New Model: Galeon 350 HTC


Another PowerYacht exclusive set to debut in the coming September month Cannes show. This is Galeon's new 350 HTC, the three letters meaning for Hard Top Coupe. Based on an extended hull which comes from the successful 330 series, the new 350 HTC puts the elements we have seen on the bigger Galeon's into a smaller package. Signs of these are evident in the glass hard top similar to what you see on the 700 Raptor and quality fittings in the upholstery, and furniture. Galeon unlike other builders also opted for a complete new super structure tooling for the 350 HTC, showing bigger windows in the side, and a large windshield compared to the also new for 2010 340 Fly unveiled in January. Apart the super structure differences the 350 HTC keeps various successful elements from the 340 Fly with some of these also coming from the 330 series. I like the clever cockpit settee this like the 340, and the inside galley saloon up arrangement permitting a unique three cabin five berths plan below as found on the 330 line. Power is twin Volvo 220hp, up to a faster optional 300hp choice which gives a 35 knots top speed.
