Experience, craftsmanship and innovation
Rick van de Wetering is Director of Operations at Heesen Yachts and brings to the job over 25 years of industry experience. In fact, he began his career with the Oss-based brand, fulfilling a number of managerial roles before working with other international shipyards. 

“I am excited about my return to Heesen Yachts,” says Rick. “We operate in one of the most incredible markets where no client is ever the same. That means we have to bring all our experience, craftsmanship and innovation to the table if we are to meet – and hopefully exceed – their highest expectations.”

Rick points to the rich heritage of Heesen Yachts that helps him to achieve this goal. The shipyard was a pioneer in the use of light aluminium alloy for building large yachts and the first to introduce revolutionary technical features such as the Fast Displacement Hull Form and Hull Vane. These and other innovations have resulted in ground-breaking projects that are simply beyond belief.

“We excel at building bespoke yachts between 30m and 80m that are absolutely personal to each client,” concludes Rick. “But another important part of my job is also to ensure that they thoroughly enjoy the process from concept to completion.”

    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. Omaha will soon leave The Netherlands for her maiden voyage to the Mediterranean Sea where she will meet her owners.

    This 50-metre steel yacht started on speculation under the project name ‘Maia’ and was sold by Chris Collins of Ocean Independence, who represented the commercial interests of the owners during the construction, along with the owners’ representative Wayne Foulis.

    YN 18350 is the first in Heesen’s newly designed 50 metre Steel Class, whose exterior lines are by Clifford Denn. 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.

    Omaha’s sister ship, YN 18850 Project Triton, is currently under construction at the Heesen shipyard in Oss and is available for delivery in February 2020.
