The largest yacht in the history of Heesen Yachts has launched. Formerly known as Project Kometa (or Y/N17470), the 70-meter Fast Displacement Hull Form superyacht has now been christened Galactica Super Nova.
She's the largest superyacht built by Heesen to date, and with the benchmark of yachts entering the Top 100 Largest set at 78.3 meters, Galactica Super Nova comes in just a few meters under the world’s largest rankings.
Size, however, has little to do with this yacht as this yacht offers far more. The revolutionary Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) technology by Van Oossanen Naval Architects and the addition of a third engine to power a booster jet, means Galactica Super Nova will be able to reach top speeds of more than 30 knots.
The design was drawn by Espen Oeino, with interior decor by Sinot Yacht Design.
Galactica Super Nova’s toys and tenders are housed in the garage located forward, which doubles as a beach club. Other key features include a large swimming pool on the main deck aft with a contra-flow system for swimming, a waterfall and integrated Jacuzzi. This glass-bottom pool allows natural light to filter through to the beach club below. Forward on the main deck is a touch-and-go helipad which doubles as an outdoor cinema.
She accommodates up to 12 guests in six staterooms, with the master suite on the main deck forward, four guest cabins on the lower deck and a VIP on the wheel house deck aft.
She will be undergoing extensive sea-trials in the North Sea before being delivered to her owners in May before heading to Montenegro and the Mediterranean for the summer in time for her debut at the Monaco Yacht Show 2016.
