“The philosophy behind the OTAM Aluminium Custom Range is that it is fully bespoke and aimed at clients who don’t just want a boat – they want to build their ideal project,” says OTAM Sales Director Matteo Belardinelli. “Over 30 meters we build in aluminium rather than advanced composites because it provides more much more flexibility to personalize the yacht in every way, from the exterior aesthetics and interior layout to the propulsion specifications.”
The exterior lines by BG Design Firm, the same studio behind the new OTAM 70 HT, are inspired by the aeronautical and automotive worlds to reflect the brand’s racy DNA. Design details include the chromed ventilation vents in the transom and the air inlet on top of the hardtop.
The deep-V hull has been developed by Umberto Tagliavini Marine Design to provide excellent seakeeping, comfortable entry into waves and high speeds. Extensive Finite Element Analysis (FEM) ensures a rigid hull that is not prone to flexing or twisting, while Computional Fluid Dynamics (CFD) serve to optimize performance and handling at sea.
Clients can choose between a 3-engine configuration with MTU 2600-hp engines and a KaMeWa waterjet central booster for a top speed of 44 knots (cruising speed 32 knots) or twin MTU engines for a top speed of 35 knots (cruising speed 28 knots).
The 4 stateroom standard layout comprises an airy, open-plan salon and dining area behind the wheelhouse on the main deck where the extensive glazing is designed to provide panoramic sea views, even when seated. There are two en suite guest staterooms on the lower deck, a large VIP stateroom and a full-beam master stateroom amidships, together with a gym or SPA or a big pantry for best service on board 24h. Otam is to build what Clients desire and request with limitless solutions can be designed the reflect a Buyer’s preference in full.
“OTAM has built its reputation on bespoke solutions combined with high performance,” says Belardinelli. “The new OTAM custom range 115 is another example of our determination to offer owners yet more choice based on the same guiding principles. This is a boat that wants to be designed in collaboration with clients, not just for them.”
