Last month we saw the 80m, Heesen Vessel, Project Cosmos, now known as Galactica hit the waters and leave the Dutch company’s shipyard in Oss.  Today, the 7th of Janruary 2022 marks the day the 80m vessel left her shed. Weighing in at 1,700GT vessel can reach a maximum of 30 knots. During the next year, the largest and fastest all-aluminum yacht to ever be built will for sure turn some heads.

The superyacht’s great size and high speed are what make her so impressive. This was achieved through the use of Van Oossanen’s Fast Displacement Hull Form and the expertise of Heesen’s naval architects. The yacht is powered by traditional diesel propulsion, consisting of four engines, two gearboxes, variable-pitch propellers, and innovative Promas rudders.

Heesens CEO Arthur Brouwer. “Project cosmos is unique not only for our shipyard, as she is the largest we have ever taken on and represents the pinnacle of our achievements to date. Cosmos is also unique in the industry – the largest and fastest aluminum yacht in her class ever built.”
