Heesen 56m superyacht Galvas delivered
The yacht, which began construction in January 2017, features exterior design by UK-based studio H2 Yacht Design. Horizontal design elements include the windows in the hull and swooping lines that come down on both decks.
The fully custom yacht features a fast displacement steel hull developed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects and aluminium superstructure.
LY3 compliant, this 770GT yacht offers accommodation for up to 12 guests split between six staterooms, including a 85 square metre owner's suite on the main deck, complete with its own gym, steam room and office. Four lower deck double cabins and a bridge deck VIP complete the guest accommodation on board, while the crew quarters will allow for a staff of up to 13 people.
Reymond Langton Design penned Galvas's interior décor working to a brief calling for a "rich and refined atmosphere" with "subtle design details". Key materials include light fiddle back sycamore combined with pale taupe leathers, bronze inlays and white onyx, while several pieces of custom art designed by DKT feature throughout the yacht.
Power comes from a pair of MTU 8V4000 M63 engines for a top speed of 15.5 knots. When trimmed back to 13 knots, Galvas has a transatlantic cruising range of 4,300 nautical miles. Tenders and toys are stored on the foredeck, ensuring that the lines are not disrupted.
