|Asia Marine introduces the Galeon 500 Fly|
This luxury leisure craft is designed by awardwinning designer Tony Castro and built by Galeon Yachts a Poland-based motor yacht builder. Galeon Yachts are distributed in Asia by Asia Marine Yacht Services in Hong Kong. "The Galeon 500 FLY revolutionary concept created a big buzz at the Cannes Boat Show last year - says Vincent Tabuteau CEO of Asia Marine. The boat features a unique 'beach mode' function, which extends the width of the cockpit to six meters by dropping down both the port and starboard sides. It is the perfect setting for our tropical waters cruising grounds in Phuket. "
Asia Marine was appointed Thailand's exclusive dealer in December of 2015 and the first GALEON was ordered at the Phuket International Boat Show (PIMEX) in January. The motorboat is expected to arrive in Phuket in September. When it comes to innovative features and pure excitement the Galeon 500 Fly has no equal—let yourself be amazed by this ultimate party boat! Highly customizable, with three distinct aft configurations to choose from, the 500 Fly offers flexibility with cockpit arrangements. Choose between a full-sized garage with a sundeck on top, a classic L-shaped sofa and crew cabin setup or the innovative rotoseat option that includes a compact garage.
Best of all – all three will let you take full advantage of the unique beach mode that extends the width of the cockpit to a stunning 5,8 metres by dropping down both the port and starboard sides. The bow rest area comes with a transformable seating arrangement - first for a yacht in this segment. A swift, automated system will quickly alter the sundeck into a comfortable seating area and auto-level it to a proper position. An optional, soft top Bimini is also available for extra protection.
Up top, the sizable flybridge can be fitted with a wet bar, sundecks and a second helm station for easier maneuvering. With two different garage options and a powerful hydraulic bath platform you can choose between a variety of engaging water paraphernalia.
The main deck reveals a closely-linked saloon and cockpit areas with a flush floor and sliding side windows. Serve refreshments straight from the galley or even set up an outside bar to your guests amazement. The bright interior of the saloon is also fitted with leisure and dining areas as well as a functional helm station with great visibility.
Down below, three cabins and two bathrooms await the passengers for a total of six berths. The master cabin, located midship, offers a double bed, large wardrobe and a private bathroom. Offer your guests the bow VIP cabin for spectacular night views thanks to a series of skylights. The double guest cabin can be turned into a study, wardrobe or an additional leisure area.

Despite the relatively young history of the Absolute Shipyard, which begin in 2002 in Piacenza, near Milano (Italy), the company's founders and current owners have been part of the nautical world for a long time and the shipyard is one of the most modern boatbuilding facilities in the world. The entire life cycle of an Absolute power yacht takes place in the factory, where every production phase has been designed with the aim of improving efficiency in the process, while promoting safety and respect for the environment. This extends from the structural design to the assembly and from yacht testing in the pool to the finalized sale.
Technology and innovation permeate the whole site. First, a geothermal system for airconditioning in various departments allows for a steady cool temperature from the well water (approximately 150 meters deep), without siphoning off from the aquifer; this structure is supported by home automation for control and processing of the various environmental parameters in the departments: ventilation, air cleaning, temperature, brightness, etc. Second, the implementation of a totally automated vertical warehouse provides all the production lines with the necessary components quickly and easily.
Absolute's objectives have always been linked to the creation of an innovative and luxurious power yacht range, both from the stylistic and the technological point of view. This look at the future was well expressed through the first slogan "The Absolute Wave", in which the image of a wave expresses in a very evocative way the path of innovation that goes on without stopping, never forgetting its origins. Later, the company strongly signified with its international pulse and its deeply rooted national identity with the slogan "From Italy with love".
Absolute has had progressive and constant expansion in its commercial network along with the consequent diversification of its markets. Absolute's production headquarters is in Italy, but its commercial network extends well beyond its borders thanks to investments throughout Europe, in North and South America, the Middle and Far East and Oceania. Absolute lists 35 dealers in 24 countries on all continents, and this network is still growing.
Absolute has always looked to foreign markets. Since 2003, the company has taken part in the Cannes Yachting Festival and has been exporting to main European markets such as France, Spain, Croatia and Germany. Company expansion also saw Absolute set up offices in Russia, Jordan, Turkey & Australia, giving ship owners all over the world the chance to know and appreciate the quality and elegance of the boats from Piacenza.
Each market has its needs. For this reason, Absolute motor yachts covers four Absolute Shipyard is different ranges: Flybridge, SportYacht, SportLine, and the newborn Navetta.
