wealthy clientele looking for very high performance. With the Alumarine and Ocean Voyager brands, the group is also developing sailboats for professional operators in the tourism industry.

From its main shipyards in France located in the cities of Cherbourg, La Grande Motte and Nantes, the group generates sales of c.a.. €50m, 70% of which is made internationally.

Pechel acquired a stake in 2019 to support the group's development projects.
