Reporting from the 2022 Southampton Boat Show, Hugo Andreae takes us on a full tour of the Galeon 510 Skydeck which was making its UK debut...
The Galeon 510 Skydeck is based on the same hull and lower deck arrangements as the Galeon 500 Fly, but the upper deck has been modified to upgrade the style, drop the centre of gravity and sharpen up the handling.
The flybridge is of course reduced in size but it still has room for wraparound bench seats and a pair of loungers on either side of the central helm.
And the shifting of the fly deck aft also frees up the space for a huge glass sunroof above the lower helm.

You also get a convertible bow and six-berth accommodation but it’s the aft cockpit of the Galeon 510 Skydeck that really makes the difference.
You can spec it with a full-sized tender garage beneath a sunpad; with an L-shaped sofa and crew cabin; or with an innovative spinning ‘roto-seat’.
In all cases, drop-down bulwarks enable you to expand the beam to 6m, with an outward facing settee on one side and a superb alfresco bar on the other.
