Truly mesmerising



Shereen Shabnam

Designed to thrill the yachting community and having won multiple awards, the sleek and elegant profile of Galactica Super Nova is a delight to the eyes and it comes with a perfect combination of speed, space and style.

The yacht at cruising speed voyages comfortably and economically for over 4,000 nautical miles as guests enjoy sunbathing, dining, spa, Jacuzzis, jet-pool or just lounging around in the incredible 357 square metres of deck space making it a yachting enthusiast’s dream purchase.

Galactica Super Nova’s head-turning exterior design is by Espen Øino, who worked on a pre-established technical platform provided by Hessen. Her profile embodies Hessen’s DNA with new design elements. The advanced technology sets the model apart, particularly with the revolutionary Fast Displacement Hull, fixed-pitch propellers combined with a Rolls Royce central booster jet.

The foredeck can be used as touch-and-go helipad or for sunbathing, informal dining or can be transformed into an outdoor cinema. It comes with a 6m swim-jet infinity pool with waterfall, glass-panelled bottom and spa jets for hydro massage.

Added bonus is the 44 square metres space of folding platforms from the 146 sqm of beach club and the shaded sundeck that includes sun pads, barbeque, bar, dining area and lounge. The high-tech lightning can also be adjusted to suit more mellow moods for romantic during dinner or cocktail receptions.

The upper deck combines with the sky lounge to create an enormous indoor/outdoor entertainment area of 92 sqm. This section is perfect for fresco dining and relaxing while overlooking the sea.

Every inch of the Galatica Super Nova is a delight – After all, some of the best shipyards in the world are found in Holland and Hessen Yachts are renowned for their innovative engineering and exceptional speed, range, stability and comfort. The yachts from Hessen use the hardest steel and the strongest aluminum resulting in the brand being the world’s leading builder of high-performance yachts.

At 70 meters overall, Galactica Super Nova is the largest Hessen Built to date. With an impressive top speed of 30 knots, the Aluminum Fast Displacement vessel is one of the fastest super yachts in her class in the world. The Fast Displacement Hull Form reduces resistance by up to 20 per cent, dramatically decreasing the amount of power required to achieve a given speed.

Galactica Super Nova’s classic-contemporary interior is a paragon of elegance and comfort. The designer worked closely with the owners to create a model that perfectly suits their lifestyle and taste. The main saloon comprises three distinct areas; a welcoming conversation zone with low coffee tables, the semi-circular library with a mesmerizing open fireplace and the formal dining area.

The Dining Room accommodates twelve guests who can enjoy formal dining in a warm and inviting environment surrounded by low cabinetry in lacewood and contrasting wengè.

The owner’s Suite has floor-to-ceiling onyx panels which is extended across the full beam of the yacht. A central walk-in rain shower connects the separate bathroom entrances and vanity units. The master suite is an oasis of space and calm and accessed via an owner’s private study.

All the guests’ cabins have luxurious ensuite bathrooms lined floor-to ceiling with marble. The VIP suite is on the upper deck adjacent to the sky lounge and has a private study and a lounge that doubles as a private staff stateroom.

Spectacular staircases are a hallmark of all Hessen yachts and in the Galactica Super Nova, it comes with a myriad of intricate, bespoke details and elaborate light installations embedded into the walls, ceiling and floors. The stair threads are masterpieces of creative design and precision detailing with fluid shapes.

The Galactica Super Nova is certainly aimed for the true stars and enthusiasts of the marine world and should prove a universal success for Hessen Yachts.
