Galeon

Production stages

The beginning

Every single one of our models has gone a long way from being just a project on the drawing board to a finished product. The whole production process is closely monitored to meet strict quality and safety standards. All the divisions have specific goals and tasks in order to satisfy even the most demanding clients.

Steel and aluminium division

This division is responsible for all the metal and glass parts found on Galeon yachts -from simple screws, tanks and railings to sliding doors, windows and sunroofs. Skilled workers and professional operators use machines like the Waterjet to form the parts in all shapes and sizes. Quality is the key as all components are subjected to strict durability and safety standards to withstand the constant strain of usage in demanding conditions. Parts vital for functionality are constantly upgraded thanks to yacht's owners feedback.

The furniture department

From cabinet bodies, through handles, worktops, cushions all the way to beds, sofas and wardrobes – everything is crafted with precision and care. Many exotic and exclusive materials are used and quality is always a priority. The handcrafted furniture adds a finishing touch to the already spectacular interiors.

The laminates division

A special mould is created for each model. This process takes from two months up to even six for the biggest models. The moulds need to be very precise and robust as they may be used up to 200 times before needing to be replaced. All the parts need to seamlessly fit and work together to guarantee a required level of performance, reliability and looks. After the form has been shaped it is then waxed and sprayed with gelcoat, a protective and coloring material. To finish it off, a final layer - the skin coat, is added and a completed hull can be transported to the main production hall.

Main assembly hall

On the yacht assembly hall the hulls have all the necessary equipment installed and tested. All furniture is fitted along with electronic devices, bathroom fixtures and kitchen appliances. The stainless steel elements are mounted as well as the glass doors and windows. Finally the heart of every yacht, the engines, are fitted and connected. A new Galeon is ready to be tested in the special testing pool.

The testing pool

The pool is crucial for checking the hull’s balance and engine performance tests. The inspectors make sure all equipment is fitted and calibrated. The pool hall can simulate heavy rain to make sure all doors and windows are sealed properly. A check-list must be performed and approved before the yacht can be tested on the open waters. Those steps help to improve the quality and ensure the final product is up to standards.
