OTAM presented its new Otam 85 GTS, the result of the Italian yard’s research after the success of its iconic OTAM 80 HT.
The project was developed with long-standing partner Umberto Tagliavini’s Marine Design and in collaboration with Niccolò Pasquini and Alessio Riccobaldi from R+P Architecture studio, the latter already working on further Otam Custom Range models. For the first time, the owner can choose between several configurations for the bow area, including the possibility of a lounge and coffee table or a spacious sunbathing area. The result is a flexible Open that offers comfort both while underway and at anchor.
The special supercar inspired gullwing hardtop has a structure based on a central spine. While underway, with the wings lowered, the yacht has protection from the elements with very little turbulence, and when at anchor all that needs to be done is raise the two wings to feel in close contact with surrounding nature.
This sensation is amplified by the open transom that allows for easy and safe access to the water and by the bow area. It provides another place to use as either a dining or sunbathing zone, offering comfort and privacy.
Confirming the intention of Otam not to limit either the aesthetic or technical customisation possibilities, the yard lets the owner choose all the details and customise every part of the boat, from the interior layout to every single particular.
The Otam 85 GTS two propulsion options: twin 2,600hp MTU 16V engines for a top speed of 45 knots and a 35 knot cruising speed, or twin 1,925hp CAT C32 engines for a top speed of 38 knots and a cruising speed of 32 knots. Both options foresee Arneson transmissions.
