Otam 85 GTS set for the big stage

Otam’s latest fast planing yacht, the 26 metre Otam 85GTS, has reached the halfway point in construction. The Italian yard revealed that the hull and deck had been assembled and MTU 16v M 94 engines installed. The yacht’s electrical and hydraulic systems are in progress while work is also well underway on the interior manufacturing. Manufacturing has also begun on the yacht’s custom hardtop. The yard revealed it had constructed a 1:1 mock-up of the structure and curved windscreen that will be used to create the mould.

Sales and communication manager Matteo Belardinelli explained: β€œThe aesthetics of the hardtop and windscreen are extremely important for the owner. So instead of relying on 3D modelling, we decided to build a mock-up out of wood to get the proportions exactly right.” Construction remains on track, the yard said, with the yacht’s delivery scheduled to take place in time for the 2019 summer season. The yacht will make her international debut at the 2019 boat shows.

The all-new project, which was sold in May this year, features interior and exterior design detailing by French architect Joseph Dirand. The yacht 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 futuristic, supercar-inspired profile of the Otam 85′ GTS has drawn much attention along with its promise of serious performance attributes.

The Otam 85GTS will have the performance to match its sporty styling, with a twin 2,600hp MTU 16V set-up for a top speed of 45 knots and cruising speed of 38. The new build Otam 85′ GTS features a number 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.
