Italian yard Otam has revealed new details and imagery of its recently launched 22.3 metre Otam 70HT model named Darth Vader, which has been debuted at the Cannes Yachting Festival.
Described as “seriously sleek”, the Otam 70 HT has been designed by BG Design Firm while engineering has been penned by Umberto Tagliavini.
New images show a modern, monochromatic interior with marbled and metallic finishes. The owner is clearly a Star Wars fan, as the interior of Darth Vader has also been decorated with a number of Darth Vader artworks and details.
Highly influenced by luxury automotive and aeronautical design, the model is described as "the epitome of dynamic performance and timeless style”, by the builder.
The automotive design inspiration is evident in the scooped air intakes in the hull, each side of the foredeck sunbed, in front of the windscreen and under the radar arch. All work together to channel air into the engine room.
Speaking about the design, BG Design Firm said: “The design is strongly inspired by the aeronautical world and luxury sports cars. It was essential to design the new 22.3 metre by taking into account the proportions and lines that have always distinguished Otam yachts.”
Otam sales and communication manager Matteo Belardinelli added: “We wanted to take the detailing to a new level on the new 70HT model. Meticulous attention to detail has always been a hallmark of the brand and BG Design Firm interpreted our brief perfectly.”
Customisation of the yacht is key, the builder said; the owner of the first hull has chosen to include a cockpit and saloon with sofa seating along the port side for entertaining large groups.
Elsewhere, the yacht includes a sunbed on top of the transom tender garage and a sun bed at the bow. Other options are available, the builder said, adding that the second in the series will likely have “a more classic” layout.
The first hull also features a three-cabin layout, including a full 5.4 metre beam owner’s suite forward with a separate crew cabin at the bow.
Power comes from a pair of 2000hp MTU engines for an impressive top speed of 50 knots and the yacht is also equipped with gyro stabilisers.
