New Model: Galeon 340 Fly

PowerYacht made you follow the making of Galeon's new 340 Fly, from its project design released in October, to the INBUILD four part story. So now it is fitting to show exclusive pictures of the finished flybridge Motor Cruiser, especially for those who could not make to its first World preview in Dusseldorf during the current week. The 340 Fly will be a big challenge for Galeon as it targets to beat its best sold model, that is the 330 Fly delivered in over two hundred examples till the past Summer. Surely the 340 Fly has all the making to challenge the 330 records with its modern exterior which is very similar to Galeon's 640 flybridge flagship, luxurious fittings, and a unique three cabin interior. This last feature very unheard in flybridge boats under thirteen metres. Still for the fans of the 330 Fly, Galeon so far has decided to keep it in production along the 340 for at least the 2010 season. None the less the 340 Fly is built on the success that is the 330 and builds on its bases to present a better more modern flybridge motor cruiser, with the addition in length giving further cockpit space, bigger flybridge, and an extended bathing platform. Hull number one was fitted with wenge wood fittings, but a light colored oak veneer choice is also available. Power will be from twin Volvo's up to 300hp, with stern drive as propulsion, which give estimated top speeds up to 35 knots.
