Galeon 430 HTC

The Galeon 430 HTC

Galeon will be out in force in Fort Lauderdale, with its dealer MarineMax showing three new models. The Galeon 430 HTC (for hard-top coupe, 43′ 6″ LOA, 13′ 8″ beam) blends the indoors and out with a wide-opening sunroof above the helm station and port and starboard opening windows.

The 460 Fly (47′ 1″ LOA, 14′ 4″ beam) has a flybridge, of course, and offers 360-degree views through large sweeping windows on the main deck. The 485 HTS (for hard-top sport, 49′ 2″ LOA, 13′ 11″ beam) mixes high performance with comfortable luxury. The helm is outdoors, until one closes the retractable aft glass and sunroof. Each of these models includes a generous-sized master stateroom with private ensuite head.

Pursuit Sport

Pursuit Sport

The Pursuit Sport series continues to gain momentum with the addition of the S 368, (37′ 11″ LOA, 12′ beam), which joins the S 408 introduced in 2016 and the S 328 (34′ 6″ LOA, 10′ 10″ beam), which debuted in Miami last February and makes its first appearance at FLIBS.

The new luxury center consoles share the Sport series traits: an oversized fiberglass integrated hardtop and windshield system, updated classic sheer line, through-stem anchoring system and integrated transom extensions. The S 368’s cabin includes a fully enclosed head, convertible sofa bench, storage and galley amenities. The S 328 has a double convertible berth and head.
Yahama F300s, twin on the 328 and triple on the 368, power both models to close to 50 mph.

Regulator 41

Regulator 41

Regulator 41

The Regulator 41 offers a newly integrated wraparound windshield that offers more protection at the helm. In addition, the aft mezzanine seat with prep and tackle center and overhead SureShade provides additional cockpit seating without compromising fishing amenities.

Redesigned tower access makes the dual helm even more attractive and below deck, an expanded cabin features a galley, double berth and spacious head with shower. Serious anglers will love the optional Taco Grand Slam 380 outrigger bases with 20-foot carbon fiber telescoping poles and huge livewell and fish-box capacity.

Powered by Yamaha’s all-new quad XF425-hp engines, there’s added stability with the Seakeeper 6 stabilization system.

Back Cove 32

Back Cove 32

The newest model from the Rockland, Maine-based builder, the Back Cove 32 (37′ LOA, 11′ 10″ beam) certainly looks like part of the family with its traditional styling. The cockpit and pilothouse meet on a single level, transitioning seamlessly into the interior, where a galley-up arrangement allows the cook to be part of the action.

Below, the cabin features an island berth and split head and shower. The systems are as straightforward as the classic design. A single diesel engine ensures fuel efficiency, and standard power—a 370-hp Volvo engine—brings the 32 to a 22-knot cruise and 26-knot top speed.

Sunseeker fans have lots to check out as four of the seven models at Fort Lauderdale are new to the U.S. market. The Sunseeker 95 Yacht (92′ 1″ LOA, 21′ 6″ beam) shows an innovative tri-level master suite with a mid-level dressing area between the main-deck stateroom and ensuite below.

The 76 (77′ 5″ LOA, 19′ 6″ beam) joins the fleet with superyacht feel and features while remaining manageable for owner-operators. An evolution of the Predator 57, the Predator 57 MKII (59′ 10″ LOA, 15′ 5″ beam) boasts refreshed exterior styling and a mini beach club.

Finally, the Manhattan 66 (68′ 3″ LOA, 17′ 3″ beam) focuses on a sociable main-deck layout drenched in natural light. Four staterooms below include a full-beam master with a private entry; crew quarters are optional.
