Galactica Super Nova is not just big and sporty looking. She is also one of the fastest yacht in her size with a top speed of 25 knots, powered by two MTU diesel engines with a maximum power of 4,300 KW each. With the addition of a third engine is possible to break the 30 knot point. Her operation range is 4,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 14 knots.

Beside a well-known shipyard with high quality standards is the list of the designers like a VIP list too: Espen Oeino is responsible for her exterior design, Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design created her interior and Van Oossanen did the naval architecture job.

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

Galactica Super Nova accommodates twelve guests in six cabins. The master stateroom is forwarded on the main deck. The “normal” guest cabins are on the lower deck while one VIP cabin is on the wheel house deck.

After her sea trials, Galactica Super Nova will start her life with a maiden voyage to Montenegro. Her debut will be at the Monaco Yacht Show 2016.
