Below, we will delve deeper into what the 2023 Galeon 560 FLY has to offer you.
Interior and Accessories
When Galeon Yachts created the 560 FLY, their intention was to design a coastal cruiser that was considered a premium option with luxurious amenities offered onboard. We can say that they definitely accomplished this.
First is the cockpit area where, without a doubt, passengers will want to gather. This area is designed for the social scene, and you will find that there are two gates, one on each side, to allow passengers the ability to get on and off the boat. Seating in the cockpit starts with an L-shaped couch that surrounds a large pedestal table. Overhead, you will find that there is an extended flybridge that helps protect you from the sun and keep you out of the heat. There is a hatch located here in the deck that leads down into the engine room.
On both sides of the cockpit, you will find that there are balconies, both of which drop down. The balcony area at the port has decking that is see-through, which allows you to look at the water as you cruise along. Seating here includes dual swivel barstools that are nestled at a flip-up counter that is flush with the galley counter. A large sliding window is located here to allow for drinks and food to be passed seamlessly to your guests. Should you choose, safety rails can be installed here to add an additional layer of security and comfort.
The balcony area at starboard is a bit different than the area at the port. Here, you will find similar features, but this area is home to a dining table that includes an expandable leaf. The seating here is plush and includes hinges on the cushions that allow you to flip them down to look at the water as you eat and chat.
The 560 FLY does come with a swim platform. There is an option to upgrade to a hydraulic option. If you do choose the upgrade, the stairs are automatically deployed when the swim platform is lowered. Located at the transom is a bench seat that flips out to create a nice seating area for passengers aboard your ship.
There is a section on the boat that is accessed by a hatch lift at the transom end of the boat. Here, you will find twin berths. Within this area, there is a window, washer and dryer combo, and a microwave.
Two decks are located on this vessel, and one is to the port side and the other to the starboard side. Both of the decks measure 18 inches in width. For safety, a 36-inch railing is installed. At the bow, you will find a mid-point where social gathering can occur. Here, there are dual 74-inch sun pads along with bench seating. Passengers can chill and sip on a cold beverage as beverage holders are close by.
While on the boat, you will find stairs located on the port side and these stairs lead upwards to the flybridge. Here are chaise lounges and an L-shaped center designed for refreshments featuring a refrigerator, grill, and sink. An icemaker sits across from the L-shaped refreshment zone and there is plenty of storage all around.
The captain’s area is outfitted with a console that includes a compass that is center mounted for convenience. Two screens are located here as well and provide data to ensure a smooth and safe ride.
