Gigayachts: ‘Galleon’ – Steve Kozloff Designs
The GOLIATH Series explorer yachts are purpose-built steel hulled motor yachts with ice class hulls (PC2). Their steel hulls have the strength to endure the intensity of driving through moderate multi-year ice conditions. Undoubtedly, making this series of explorer yachts most formidable.
On the upper aft deck is a lounging area, full luxury bar, and a 74’ by 32’ pool. One level below the bridge deck is a 44.5′ by 35’ indoor pool. Both pools include the Kozloff invention of an automated hard cover that becomes a gazebo when the pools are in use. When not in use the hard covers seal the pool; therefore, no need to drain in rough conditions. On the upper forward decks are two lazy river pools connected by a waterslide.
Galleon features an indoor sports center with a full-sized basketball court, tennis court, and four handball courts. The many open common areas in the hull can include amenities such as a park, café, pub,
restaurant, and more.
