The 65-metre Galactica Star superyacht owned by Kolawole Aluko, the Nigerian oil mogul has been sold.
Yachtharbour.com said the yacht was sold on 25 July. Fraser representing the seller and Burgess represented the buyer. The vessel was listed for sale earlier this year for $ 42,000,000, as a result of a notorious corruption case in Nigeria, involving Aluko, Prince Olajide Omokore and former oil minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke.
The yacht was custom-built by Dutch yard Heesen in 2013 and is seconds only to the builder’s 70-metre Galactica Super Nova in terms of LOA. She features exterior styling by Omega Architects, engineering by Van Oossanen & Associates, finished by interiors from the boards of Bannenberg & Rowell.
