New 50 metre Steel Class
YN 18350, christened Omaha, has been delivered to her owners following intensive sea trials in the North Sea in favourable weather conditions, with seas ranging from calm to moderate. Omaha exceeded the contractual speed, reaching 16 knots, and proved to be extremely manoeuvrable in all conditions thanks to her large rudders in combination with the power steering unit. Powered by two MTU 8V4000 M63 engines, she has a range of 3,800 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots. Her round bilge steel hull with bulbous bow provides great comfort for the guests, exceptional sea keeping and unparalleled performance. YN 18350 is the first in Heesen’s newly designed 50 metre Steel Class, whose exterior lines are by Clifford Denn.
