60m explorer yacht GALÀNA by Nicolò Piredda

This concept won the Young Designer of the Year Award 2018 by Boat International as the event organizer and Oceanco as the main sponsor.

An eye-catcher is the curved glass surface for the bridge with full-height windows that reminds me a bit of a winter garden. A similar design can be found on the sundeck, the windows can be opened (second picture). In front of the bridge is a lot of space for a lounge and sunbathing area with a pool. The aft deck with two pools can be used as a helipad.


GALÁNA has a dining area for up to 16 persons located forward on the main deck. The accommodation is planned for twelve guests (including owners). The guests sleep on the lower deck in two VIP suites, two double bed cabins, and one twin bed cabin. On the lower deck is also the area for 15 crew with two crew mess areas (almost full-beam) and own staircase to improve the guests’ privacy. Another crew staircase is forward with direct access to the mooring area. The owner has the area on the bridge deck aft with a fixed balcony.

The main saloon features balconies on port and starboard. The lounge saloon (between main saloon and dining) can be transformed into a cinema with a sliding wall.

The gym is at the aft with direct access to the bathing platform together with the tenders & toys storage.
