New Model: Galeon 430 HTC

 
After a journey which showed PowerYacht displaying again the Inbuild process of a Galeon, we can say the 430 HTC is ready for its important Cannes boat show debut.  Based on the hull and interior layout of the 420 Fly, the 430 HTC diversifies itself for its two opening sunroofs; aft and inside, and the modular settee at the cockpit.  The modular aft deck is a very interesting piece of engineering which can be a dinette, two side beds, or one big central sunpad.  With the 430 HTC the Galeon design team also presented new side window profiles which differ from those of the 420 Fly and are a bit bigger in size suiting better to the more sport nature of this model. Inside the superb layout of the 420 Fly with three double cabins below with owners room to fore and two guest to midships is repeated.  The living of the 430 HTC is on the main with a split level area have a saloon settee with entertainment opposite and the raised area featuring a port side located C-shaped galley with helm station on the other side.  Galeon is known for offering various wood options in its model, but hull one of the 430 HTC has been fitted in modern Wenge wood, which fits very well with the dark aggressive color of the exterior hull. As with all its models Galeon offers a lot of engine choices, eight is the number here, and starts from twin Volvo 260 and go up to 435hp.
