New Model: Galeon 385 Open

Galeon continue the presentation of the 385 series model, first presented as HTS i.e hard top sports in Cannes 2010, and now premiering the 385 Open in gold color at Dusseldorf, Germany. As was the case for the HTS, the 385 Open designed by Tony Castro shows impressive good looks which are complemented by very spacious spaces inside, and outside. But apart the forward looking radar arch design which cater for more hands in the air experience, hull one of the 385 Open also offered the novelty for having a hydraulic up and down bathing platform which gives the benefit and possibility of carrying a second and larger tender aft. The extended platform also increases length by 120 centimeters to the standard 385 bringing the length overall to 44 feet, and also makes it one of the first stern drive powered boats to offer this option. For the rest the 385 Open continues its grand spaces everywhere. The outside impresses for its single floor layout which offers a C-shaped settee, chaise lounge to port, and helm station, galley to starboard. Here the impressive area is the settee which underneath just like magic you also have a well spaced tender garage which can stow a 2.60 meter in length water craft. Down below the space is for two cabins both with en suite heads; owners stateroom to fore, double or two single scissor movement bed to aft, C-shaped dinette, and L-shaped galley. Power for the 385 Open is over seven engine choices from Volvo and Volkswagen which start from twin 225hp up to 370hp. This last option gives a top speed of 40 knots max. Start up base engine is a twin Volvo 270hp petrol which gives a competitive price, especially if you consider the high quality the 385 shows in all areas, which comes complete the renowned Tony Castro design both above and below the waterline.
