The Galeon 800 Fly is an 83-foot luxury motor yacht with a flybridge that is due to launch in 2022. Designed as a collaborative effort between Polish yacht-building firm Galeon and legendary naval stylist Tony Castro, this fourth-generation vessel will be one of the Galeon’s largest, showcasing the innovation for which the company is rightfully known. Cutaway gunwales, a lightweight carbon-fiber body, masses of dynamic glazing, ultra-contemporary hand-finished interiors and three dedicated external sunlounges make this the ultimate party boat, while the latest navigational tech and powerful engines offer a superb ride.
The teak-lined flybridge on this model tapers out at the rear to provide space for either a C-shaped leather sofa with room for up to 12 guests or for tender storage with a hydraulic lifting crane. Adjacent to this is a jacuzzi spa-pool that connects to a low-slung 10-seater sofa and a pair of extending cocktail tables, while to starboard there is a walk-in wet-bar with a Kenyon grill, an ice-chipper, fridge-freezer units, a frosted glass serving bar, marble-effect work surfaces and a sink. At the front of the bridge, meanwhile, and positioned beneath a hard-top canopy with a retractable sunroof, there is the upper helm station and a forward sunpad lounge with views out across the bow.
Main-deck outdoor spaces prove to be just as impressive as those on the upper deck, with a Portuguese Bridge-sofa out on the foredeck joined by a modular set of sunpads with marina-facing views. Out towards the stern there is a full-beam hydraulic bathing platform and side steps up to a sheltered aft-cockpit with a C-shaped transom sofa and a wet-bar console.
Floor-to-ceiling glazing, sliding glass doors, side-doors, wind-down windows, a retractable sunroof and cutaway gunwales make the Galeon 800 Fly’s internal salon one of the most open and breezy ever seen. To aft there is a spacious lounge clad in your choice or oak or walnut with a trio of plush sofas, a home entertainment system, refined carpeting and an Art Deco-inspired corner bar where up to a dozen guests can enjoy sophisticated evening soirees. Amidship there is an L-shaped dining sofa and an open galley with a kitchen island, Corian counters, a four-zone hob, an induction oven, a wine chiller and under-counter fridge-freezer units, where you or your chef will be able to concoct Michelin-inspired cuisine. At the front of the cockpit there is an L-shaped sofa and a pair of adjustable helm chairs surrounding the main deck piloting station, where the very latest Raymarine electronics, thruster and trim tab controls, power-steering and engine feedback provide everything needed to chart your course far beyond the horizon.
There is room on the lower-deck for up to eight overnight guests across four en-suite cabins, including a VIP double to the bow, a pair of amidship twins and a full-beam owner’s stateroom to aft. This owner’s room benefits from a walk-in dressing room with timber-lined closets, a marble-lined bathroom with a couple’s shower room, a king-sized island bed, panoramic hull windows, a work desk and space for a loveseat or fitted armoire.
The Galeon 800 Fly’s top speed is expected to reach around 30 knots, a significant achievement for a yacht of this size, while engines are slated to be provided by either MAN or MTU, a departure from Galeon’s norm of sticking with Volvo.
