Allwave Italy's newest model of OC-1 is the Galea. Named after the ancient Mediteranean's favorite seafaring vessel, the Galea's design is derived from years of research in marine technology and physical testing. From the Oracle to the Galea, a new series of prototypes were developed until the right balance of speed and ocean manuverability were met. The Galea is 20 ft. 7 inches, of which most is waterline. It has a sharp bow, moderate flat section and very tense stern lines, imparting a very low resistance and high speed in all conditions. It has ample volume for heavy paddlers and rough water bouyancy, but not an excessive beam line that pushes water or hinders a smaller paddler's performance. It cuts the water and reacts well in the waves.

The adjustable footwell is the first in the OC-1 class, allowing different paddlers the freedom to chose where they want to situate their weight. Coupled with a comfortable foam seat that is slightly recessed and adjustable on a sliding system, the Galea allows paddlers of varying length and weight the freedom to chose where they want to situate their weight on the hull. Iakos are black alumimum with a spring pin system and adjustments in the ama to chose trim options based on paddlers' weight and ability. The footwell drain is the very efficient venturi system implemented directly as a template to improve performance. Steering cables are made with spectra rope to eliminate stainless steel corrosion. Hull and ama construction is 100% vacuum bagged vinilepoxy, carbon sandwich allowing a stiff, durable and light weight product.
