Attitude by name. Attitude by nature
The name chosen by the owner of the 6th hull in the OTAM 80HT series fully expresses the brand’s commitment to building high-performance yachts tailored to the individual preferences of its discerning clients. In fact, this latest project incorporates several firsts for OTAM among its many bespoke features developed by the Yard four hands with the long lasting partner Umberto Tagliavini and his valuable Team of Marine Design & Services.
New foredeck design
On specific request of the owner, the foredeck features a large sunbed and height-adjustable table to maximise the usability of this open-air space. The sunbed cushions can be raised to form a backrest, but both sunbed and accompanying table have been designed so as not to compromise the 80HT’s iconic profile when viewed from the side. The whole area can be shaded by a bimini supported on lightweight poles.
Bespoke cockpit layout
Another request of the owner is the horseshoe-shaped sofa seating in the aft cockpit. The layout means that access forward from the cockpit is by the port companionway only, but the seating area is dramatically increased in size with space to seat up to 10 guests around the table in convivial comfort, with another generous sunbed atop the transom.
The safety gates leading down to the swim platform are also designed to request of the owner with a removable top section to reduce their aesthetic impact, yet still provide a low but child-safe barrier.
Larger tender garage
The tender bay under the aft sunbed has been increased in size to house a 3.95m Williams sport jet tender. Remarkable for an 80-foot yacht, the tender is certified for a certified payload of 6 people to make transfers both more comfortable for guests and reduce the number of ship-to-shore operations. 3rd crew cabin
Last but not least, top service is a priority for the owner who requested an extra cabin for his chief stewardess/chef conveniently placed next to the galley. The Miele-equipped galley itself goes above and beyond standard specifications with a full-size dishwasher, a large fridge and freezer, and a washing-drier machine in a separate alcove.
In terms of the interior layout, the open-plan main salon and helm station is designed with conviviality in mind, with ample seating and wine cellars integrated into the chaise longue. Attitude’s guest accommodation comprises a full-beam master suite amidships, a twin guest cabin on the portside and a second master cabin forward. The ceiling height in the latter has been maintained at a generous at 2.10m – remarkable for a sports yacht of her size.
Built to perform with outstanding efficiency
The yacht is powered by twin MTU main engines (2600 hp each) coupled to Arneson drives for a top speed of 47 knots and a cruising speed of 40 knots. This exceptional performance and outstanding efficiency is in part thanks also to her patent-protected, 6-blade propellers developed by Rolla exclusively for OTAM.
Delivery to her owner in April 2020.
