Designer Tony Castro and Galeon Yachts unveil the 780 Crystal
UK based Tony Castro Naval Architects have been working closely with Polish yacht builder Galeon to produce their new flagship, the 780 Crystal - set to premiere later this year. The striking exterior features an optional coloured hull, a glass panel over the helmsman station and a spa-tub on the flybridge – unusual on a craft of this size.
The layout follows a conventional approach, but Galeon has taken it a step further with lots of attention to detail and practical thinking such as a motorised sunscreen to provide cockpit shade and a very practical washroom cleverly packaged under the flybridge staircase.
The large saloon windows exude a sense of space and create an open-plan feel. The Saloon doors fold discretely away extending the saloon into the cockpit placing the bar accessible to all. Moving forward one is greeted with a sociable seating arrangement, then a formal dining table to port and open plan galley to starboard along with a generously equipped interior helm position.
The contemporary interior style is distinct, elegant and sophisticated whilst three different layouts options will cater to most tastes.
