Galeon MD heads downunder for SCIBS

After just three years in the US, Galeon is ranked number one in imported vessels in the highly competitive 40 to 70ft segment. Poised to enter the Australian/NZ market, Galeon is hopeful its award-winning models will turn heads for their array of ‘game changing’ innovations.

Founded by the Kobylko family in 1982, Galeon operates two production facilities – one relatively ‘old school’ and the other cutting edge, with all the latest CNC machinery – an indication of how Galeon combines traditional boatbuilding skills with latest-generation technology to build just about every component in-house. The company even mills its own teak decking. The first factory is located inland, near Gdansk, where the company build 30 to 49 feet models, transportable by truck, tank tested and sent to dealers, or to their marina where sea trials are conducted.

25kms away on the other side of Gdansk, connected by River to the Baltic sea, is where they build 50ft models like the Galeon 500 and up. All the sea trials for the larger models are conducted on-water on the River or the Baltic Sea. The company has its own marina, cranes, travel lifts and infrastructure needed for manufacturing the bigger boats

Galeon has become Poland’s largest motor yacht builder with an output of 100 vessels per annum. The highly contemporary, award-winning Galeon line of motor yachts has grown to comprise models from 30 to 78 feet and is considered class-leading across its range, offering unparalleled modern styling, innovation and cutting-edge marine technology in every vessel.

The Managing Director of Galeon Boats, Grzegorz Tuszyński, known as Greg, is headed to Australia for the 2019 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show to officially launch the marque into the Australian and NZ markets. Alexander Marine Australia based on the Gold Coast, is the dealer for Ocean Alexander and Galeon yachts in Australia and New Zealand and Greg will meet and mingle with clients of Alexander Marine Australia and enjoy the atmosphere of Australia’s premier boat show.
