Heesen motor yacht Galactica Star sold at auction

Heesen motor yacht Galactica Star sold at auction

The 65 metre motor yacht Galactica Star, listed for auction by Josh Gulbranson at Fraser, has been sold with the buyer introduced by Burgess.

Galactica Star is an all-aluminium motor yacht based on the Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) developed by Dutch naval architects Van Oossanen & Associates and delivered by Heesen in 2013. Powered by twin 4,300kW MTU 20V 4000 M93L engines, this truly innovative hull design increases the overall performance of the yacht by around 30 per cent. To ensure guest comfort, she is fitted with zero speed stabilisers.

Galactica Star has an exterior design by Omega Architects and an interior by Bannenberg & Rowell accommodating 12 guests in a full-beam master suite on the main deck, a VIP suite on the upper deck and four double cabins on the lower deck, all with en suite bathroom facilities. Special features include an aft duplex beach club comprising a 10 square metre side balcony, a 22 square metre swim platform, bar, sauna and a hammam, lit with natural light coming through the glass bottom of the main-deck swimming-pool.

Forward on the bridge deck a spacious seating and table area leads to a large area that acts as a dancefloor as well as a touch-and-go helipad. The upper aft deck offers outside dining, while the sun deck includes an aft spa pool, bar and dining area amidships under the radar arch, a buffet station and forward seating and sunning spot.

Galactica Star was offered for auction with a bidding floor set at $42,000,000.
