OTAM with more than 60 years of powerboating experience – is proud to present its new OTAM 85 GTS, the result of the Italian yard’s research after the success of its iconic OTAM 80 HT.
AN EXCELLENT TEAMWORK ACHIEVEMENT
The project was developed with long-standing partner Umberto Tagliavini’s Marine Design and in collaboration with Niccolò Pasquini and Alessio Riccobaldi from R+P Architecture studio, the latter already working on further OTAM CUSTOM RANGE models. For the first time, the owner of an OTAM may choose between several configurations for the bow area, including the possibility of a lounge and coffee table or a spacious sunbathing area.
A GULLWING FEATURE INSPIRED BY SUPERCARS
The result is a flexible Open that offers the maximum in comfort both while underway and at anchor.
The special supercar inspired gullwing hardtop, with a structure based on a central spine, while underway with the wings lowered give a sense of complete protection with very little turbulence, and when at anchor all you have to do is raise the two wings to feel in close contact with surrounding nature.
This sensation is amplified by the open transom that allows for easy and safe access to the water and by the bow area that provides another place to use as either a dining or sunbathing zone, always with the maximum level of comfort and privacy. Confirming the intention of OTAM not to limit either the aesthetic or technical customization possibilities, the yard lets the owner choose all the details and customize in pure OTAM DNA every part of the boat, from the interior layout to every single particular.
TYPICAL OTAM PERFORMING STYLE
Comfort is linked to the sportive character inherent in OTAM’s DNA with the two propulsion options: twin 2,600hp MTU 16V engines for a top speed of 45 knots and a 35 knot cruising speed, or twin 1,925hp CAT C32 engines for a top speed of 38 knots and a cruising speed of 32 knots. Both options foresee Arneson transmissions.
