The Galeon 460 Fly is a 47-foot luxury motor yacht with a flybridge that was launched by Polish boat-building company Galeon in 2018. The 460 Fly delivers many of the same features to be found on the 500 Fly but on a more limited frame, making this a great option for discerning buyers who wish to pilot a smaller vessel with the sort of amenities you would expect from a much larger yacht. Along with a beach-club to the rear, a lavish flybridge and a foredeck lounge, the Tony Castro-designed 460 Fly also boasts next-generation fold-out bulwarks that turn into a pair of dramatic cocktail terraces. This Galeon Yacht received a commendation at the 2019 Motor Boat Awards held in London, England, with judges highlighting the fine craftsmanship and larger-than-life character of this compact vessel.
Though there is a full set of upper helm controls on the flybridge, this space is really all about entertaining. Three sunpads at the front are joined by a wrap-around L-shaped sofa tracing the starboard side and rear edge of the bridge to create one seamless seating area for up to a dozen guests. Should they get thirsty then head to the port-side wet-bar console, where chilled storage, a sink and a Kenyon barbecue grill should sate their desire for food and drink.
It seems as if every square inch of this yacht’s main deck has been fine-tuned to provide an exquisite set of socialising spaces, and this is nowhere more in evidence than on the foredeck. Out here there is a C-shaped forward lounge comprised of four full-length sunpads with marina-facing views, where you will enjoy hours on end of sun-kissed relaxation. The teak-lined aft-cockpit area is just as impressive, with a transom sofa that can be transformed into a sunpad, two fold-out cocktail terraces to the sides and a full-beam hydraulic swimming platform that can lift a 500KG tender.
A sliding glass door connects the aft-deck to the walnut or beech-lined internal cockpit, where an aft-galley with marbled Corian countertops, a wine cooler, under-counter fridge-freezer units, a two-zone hob, a combination oven and a stainless-steel sink provide everything needed for the aspirational chef. Also to be found in here is a rear loveseat, cabinetry, a U-shaped sofa in leather or suede and the main deck helm station. This starboard side piloting station boasts an optional Raymarine electronics system, Side Power bow thrusters, a Penta joystick, Ray91 VHF radio, rudder indicators and a Volvo Vessel engine display.
Up to six overnight guests can enjoy staying aboard this yacht as it embarks on weekend voyages, across a twin berth, an en-suite double stateroom to the bow and a full-beam amidship owner’s stateroom with a queen-sized island bed, a loveseat, a work-desk, backlit wall panels, a full-height closet and a Corian-lined bathroom with a waterfall shower. Rooms on this level benefit from Condaria climate control, recessed lighting, plenty of head clearance and panoramic views out across the rippling surface of the sea through knife-insert hull glazing.
A pair of 550MHP Volvo Penta D8 diesels fire the Galeon 460 Fly to top speeds of 28 knots, while at cruising speeds of 25 knots this yacht will consume around 40 gallons per hour.
