- This classically elegant vessel is instantly recognisable from its striking lines and dark blue hull. Built in 2011 by the illustrious Picchiotti shipyard, her state of the art aluminium superstructure and steel hull, combined with fully functional ice classed capabilities, long range and ultra-modern stabilisation system, have led to her becoming something of a global wanderer, circumnavigating the earth twice.
- She can accommodate 10 guests in 5 cabins, comprising 1 owner’s suite, 2 double suites and 2 twin suite, along with a further 10 crew.Tenders include a custom 9.5m Zodiac Hurricane expedition RIB and she is a well-equipped diving platform, but for a real Cookson Adventures experience, we recommend twinning Galileo G with a fully-kitted out support vessel.
While her sailing yacht profile may not suggest it, Galileo G was designed from the outset as a yacht for real exploration, roaming the globe anywhere from the Northwest Passage to Papua New Guinea’s lagoons, and once crossed from Auckland to Panama without refuelling.
Galileo G is specced with an Ice Class steel hull with extra-thick plating, a massive satellite dome for navigating beyond 70° latitudes, iceberg radar, rudders with ice knives, thrusters for manoeuvrability, super-tough propellers and heated deck gear.
A major passion of the original owner, Galileo G caters for serious diving and is even equipped with sonar for wreck hunting.
