New Model: Heesen 65m YN 16465

In spring of 2014 the first all aluminium fast displacement motor yacht was launched at Heesen’s facility in Oss and christened Galactica Star. The concept was presented to the yachting community in September 2010 at the Monaco Yacht Club and the contract for the construction of the first 65 metre Fast Displacement Hull Form was signed just one month later. Construction took place at the Heesen facility in Oss where the laying of the keel was marked with an official ceremony in February 2011. Sophisticated hydrodynamic design by Van Oossanen Naval Architects resulted in a vessel that is 30% more e efficient than a round-bilge motor yacht.  In conjunction with Heesen Yachts in-house naval architects, Van Oossanen Naval Architects also implemented the architecture. The vessel’s advanced design combines a special hybrid hull form that results in a very low wave profile over the entire speed range, while also improving sea-keeping and manoeuvrability. This provides a very positive impact on the cost of running the yacht, as well as lowering the environmental footprint due to reduced engine emissions.  When combined with Heesen’s acknowledged weight reduction expertise and a pair of MTU 5766hp, the 65 meter Fast Displacement Hull Form will be able to deliver a top speed of 27 knots as well as a very economical fuel burn and a particularly long range of 4.200Nm at 14 knots. Award-winning designers have been appointed by the Owners for this very special project: Frank Laupman at Omega Architects is responsible for the streamlined and elegant exterior lines, while Bannenberg and Rowell Design have created the sophisticated interior that perfectly complements such a dynamic and sleek exterior design.
