The first unit in the Otam 90 GTS version is progressing, with the shipyard in Genoa now in preparation for its May launch. The flagship yacht will make its international debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2024 in September. It’s a year that has special significance for Otam, as the Italian shipyard celebrates its 70th anniversary.

Offering comfort, space and style in a luxury yacht under 24 metres, the powerful twin MTU engines of 2,600 hp have each been installed and can power the yacht at speeds of 40-plus knots, in combination with the Arneson drives.

The collaboration between the shipyard and Giuseppe Bagnardi of BG Design Firm means the Otam 90 GTS is rich in custom design details. The helm console, for example, is inspired by the world of racing cars with a carbon-fibre structure that resembles the protective halo system used by Formula 1 and other race cars.

The same structure also features an integrated and independent cooling system to keep the console electronics at a constant temperature. The air intakes on the front of the yacht and snorkel on the hardtop are inspired by the hood and roof scoops on high-performance luxury cars.


The hull has recently been coated in a silver metallic paint with bronze accents that was specially developed by Awlgrip for the owner, who is adding the Otam 90 GTS to his existing fleet of yachts.

Outfitting of the interior is proceeding alongside the technical works. The custom layout can accommodate the guests in its three ensuite cabins. Below deck there is the full-beam owner’s cabin, a VIP cabin and a third guest cabin as well as a lounge.

On the main deck, in addition to the cockpit with an opening hard top, there is access to the kitchen separated from the VIP area, a sunbathing area aft and a bathing platform. Forward, a dinette is always accessible thanks to side walkways.

The Otam 90 GTS can be customised with either full or half-height side windows, single or double hull windows for the master suite, and a larger or smaller garage, in this case capable of accommodating a 4.35-metre tender. The Italian shipyard’s new flagship is also available in the hardtop version, with a closed salon on the main deck.

“As with all our yachts, every detail of the Otam 90 GTS – technical and aesthetic – has been developed with and for the owner, so that their personality would be reflected in every detail in the project,” says Matteo Belardinelli, Otam’s Sales and Communication Manager.

“Nothing is left to chance – we firmly believe our handcrafted approach is the ultimate expression of exclusivity and luxury.”

Our mission is to allow our customers to be able to express themselves and enjoy the construction and design process in order to create something truly unique and never similar to others.”
