The evening started with a cocktail reception at the outdoor lawn area, with a live jazz duo performance. Then the guests were invited to walk the red carpet to the hidden berth area. Asia-Pacific Boating team were among the guests.
Eric Noyel, the founder and CEO of Asiamarine, delivered a speech on board, introducing the renowned shipyard and special features of Galeon 500 Fly. After the speech, the guests enjoyed a private tour on board led by the Asiamarine team.
Awarded “European Powerboat of the Year 2016”, the Galeon 500 model brought a series of innovations to the Galeon Range. Based on a completely new hull, the 500 Fly will offer an amazing amount of interior space on all three decks – a staple of all Galeon third generation yachts. The first hull would arrive at Hong Kong later this year.
With three distinct aft configurations to choose from, the 500 Fly offers flexibility when it comes to cockpit arrangements.
Buyers can choose between a full-sized garage with a sundeck above, a L-shaped sofa and crew cabin setup or the rotatable-seat option that also includes a compact garage.
The beach mode extends the width of the cockpit to 5.8m by dropping down both the port and starboard sides.
The bow rest area comes with a transformable seating arrangement. An automated system will quickly alter the sundeck configuration into a seating area and auto-level it to a proper position. An optional, soft-top bimini is also available for extra protection.
The flybridge can be fitted with a wet bar, sundecks and a second helm station for easier maneuvering. With two different garage options and a powerful hydraulic bath platform, people can choose between a variety of water paraphernalia.
On the main deck, the glass doors can move out of the way and reveal a saloon closely linked to the cockpit area thanks to a flush floor and sliding side windows. A bright interior of the saloon is also fitted with dining areas as well as a helm station.
Down below, three cabins and two bathrooms await the passengers for a total of six berths. The master cabin, located midship offers a double bed, a walk-in wardrobe and a private bathroom for extra privacy. Two guests can enjoy the bow VIP cabin. The guest cabin also sleeps two and can be turned into a wardrobe or an additional leisure area. All quarters offer standing height and have access to natural light.
Both the IPS and shaft drive options will be available along with a choice of powerful engines and high-tech electronic and navigational equipment.
