With over 500 square feet of relaxation space and an onboard masseuse, the brand-new 180.5ft (55m) Galene is redefining the charter experience for a new generation of wellness lovers and thrill-seekers. Meaning serenity, tranquility and calmness in Greek, a Galene yacht charter means enjoying the ample outdoor space including a vast sundeck as well as soothing designer interiors which provide a welcome retreat after a long day out on the water. Built by Amels and launched in spring 2020, this is a truly unique chance to charter a completely new yacht as she sets off on her very first Caribbean and Mediterranean adventures.
Those looking for an active charter experience will be thrilled by Galene’s range of water toys which include jet skis, water skis, sea bobs and paddleboards to name just a few. She’s also equipped with a couple of tenders for fishing trips, exploring local towns and cultural hotspots, or popping ashore for a beach barbecue. Galene also offers impressive performance stats with a top speed of 15 knots and a range of 4,500 nautical miles at an average cruising speed of 13 knots.
Outdoor living is big onboard Galene thanks to a wealth of gorgeous exterior spaces designed by the legendary Tim Heywood. Start the morning with sea views and a lavish alfresco breakfast in the informal dining area on her sun deck before taking a dip in her supersized jacuzzi or sunbathing on the ample sun pads and loungers.
After a lazy morning relaxing or an adrenaline-packed adventure on the water, lunch is served on the main aft deck which offers shade from the heat of the midday sun. This is also a great spot to enjoy afternoon or evening cocktails thanks to the comfortable sofas offering great views all around.
Spacious, chic and full of natural light, Galene’s interiors provide a soothing ambiance to help you unwind after a busy day exploring onshore or playing with her many water toys. Neutral hues and contemporary furnishings add flair and elegance, while there are clear hints of Art Deco influence which is a hallmark of interior designer Laura Sessa Romboli’s unique style.
Her roomy main lounge offers plenty of space for relaxing with a drink and a good book, formal dinners with family and friends, or just watch the world drift by. Double doors open directly onto the main deck aft, making it easy to step outside for a drink in the sunshine or simply a breath of fresh air. Upstairs is a second lounge space which makes the ideal evening hangout for watching a movie together or enjoying some live music from the piano. There’s even a games table to keep the kids and the adults entertained.
Galene’s stunning full-beam master stateroom is located on the main deck and boasts his-and-hers bathrooms, a super-king bed and ample lounge space. There’s also a charming private fold-out balcony which is the perfect spot for morning coffee or just a moment of tranquility as you admire the stunning sea views.
On her lower deck, you’ll find four beautifully appointed guest cabins, two of which are configured as double cabins and the remaining two as twin cabins. Decorated in light neutrals in a chic and contemporary style, each guest room is the ideal place to relax thanks to the blackout shades and versatile lighting options which include floor-level and subtle ceiling lights. Two of these cabins also boast a Pullman bed which can be ideal for charter guests traveling with children.
In total, a Galene yacht charter is able to host 12 overnight guests along with a talented and hardworking crew of 13 to ensure you enjoy a perfect charter experience.
