by Malcolm MacLean
Built in steel and aluminium to Lloyds class and MCA compliant, Galaxy was launched in 2005. Since her launch, Galaxy has enjoyed a strong reputation on the charter market.
She was refitted in 2014, when her interior and exterior were updated with no expense spared. Galaxy has a highly versatile layout that works well for intimate cruising, large charter groups and everything in-between. Among her standout features is the sky lounge, with 180 degree panoramic views, and the vast entertainment areas: a home cinema, gaming tables and a generous bar.
Her sundeck is spacious and includes an air-conditioned gym with panoramic views and a sheltered spa. Her bar, dining, snack table and sun lounging areas can be converted for a helicopter when needed.
A spacious and luxurious accommodation layout provides for up to 14 guests in six cabins over three decks. The high volume, full beam owner’s suite on the main deck is split over two levels with a private office, his and hers bathrooms and dressing areas and a raised panoramic saloon lying forward. The VIP suite on the upper deck boasts a separate dressing area in addition to the en suite bathroom, while two double cabins and two twin cabins, each with Pullman berths, complete the accommodation on the lower deck.
Galaxy was asking $26,900,000.
