Galeon’s 560 SKY is an interesting combination of two designs that seem to come together quite nicely. On one hand, she’s a low and sleek hardtop express cruiser with an opening sunroof that lights up the salon and helm area. On the other, she’s a flybridge yacht with an elevated command station and gathering area.

By introducing the 45 Divergence, Ocean Alexander whose previous smallest vessel was a 70' yacht, delivers an uncharacteristic outboard-powered, open boat they describe as a “day yacht.” As would be expected from Ocean Alexander, it inherits many yacht-like qualities. It is available in two base configurations, Coupe or Sport. BoatTEST.com tested the Sport version.
