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's slender 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. 

An extremely thorough pre-design phase, developed during more than 35 years of #yacht building experience, resulted in a very efficient construction process that allowed the full-custom vessel to be built and delivered in just 41 months.

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. 

The propulsion system consists of two MTU wing engines with fixed pitch propellers and a third central engine with Rolls Royce booster water jet. The first time such a configuration has been applied to a #superyacht, it provides acceleration from 0 to 30 knots in just 75 seconds, making Galactica Super Nova not only one of the 200 largest yachts in the world but also one of the fastest!
