Update September 29, 2016: Galactica Super Nova wins awards for Best Exterior Design and Finest New Yacht of the show at the 2016 edition of the Monaco Yacht Show.

Engineering was done by Heesen’s in-house team and by Van Oossanen. Galactica Super Nova is equipped with the Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) and a full-aluminum hull. Three diesel engines – two with fixed propellers and one with Rolls Royce booster water jet power her up to 30.3 knots – so she is one of the fastest yachts in the world. She can not just big and fast, she can reach destinations in longer distances with an operating range of 4,000 nautical miles at a speed of 14 knots.

The yacht accommodates twelve guests in six staterooms. The owner lives on the main deck in a suite of 85 square meters including dressing room, bathroom, and study. Four guest cabins are located on the lower deck, a VIP suite is on the bridge deck.

She was designed to meet the requirements of the Large Yacht Code (LY3). A crew of 16 can be hosted in eight cabins. All equipped with en-suite showers.

The tender garage (including a Quadski) is located forward, so there is space for a great beach club area at the stern. During times in a port, swimmers have their area on the main deck. There is a 13,500 liters pool with contra flow system.

Galactica Super Nova will make her debut at the Monaco Yacht Show 2016 in September.
