In the recent years Galeon has upgraded its stakes in the motor yachting and cruiser market, with the 2008 season being a year to remember for the Polish builder with the introduction of new generation models like the current flagship 640 Fly and the just launched aggressive 325 cruiser, both designed by renowned designer Tony Castro and both making a stir in the yachting community. This time the Polish builder challenges the market even more offering something bigger, with the new flagship project of the 700 Raptor, a hard top sports yacht which will be Galeon's biggest built to date and of its type in Poland. Powered by twin MAN V12 Diesel engines, producing 1500 hp each, Galeon estimates top speeds of about 36 knots for its new flagship model. Tony Castro continues his great work for Galeaon following his recent success with the 640 and 325, and for the 700 Raptor he presents a forward thinking concept with remarkable new ideas for exclusive comfort and space. The interior follows the recent Galeon theme with fresh and innovative luxury, resembling a modern penthouse or loft, with the usual treat as experienced for the new 640 of exotic woods, glass, metal and leather use all hand picked by Polish craftsmen to ensure the highest quality and coherence of style. Another innovation compared to similar sport yachts in this size, is the use of huge glass roof combined with wide glass doors, which will protect or open air the main deck to the sun, as the owner desires. This model is bound to surprise a lot of people, but we have to wait till spring of 2009 to see how good the 700 Raptor really is.
