Luxury yacht Galatea has been built for private use, with a requirement that the sun deck had maximum space for relaxing and dining. Her open flybridge layout gives a huge 85 square metres of deck space that includes a helm station and a shaded dining area that is protected even underway by glass side panels. Bespoke teak furniture, including a built-in teppanyaki grill, completes this upper deck.

Inside, the 10 metre long saloon includes a large square lounge and a dining area aft adjacent to full-height glazed doors. With the doors open, guests can dine inside while enjoying fresh air and panoramic views. Ten guests can sleep in five cabins: there’s a full-beam main deck master, two full-beam VIP doubles and two twin cabins on the lower deck, all of which have marble ensuite bathrooms.

Frank Laupman of Omega Architects has created an interior design that has a distinctive personality based on a theme of Dutch expressionism. Contrasting woods, simple clean lines, marquetry and glass detailing create an atmosphere of calm, contemporary elegance.

The ride will be as graceful and luxurious as the interior; comfort and handling are further enhanced by Active Interceptor stabilizers and the very latest zero-speed Seakeeper gyro stabilizers.

M/Y Galatea will be tested in the North Sea and be delivered to her Owners at the end of March 2014.
