17 August 2021• Written by Malcolm MacLean

The 70.07 metre Heesen motor yacht Galactica Super Nova has been jointly listed for sale by Burgess and Arcon Yachts.

Built in aluminium by Heesen to a design by Espen Oeino International, she was delivered in 2016 as the flagship of the Dutch shipyard.

Galactica Super Nova is asking €75,000,000.

She welcomes 12 guests in six cabins. The full-beam owner's suite is forward on the main deck and features onyx panels and his and hers bathrooms are linked by a large walk-in rainfall shower. There is a VIP apartment with elevated views on the upper deck, complete with en suite, private study and a lounge that can convert into a seventh guest cabin, a second study or a staff cabin. There are four double cabins, all en suite, on the lower deck.

Her huge sun deck has an oval observation lounge forward of another lounge area with coffee tables. Sliding glass screens keep the wind away from the fully equipped sit-up bar, buffet and open-air dining area. All of this section is shaded by the hardtop. Aft of this is a lounge area with custom club chairs and sun pads surrounded by glass screen to preserve the views while blocking the breeze.

The main deck aft has a six metre infinity pool with resistance jets, spa jets, glass panels in the bottom and an atmospheric waterfall feature below skylights in the overhang above. Forward of the pool is a lounge area and aft steps lead down to a large swim platform.

To starboard, the side deck leads forward to steps leading up to the multipurpose foredeck, which serves as a touch-and-go helipad, outdoor cinema with a four metre screen rigged on removable carbon poles and surround sound, as well as sun loungers and entertainment space. Tenders and toys are stowed below and launched through shell doors.

Twin 5,766hp MTU diesel engines driving propellers and a 4,184 MTU-powered booster jet combine to give her a top speed of 30 knots and she also has a transatlantic range of 4,000 nautical miles at her passage speed of 12 knots. Quantum stabilisers keep her guests comfortable at anchor and underway.
