The Galeon 340 Fly is a 34-foot sports cruiser yacht with a flybridge that was produced by Polish boat-building firm Galeon between the years of 2011 and 2017. This entry-level model offers the ideal package for weekend cruisers, boasting three outdoor deck spaces, hand-finished luxury interiors and lower-deck cabin space for up to five overnight guests. A sharp and modern profile with plenty of glazing, a rear swimming deck, modern piloting equipment and powerful motors ensure that this model remains a popular option on the used and charter markets a decade after it was initially launched.
The flybridge on this yacht makes the most of its limited dimensions to fit in an L-shaped modular sofa that connects to a port-side chaise-longue, a rear sunpad and a cocktail table, making it the perfect al-fresco space for guests to enjoy elevated views and unimpeded sunshine. There is also room up on this level for a helm station with a pair of comfortable piloting seats, so that owner-operators can feel the rush of the wind in their face.
One level down and you will discover a double sunpad out on the foredeck, as well as an aft-cockpit lounge with a transom sofa. The cockpit connects to a full-beam, teak-lined bathing platform with an optional ladder, from where guests can enjoy many hours spent swimming. Stepping into the salon through sliding glass doors, you will discover a sedate lounge area lined in dark wengewood or pale oak, with furnishings in your choice of suede or leather. There is a U-shaped dining sofa and a table to port, with an open galley to starboard featuring a two-zone hob, a sink and below-counter fridge-freezer units. Sharply angled side glazing and a virtually wraparound windscreen keep this space feeling light and airy at all times, and also ensure that the main deck helm station boasts superb visibility. The helm down here features the latest Raymarine electronics, thruster and trim tab controls, VHF radio and an optional docking joystick, as well as forward-facing seating for three.
Galeon have once again demonstrated their flair of maximizing usable space across a restricted footprint by fitting three beds into this lower deck. A master stateroom to the bow features a skylight, a double island bed, a pair of hanging lockers and plenty of hidden storage, while an aft-cabin hosts a snug double bed and a full-height closet, and this sits alongside an open single berth for a total overnight occupancy of 5. You will also find two heads on this level, one with an all-important open shower nozzle.
A pair of Volvo Penta D4 300MHP stern drive engines or 320MHP Mercury QSD 4.2 diesels help this yacht reach top speeds of 35 knots at full throttle, with comfortable cruising speeds in the mid to high 20 knot range.
