Galeon is extending and refreshing its mid-range segment with a hard top variation of the acclaimed 420 Fly. The main focus during the design stages was to flawlessly integrate a bright and welcoming interior with the sporty and dynamic character of the 430. We take a closer look to see if Galeon have pulled it off.
The forward facing glass roof effortlessly slides back to reveal a sunny blue sky yet its quick and easy to close when the weather suddenly changes. The single sliding panel over the cockpit area opens the yacht up, while the patio doors allow easy access to the salon. The aft facing loungers will slide when needed creating either a great dining or leisure area at the stern.
The main deck features plenty of space occupied by a dining table, sitting areas, well equipped helmsman station and a galley with an option to be moved down below. The electric sliding bed will extend the berth to a class leading eight and the endless interior design options will allow to fully customize the yacht.
Down below, two or three bedroom options are available, all with ample headroom space. Two separate bathrooms, complete with showers, offer privacy and comfort for all passengers on board. High quality fabrics, luxury fittings and top of the line electronic equipment create a stunning and relaxing interior. Custom design lines and materials are available.
A wide variety of engine options include the IPS, shaft, sterndrive, Aquadrive and Axius systems to suit all needs. High power output engines will realize the yacht’s potential and help take advantage of the precise and accurate handling, while others will be more focused on comfort and fuel efficiency.

We believe that Galeon has made a strong attempt in driving a new refresh to its mid segment sports cruiser range, although the 430 HTC has its quirky detail, they have executed the 430 HTC with a satisfying pat on the back.
