This incredible piece of technological luxury is wrapped in a head-turning exterior design by world renowned designer and naval architect Espen Øino, who worked on a pre-established engineering platform provided by Heesen Yachts’ in-house experts.
Galactica Super Nova is not only the biggest yacht built by famous shipyard Heesen Yachts to date, but she is also one of the top 200 largest yachts in the world and one of the fastest yachts for her size.
Heesen Yachts has been building fast yachts since 1978 and during that time they have become world leader in the field. With exterior lines by Espen Øino and interior design by Sinot Exclusive yacht Design, GalacticaSupernova is both an evolution of Heesen’s long experience in the superyacht sector and also the result of a specific research into what the market wants and expects. GalacticaSupernova is the result of what is perceived as a growing market demand for fast transit speeds, seamlessly combined with the high level of comfort and space traditionally associated with displacement yachts.
The new 70m FDHF motor yacht utilises the revolutionary Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) technology devised by van Oossanen Naval Architects, which Heesen was the first to put into production. Thanks to the addition of a third engine to power a booster jet, GalacticaSupernova will be capable of reaching atop speed of more than 30 knots.
“Galactica Super Nova will be extensively tested in the North Sea before being delivered to her owners in May 2016. After her maiden voyage from the Netherlands to Montenegro, she will cruise in the Mediterranean for the summer season before finally making her public debut at the Monaco yacht Show,” announced the shipyard.
12 guests will be accommodated in six staterooms with the master suite on the main deck forward, four guests cabins on the lower deck and a VIP found on the wheel house deck aft.
“The atmosphere is relaxed and informal, understated and inviting yet extremely refined. A wide range of leathers – from galuchat to very soft calfskin – form the basis of the interior decor that includes a variety of stones such as calacatta luccicoso and various onyx. The stand-out feature in the interior is the central staircase with a crystal elevator. Steel, nickel, chrome, wood and leather flow together to form a magnificent and grandiose architectural helix,” added Heesen Yachts.
