INBUILD ~ Galeon 780 Crystal Part 7 of 9

The construction process of Galeon 780 Crystal hull number one continues, and for today we are showing you glimpse of the interior.  Or to be more precise those of an unfinished main deck.  As in all production boat building processes hull one always represents the study of the plans and how these can it actual fact work in reality. For example that stairs which leads to the starboard is a temporarily kit which will be replaced by a moulded staircase as is fashion in this size of yacht.  Behind the stairs inside will be a day head, which is on facts very hard to find on boats under ninety feet, and nearly impossible to those not making the eight foot mark.  On the other side to port will also be a bar with two stools.  Galeon and designer Tony Castro where very clever in making the aft part of the interior saloon practical, and serving the exterior.  If the day head on the main deck is unusual under ninety feet this is usually found in yachts of over thirty meters i.e. one hundred feet. The saloon inside will be a three part split area; lounging, galley with dining for eight, and helm station at the foremost part.  Seeing like this make you think of an empty building, but come launching day this will be one of the most exquisite areas of the yachts filled with luxury living.
