Benetti’s 56m Galaxy back on the market
After being sold by Burgess in 2013, the highly sought-after 56m Galaxy is now for sale again with the firm for an asking price of $26.9 million.
Galaxy was built with a steel, full displacement hull and an aluminium superstructure by Benetti, and launched in 2005 at the Italian shipyard’s facility in Livorno. If one analyses the global fleet of delivered motoryachts between 53.5-58.5m (2.5m either side of Galaxy’s 56m), the average gross tonnage is 782.5gt, so Galaxy’s 893gt offers a capacious interior.
Since her sale in 2013, she has been offered for charter – with a deservedly strong reputation on the market – exclusively through Burgess. The interior, designed by Zuretti Interior Design, was put together with charter in mind and is testament to her track record on the market – it is highly versatile and thoughtfully proportioned for private cruising or family/group charters.
Her sky lounge features 180 degree views, a home cinema, games tables and a bar. The interior accommodates 14 guests in six staterooms over three decks, featuring a high volume, full-beam owner’s suite on the main deck that is split over two levels with a private office, his and hers bathrooms and dressing areas, and a raised panoramic salon forward.
The en-suite VIP stateroom is on the upper deck and features a separate dressing area, whilst a further two double staterooms, and two twin staterooms – both with Pullman berths – make up the accommodation on the lower deck.
The expansive sun deck has a Jacuzzi forward, a climate-controlled gym mid-ships, and a dining table with sun loungers aft. The on board elevator accesses all guest levels, including the sun deck.
