With launch in 2016, mega yacht GALACTICA SUPER NOVA (Project Kometa, YN 17470) is an outstanding 70-metre vessel, constructed by the leading Dutch manufacturer, Heesen Yachts. Boasting a sleek, elegant profile by Espen Øino International, striking interiors by Sinot and the revolutionary Hull Vane technology by Van Oossanen Naval Architects, luxury motor yacht GALACTICA SUPER NOVA represents the perfect combination of speed, space, as well as style.

Galactica Super Nova has won five international awards including Best Naval Architecture – Displacement Motor Yacht award and Best Design Feature at the ShowBoats Design Awards 2017 in Kitzbühel.

Accommodation aboard Heesen GALACTICA SUPER NOVA is provided to up to 12 guests in 6 beautifully appointed cabins. These include a full-beam master suite, one VIP cabin and four double guest cabins.

GALACTICA SUPER NOVA boasts an amazing 357m2 of deck space. From her breath-taking sun deck to beach club, there are twelve alternatives for guests to choose from, including sunbathing, dining, spa, Jacuzzis, jet-pool or just lounging around in the sun or shade.

The vessel features advanced technology, including the revolutionary fast displacement hull, a ground breaking fixed pitch propeller and a Rolls Royce central booster jet. Her foredeck can be used as touch-and-go helipad, sunbathing, informal dining or transformed in outdoor cinema. In addition, there is a 6-metre swim-jet infinity pool with waterfall, glass panelled bottom and spa jets for hydro massage, 44 m2 space of platforms unfolding from the 146m2 beach club, as well as shaded sun deck that includes sunpads, barbeque, bar, dining area and lounge. The upper deck combines with the sky lounge to create an enormous indoor/outdoor entertainment area of 92m2.

Utilising the Heesen’s revolutionary fast displacement technology, the all-aluminium GALACTICA SUPER NOVA can reach an amazing maximum speed of 30 knots.

Heesen Yachts Comments: "Devised by van Oossanen Naval Architects the Fast Displacement Hull Form of Galactica Super Nova has been thoroughly optimised using extensive CFD analysis that led to design a more stretched aft body, further improving efficiency.

The angle and position of the fin stabilisers were meticulously defined in order to have the maximum comfort effect with the least penalty in terms of speed. Humphrey interceptors complete the hull design ensuring comfortable, dynamic trim behaviour at all speeds.

The ultra efficient FDHF is perfectly complemented by Galactica Super Nova’s innovative propulsion system consisting of two wing engines and one central booster engine, with fixed-pitch propellers – a configuration installed for the first time on a superyacht.

With an acceleration from 0 to 30 knots in just 75 seconds, at 70m Galactica Super Nova is not only one of the 200 largest yachts in the world but also one of the fastest.
