Heesen Yachts is proud to announce that they have signed a contract to build a fully custom 70m Fast Displacement all aluminium motor yacht of 1.200 GT. The keel of this project, YN 17470, was laid in October (2013) and the yacht is due for delivery in Spring 2016.

UPDATE May 19, 2016: Galactica Super Nova aka Project Kometa has been delivered

The Owner has chosen Espen Oeino International to design the exterior lines and Sinot Design for the interiors.

Espen Oeino comments:

“Espen Oeino International is delighted to collaborate with Heesen Yachts and Sinot Design on what will be Heesen’s largest yacht to date and our first joint project. EOI has put particular emphasis on respecting Heesen’s distinct external appearance whilst incorporating the client’s specific wishes into the design.”

Sander Sinot comments:

“Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design is privileged to be working with Heesen Yachts on this 70 metre motor yacht project; we are looking forward to a wonderful collaboration. Sinot is working on the interior design with a collection of materials that are luxurious and refined, but at the same time will provide a relaxing environment”.

Twelve guests will be accommodated in six staterooms. The large Owner’s suite, traditionally located forward on the main deck, will measure some 85 square metres and includes a generous dressing room, a spacious bathroom and a study. Four guest cabins will be located on the lower deck and a VIP cabin on the wheelhouse deck will boast stunning views.
Some notable features include: a gigantic infinity pool on the main deck aft; a beach club with a large swimming platform aft and a port-side platform; and a luxury elevator in steel and glass that connects the three decks. The tender garage with gull-wing doors is positioned forward below the foredeck and a touch-and-go helipad will be located forward of the bridge.
The sundeck offers flexible sunbathing and shaded areas – it will be partially covered and well protected with sliding doors forward and lateral retractable glass panels will offer shelter from the elements.

The propulsion package provides for three main engines driving two wing propellers and a central booster water-jet giving a trial speed expected to be over 30 knots.

YN 17470 will be fully LY3 compliant. Her crew of 16 will be accommodated in 8 cabins all with private shower rooms.
