INBUILD ~ Galeon 430 HTC Part 5 of 5

The last phase of the Galeon 430 HTC inbuild journey comes to an end in its part number five, with nine workers preparing the final touches before this much waited sport cruiser model hits the water for full sea trials, and after this heads for the fall 2012 boat show season in the Med sea.  As for many recent hull number ones, Galeon choose again an aggressive color.  As said the 430 HTC is based on the already fully tested hull of the 420 Fly launched a year ago and designed by British Tony Castro.  So minus some weight and less air resistance thanks to the lower profile of the hard top this should make little to no difference in the 430 HTC performance.  The interior will have a living on the main deck with a split level saloon dividing the C-shaped settee from the galley and helm station. Down below is space for three cabins sleeping six in three separate cabins, with two spacious shower heads serving guests.  Obviously the most important novelty in the 430 HTC is the modular settee serving the aft deck, which transforms in various utilities for the moment.
