Alexander Marine are pleased to have AGAIN SOLD the exciting Galeon 500 Fly 'Penny Anne'.
The 500 Fly is a bold and brave design by Galeon Yachts with many innovative features rarely seen in a Sport Yacht of this class and size. 'Penny Anne' is truly a magnificent vessel speaking right to the heart of the most devoted host. When the engines are off and the anchor is down, she transforms into an entertainer's dream. Entering the boat from the stern, the impressive transom immediately commands attention. Featuring an expansive teak platform, the hi-lo built in swim platform sinks down into the water offering safe and easy access to all water activities including the launch of personal watercraft. When not housed in the dedicated garage, the tender can also fit comfortably on the platform.
Unlike traditional boating layouts with the stern lounge area facing forward into the cockpit, Galeon have taken full advantage of the 360-degree water views with the addition of a carousel swivel lounge area. The C shaped lounge can be positioned anywhere on the arc always guaranteeing the best views possible. Described as a waterfront terrace, this area gives waterside dining a whole new meaning. This feature alone persuasively convinces 'Penny Anne's' guests that the 500 Fly was one of Galeon's mastermind designs.
Just when you think you have seen it all, this vessel becomes even more impressive. Stepping from the cockpit through the three-segment glass sliding doors, you enter the heart of the boat. An exciting feature of the Galeon 500 Fly are the folding bulwarks. When lowered they create a pair of balconies, maximising your anchorage experience and expanding the beam in this aft section to an incredible 20 feet. This is an innovative use of deck space on both sides of the boat for entertaining. To port, the galley extends out onto the side deck, transforming the space into an open-air bar. On the starboard side, the reversible lounge backrest gives you the option to face into the galley or more preferably, out over the water, forming an alfresco café area come day lounge. The side windows also slide forward, opening up the entire saloon. The uninterrupted view of the surrounding waterway gives a true understanding of what it means to be afloat.
High-quality finishes elevate the elegance of 'Penny Anne's interior. The galley to port is fitted with Corian benchtops complemented by walnut cabinetry. Equipped with a two-burner induction cooktop and stove, fridge and freezer, the galley is fully functional for extended coastal cruising or an impromptu weekend on the bay with family and friends. Forward of the galley is the main saloon featuring a telescopic walnut dining table to port and integrated helm station to starboard. When not underway, the double-width helm seat can be adjusted to face inward, concealing the helm station while offering additional seating for guests.
In line with the entertainer's dreamboat, the flybridge of 'Penny Anne' offers another space to spoil your guests. Accessible from the aft deck, steps lead upstairs to an area high above the waterline offering spectacular views. The secondary helm station is situated to port, with a dining area to comfortably accommodate 12 guests. The wet bar is a compact unit featuring a fridge, sink and storage cabinet. If you are still in need of more space for entertaining guests or perhaps escaping the crowd with your loved one to watch the sun go down, the forward deck offers a comfortable lounge area perfect for a relaxing afternoon.
Luxury accommodation consists of the three-cabin, two-bathroom layout. The Master Stateroom and VIP Guest Cabin offer first-class accommodation to the owner and your special guests. Both cabins are surprisingly spacious, have substantial headroom and are fitted with enormous skylights allowing natural light to pour in down below. The second guest cabin located starboard is fitted with two twin-sized bunk beds. The owner's cabin has its own opulent ensuite bathroom with the second bathroom of equally high standard serving guests.
The boat's primary helm station is located in the main saloon, offering an inclusive position for the captain. The console is functional consisting of two 12" navigation displays, a Volvo Penta 7" digital Electric Vessel Control panel, dual lever throttles and thruster control, autopilot and vessel service switches. Performance-wise, the Galeon 500 Fly has been reviewed as a trustworthy luxury sport yacht. Powered by two Volvo Penta D11-670 horsepower diesel engines with V drive transmissions, 'Penny Anne' sits nice and level at her sprint 30 + knots. These vessels are highly regarded for their agility underway and excellent manoeuvrability with twin shafts, stern and bow thrusters. The engine room is accessed below the saloon floor with room to move around all sides of the engine with the ability to access important everyday maintenance. Insulation on this vessel is first-rate, sound barely noticeable above. 'Penny Anne' has a fuel capacity of 1,800 litres housed in two stainless steel tanks. And a water capacity of 650 Litres.
With so many extravagant features, 'Penny Anne' is definitely one of the most exciting mainstream boats on the market today. You are invited to book a private inspection to view this vessel. If you are unable to travel to inspect this vessel, we would be pleased to offer you a personal guided video call tour with one of our yacht consultants. She is lying at Alexander Marine Head Office, Queensland, Australia and importantly is available for immediate delivery.
