The Galeon 310 HTC is a 34-foot express cruiser yacht with a hard-top that was released by Polish boat-building company Galeon in 2016. Designed in collaboration with industry icon Roberto Curto, the 310 HTC bears a sleek and dynamic profile with aggressively styled glazing, ultra-contemporary living spaces and a sharp finish that modern cruising enthusiasts will love. Though limited in size the 310 HTC has made a big impression with yachting experts, bagging the prize for “Boat of the Year” in its class at the 2016 Champion Yachting awards held in Warsaw, Poland, as well as winning the “Zloty Medal” at the 2016 Poland Boat Show.
Out on the foredeck and safely enclosed by high aluminum guardrails you will find a pair of full-length sunpads with marina-facing views, from where you can relax for hours on end in the summer sunshine. In the teak-lined aft-cockpit you will discover a wet-bar, a removable breakfast table and a comfortable transom sofa with a backrest that can be folded down to turn this into a stern-facing sunpad. A transom gate separates the cockpit from a full-beam bathing platform with a shower from where you can enjoy warm-water diving.
The light and breezy salon offers a deceptively spacious living area lined in matte oak and white Alcantara inserts with a diamond-stitched U-shaped sofa surrounding a timber-topped extending table. To port there is an open galley with marble-effect Corian work surfaces, an Origo combination oven, a two-zone hob, a large sink and hidden fridge-freezer units. The starboard side helm station benefits from superb visibility out of gin-clear windows and sits directly beneath an automatic glazed sunroof for that added connection to the elements. The helm comes with Raymarine electronics including a chart-plotter, a Penta joystick, trim tab and bow thruster controls, Fusion radio, rudder indicators and hydraulic steering.
Galeon’s genius for making the most out of compact spaces is much in evidence on the lower deck, where a double stateroom to the bow with a skylight and knife-insert glazing provides a seductive overnight retreat for two with plenty of hidden storage. Located amidship you will find another double cabin, albeit with limited headroom, and a bathroom with an open shower fixture, transforming what should be a dayboat into a bone fide weekend cruiser.
Power aboard the Galeon 310 HTC comes in a form of a single Volvo Penta D4 300MHP diesel inboard engine that provides economical cruising and competitive top speeds, while a resin-infused fiberglass hull offers plenty of lift at full-throttle and balance on the turn.
