81m Heesen yacht GALACTICA leaves Oss shed in the Netherlands

By Nina Done   7 January 2022

Following her technical launch in November 2021, the impressive 81m (265ft) yacht GALACTICA, previously known as Project Cosmos, has departed her shed at the Heesen shipyard this morning in preparation for sea trials later this month.

As the biggest and fastest all-aluminium yacht ever built with a top speed of almost 30 knots, she marks an exciting milestone for the Dutch shipyard, signalling a successful start to the year.

Winch Design is responsible for her striking exterior replete with a sporty silhouette and extensive use of glass, in collaboration with Heesen. While Sinot Yacht Design and Architecture penned her elegant interiors, characterised by subtle blue hues and clever use of light infused throughout the design.
