Heesen delivers its largest yacht to date – the Galactica Super Nova
After completing intensive sea trials in the North Sea, Heesen Yachts has announced the delivery of its largest yacht to date, the 70m Galactica Super Nova. An extremely thorough pre-design phase, developed during more than 35 years of yacht-building experience, resulted in a very efficient construction process that allowed the full-custom vessel to be built and delivered in just 35 months. As evidenced in this film, the yacht has been built with a head-turning exterior design by renowned designer and naval architect, Espen Øino.
Thanks to her high-performance Fast Displacement Hull Form coupled with an innovative propulsion system, during sea trials Galactica Super Nova exceeded her contractual top speed by 0.3 knots to reach an impressive maximum speed of 30.3 knots, and proved to be highly manoeuvrable in all sea conditions. With acceleration from 0 to 30 knots in just 75 seconds, Galactica Super Nova is not only one of the 200 largest yachts in the world, but also one of the fastest!
