Galeon 560 Skydeck (2017-)

Brief Summary

The Galeon 560 Skydeck flying bridge provides the skipper with an excellent view of the water ahead while still maintaining the sleek lines of a Euro-styled express cruiser. With the flybridge located well aft, there's space over the lower helm for the sliding sunroof. The dining and lounge areas are on the same level as the lower helm, and the yacht is full of clever ideas and finish work is top-notch.

Captain's Report

Snapshot Galeon 560 Skydeck

With the 560 Skydeck, Galeon designed a boat that has the sporty lines of a hardtop express cruiser and the functionality of a flybridge in one attractive boat. Up top, the flybridge helm is centrally and there’s a plethora of lounges where passengers can stretch out. From the aft cockpit, wide sidedecks lead to the bow area where there are adjustable seats. Inside, the main deck has a galley aft and it’s a step up to the dining and leisure areas, which are on the same level as the lower helm. A glass hardtop overhead slides aft to give the area a spacious feel. Belowdecks, the master stateroom is positioned amidships with its own private head. The VIP cabin in the bow and aft guest quarters share the second head.

The island-style berth in the master stateroom is positioned on the boat’s centerline so vessel movement will have the least effect on sleeping.
