Heesen launches 70 metre superyacht Galactica Super Nova

Written by

Following her star-studded christening ceremony last month, Super Nova has seen daylight for the first time since she was moved into her build shed at Heesen Yacht’s facility in Oss, the Netherlands. The 70 metre Espen Oeino designed vessel, with naval architecture by Van Oossanen Naval Architects, is the Dutch shipyard’s largest yacht to date, following the 2013-launched Galactica Star, designed by Omega Architects. Enjoy exclusive video footage of the launch here.

Galactica Super Novafeatures an exterior profile that celebrates Heesen’s DNA whilst incorporating various unique design elements to really make her stand out from the crowd. Her bright, sophisticated interior design comes from the drawing boards of Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design, who worked closely with the owner to create a timelessly luxurious yet understated environment perfect for both relaxed moments with friends and family as well as a refined setting for entertainment.

She accommodates up to 12 guests on board over several well appointed cabins, including four guest cabins on the lower deck, an impressive VIP suite on the wheelhouse deck aft, and a large owner’s suite forward on the main deck.

Outside, her tender and toys are housed in the garage in the forward part of the hull, which enabled the team to establish a generously large beach club. A large swimming pool is found on main deck aft with swimming, a waterfall and integrated Jacuzzi for relaxing, while the glass bottom of the pool allows natural light to filter into the beach club below. Forward on the main deck, a touch-and-go helipad is found, which is transformed into an outdoor cinema for cosy nights in a spectacular setting.

Galactica Super Novawill be extensively tested in the North Sea before being delivered to her owners in May. Upon completion of her maiden voyage from Netherlands to Montenegro, she will enjoy her first summer season cruising the Mediterranean before being officially presented to the industry at the 2016 edition of the Monaco Yacht Show.
