  1. Heesen launches 40M megayacht "Galatea"


    On January 17th, during a private ceremony at the shipyard facility in Oss, YN 15640, the first 40-meter Heesen ‘sportster’, was launched and christened M/Y "Galatea". She is the true incarnation of Heesen DNA; with advanced aluminium hull technology, powerful performance, uncompromising interior design and peerless Dutch construction standards. M/Y Galatea has the optimum balance of comfort and power: she may have marble bathrooms among her luxurious interior design features, but she’s still capable of 27.5-knots.
  2. Frank Laupman of Omega Architects has created an interior design that has a distinctive personality based on a theme of Dutch expressionism. Contrasting woods, simple clean lines, marquetry and glass detailing create an atmosphere of calm, contemporary elegance. M/Y Galatea has been built for private use, with a requirement that the sun deck had maximum space for relaxing and dining.

    Her open flybridge layout gives a huge 85-square meters of deck space that includes a helm station and a shaded dining area that is protected even underway by glass side panels. Bespoke teak furniture, including a built-in teppanyaki grill, completes this upper deck. Inside, the 10-meter long saloon includes a large square lounge and a dining area aft adjacent to full-height glazed doors. With the doors open, guests can dine inside while enjoying fresh air and panoramic views. Ten guests can sleep in five cabins: there’s a full-beam main deck master, two full-beam VIP doubles and two twin cabins on the lower deck, all of which have marble ensuite bathrooms. M/Y Galatea will be tested in the North Sea and be delivered to her Owners at the end of March 2014.
