Galactica Plus is a rare commodity – a 34 metre yacht, totally custom built in Holland. The design brief was so speciďŹ c that starting without a preconceived plan was the only way to satisfy all of the demands.

Galactica Plus took 31 months to complete. Our expertise in building semi-displacement yachts in aluminium and the eďŹƒciency of our hull technology delivers the best possible balance of performance and economy.

Finding the ideal location requires speed to get to interesting places quickly and range to stay, cruise and investigate. With a top speed of 27 knots and a range of 1.400 miles, Galactica Plus was built for fast cruising.


unbathing space can be shaded to perfection but if the heat gets too much, the simple solution is to slip into something cool. This is a performance yacht with enough height for a water slide and enough storage space to contain all the latest sports equipment.

Surf. Ride. Ski. Fly. Galactica Plus has a garage with double gantry cranes to rapidly launch the tender and jet ski that powers the flyboards.

As the sun goes down Galactica Plus proves that she has the space and sophistication of a cruising yacht as well as the performance of a sports boat. It is such a hard balance to achieve but it is even harder when it has to be built to Heesen quality standards.

Lots of deck space, lots of entertaining space. The main saloon features oversize sofas and a home cinema set up concealed in the sideboard. For dining, choose to sit inside in comfortable surroundings or dine al fresco on the aft terrace. Woodwork in Australian walnut and mother-of-pearl impress with their immaculate finish.

There is an atmosphere of calm that comes from the silence throughout the interior. The unmistakable quality of Heesen craftsmanship is inescapable.



he Owner’s decision was to have fewer guests in larger cabins providing greater comfort. Galactica Plus sleeps up to eight guests in the master suite, a double and one twin on the lower deck and a VIP double on the main deck.

crew sleep on the lower deck where the quarters provide independent access to the main deck galley and forward to the technical areas of the foredeck. Not surprising on a 50 metre yacht but an unusual feature in one of 30 metres. Engineered to the highest standards, Galactica Plus was built to MCA and IMO Tier II emission codes.
