No question, Galaxy is an exquisite yacht, a product of Benetti’s naval architecture technicians, made even more effective and enjoyable by its owner’s participation and innovation. The Australian owner deserves applause for his formation of the creative team – Benetti’s project manager Walter d’Avanzo; owner’s representative Neil Cheston from Camper & Nicholson; and technical surveyor Greg Morrison. That is definitely a winning team, presenting an outstanding product. <end>
