The Galeon 780 Crystal is an 80-foot luxury motor yacht with a flybridge that was produced by Polish yacht-building company Galeon between the years of 2011 and 2020. This flagship yacht was Galeon’s biggest and most ambitious ever when first released to the public, and the 780 Crystal’s sleek, Tony Castro-designed exterior, lavish internal design and wealth of deck space was proof positive that this firm could build on a much larger scale. Ideal for extended family cruising or for hosting extravagant parties in the summer sun, this yacht’s three decks are bound to impress even the most discerning buyer.
This yacht’s teak-lined flybridge tapers out to full-beam at the rear to provide space for either tender storage with a hydraulic crane or a sprawling, U-shaped rear seating lounge. Further forward and sheltered from direct sun by a hard-top with a retractable sunroof you will find a u-shaped dining sofa surrounding a breakfast table next to a port-side jacuzzi spa pool. There is also room up here for a walk-in wet-bar with a Kenyon grill, Corian counters, an ice-chipper and chilled storage, as well as a forward sunpad and an upper helm with unimpeded views out across the foredeck.
The wealth of outdoor space continues one level down, where a Portuguese Bridge-style sofa on the foredeck is matched with a marina-facing sunpad for up to three sunworshippers. To the rear there is a full-beam hydraulic swimming platform capable of lifting a Williams jet tender, and side steps up to a sheltered aft-deck with a transom dining sofa and a wet-bar station.
A symphony of walnut or oak surfaces, bronze-effect paneling, Alcantara suede or leather furnishings, cinema-screen side windows, recessed lighting and stainless-steel trim awaits as you enter sliding glass doors and step into the main deck salon. Here you will discover a lavish U-shaped sofa and a loveseat where up to a dozen guests can enjoy sophisticated evening soirees. Ahead of this there is a formal dining table for up to six guests and a semi-enclosed galley with marble or granite work surfaces, a four-zone ceramic hob, a convection oven and a full-height fridge-freezer tower. At the front of the cockpit there is a modern helm station sitting underneath a six-mullioned sunroof with a pair of adjustable leather helm-chairs and a port-side skipper’s door. The dashboard boasts a trio of Raymarine touch-screen panels, an optional joystick, bow thruster controls, Humphree trim tabs, a Boening monitoring system and Ray91 VHF radio.
Up to eight guests can enjoy a good night’s rest aboard the Galeon 780 Crystal, across four en-suite cabins with knife-insert hull windows, sedate mood-lighting and plush carpeting throughout. A pair of amidship twins are joined by a double stateroom to the bow with a skylight, a work-desk, hidden storage and a walk-in closet, while to aft there is a full-beam owner’s stateroom with a king-sized bed, bedside cabinets, a side sofa, a desk or vanity station, upholstered wall panels, a walk-in dressing room and a bathroom with couple’s sinks and a waterfall shower.
A pair of MAN V12 1800MHP diesel engines provide top speeds of around 33 knots, while at the more leisurely cruising speed of 10 knots you can expect a range of 1,600 nautical miles.
