The Galeon 370 HTC is a 38-foot express cruiser yacht that was launched by Polish yacht building firm Galeon in 2017. A sporty profile, dynamic contemporary looks, and a wealth of luxury amenities demonstrate Galeon’s reputation for building modestly sized, entry level boats with the look and feel of a super-yacht at a fraction of the budget. Based on the same basic hull design as the popular Galeon 360 Fly and designed in collaboration with industry legend Roberto Curto, this hard-top yacht transcends the day-boat limitations that its compact footprint would normally demand by providing three overnight cabins on the lower-deck and hand-finished main-deck leisure space from bow to stern.
An adaptable sun-bathing space out on the foredeck comes with a trio of modular sunpads that can be turned into one large daybed or transformed into a forward sunlounge with two flat chaise-longues and a loveseat. At the rear, meanwhile, there is a mini-bar and a removable breakfast table next to an L-shaped transom sofa that can be folded down to turn into a stern-facing sunpad. A glazed aft-gate then leads out to the full-beam, teak-lined bathing platform, from where you are likely to enjoy plenty of warm-water swimming.
You would not normally expect a yacht in this class to bear dramatic knife-insert windows along its hull or floor-to-ceiling glazing with cutaway bulwarks and an electronic sunroof across the superstructure. Yet commitment by Galeon Yachts to an unashamedly modern style ensures that this yacht’s internal cockpit remains one of the most open and luminous on the market. Retire to a diamond-stitched leather or suede sofa with a timber-topped table to port or work on your culinary skills at the main-deck galley, where Corian countertops, an induction oven with a two-zone hob and hidden fridge-freezer units provide everything needed for the enthusiastic chef. At the front of the oak or walnut-lined cockpit you will discover a single-seat helm station, equipped with Raymarine electronics, rudder indicators, bow thruster controls, a Penta joystick, hydraulic steering and VHF Radio.
Lower-deck layouts are subject to customization, with discerning customers able to choose between a three cabin and one-head scheme or a two-cabin and two-head plan. No matter which lower-deck better suits your requirements, you will still find a full-beam owner’s room amidship, complete with a double bed, a loveseat and hanging closets, as well as a large scissor berth to the bow that can be used as a lower-deck lounge. Should you decide on the three-cabin option then you will find a twin bunk berth to starboard, bringing the total overnight capacity to six.
The Galeon 370 HTC is powered by a pair of shaft-driven Volvo Penta D4-230 DPI diesel engines for top speeds of around 30 knots with cruising speeds clocking in at 25 knots. A pair of fuel tanks holding 106 US gallons, meanwhile, offer plenty in reserve for extended weekend cruising to the premier coastal destinations of your choice.
