In the world of luxury superyachts, Galactica is in a class by itself.
Built in 2016 by yacht builder Heesen from the Netherlands, Galactica is the world’s largest all-aluminum superyacht, making its 30-knot top speed unparalleled in yachting. If you’d like to make a statement with a custom built yacht, you’ll do exactly that with Galactica – the largest aluminum build and fastest yet.
The Ultimate Superyacht
Quick and sporty at 262 feet long, the current owner calls Galactica his “ultimate superyacht.” The technical ingenuity required to make the vessel seaworthy had Heesen’s top engineers in a conundrum. The answer lay outside the boating industry, in the construction industry’s I-beam.
A helipad doubles as a cinema with seating and a screen folding into the deck after use. The glass-bottomed pool on the main deck reflects the sun’s rays on the beach club area below. Increasing the amount of both natural and artificial light throughout the boat was a major request.
Galactica made an appearance at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2018 and may do so again this year since it is for sale. One of the most elegant Monaco luxury villas is without a doubt Villa Desiree overlooking the breathtaking French Riviera coastline. Offering more than 5,000 square feet of prime living space, this home provides a game room, theater, gym along with an outdoor heated pool, BBQ and a gorgeous outdoor dining space. When you choose to stay at this opulent home, you will have full services and around-the-clock support from your LVH team.
