Project: Galeon 385 Open

Galeon presents the project of the 385 Open, mirroring the hardtop version below the shear line, in the cabins and the practical department, but having its topsides which say head in the air driving experience. Like the 325 before it, with the 385 the famous Straszyn Polish builder and British designer Tony Castro redo what they did in 2008 and follow the demanded HT for Hardtop project with a sportier 385 Open version. The 385 Open gives a younger feel to the overall looks versus the HT version with Tony Castro following a family feeling in this new bigger model which mirrors the Galeon line but mostly the smaller 325 Open sister. The 385 indeed does look similar in the lines, the long sports side window, forward looking radar arch, the windshield which comes from the moulded structure, and an aft cockpit deck which uses half the length. For the remaining the 385 Open is exact as its hardtop sister for what is the accommodation with a well laid flush aft deck cockpit outside, and a two cabins, two shower heads interior. Propulsion will be a stern drive solution offering good speeds and best economy.
