Galactica Super Nova to make debut appearance at Monaco Yacht Show


Heesen Yachts has launched the largest yacht in its fleet a 70-meter vessel previously know as Project Kometa that has now been christened Galactica Super Nova by its new owners. It will make its debut appearance at the Monaco Yacht Show.

The vessel uses the revolutionary Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) technology devised by van Oossanen Naval Architects, which Heesen premiered. Due to the addition of a third engine to power a booster jet, Galactica Super Nova will be capable of reaching a top speed of more than 30 knots.

Galactica Super Nova includes a quad ski housed in the garage located in the forward part of the hull. Other key features include a 13, 500-liter pool on the main deck with contra flow system for swimming, a waterfall and integrated Jacuzzi for relaxing, while the glass bottom of the pool allows light to filter into the beach club below. It also includes a helipad that doubles as an outdoor cinema. The exterior design is by naval architect Espen Øino.

Twelve guests will be accommodated in six staterooms with the master suite on the main deck forward, four guest’s cabins on the lower deck and a VIP found on the wheel house deck aft. The stand-out feature in the interior is the central staircase with a crystal elevator. Steel, nickel, chrome, wood and leather have been used for the structure.

Galactica Super Nova will be tested in the North Sea before being delivered to her owners in May 2016. Following her maiden voyage from the Netherlands to Montenegro, she will cruise in the Mediterranean until the Monaco Yacht Show.
