The Galeon 380 Fly is a 39-foot express cruiser yacht with a flybridge that was produced by Polish boat-building company Galeon between the years of 2012 and 2019. This third-generation yacht was an instant hit with discerning buyers around the globe upon launch due to its sharp, Tony Castro-designed profile, aggressive lines, masses of dramatic glazing and clever use of deck space. With up to three lower-deck bedrooms available, this yacht is an ideal, entry-level weekend cruiser for the whole family.
Despite the flybridge’s compact size there is more than enough room for sun-kissed relaxation up top, with a full-beam rear sunpad for three guests adjoining a starboard side L-shaped sofa. Across from this there is a port-side helm station with two piloting chairs, conveniently protected from spray thanks to a wrap-around Venturi-style windshield. One level down and there are plenty of other sunbathing spots, not least out on the foredeck where a double-width modular sunbed offers marina-facing views safely enclosed by stainless steel guardrails. To the rear of the vessel there is a full-beam, teak-lined bathing platform with a swim ladder and side steps up to a sheltered aft-deck with a transom sofa and an optional outdoor breakfast table.
Stepping into the salon through sliding glass doors with stainless steel frames you will discover seating for half a dozen guests across a loveseat and an L-shaped lounge sofa, with plenty of glossy cabinetry to aft. At the front of the walnut or oak-lined cockpit there is room for more seating or the option of installing a main-deck open galley with a two-zone hob, marble-effect work-tops and under-counter chilled storage. You will also find the walnut fascia-lined main helm station here, where budding owner-operators will enjoy utilizing Raymarine monitors, a joystick, power-steering and bow thruster controls to chart their novel course across the seas.
There is room for up to five overnight guests on the lower deck, across a spacious VIP cabin to the bow with a skylight and a double island bed, a double cabin to starboard and a single berth to port. Alternatively, you can opt to forego the extra double cabin to make room for a dinette with a galley. There is a single head on this level and a separate, fiberglass-lined shower stall, while three hanging lockers cleverly hidden behind timber-lined surfaces provide plenty of storage space. The Galeon Yachts shipyard does an excellent job at creating spacious cabins for overnight trips.
You can expect top speeds of up to 35 knots when piloting the Galeon 380 Fly at full-throttle, thanks to your choice of shaft or stern-drive engines. Options include twin Volvo Penta D6 380MHP diesels or a pair of Cummins QSB 5.9 engines, with cruising speeds of around 8 knots offering a range of some 333 nautical miles.
