  1. Heesen 40-meter Project "Galatea" nearing end of construction

    Dutch yacht builder Heesen is currently working on finishing-up a 40-meter semi-displacement megayacht with launching in May. The all-aluminum megayacht is based off Heesen's very popular 3700 series with notable differences. The most glaring differences comes with the extra length overall as well as the change to the sundeck region. On the 3700 model, there is a totally open-air sundeck under the radar arch, however, with the 40-meter model, "Galatea", there is cover over and around the forward half of the space. It is an 85 square meter sun deck (which can be open or hard top). Aft of the enclosed region you can come outside and enjoy a jacuzzi and large sunpadded area.
  2. The Heesen 40-meter Galatea project will have accommodation for ten guests in five cabins including a full-beam master suite with study area. The interior is based on a melding of various shades of browns ranging from dark to very light. The interior also is generally shaped by hard lines of the furniture while being softened by luxurious materials and textures as well as rounded features.

    Galatea has an LOA of 40-meters, a full beam of 8-meters and a slim draft of 2.35-meters. She is to be powered a pair of MTU 16V M73L engines and top speed is expected to be in the region of 28-knots in light load conditions. She'll have a 2,200 nautical mile range at a continuous 12-knots. All of this will be possible thanks to 36,000-liter fuel tanks. Galatea's classification is as follows; ABS , A1 Yachting Service AMS. Her launching will be towards the end of May, 2013.
