What ever happened to M/Y Galu - Part 1


Sometimes, well known superyachts just seem to disappear off our radar for a couple of years, and we loose track of them. One of these yachts is the 1977 Benetti Galu.

In the first years after her launch, the yacht's original owner made much use of the yacht. He used her up to four months a year, and cruised over 6,000 nm each season.

About ten years after her launch, Galu was sold to White Yachts Inc of America, and underwent a major refit at the Codecasa yard, which gave her an new Bannenberg designed interior. During this refit, her tenders were moved from the upper aft deck, up to her sundeck, leaving the upper aft deck to function as the sundeck. It spans nearly 20 metres.

We would love to see some recent photos of the yacht, so if you have seen her lately, please drop us a line!
