Heesen’s Galactica Super Nova Shines Brightly
Delivery of Heesen’s stylish, full custom, 70-meter Galactica Super Nova confirms her status as one of the largest, and one of the fastest, yachts to date. The slender, high performance Fast Displacement Hull Form, designed in tandem by Heesen’s in-house team and Van Oossanen’s Dutch naval architects, takes the yacht from a standstill to 30 knots in just 75 seconds.
Two fixed-pitch propellers, driven by two MTU wing engines, assist a central Rolls Royce booster water jet, enabling Super Nova’s extraordinarily efficient performance. The largest Heesen project to date, Super Nova maintains noticeably quiet and ultra-maneuverable operation housed in a chic, head-turning profile.
The high quality build, underscored by 35 years of yacht building experience, was completed in just 41 months. The delivery ensures she will be more than ready for a September debut at the Monaco Yacht Show.
