Heesen Yachts delivers 70m Galactica Super Nova

Heesen Yachts delivers its largest yacht to date: Galactica Super Nova, the 70m all-aluminium Fast Displacement superyacht.

Sold in December 2013, Galactica Super Nova  has been delivered on the 15th of may.

Galactica Super Nova’s sea trials took place over four days at the end of April in the North Sea, starting with moderate weather conditions with waves of 1.5m that progressively improved to calmer conditions with waves of 0.5m and clear blue skies.

Her aluminium hull was engineered by Heesen’s in-house specialists in collaboration with the renowned Dutch naval architects van Oossanen, who devised the revolutionary hull form.

Galactica Super Nova, thanks to her high-performance Fast Displacement Hull Form coupled with an innovative propulsion system, exceeded her contractual top speed by 0.3 knots to reach an impressive maximum speed of 30.3 knots. She further proved to be very quiet and highly manoeuvrable in all sea conditions.


Beyond the remarkable performance and cutting-edge engineering, Galactica Super Nova is wrapped in a head-turning exterior design by renowned designer and naval architect Espen Øino, who worked on a pre-established technical platform provided by Heesen. The designer was able to develop a profile that embodies Heesen’s DNA, but also introduces new design elements that make Galactica Super Nova one of the brightest stars in the Heesen galaxy to date.

Galactica Super Nova will make her official début at the Monaco Yacht Show next September
