Launched to much acclaim in 1997 in Viareggio by renowned Italian yard Perini Navi, the 52-metre twin screw Bermudian ketch Galaxia is the yacht that re-wrote the book for large flybridge sailing yachts.
“Simply put, she raised the standard for all sailing yachts to come,” says her YPI Sales & New Construction broker, Matt Albert. With a beam of 11.4-metre, Galaxia comfortably accommodates up to 12 guests in five staterooms.
“There are not many modern yachts in the world about which so much has been said when it comes to the experience of being on board,” says Head of YPI Charter, Fiona Maureso. “Galaxia is, however, most certainly one. All cabins are en-suite, the Owner’s Suite even includes its own Jacuzzi. There is a lot of clean deck space for dining and sunbathing and she offers a superb cocktail area forward, Jacuzzi on the flybridge, elegant aft-deck dining, a mini gym and all the toys and tenders you could need for an amazing time on board.”
Fitted with the very latest entertainment and communications systems following her extensive refit in 2006-7, Galaxia has a range of over 4,000 nautical miles at an economical cruising speed of 10 knots.
“We are very proud to have Galaxia back in both our charter and brokerage fleets,” says Matt.
Her asking price is $ 22,000,000, and her charter rate starts at € 140,000 per week.
