The Galeon 330 Fly is a 33-foot express cruiser yacht with a flybridge that was produced by Polish boat-building company Galeon between the years of 2005 and 2014. An enduringly popular option on the used and charter markets, this sleek and sporty vessel impresses with plush, hand-finished interiors, superb seaworthiness and a low-slung flybridge ideal for sun-kissed entertaining. The sister yacht of the Galeon 330 HT, the 330 Fly exchanges a glazed hardtop for an al fresco flybridge but shares the same hull and layout as its sibling.
This yacht’s compact flybridge is ideal for owner-operators who prefer a raised vantage point when commanding their vessel, and a centrally-located upper helm provides excellent visibility across the bow. Protected from spray thanks to a wrap-around Venturi windshield, the helm is joined by an L-shaped lounge sofa with a cocktail table, making this bridge a great place for socializing and relaxation. One level down and there is room for a modular sunpad out on the foredeck, while to the stern you will find a full-beam bathing platform from where you can set off on warm-water swimming. The platform connects to the sheltered aft cockpit via a transom gate, and a transom sofa with a side bench back here are just perfect for enjoying afternoon aperitifs.
Sliding glass doors framed in stainless steel lead into the main deck salon, where light oak or glossy walnut surfaces, sophisticated leather furnishings and wrap-around side windows offer an elegant and restrained appeal. To port there is a U-shaped sofa with a breakfast table, while to starboard there is an open galley kitchen with multi-tiered Corian work surfaces, a two-zone ceramic hob, a microwave, a hidden sink and under-counter fridge-freezer units. Located forward you will find a loveseat and a comfortable helm chair facing a main deck command station with Raymarine electronics, power-steering, trim-tab controls and VHF radio, from where you can chart your course to the horizon safe from adverse weather conditions.
Galeon’s inventive use of limited space is very much in evidence down on the lower deck, where a double cabin to the bow with a skylight is joined by an aft cabin that can sleep up to three across a double bed and a single, for an overall overnight capacity for up to 5 guests. There is also a capacious main head down here with marbled Corian surfaces and an open shower fixture.
A proprietary deep-V hull proves to be well balanced on the turn and helps the twin 260MHP Volvo D4 diesel engines achieve competitive top speeds that will leave rivals yachts far behind.
