Measuring 65 meters in length, mega yacht Galactica Star is Heesen Yachts’ new flagship, representing the first full application of the patented Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF), developed by Van Oossanen.

The FDHF is a development aimed at providing superior performance over the entire speed range compared to traditional hull forms. The fact that superyacht Galactica Star exceeded her contractual speed by 2 knots, in much less than ideal conditions (shallow water, Beaufort 4 to 6), presented a very smooth ride and a very maneouvrable yacht, made Van Oossanen’s innovation become reality. Motor Yacht Galactica Star is the ultimate proof of the high performance of the Fast Displacement Hull Form.

With currently 6 FDHF yachts under construction, between lengths of 16 and 60 meters, it is evident that the market recognizes the full potential of the FDHF.
