Galeon Yachts hail from Gdansk, Poland and are being sold in the United States by MarineMax, but there’s a unique ambience to them that’s apparent from the moment you step aboard. Join us for a look at this new boat, to see it for yourself.


The 560 Skydeck premiered at Yachts Miami Beach Boat Show, and drew crowds for at least two reasons: First, the new model is called a Skydeck because the flybridge but is quite unusual. This one closes up like a clam to protect the upper helm and furnishings from the elements when not in use. A two-part shell extends from the front and aft ends, and electrically slides together to form a roof of sorts. Second, the interior leaves the eye searching for more and more unique details. The high gloss finish doesn’t just stop at the treatment of the wood. Color, texture and shape play a role in every detail of the interior. Even the galley cabinetry, with its raised woodwork detailing, stops most visitors at the door as they pause to ponder the effect.
