New Model: Heesen 70m YN 17470

Heesen is delighted to announce the launch of the largest yacht in it's fleet to date, the 70m FDHF superyacht Project Kometa. The owners have christened their new yacht Galactica Super Nova. Yard number 17470 is not only the biggest yacht built by Heesen Yachts to date, but she is also one of the top two hundred largest yachts in the world and one of the fastest for her size.  Galactica Super Nova utilizes the revolutionary Fast Displacement Hull Form technology devised by van Oossanen Naval Architects, which Heesen was the first to put into production. Thanks to the addition of a third engine to power a booster jet, she will be capable of reaching a top speed of more than 30 knots. With exterior lines by Espen Ă˜ino and interior design by Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design,Galactica Super Nova is both an evolution of Heesen's long experience in the superyacht sector and also the result of a specific research into what the market wants and expects. Galactica Super Nova will be extensively tested in the North Sea before being delivered to her owners in May 2016. After her maiden voyage from the Netherlands to Montenegro, she will cruise in the Mediterranean for the summer season before finally making her public debut at the Monaco Yacht Show.
