Galileo

Palmer Johnson 1989

Palmer Johnson built Galileo to be an impressive world-cruiser. At the time of her launch, she was the largest aluminum sailing yacht built in the United States since the 1930s.

Sparkman & Stephens knew, given the owner’s brief, that Galileo would see serious use and at some point require refitting. That’s why S&S designed a “soft patch” into Galileo’s house top and main salon sole.

The patch was a section of aluminum that could be removed without interfering with any wiring or piping. The design element came in handy during a major refit of Galileo in 2006, when a new generator was loaded aboard through the patch.
