Polish yacht-builder Galeon has announced that works is underway for its new 305 HTS model.

The project is for an entry-level hardtop based on the hull of the recently launched 300 Fly. The new model features a dynamic exterior design for a lower profile and a changed main deck with an open layout. A generous aft sundeck is sure to please all sun enthusiasts and doubles as an extra storage area. The main deck features two rest areas protected from the elements allowing passengers to rest.

Above the ergonomic helm station, a sizable sunroof can be manually operated to bathe the interior in natural light in a matter of seconds. Outside, wide side decks lead to the bow rest area with two mattresses divided by a series of skylights. A practical, elongated stern platform is available, providing an extra 80 cm of space for activities or a small dinghy.

The yacht offers accommodation for four passengers, a compact galley and a bathroom. The saloon has an open layout where the bow rest area can be quickly transformed into a double bed, maximizing the available space during the daytime. A walk-in aft cabin offers more privacy thanks to the full sized doors separating it from the main living area.

The builder says a selection of diesel and petrol engines will be made available with both single and twin installations. The compact frame of the Galeon 305 HTS is best suited for day cruising, but was designed to handle even harsh weather conditions.

In addition, Galeon has announced that the recently launched Galeon 300 Fly will be available for test trails in Cannes in September.
