Stepping up into the main salon, the dining settee is to port, while to starboard, there is an opposing love seat arranged from two movable ottomans which can be placed at the table for dining. The walnut dining table is both folding and telescoping. While the space is climate controlled, the windows can be electronically opened to allow a free flow of air. With the bulwarks deployed and all doors and windows retracted, the Galeon 500 Fly opens up almost entirely to the atmosphere. The speakers for the entertainment system are mounted in the overhead and the television is cabinet mounted behind the love seat to be raised and lowered. The passage to the lower deck and cabins is forward and positioned on the center-line.
From the aft deck, the galley and salon areas are accessed by a three segment, folding glass door which has a flush threshold with the deck. Immediately to port is the galley, making it centrally located between the main salon dining area and aft cockpit, as well as easy access from the flying bridge directly above.
The galley counter tops are Corian, with both a work top and a serving shelf. There is a two burner electric induction cooktop with a lighted overhead extraction fan. A refrigerator with freezer and microwave are incorporated into the walnut cabinetry. The twin-basin stainless steel sink is under mounted into the countertop and there are overhead cupboards as well as storage cabinets below the counter.
The galley countertop converts into a bar serving area when the port gunwales is deployed and window retracted. To the right of the galley is the starboard-opposing sofa with the convertible backrest as shown below.
Centered amidships and down three more steps is the owner's cabin. The queen-sized bed is positioned on the centerline with storage lockers beneath. Night stands are integrated on either side of the headboard with sconce reading lamps above and there is a lighted wardrobe closet. To starboard, there is a dresser beneath the hull side window, and beneath the port window is a vanity desk.
The master's head is accessed directly from the stateroom, has a Corian countertop with a decorative glass bowl sink, electric flush toilet, and separate shower with a wooden shower seat and glass door. An over-head skylight, as well as hullside windows, with an opening port light provide natural light to the space. It has an exhaust fan.
Forward lies the VIP cabin. A double bed with drawer storage beneath and a lighted wardrobe locker appoint the space. Hull side windows run the length of the bulkheads, while above, the horizontal windows on the foredeck allow natural light to fill the cabin. Accent lighting, sconce reading lamps on either side of the headboard, and overhead lighting also provide illumination.
Within the starboard guest cabin are two twin-sized bunks and storage lockers. The guest head is located opposite to port and is appointed similarly to the master's head with Corian countertop, decorative bowl sink, electric toilet and shower. The head serves as a "Jack and Jill" entrances with both guest staterooms and is the day head.
Entertaining and gathering continues aboard the Galeon 500 Fly by ascending the steps from the aft deck onto the flying bridge, which feels more like an entertainment area unto itself than simply a secondary location from which to operate the yacht. Enough seating exists to accommodate a dozen guests. Aft is a broad settee, full folding table, and storage beneath.
The forward seating section of the settee is reversible to allow a rear or forward facing backrest. Forward of the settee is a full-sized sun pad which encompasses the full breadth of the bridge. Aft by the stairs you can find your control for the retractable roof which can be pulled back completely to allow sunlight through. The hard top is an option on this boat that makes this Galeon 500 FLY very special.
Aft of the upper helm station you will find a BBQ, sink, specially set to make all meals delicious as ever. Storage underneath as well!
Boarding the Galeon 500 Fly from the swim platform, three steps to either port or starboard lead up into the teak soled aft deck, where the rotating settee is located. The aft cockpit is shaded by the flying bridge overhang
On both the port and starboard sides, the Galeon 500 Fly offers a feature yet to be seen on a boat of this class and size. Folding bulwarks on the side decks fold down, creating an additional entertaining area of nearly 90 sq. ft. (8.36 sq. m) when both are deployed. Each has five vertical stainless steel stanchions, which have safety line that runs at a height of 29" along the outside edge of the "new" deck. However, when the safety line and stanchions are removed, this makes a place from which to dive or jump into the water.
The side windows also slide forward, opening up the entire salon to the sea air.
The salon sofa on starboard side converts into either a sun pad or lounge, while on the port side, two bar stools can be affixed outboard of the galley countertop. This arrangement creates a fantastic outdoor bar.
On the aft deck you have the aft Cockpit Rotating Settee/Sun Pad.The aft cockpit settee, which includes a telescoping teak table, rests upon a rotating swivel, allowing the settee to rotate a full 360-degrees, so that it can face forward, toward the swim platform or any angle in between. When the table is lowered, the settee converts into a sun pad.
Beneath the settee is a dinghy garage that, when the settee is faced forward, can be opened from the swim platform to allow access to stowed water toys, fenders, and gear, which, when replaced, are kept conveniently out of the way. As an option, the space can also be fitted to serve as a crew berth.
The 4' by 14' teak swim platform spans the full breadth of the beam of the Galeon 500 Fly and accommodates a tender with tender chalks already installed on the boat. A collapsible three-step stainless steel swim ladder is also incorporated on its starboard side.
The helm is integrated into the salon, as seen in the photo above, and the doublewide helm seat rotates to face inboard. The console consists of two 12" navigation displays, a Volvo Penta 7" digital Electronic Vessel Control panel, dual lever throttles and thruster control, autopilot, and vessel service switches. Conveniently positioned above the console are all system, pressure, temperature, and level indicator gauges.
Propelled by two Volvo Penta D11-670 horsepower diesel engines with V-drive transmissions, the 500 Fly has a fuel capacity of 476 gallons (1,802 L) in two stainless steel tanks. The yacht is cooled by a 69,000 BTU Condaria chilled water air conditioning system which is powered by both 50 Amp shore power and an Onan 15 kW generator. She carries 172 gallons (651 L) of water along with a 16 gallon (61 L) hot water heater and has both grey and black water tankage of 103 and 63 gallons (389 L and 238 L) respectively.
