As the Heesen Yachts flagship Galactica Super Nova makes its Monaco Yacht Show debut this week, we reveal 6 key facts about the build of this spectacular superyacht.

Measuring 70.07 metre LOA, she is the largest Heesen yacht to date — more than 5 metres longer than the Dutch yard’s previous flagship Galactica Star.

The audio visual system on board Galactica Super Nova is every bit as impressive as you might imagine. Heesen teamed up with long-time supplier VBH to create a sophisticated set-up that allows music to be broadcast to individual cabins or transmitted to all rooms. A grand total of ten televisions can be found on board, including this one in the saloon, which can be concealed when not in use.

Ameet Sarvayia, chief technical offer at VBH, told Boat International that the design of the audio visual system was incorporated into the build process at a very early stage. “We were able to work with the engineering team right from the start of the project and that allowed us to put a lot of new technology on board,” he added.

Creating a bright and impressive interior is imperative for a yacht of this size, and concealed LED string lights were the key to this. Heesen used more than 4,000 metres of these to brighten up all six cabins and the two main saloons.
