The Galeon Yachts 425 HTS is a two-stateroom, two-head express cruiser with admirable performance and clever flourishes.
The Galeon 425 HTS is an all-weather cruiser with a retractable hardtop and nearly 360 degrees of glass in the superstructure. Close up the hardtop’s roof, salon door and window aft to keep the main deck dry and warm. Or cool. The yacht is standard with 32,000-Btu Dometic air conditioning. Open the sunroof, salon door and windows to create an open-boat feeling.
For entertaining, the cockpit layout has a sun pad over the transom garage for catching rays on the hook. A cockpit table with opposing settees is the place for an alfresco lunch. There is also a foredeck sun pad for a couple. The salon has an L-shaped settee and table to starboard, and just flip up the salon window aft to keep guests inside and outside within earshot.
The yacht’s helm station is forward to starboard on the main deck and it has a double-wide, bolster-style seat, single-lever controls, joystick and Zipwake trim system control. A Raymarine electronics package with A127 chart plotter and fishfinder, 4 kW radar with radome, VHF with AIS and autopilot, is optional.
On the performance side, the 425 HTS is powered with twin 370 hp Volvo Penta IPS500 diesels and it has a 28-knot cruise speed and a 32-knot top hop, according to the builder.
For meal prep, the 425 HTS’s galley is equipped with a two-burner cooktop, Corian countertops, Isotherm refrigerator/freezer and a microwave.
When it comes to weekend or longer cruises with the family or friends, the yacht has a two-stateroom, two-head layout, including a full-beam master stateroom amidships with a queen-size berth and en suite head. There is also a forepeak VIP with a queen-size berth and en suite head.
There are several wood options to personalize the 425 HTS, and they include dark walnut cabinetry in a matte finish or gloss walnut. Beach wood grey is also an option. The soles can be striped walnut, misty grey or marbled grey oak. Upholstery can be beige or white.
Some other options include Samsung LED Smart TVs, teak cockpit, carpet runners, cockpit refrigerator and Cablemaster, to name a few.
