galeon Yachts for Sale
With over 30 years in the yacht building business, Galeon is one of the top European manufacturers of luxury motor yachts. From drawing table to final launch, each yacht is carefully designed and hand-crafted to achieve the level of quality that the company is known for. Bold styling and attention to detail are common elements of these yachts. Their lead designer, Tony Castro, has a history of award-winning boats, some as large as 410 feet, and his expertise has earned Galeon many European yacht-design awards.
Since 1982, Galeon has grown, adding a second production facility and partnering with some of the best design firms in Europe. Currently, they employ over 1,400 people across their manufacturing departments. Their overall production facilities cover over 59,000 square feet, with plenty of space for even the largest projects. Recently, they opened a second facility which offers private berths for current owners and direct access to the Baltic Sea. Future models are constantly in different stages of production with a culture of innovation driving the adoption of new technologies and partnerships.
A yacht begins on the drawing board and is then monitored for quality all the way to launch, and Galeon manufactures everything from the hulls to the metal fasteners. Their workshops encompass every aspect of the manufacturing process, allowing for uncompromising quality control and attention to detail at every step of construction. For some of the larger models, creating a mold for the hull can take as long as six months. Handmade furniture is made on site and a laminate division work together to create unique and beautiful interior spaces. The main assembly hall adds all the electronics, windows, appliances and eventually the engines before the yacht heads for the large testing pool. Before the yacht is ready for open water, the hull is checked for balance, the engines are tested, and a rain simulator subjects every window and door to realistic conditions to ensure a proper seal against the elements.
Galeon currently offers 29 different models ranging from the compact 300 Fly to the expansive 780 Crystal which is just over 80 feet long. Their different lines include sport cruisers, hard tops, skydecks, and flybridges. For customization, an owner can select from a wide array of materials. Galeon is a leading European manufacturer with decades of experience and a focus on innovation, both of which can be seen in their award-winning boats.
