The newest iteration of the Galeon 700 owes its looks to Tony Castro and the Galeon shipyard, and now it comes with a flybridge. A sea trial onboard convinced us that the Polish builder knows just how to thrill. This stylish 71-foot yacht, which hits 33 knots easily when powered by the largest engine package, is as comfortable when moored with all windows and doors open (they completely disappear into the sole), as it is at full speed. The console is attractive, with crisp displays by Raymarine and comfortable dual Treben seats. Creative design solutions include a foldable automated outdoor stepladder, which tucks away under the skydeck overhang to free up space on the flexible aft deck, a space equally suited for an afternoon lunch or a lazy afternoon in the sun. The skydeck takes nothing away from the sporty profile and incorporates an upper helm station for a thrilling ride in the open air. A garage contains a small tender or PWC, which is easily unloaded and lowered into the water automatically using a remote-operated Bar system. Inside, LED lighting highlights and softens the contemporary décor that combines dark veneers and tiles with white paneling. All in all, it’s très chic.
Along with the Raptor 700, Galeon, which has opened an office near Fort Lauderdale, is showing its Galeon 430 HTC.
