Designed by Philippe Briand, Galileo G was built in steel and aluminium to ABS class by Italian yard Perini Navi and delivered in 2011 as the second hull in the Vetruvius range of motor yachts. The interior theme is predominantly mahogany with wengé inserts throughout, accommodating up to 12 guests in five cabins comprising a main deck full beam master suite, two doubles and two twins, all with full en suite facilities.
The ice-reinforced steel hull blends uncompromised performance by utilizing maximum waterline length, efficient underwater hull shape and purposeful styling to create a complete design platform, enabling her to circumnavigate the globe.
She is able to traverse the coldest climates and is fitted with extra-thick plating, an enormous satellite dome for navigating beyond 70-degree latitudes, iceberg radar, rudders with ice knives, super-tough propellers and heated deck gear. In warmer latitudes, she caters for serious diving and is equipped with sonar for wreck hunting - and to top it all off, there is even a rope swing on the main deck. Her top speed is 14 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 9,000 nautical miles at 11 knots with power coming from two 1,575hp Caterpillar 3512 diesel engines.
Galileo G was asking €19,950,000.
