    Heesen 40-meter "Galatea" completes sea trials


    Heesen has announced that following the launch on January 17th at their facility in Oss, the new 40-meter sportster "Galatea" moved to Hellevoetsluis for sea trials. On March 4th and 5th, in perfect sea conditions, Galatea achieved the impressive speed of 29.7-knots: 2.2-knots above the contractual speed.

    Powered by twin 3,800 HP MTU engines and equipped with gyro-stabilisers, Galatea is the first in a new breed of Heesen superyachts. She derives from the very successful 37-meter class, of which 10 have been built, so her pedigree is clearly excellent. With her perfectly designed all-aluminium semi-displacement hull, Galatea is the incarnation of Heesen DNA: powerful performance, uncompromising interior design and peerless Dutch construction. Galatea will be delivered to her Owners by the end of March 2014.
