I recently discovered the luxury yacht referred to as the “Galatea 58″. Unlike other mega yachts, this particular water vessel was designed in a simplistic fashion. It is physically attractive, highly functional, and is definitely considered to be seaworthy.

Galatea 58Created by Costes Yachting, several individuals had input regarding the overall design of the luxury yacht. This yacht has been quoted in being “both the smallest of the large yachts and the largest small craft”. This luxury yacht is perfect for those getting started in yachting, those that are very knowledgeable in operating yachts, and even those that simply want a yacht for family outings and adventures.

A man by the name of Edoardo Caovilla worked to design the exterior area of the Galatea 58. He incorporated the use of ideas generated by Rene Caovilla in order to ensure the visual impact of the external appearance of this luxury yacht. An example of his contribution is the beautiful sinuous lines on the outside of the water vessel.

As you look upon this yacht, you will notice that it is relatively casual in design, yet still incorporates the concept of “luxury”. You will notice the design is a bit out of the ordinary when compared to other yachts, but not to an eccentric degree. All in all, I am actually quite surprised that the individuals were able to create such an amazing degree of simplicity and style in only a 58 foot yacht!

When designing the Galatea 58, the individuals had a goal of ensuring that there was plenty of space. It was also important to them to create a luxury yacht that utilized the light emitted from the sun as much as possible.

For the evening and night hours, the view is amazing. Many small cove like lights are implemented in order to provide ample but subtle lighting to the inside areas of the luxury yacht.

On the lower deck area, you will discover three amazing cabins, the convenience of two bathrooms, as well as a dining area.

There are several decorative portholes that allow a sufficient amount of sunlight to shine in the interior lower areas of the yacht. I think that they did really well as far as lighting is concerned.

As you explore the inside of the Galatea 58, you are likely to find that there is exquisite leather used on the floor area. While most yachts create ceilings from standard fiberglass, this boat uses wood that is actually lacquered.

When it comes to exterior and interior coloring, the company understands that a luxury yacht is not a “one size fits all” – for this reason, you may customize these colors as well as several other features. Many are actually striving to learn more about the Galatea 58 due to the fact that it is a yacht that can be customized in many different ways!

The engine of the craft consumes approximately one hundred and forty liters of fuel an hour and can cruise in at thirty four knots.

If you want to own a luxury yacht, the Galatea 58 is an appropriate choice – luxury, functionality, and style at an affordable price!
