50-metre Heesen's Project Maia launched and named Omaha
49.4-metre Project Maia has been launched by the Dutch yard Heesen and has been christened Omaha. She was built on speculation and sold in December 2017 by Heesen USA and Ocean Independence. Heesen unveiled this project in March, 2017, according to YachtHarbour.
The yacht, built from steel and aluminium, boasts exterior design by Clifford Denn and interior of 499 GT by Reymond Langton Design. The previous collaboration of the two design studios is Ann G, and Omaha is a little bit similar to her. Some exterior details on the yacht such as the flowing lines or navigation lights were inspired by classic cars design.

Interior decor of light bleached oak and stained walnut includes inboard mirrors which are reflecting the light flooding in through the windows. Superyacht beach club with bar and sauna in the transom is quite spacious, as the tenders are moved to the bow. The 68 square metre sundeck has been fitted with a superyacht spa pool and a cocktail bar.
