– With its two 2000 hp engines, the new OTAM 65 HT reaches a maximum speed of 60 knots and a cruising speed of 50 knots
– Custom-made interiors and details, designed by Francesco Guida
Design, are inspired by the world of private jets
– There are no boundaries between interiors and exteriors in the customised hardtop
– Carbon inserts are part of the hardtop and deck rigging
A new OTAM 65 HT has been sold and is already under construction. The exteriors are designed by the Italian shipyard and the style, the layout detailing and the interiors are the work of Francesco Guida Design, as requested by the customer. The extreme customisation typical of the Italian shipyard is expressed to the fullest in the new OTAM 65 HT, which can be perfectly described as a “Made in Italy one off”. This yacht embodies the concepts of experience, research, development, flexibility, iconic design and top performance combined with outstanding efficiency.
Unmatched performance and efficiency are the distinguishing traits of the deep-V hull with a deadrise angle greater than 21°. Pure OTAM style with sporty and iconic aesthetics is born from the collaboration with the shipyard’s historical partner Umberto Tagliavini – Marine Design and Services. These features, combined with the owner’s decision to install two 2000 hp MAN engines, allow the OTAM 65 HT to reach a top speed of 60 knots and a cruising speed of 50 knots!
External design to enjoy the sea
The hardtop of the OTAM 65 HT has been customised with new details according to the owner’s requests. One of most remarkable is the absence of doors leading to the cockpit, which creates a large, open-space area (to better enjoy outdoor life) without affecting any of the yacht’s comforts – for example, the entire area has air conditioning.
Carbon inserts have been added to the deck rigging
Carbon fibre inserts are not just in the hardtop; they can be found in the deck rigging as well (from the anchor to the transom platform), according to the shipyard’s tradition to use technologically advanced materials. Other than creating a chromatic contrast with the white hull, carbon fibre reduces weight, considerably enhancing performance.
Interiors by Francesco Guida Design, inspired by the world of private jets
The interiors of the new OTAM 65 HT, conceived by Francesco Guida Design, are fully customised. The elegant geometries that express the cuttingedge style give the vessel a timeless character and, at the same time, mark a new benchmark for interior design in the sport yachting market.
“The world of private jets had a deep influence on us while we were designing the interiors of the new OTAM 65 HT,” explains Francesco Guida. “The contamination occurred naturally and immediately, because the extreme performance and shape of the vessel bring to mind a fast vector that very rapidly moves from one position to another, reaching distant, hidden locations.”
Colours, shapes and materials have been carefully selected to harmoniously coexist, giving the yacht a balanced appearance. “Carbon is deliberately in plain view and enhances the yacht’s lightness and the use of technological materials, which can even be found in the cabin ceilings, where they are shaped to remind the observer of the central sections of the fairing over the cockpit. The streaks of luminous surfaces evoke the trails left by rapidly moving bodies.”
Onboard the new OTAM 65 HT, black carbon mixes with the white of fine leather and high quality oak wood, creating a strong contrast and highlighting the sinuous shapes of the panels and furniture.
OTAM 65 SPECS: Length overall 20.30 m; Waterline length 18.32 m; Beam max 4.68 m; Max speed 60 kn; Cruising speed 50 kn.
ABOUT OTAM – “Made in Italy one off”
OTAM is the acronym of Organizzazione Tigullio Assistenza Motoscafi, which was established in 1954 as one of the first shipyards in the region of Liguria. “Made in Italy one off” is the expression that encompasses all the Brand’s values, such as specialisation, research, flexibility, iconic design, top performance and outstanding efficiency. The efficiency of Otam products, combined with the quality that the shipyard is the symbol of, are reflected and revealed by the owners themselves in direct interviews published on the wwww.otam.it web site, in which the owners state they are proud supporters of the Brand. In Otam, a 100% Italian shipyard, state-of-the-art technology and mechanical engineering become the emblem of the deeply-rooted specialisation of Italian powerboating quality all over the world.
The Otam range is currently divided into FAST&ICONIC and CUSTOM RANGE. “Fast and Iconic” includes the 45’, 58 Open or HT, 65 HT and the 80HT yachts, together with the youngest members of the Otam family, the 85 GTS and 100’ yachts. The production of full-custom aluminium superyachts between 24 and 42 mt in length began in 2014. OTAM CUSTOM RANGE works closely with customers to translate their vision into a full-custom “One Off” yacht, which is very different from creating mass-produced products.
Otam is based in Genoa and spreads over a 17,000 square-metre site, which includes direct access to the sea, a dock with 35 berths and a 180-ton travel lift. There are about 40 workers in the shipyard. The Otam process is entirely in-house, completed by craftsmen and professionals who have been involved with the shipyard for many years. The legendary “Pontile Otam” dock in Santa Margherita Ligure has room for over 70 yachts and offers complete service assistance.
Otam Co-Design Lab – “Design and build your ‘personal vision’ translated by the designer of your choice”. The shipyard is a laboratory in which customers or designers can bring, develop and build their projects. Otam Co-Design Lab currently enjoys the collaboration of some of the most important Italian and international design firms, including Tommaso Spadolini, Umberto Tagliavini, Hot Lab, Achille Salvagni, Paolo Martin, Cristiano Gatto, Francesco Guida Design and BG Design Firm. The Paris-based JDA Architecture firm has recently joined as well.
