 Heesen Yachts announced the launch of the largest yacht in its fleet to date, the 70m  Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) superyacht Project Kometa. The owners have christened their new yacht Galactica Super Nova.

Galactica Super Nova is a 70.07m motor yacht, custom built in 2016 by Heesen Yachts. The yacht's interior has been designed by Sinot Yacht Design and has exterior styling by Espen Oeino.
It is not only the biggest yacht built by Heesen Yachts to date, but she is also one of the top 200 largest yachts in the world and one of the fastest yachts for her size.
The yacht has a aluminium hull with a aluminium superstructure with a beam of 11.90m  (39'0"ft) and a 2.40m  (7'10"ft) draft .This custom round bilged displacement yacht is equipped with an ultra-modern stabilization system which reduces roll motion effect and results in a smoother more enjoyable cruising experience. She also features bow thrusters making her more manoeuvrable at low speeds.
Beyond size and speed is efficiency, and further more, luxury. Galactica Super Nova’s toys and tenders are housed in the garage located forward, which doubles as a beach club to bring owners and their guests much closer to the water.
The vessel is also equipped with a great selection of amenities and water toys, including a tender and quad ski, which are housed in the garage situated in the forward part of the hull. This arrangement allowed for a development of a fabulous beach club that provides the owners and their guests with the possibility to enjoy a lifestyle closer to the water.
Following her launch, Galactica Super Nova will now go through comprehensive tests in the North Sea before her scheduled delivery in May, 2016. Once delivered, she will undertake her maiden voyage from the Netherlands to Montenegro, following which she will cruise the summer in the Mediterranean, and final premiere at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
