Heesen Yachts’ latest build, their largest yet, is spacious in both nature and name

Set to make her public debut at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show, Heesen Yachts’ recently christened Galactica Super Nova  – formerly codenamed Project Kometa – stands as the Dutch yard’s largest yacht to date.


The 70-metre vessel boasts a number of firsts and superlatives; numbering among the world’s top 200 in size and agile enough to stand apart in the class, she claims a top speed in excess of 30 knots plus an all-aluminium Fast Displacement Hull Form – the first ship to bear this new architecture.


Beneath the Espen Øino exterior lays a Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design interior, berthing 12 guests across six staterooms, giving what the brand perceives as a growing demand for both traditional comfort and space, paired to faster transit speeds.


Her maiden voyage will take her from the Netherlands to the Mediterranean for the summer season and her Monaco Yacht Show debut.
