Heesen's OMAHA (aka YN 18350) is a 50m displacement motor yacht designed by Clifford Denn (exterior) and Reymond Langton (interior)

The exterior design is a nice mix of aggressive lines forward and smooth lines at the aft. Heesen says that the design is inspired by the lines of classic cars and features some details:

“The grilles on the main deck aft fashion plates, for example, are only one of the many design details that lend ‘contemporary’ appeal.”

OMAHA accommodates ten guests in five suites. A master suite is on the main deck forward, four guest cabins are located on the lower deck. There are three double cabins and one twin cabin. A crew of ten people sleeps in five cabins.

The three-deck motor yacht has 250 m² of deck space. The sun deck has spacious 68 m² and an overall length of 16 meters.

OMAHA features a beach club with a bar, sauna and a sound system at the aft. The tender storage is on the foredeck.

Two MTU engines of the 8V4000 M63 with 1,000 kW each power her up to 16 knots. The cruising speed of 12 knots allows an operating range of 3,800 nautical miles. The fuel consumption is 390 L per hour at 15 knots and moderate 95 L per hour at 10 knots.
