Heesen Galatea completes sea trials and exceeds contractual speed

Heesen has announced that following the launch on January 17th at their facility in Oss, the new 40m sportster Galatea moved to Hellevoetsluis for sea trials. On March 4th and 5th, in perfect sea conditions, Galatea achieved the impressive speed of 29.7 knots: 2.2 knots above the contractual speed.

Powered by twin 3,800 HP MTU engines and equipped with gyro stabilisers, Galatea is the first in a new breed of Heesen superyachts. She derives from the very successful 37 metre class, of which 10 have been built, so her pedigree is clearly excellent. With her perfectly designed all-aluminium semi-displacement hull, Galatea is the incarnation of Heesen DNA: powerful performance, uncompromising interior design and peerless Dutch construction.

Galatea will be delivered to her Owners by the end of March 2014.
