New Otam 85 GTS delivered and on the route to 2019 Cannes Yachting Festival

by Alice Paniccia 10 Jul 23:55 PDT

OTAM is pleased to announce that OTAM 85 GTS full custom version has been delivered to its Owner. Its official debut will be at the upcoming Cannes Yachting Festival (10-15 September 2019).

"The 85 GTS is the natural evolution of Otam's 'one off' philosophy, which aims at offering the greatest flexibility and no restrictions to Owners who are looking for exclusive solutions that meet their personal style and needs, and who therefore are looking for 'true Custom'".

"The genesis of the 85 GTS goes back to the 2017 edition of the Cannes Yachting Festival," explains Matteo Belardinelli, Sales & Communication Manager for OTAM. "We were presenting the OTAM 80, which raised a lot of interest because of its performance, efficiency and its second, full-beam master suite in the centre of the yacht. A number of clients expressed their interest in a 'different and open or semi-open' version of that yacht, which was therefore the starting point for our R&D."

The design and engineering of this one-off fast cruiser, powered by a pair of 2600 hp MTU engines and Arneson transmission that can reach and exceed 45+ knots maximum speed and 35+ knot cruising speed, is the result of the collaborative efforts of OTAM CEO Gianfranco Zanoni, who is also Production director and tester as mechanical engineer and off-shore world champion, and Umberto Tagliavini, from Marine Design & Services.

Six blades OTAM propellers copyright project developed four hands with Rolla ensure a true outstanding efficiency equal to 16 litres per nautical mile at a cruising speed of 37 knots and zero vibrations, a perfect maneuverabilty in full comfort at different speed up to 50 knots.

Only 43 db is the noise level in the Owner cabin with one generator operating, the contractual limit of 45 db has been exceeded.

The Paris-based Joseph Dirand Architecture firm, dealt with all the details of the interior layout and design together with the exterior cockpit layout and style in full cooperation with Otam according to the wishes of the Customer. Max Riedl, from the German company Cornelsen & Partner, was the Technical Surveyor representing the Owner, with Damien Sauvage from Sauvagepowerboats acting as commissioning supervisor.

The external layout offers huge convivial and relaxation areas, translating the needs and requests of the Customer who wanted to customise and build "His Own Unit" as an Open Day Boat. This 85 semi-open GTS is therefore able to cruise safely and without turbulence, ensuring the greatest comfort aboard even at top speed of 50 knots.

The shape of the semi-open hard top is made with advanced composite materials that have been specifically modelled according to the Customer's specific style. It integrates the engines' air inlets, protects the areas served by grills for outdoor lunches and dinners and perfectly conceals the mechanism for opening the top, which is also fully customised.

With the two large master-suites in the bow and at the centre of the yacht with max beam, in addition to the galley open space lounge with another day bathroom for the guests, the spaciousness of this yacht's internal layout can be immediately perceived. The crew's quarters in the bow can be accessed independently from the VIP and Guest areas for best service and full privacy ensuring the best quality of life on board 24h to the Owner and his Guests.
