Starting At The Stern
Powered by twin Volvo Penta 460 horsepower engines, the Galeon 440 Fly cruises effortlessly in the 20 to 25 knot range and has a top speed of around 30 knots. The boat’s swim platform, which extends the overall length by three feet, extends from the transom and provides space for water toys. The platform has ladder access and unique steps that drop down into the water as the hydraulic swim platform descends, making it easily accessible for all ages.

Another notable feature is the boat’s drop-down sides, or hydraulic fold-down bulwarks, known as “Beach mode”. With the sides lowered and Beach Mode deployed, the teak deck extends on both starboard and port, offering additional deck space for sunbathing, lounging and enjoying the water views. The boat also provides storage for water toys, which can be accessed easily from the aft deck.
In the aft cockpit there is a fully-equipped summer kitchen with a grill, sink, cutting board, and the option to use it as an ice chest. This area is also nicely shaded and protected by the flybridge aft deck above, creating a comfortable entertainment space.
Moving inside, the interior space is defined by an abundance of natural light in the salon and enclosed main helm area, thanks to large windows. The interior exudes luxury with its textures and light colors, creating a bright and open atmosphere. The galley, located on the port side of the yacht, enables easy serving and accommodates the captain at the helm. The galley provides ample space for food preparation, featuring a stove top, microwave, refrigerator, freezer, and plenty of storage.

At The Helm
The helm station offers excellent visibility, equipped with Raymarine instruments, Volvo Penta engines, and redundant switches. The helm controls are outfitted with Volvo instrumentation and a bow thruster is also present. The sliding door by the helm provides easy access to the bow, while the large sliding doors at the back grant access to the aft deck, offering more entertaining spaces both above and below.
Below deck, the boat boasts two beautifully designed cabins. The VIP cabin at the bow features two bed cushions with a filler in the middle, creating a queen-size berth. The port-side head can be used as a day head. The master cabin, located below and full beam, includes a private head and shower, presenting a luxurious and hotel-like experience.
Moving up to the fly bridge, viewers are treated to a great view and easy access to various amenities. The flybridge features a wet bar with a refrigerator and bench seating that wraps around the helm. The second helm on the fly bridge mirrors the one below, outfitted with Volvo instrumentation and a bow thruster. The seat on the flybridge rotates to provide access to the dining table, accommodating a large number of guests. The full wrap-around bench on the upper deck offers a fantastic place to enjoy the view.

The bow can be accessed from the teak decks or through the door at the helm station. The bow features a versatile sun pad with articulating seats and a removable backrest, providing comfortable seating for three people. Additional seating is available at the bench seat, and storage compartments are present. This yacht has numerous options for outdoor enjoyment, whether it’s a day at sea or on a lake. Overall, the Galeon 440 Fly promises a fun-filled experience ideal for coastal cruising and island hopping with friends and family.
