Galileo - aegean megaclassics

In summer, 2007 a grand celebration took place at Bodrum Marina, TURKEY, as Aegean Yacht unveiled its new vessel GALILEO, the 50 meter classic three-masted schooner. This superyacht has become the 40th yacht launched at the Aegean Yacht boatyard and the biggest of her type in the history of Turkish boatbuilding.

The concept of the vessel belongs to the Aegean Yacht’s owner Sinan Ozer. With more than 30 years experience in yachting Mr. Ozer and his company has become well-known for the stylish custom build yachts delivered to a distinguished international clientele, including Turkish businessmen, Arabic sheikhs and Russian oligarchs. 

Aegean Yacht is based in the refined Mediterranean resort of Bodrum, the ancient Halicarnassus, where boats are built for centures. The company had started with hand-made traditional wooden “gulets”, motorsailers with a round aft. Now it is a full service boatyard that produces also classic sailing and modern motor yachts with LOA’s up to 60 m, mainly from steel.

Since its establishment in 1976, Aegean Yacht has grown to become one of Turkey’s leading shipyards, while GALILEO had written a new page in the two-thousand year history of Bodrum boat building.

The 50 m steel-hulled GALILEO is a total “in-house” design with over 500 sq. m of luxurious interior and 400 sq. m exterior living space. The exterior of GALILEO is designed by veteran naval architect Yavuz Mete and Tansel Taskiran, and the interior design is done by Osman Aslandere.

The designers of Aegean Yacht were able to recreate the classic elegance of the schooners of the ‘30s of the last century with modern flare and technology. 

The decks are Burmese teak. There is a wet-feet bar, 42’ plasma screen TV and al fresco dining on the aft deck. The sunbathing upper deck will certainly prove to be a favorite spot for open-air living. An open-air Jacuzzi is the ideal spot to watch the sunsets. On the fore deck there is plenty of space for any favorite “water toy”.

The 3 masts carry a sail area of 1.100 m2. GALILEO will have the ability to make fast passages both under sail or power with the help of twin MAN 760 HP engines. Three generators – twin KOHLER 55 kW and one emergency KOHLER 23 kW – make sure that the yacht always has plenty of power.

The yacht’s stunning interior design can be best described as classic contemporary with the use of African Cherry (Makor?) throughout. Inside the 80 sq.m deck saloon you move around in a spacious luxurious environment with a carpet flooring. Here there is another large dining table for 12 persons and two separate sitting areas. Sofas offer maximum comfort. A wide 60’ plasma TV can be watched from any corner.

GALILEO has only 5 cabins. Two of them are main suits with an amazing living space: the total area is 60 sq.m for each of them. One of the main suits is aft and full-beam, with a corner office and a make-up table, sitting area and large center bed. The retractable plasma TV is right in front of the bed. The cabin’s decore is very intimate with lot of mirrors. Also here is an immense full marble en suite with a jacuzzi and a walk-in dressing room.

Another equal full-beam master cabin is located in the bow. At the same section there are two VIP staterooms and one triple guest cabin. One more cabin had been converted into a scuba storage area and diving compartment fully equipped with scuba compressors, diving gears and hydraulic diving platform.

More than 150 craftsmen and engineers had been working to create GALILEO. The yacht has been designed and built to the classification standards of RINA (Registro Italiano Navale) and the construction work carried out under their supervision. The result is an absolute world-class yacht, distinctive for her maximum comfort, advanced technology and personal freedom of choice in lay-out and furnishings. Classic, elegant, attractive and strong.
