NOTES AND TALKING POINTS
From the Helm, Boating Broadcast is brought to you by MarineMax, the nation’s largest boat retailer.
Full boat tours are as entertaining as they are informative. Galeon Yachts recently unveiled its new GTO series with a debut model, the 325 GTO. The first outboard Galeon in the US market is the smallest boat the Polish manufacturer has built, and one of her missions is to bring new customers into the Galeon Family. She has an open concept with convertible seating and a fold-down bulwark "patio" in the cockpit, plus an extra-wide bow seating area. Belowdecks, she can sleep 4. See the full walkthrough video from two very experienced mariners. Check out Captain Steve Larivee on BoatTEST.com's review, and Bob Burke, Brand Manager at Galeon, gives his take.
Next up, get a brand-new take on the Aquila 36 Sport Power Catamaran via BoatTEST.com's comparison between the original build and a model with the Hydro-Glide Foil System. It was developed by Melvin & Morelli, a California firm that engineered the foils used on America's Cup boats. It consists of a foil installed amidships that spans between the two hulls, plus two stabilizing fins at each hull's trailing edge in the tunnel. See the full review here.
