 Omahais the first in Heesen’s newly designed 50-metre Steel Class with exterior lines by Clifford Denn. With a gross tonnage below the 500GT threshold, it is powered by two MTU 8V4000 M63 engines, which allow the yacht to reach a speed of 16 knots. The boat has a range of 3,800 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots. The steel hull has a bulbous bow.

For the design, Clifford Denn decided to combine the Heesen DNA with lines inspired by classic car design. The interiors are by Reymond Langton who created a luxurious and welcoming environment with accommodation for ten guests in five cabins. The master suite is located on the main deck. Omaha’s sister ship, Project Triton, is currently under construction at the Heesen shipyard in Oss.
