We Say: Galeon has managed to fit a host of amenities into a family-size package, from two pleasant staterooms with a separate head and stall shower to a comfy entertainment area in the salon, plus a great flybridge. The salon has twin couches and a table next to large windows. Triple sliding doors really open the cockpit. The cockpit settee cleverly morphs into a sun pad or a dining area with table and that slides aft, effectively mimicking the space aboard a 40-footer. The helm features a one-piece windshield and a tidy dash with a Raymarine monitor and two rows of clearly marked rocker switches. The galley abeam the helm includes everything needed for meals afloat.

Below, a small foyer has four doors: one to the master stateroom forward, one to the separate shower stall, one to a head with vanity, and one to a cabin tucked under the raised helm.

Easy steps lead to the flybridge that features sturdy, stainless-steel handrails, and it’s worth noting that the Polish builders are masters at stainless welding. The rails, grab bars and step supports are like jewelry. A settee with backrest, leaving room for a double helm seat forward, encircles the bridge.

Twin 370 hp Volvo Penta D6 diesels topped out near 28 knots. Even better, the ride was calm and unruffled, even in a lumpy Gulf Stream.
