Frank Laupman On The 65m Superyacht Galactica Star
With Galactica Star having completed her sea trials before making a grand impression at the 2013 Monaco Yacht Show, we spoke to designer Frank Laupman of Omega Architects to get a deeper insight into the resounding achievement Galactica Star represents.
“She’s here at the right spot, she’s in a corner position so you can experience the exterior as well as going on and experiencing the interior so we’re very happy,” explains Frank. “It has a certain scale mistake so it really looks like a 55 maybe, so a compact design but it’s really 65 and that’ really what we want to do, we want to keep Heesen in that niche of sport yachts.”
Galactica Star is the first all-aluminium fast displacement motor yacht launched by Heesen Yachts and a truly outstanding vessel with a sophisticated exterior design.
