New Model: Galeon 420 Fly

After launching its most important model in Summer with the flagship 780 Crystal, Galeon continues to push the envelope of design and comfort in its medium sized offer and presents the new 420 Fly.  This model is again a work of the Galeon technical team and British designer Tony Castro, since 2004 the architect of the Polish Strazyn builder.  The 420 Fly should replace the long standing and successful 390 Fly offering modern lines, large view windows in all areas, and a three cabins lower deck.  Speaking frankly this is very hard to find in this size, more so if you consider that the three cabins of the 420 Fly are no bunks.  The three cabins are found because the 420 Fly living and galley area are all but located on the main deck in a split level saloon.  The well sized C-shaped galley is located in the raised fore part of the interior, side to the helm station to starboard.  The flybridge is also spacious offering an L-shaped settee, hob with washbasin, and two sets of settees looking forward which seat a total of four persons including the helm.  Again space is the theme for the aft deck, with easy access to the side walks, and the bathing platform.  The platform can also be ordered with an extension of over one meter in order to carry a larger tender, and having more bathing space.  Seven engine choices power the Galeon 420 Fly which start at 260 up to 400hp from Volvo, Cummins, and Volkswagen, with also a varied type of propulsion being on offer from the more economic to run stern drive, reliable maintenance free shafts, and IPS pods.

  1. Galeon has modified the designation of this model to 420 Fly from the 400. So now the article has been modified accordingly. Will leave the project as 400 Fly so as to be easily identified.
