The Galeon 325 GTO is a 32-foot, outboard-powered sportsboat that was launched by Polish yacht-building company Galeon in 2021. Crafted in collaboration with renowned naval stylist Tony Castro, this sleek and contemporary hardtop vessel went through three years of painstaking design work to produce a thoroughly modern yacht packed with innovative features and sportscar-like handling. What’s more, the 325 GTO’s wide beam of almost 11-feet has allowed Galeon to formulate a revolutionary new layout across this boat’s deck, while a fold-out bulwark that turns into a cocktail terrace makes this one of the smallest yachts ever to boast an aft-beach club. With many Galeon Yachts for sale on the market, let the expert team at SI Yachts assist you in your search for the perfect pre-owned vessel.
The 325 GTO features a recessed foredeck with a Bowrider-style forward lounge featuring a hook-shaped leather sofa, where you can spend hours in secluded bliss benefiting from both direct sunlight and shelter from spray. Towards the rear of the boat, meanwhile, there are a pair of swimming podiums either side of the engines and, of course, the much-prized fold-out cocktail terrace to port that is big enough to host four close friends. The aft-cockpit area also includes a SureShade awning, a pair of dining sofas surrounding an extending table, as well as a 32-by-78-inch wet-bar console with an electric Kenyon grill, a microwave and chilled storage. As an optional extra lucky owners can choose to install a raised sunpad above the engines for stern-facing sunbathing, while fishing aficionados can fit this area with a livewell, bait lockers and even a rocket launcher.
There is no division between inside and out on the main deck, and open aspects to the rear and side are joined by a light-weight carbon fiber roof and crystal-clear windshield glazing at the front for a sun-filled and elemental atmosphere. At the front of the cockpit there is a racing-inspired helm station with Raymarine electronics and display screens, a backlit dashboard, a joystick, a DPS virtual anchor system, trim tab controls, a pair of adaptable helm chairs, VHF radio and a door to the side-deck.
A watertight companionway door leads down to the lower deck, where there is enough room to transform this yacht from a dayboat into a true weekend cruiser. An open lounge lined in grey beechwood boasts a dining table and a U-shaped sofa that can be quickly and conveniently turned into a bed, while to stern there is a snug double cabin. Also located on this level is a main head with granite counters, a porcelain sink and an open shower fixture.
A pair of 400MHP Mercury Verado outboard engines fire the Galeon 325 GTO to speed top speeds of over 45 knots, with comfortable and efficient cruising clocking in at around 31 knots. Should you choose to leisurely glide across the waves at the slower pace of 8 knots, however, you can expect a horizon-busting range of around 240 miles, more than enough to extended weekend cruising. This yacht’s broad hull proves incredibly agile when out on the water, while owners can also choose to add a Seakeeper stabilizer system to the boat for reduced roll while at anchor.
