First pictures: Golden Yachts' 85m flagship O’Ptasia launched
by Chris Jefferies
Her accommodation is comprised of 11 staterooms, including an upper-deck owner’s suite that measures 95 square metres and comes with a private study, walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom. Two double cabins and a twin complete the layout on this level, while two doubles, two convertible cabins, two twins and a VIP suite on the main deck further add to the extensive hosting options.
A grand total of 18 crew cabins ensure that every whim can be catered to, including a bridge-deck captain’s cabin. The central superyacht elevator provides quick access between all four decks, while the foredeck helipad allows guests to arrive in style.
On-board entertainment options are plentiful, with a 16-person dining table in the main deck saloon and a bridge deck gymnasium. Another star feature is her spacious superyacht beach club, complete with steam room and massage area.
Power comes from a pair of 3,386hp Caterpillar 3516C engines for a top speed of 16 knots, while the built-in stabiliser system should ensure a smooth cruising experience, both underway and at anchor. Guests looking to take to the water should head to O’Ptasia’s central tender garage, which houses three Seadoos, a six metre Novurania catamaran, a 4.4 metre Avon RIB and an eight metre Chris Craft tender as well as a plethora of water toys.
Upon delivery, O’Ptasia will become the flagship of the Golden Yachts fleet, as well as one of the top 200 largest superyachts in the world. Other projects currently under development at Golden Yachts include the 57 metre O’Mathilde, which is also due for delivery in time for the summer season.
