MarineMax Announces Partnership with Galeon Yachts
At a special press event held at the MarineMax Pompano store, MarineMax announced they are partnering with Galeon Yachts to introduce the brand to the U.S. market and become the exclusive Galeon Yachts representative throughout the Americas. Galeon has been manufacturing yachts for more than 30 years and is recognized throughout Europe and around the world for its commitment to innovative designs and exceptional craftsmanship.
“We were determined to find a brand that could successfully compete with the more affordable pleasure yachts that recently began being imported in the market. After extensive research and the recommendation of our friends at Volvo Penta, we discovered Galeon Yachts and their many satisfied customers,” explained MarineMax Executive Vice President of Sales Marketing and Manufacturer Relations Chuck Cashman.
MarineMax will carry ten Galeon models from 38–66 feet including the Galeon 500 Fly which won the 2015 IBI Boat Builders “Innovative On-Board Solution” category. The 500 Fly won the award for its significant feat of designing and producing unique fold-down sides that create a remarkably large open aft deck.
Galeon Yachts are handcrafted by over 500 experienced craftspeople implementing the latest marine technologies in a modern and well equipped 280,000 square foot facility. All components are custom built in the factory assuring consistent quality throughout the construction process. The advanced operations are governed by cutting-edge management systems and state-of-the-art production technology.
“Galeon combines old-world craftsmanship with the latest boat building technologies. The results are that every detail on a Galeon Yacht is painstakingly built to the highest standards by experts in their respective fields,” continued Cashman. “With exceptional exterior and interior options, customers can have their boats tailored specifically to where and how they boat, making each Galeon Yacht as individual as its owner.”
