Fourth Otam Millennium 80 HT yacht launched and named Mystere
by Chris Jefferies
This 25.5 metre fast planing yacht was sold in June 2016 and built from a GRP hull and superstructure to CE Category B standards. Her sleek exterior was created by Umberto Tagliavini with a maximum beam of 6.05 metres.
Accommodation is for six guests split across a master suite and two double cabins, while the crew quarters allow for two staff members, but the real headline is her performance.
The deep-V hull has been fitted with twin 2,600hp MTU 16V2000 M94 diesel engines twinned to Arneson surface drives. All of this translates into thrilling performance — Mystere hit a top speed of 48 knots on her sea trials and can cruise comfortably at 41 knots.
Previous hulls have featured a quadruple propulsion system, but by eschewing this option, the owner of Mystere has freed up more space for a larger owner’s cabin.
The interior décor features strong chromatic contrasts, with lacquered ebony, chrome steel inserts, natural teak and carpeting in silk and cashmere.
Particular attention was paid to sound-proofing and insulation, and this results in a noise level of just 44db in the owner’s cabin when the generator is running and the air conditioning is set at 80% load.
In addition to the Otam Millennium 80HT series, the Italian yard recently branched out into semi-displacement yachts with the launch of the 35.2 metre Gipsy, which hit the water last summer.
