Galac­tica Su­per nova

Yachts International - - Making Waves -

De­signed jointly by Heesen Yachts and Dutch naval ar­chi­tects Van Oos­sa­nen and Monaco-based Espen Øino, 229foot (70-me­ter) is the ship­yard’s largest build to date. While able to achieve a top speed of around 30 knots in just 75 sec­onds—mak­ing her one of the fastest and most nim­ble yachts of her size—she also prides her­self on her quiet, tran­quil on­board en­vi­ron­ment. galac­tica Su­per nova’s propulsion sys­tem, con­sist­ing of two MTU wing en­gines and a third cen­tral engine with a Rolls-Royce wa­ter-jet booster, is the first of its kind.
