28m Otam 90 GTS flagship prepares for launch

18 March 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Construction on the 27.8-metre flagship Otam 90 GTS model is nearing completion, on track for its scheduled launch in May. 

The yacht's hull and superstructure were assembled in June 2023 at the Otam shipyard in Genoa, Italy, and the engines, generators and Arneson drives are ready for installation. The soon-to-be flagship of the yard’s Fast & Iconic series has a “big-boat mentality”, with a compact footprint and loadline measuring under 24 metres. 

The hull is made entirely with Aramat, a multi-layer composite fabric combining glass fibre and Kevlar for optimal stiffness, while the hard top is made with carbon fibre. With its lightweight composition and twin MTU engines, the Otam 90 GTS will be able to reach speeds in excess of 40 knots. Recent construction updates include the painting of the hull in silver metallic paint with bronze accents, developed by Awlgrip for the owner, who is adding the yacht to his current fleet.

The Otam 90 GTS series will be fully customisable at the engineering level, with options that include a hard top or soft top, full or half-height side windows, with or without a side passage door and a single or double hull window for the master suite. The flagship will be the semi-open version devised to accommodate a large number of guests onboard.

Exterior styling is owed to Giuseppe Bagnardi of BG Design Firm, who collaborated closely with Otam on the design. This has resulted in a build “rich in custom design details”, including a helm console inspired by the world of F1 racing cars.

Accommodation is comprised of a full-beam master suite, a VIP cabin and a guest cabin. There will also be a lounge, daybed and an office space below deck, while the main deck features a convivial cockpit with opening hard top, as well as a large sunbathing area aft and bathing platform. Further space for dining and relaxing can be found forward of this. 

“This project is generating a lot of interest because of her performance, the flexibility our custom approach offers and the fact that the yacht comes under the simpler regulations for vessels under 24 metres,” said Matteo Belardinelli, Otam’s sales and communications manager. “The Otam 90 GTS is yet another example of our mission to build extraordinary, high-performance yachts that are tailored to each owner’s personal requirements. We firmly believe that this bespoke approach is the highest expression of luxury.”

The Otam 90 GTS will make her world debut at the 2024 Cannes Yachting Festival. According to BOATPro, the Otam 80HT is currently also under construction, which will be delivered in time for the 2025 Mediterranean season.
