INBUILD ~ Galeon 385 HT Part 1 of 7

Galeon has five lined new models for this years fall and this means a hard pick choosing which to dedicate for the special INBUILD section. Apart the important new flagship 780 Crystal which we are following, now you will also see construction updates for the 385 HT model. Designed by British Tony Castro the 385 HT will be an important new model for Galeon and those who are looking for the perfect eleven metres sport cruiser, offering a hard top, flush main deck, and a two cabins two head interior plan. Only the Sessa C38 released in the fall of 2009 which is the first of this latest generation eleven metres can combine these amenities. Picture above is the tooling of the mould of the 385 HT hull, here being shown in its refined stages. Worth to note that unlike some other builders Galeon produces all the tooling in house. While this can be of little importance to the end product, it is to the manufacturer which makes things easy if updating and improving a model will be needed in the near future.
