New Model: Galeon 445 HTS

Galeon continues to renew and presenting new models which follows what the Polish builder likes to call its third generation line.  The 445 HTS is Galeon's latest third generation addition what is hard top sport cruiser with a patio door dividing the main deck from the exterior sun bathing areas aft, to the more relaxed lounging sofas inside.  With this new model Tony Castro followed design stints as outside as shown first with the 325, and later on with the 385 models.  Inside Galeon and the British designer present a two large double cabins lower deck with a full beam owners amidships suite, VIP cabin to fore, and an L-shaped galley with opposite dining C-shaped saloon in between the two rooms.  The main deck offers a C-shaped settee to portside, with a helmsman to starboard followed by an entertainment cabinet. Outside is a sun pad under which is a tender garage, and an L-shaped settee.  Different options should be available to the interior, as I know for example that a three cabin plan is on the works.  Engines are twin options starting from 400 up to 558hp engines with pod drives or stern drive propulsion.
