New Model: Heesen 50m YN18350

In mid July Heesen launched YN 18350, a 50 meter super yacht build of steel and christened Omaha, delivered to her owners following intensive sea trials in the North Sea in favourable weather conditions, with seas ranging from calm to moderate.  Heesen YN 18350 exceeded the contractual speed, reaching 16 knots one knot more then calculated and proved to be extremely maneuverable in all conditions thanks to her large rudders in combination with the power steering unit. Powered by two MTU 1340hp 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. Heesen 50m YN 18350 will leave the Netherlands for her maiden voyage to the Mediterranean Sea where she will meet her owners.  This 50-metre Heesen steel yacht started on speculation under the project name ‘Maia’.  YN 18350 is the first in Heesen’s newly designed 50 metre Steel Class, whose exterior lines are by Clifford Denn and is a replacement to the 47 meter platform which was delivered in thirteen hulls. With a gross tonnage below the 500GT threshold, this 50m modern displacement yacht is the successor of the 47m Steel Class. Clifford Denn spliced the Heesen DNA with lines inspired by classic car design to create a true blue-water yacht with a bold presence on the water. UK based design studio Reymond Langton created a luxurious but welcoming interior with accommodation for ten guests in five cabins, with the Owner’s stateroom located on the main deck forward and four large guest suites on the lower deck.  A sister ship, YN 18850 Project Triton, is currently under construction at the Heesen shipyard in Oss and is available for delivery in February 2020.
