EURO­PEAN POWER BOAT OF THE YEAR 2016

Hong Kong Tatler - - Superyachts - The Ga­leon 500 Fly is avail­able in Hong Kong through Asia Marine Yacht Ser­vices (amysa­sia.com)

With its stun­ningly sleek lines, strik­ingly com­plex su­per­struc­ture, enor­mous con­vert­ible open-plan cock­pit and a sun pad that trans­forms into a pop-up din­ing ta­ble, the Ga­leon 500 Fly is on the sum­mer wish lists of ev­ery mogul, mag­nate and mil­lion­aire.

De­signer Tony Cas­tro has cre­ated an ag­gres­sively sexy tour de force of in­ge­nu­ity in the Ga­leon 500 Fly, a 50-footer that sur­passes all oth­ers with its su­pery­acht fea­tures. These in­clude: a ter­race with ta­ble and stools that con­nect al­most ma­ni­a­cally to the in­ner gal­ley, form­ing a per­fect cock­tail bar as needed; a fold-out ter­race with a lounge that not only skims the wa­ter but can swing 360 de­grees; a large mas­ter cabin; a dou­ble bunk room; a su­perb VIP guest cabin with enor­mous sky­lights; and, of course, the manda­tory crew cabin.

Reach­ing a top speed of 30 knots with 670hp Volvo D9s, it’s not just a pretty face, ei­ther. Launched last year at the pres­ti­gious Cannes Boat Show, the Ga­leon 500 re­ceived more than 20 or­ders—so you might want to put your name down for one, pronto.
