EUROPEAN POWER BOAT OF THE YEAR 2016
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.
