Heesen promotes innovation with Galactica Star iPad app
by Tom Isitt
Available now at the iTunes App Store, the 292MB Galactica Star app celebrates the creative and ingenious work of all the people who contributed to the creation of Galactica Star. It explores the conception and construction of Galactica Star, follows the evolution of her exterior design, and details her luxurious interiors and sophisticated naval architecture.
Galactica Star is a 65-metre all-aluminium motor yacht based on the Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) developed by Dutch naval architects Van Oossanen & Associates. Powered by twin 4,300kW MTU 20V 4000 M93L engines, this truly innovative hull design increases the overall performance of the yacht by around 20 per cent.
She has an exterior design by Omega Architects and an interior by Bannenberg & Rowell accommodating 12 guests in a full-beam master on the main deck, a VIP on the upper deck and four double cabins on the lower deck. Special features include an aft duplex beach club comprising a 10 sqm side balcony, a 22 sqm swim platform, bar, sauna, hammam, lit with natural light coming through the glass bottom of the main-deck swimming-pool.
