Project: Galeon 420 HTC

Galeon presents the project of the 420 HTC, which shares hull with another currently in construction model the soon to come 400 Fly.  From a technical point this latest Galeon hard top sport cruiser project designed again by Tony Castro represents one of its most innovative model which comes in the form of a sliding aft deck settee which can module as to one needs.  From a sun lounger to a dinette. But as the Polish builder has showed in the last years the 420 HTC has other innovations, which comes also in the patio door which opens all to join the interior main deck with the exterior aft cockpit.  The hard top also extends on the aft deck and this opens all up, this being also seen on the 700 Raptor.  The 420 HTC also follows latest design instincts and offers a full living on the main deck, in a split level saloon which offers on entrance a C-shaped sofa, opposite settee, and on the raised area galley and helm station to starboard.  The glass hard top in this area also opens for about half of the roof, which makes the HTC become a very open boat.  Down below is space for a standard plan with three cabins, and two heads, and owners room to fore. A two cabin layout with what I imagine a large full beam cabin will also be available.  Power will be from twin 220 up to 435hp engines in various propulsion choices of stern drive, pods, and shaft line.
