INBUILD ~ Galeon 430 HTC Part 4 of 5

Is it not an important date when the engines are being installed in any boat.  If the helm is the brain, the engines are definitely the all important heart.  That heart which makes the boat move over water and in cases reach all those important speeds. This is that moment for the Galeon 430 HTC, when the engines where put in there dedicated compartment located to midships.  In this picture one can also see other details of the 430 HTC taking shape, as the extended hard top which covers or opens up to make the sun worshippers of the modular aft deck make best use of the transformed sun pad.  Other details we can see is the helm located to starboard, and the raised split level which to port side will feature the galley here looking similar to the layout of the 420 Fly.   Returning to the engines the 430 HTC will be powered with a large engine list starting from twin 220 up to 435hp.  There will also be three choices of propulsion from reliable shafts, modern IPS pod, and efficient stern drives.  I can tell you that hull one of the 430 HTC will feature line shafts with semi tunnels.  What will customers prefare for this model after a couple years in production run?  Guess that only time can reply this question.
