Galatea is a 35.05m (114’11″ft) Cutter sail yacht built by Heli Yachts and launched in 1998. This luxury vessel’s sophisticated exterior design and engineering are the work of USCS d.o.o.. The yacht’s interior has been designed by Nesactium Design Studio. She was last refitted in 2011.
Sailing yacht Galatea has “Hundested” variable-pitch propeller, driven by a single 441 kW MAN diesel, intended to reduce hydrodynamic drag, whilst “Lewmar” bow and stern thrusters ensure superior maneuverability and dependability of operation. “Nirvana” aluminum spars carry 483 m2 of on the wind sail area. This can be nearly doubled by the use of a “Genaker” flown from the bow. The main sail is sheeted to a captive reel winch, made “Lewmar” and concealed in a locker.
The “Genaker” or the staysail are sheeted to a pair of hydraulic “Lewmar” drum winches, mounted in front of the steering position. The mainmast backstay runners are also directed to“Lewmar” drum winches. “Navtec” hydraulic cylinders are used for the main aft stays, main and mizzen boom kicker as well as main outhaul.
There are two helm positions one outside in the aft cockpit by means of a wooden wheel and one in the pilothouse by joystick.
Navigation, engine control and alarm indicators fill the instrument panel forward of the steering wheel at both helms. Controls for the sails are from outside helm’s position, where is the best view of the rig and sails.
On the mid part, a highly practical and comfortable cockpit, featuring a dining table with built in wine cooler, surrounded with cushioned seating area.
Throughout the yacht is designed by the classic mahogany – white panels woodwork, a combination that has created solemn, antique atmosphere, crafted to very high quality by the yard’s joiners.
