Founded by the Kobylko family in 1982, Galeon operates two production facilities – one relatively ‘old school’ and the other cutting edge, with all the latest CNC machinery – an indication of how Galeon combines traditional boatbuilding skills with latest-generation technology to build just about every component in-house. The company even mills its own teak decking.
Galeon has become Poland’s largest motor yacht builder with an output of 100 vessels per annum. The highly contemporary, award-winning Galeon line of motor yachts has grown to comprise models from 30 to 78 feet and is considered class-leading across its range, offering unparalleled modern styling, innovation and cutting-edge marine technology in every vessel.
The Managing Director of Galeon Boats, Grzegorz Tuszyński, known as Greg, is headed to Australia for the 2019 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show to officially launch the marque into the Australian and New Zealand markets, meet and mingle with clients of Alexander Marine Australia and enjoy the atmosphere of Australia’s premier boat show.
Here, Greg sheds some light on the origins of the brand and its burgeoning clientele in Europe, the UK and the US and expectations for Australia and New Zealand.
