We get regular requests for reviews of smaller budget boats and this yacht tour delivers exactly that. The Galia 700 Sundeck has a starting price of just £60,000…
Galia is the sister brand of Galeon and this outboard-powered range of boats runs up to 7.7m. This Galia 700 is the 7m option and you can have it in a couple of different layouts. This is the Galia 700 Sundeck version, but you can also have it as a bow rider and there’s an extended cabin version as well.
Prices start from just over £60,000, but this boat here with a 200hp Suzuki turnkey package – which means it’s got a chartplotter, a bow thruster, a sea toilet and shore power – is £80,000 ready to go.
The Galia 700 Sundeck is a really usable little package. What’s nice is that this dinette here is sunken down, so you get a bit of protection from the windscreen, so if you’re bow on the wind when you’re at anchor for example, you have a bit of protection.

We task Nick Burnham with finding four used boat gems for under £50,000
Both of these seats swivel round so they can meet this dinette table, and this section here flips up so you have an aft-facing chaise longue.
Enjoy the tour…
