Text: Galactica Star took less than 30 months to complete following the laying of the keel in early February 2011, but the design and development process began much earlier in the summer of 2009. All in all, the entire procedure from concept to completion took some four years.

Text: Heesen relies on its own workforce to assemble and weld all its aluminium hulls and is one of the few shipyards in the world today with the expertise to build a 65 metre yacht entirely out of aluminium. In fact, it has perfected aluminium welding to such a fine art that when it came to attaching the superstructure to the hull, the tolerances could be measured in millimetres.

Text: This delicate operation was managed with military precision on a wintery morning in early December 2011, after which the yacht took up residence in a specially lengthened shed for further welding and fitting out.

Text: Galactica Star was officially launched on March 25, 2013, and less than six weeks later she left the shipyard in Oss to make her way down the Maas River for sea trails in the North Sea. Along the way she had to pass under several bridges, sometimes with just 40 cm of headroom to spare.

Text: During sea trails it quickly became evident that the contractual top speed of 27 knots had been a conservative estimation when Galactica Star repeatedly broke the 30-knot barrier. More than four years after the groundbreaking concept was first proposed, followed by many months of development, engineering and construction, Galactica Star was a living, breathing superyacht ready for delivery and her maiden voyage.
