Otam releases first renderings of 85GTS motor yacht project

Italian yard Otam has revealed the renderings of its latest fast planing yacht, a 26 metre Otam 85GTS. The all-new project, which was sold in May this year, is set for a June 2019 delivery. Construction of the yacht is well underway, with the GRP hull and deck of the Otam 85GTS complete. Fitting out of the yacht is also due to start shortly.

French architect Joseph Dirand is collaborating with Otam on the custom-made interior and exterior detailing of the yacht. It will feature ample al fresco lounging space fore and aft and include an open transom leading down to a swim platform. A semi-open fly deck will also provide seating and dining facilities.

The owner was drawn to the futuristic, supercar-inspired profile of the Otam 85GTS and has requested that the Italian shipyard create a classic, open version designed to suit his personal style.

The Otam 85GTS will have the performance to match its sporty styling, with a choice of either twin 1,925hp Caterpillar C32 engines or a twin 2,600hp MTU 16V set-up — the latter translates into speeds of up to 45 knots and comfortable cruising at 35 knots when twinned with Arneson surface drives.

The new build Otam 85GTS is chock full of design solutions and customisations that set it apart from others in the Otam fleet. The aesthetics are unique, but certain elements have been preserved to maintain the Otam DNA.

Sales and communication manger for Otam Matteo Belardinelli said, “The experienced owner comes from series production boats and was looking for a yacht that could be tailored to his individual needs and sense of style."

Other options on the Otam 85GTS include a choice of foredeck layouts — owners can opt for either a spacious sunbathing area or a lounge and coffee table. Back aft, the emphasis is firmly on relaxation and socialising, with a wide open stern providing easy access to the water and plenty of spots for soaking up the sun.

Accommodation on board the Otam 85GTS is for up to six guests split between three cabins, while the crew quarters is suitable for a staff of two people.
