Following a full interior refurbishment before last season, the 56-metre Galaxy, a 2005 Benetti superyacht, has been having a very successful charter year, with back-to-back bookings from the Cannes Film Festival onwards. She is charting in the Caribbean currently and will be available in the Western Mediterranean this summer from €238,000pw through Burgess.

Designers Stirling & Co have reconfigured the interior with a more contemporary edge. One upgrade the owner has made is to utilise his collection of 20th Century art – there are several Basquiat sketches and a Warhol on board. A favourite area for the yacht’s 12 guests is the upper salon, where they enjoy a film on the 80in screen from the deep leather sofas. Key systems have also been upgraded throughout the yacht.
