World premiere for the first unit of the semi-displacement aluminium OTAM Custom Range at 2016 Monaco Yacht Show from 28th September to 1st October
– Aluminum for maximum customization flexibility
– Superior volumes for the less than 300GT (295GT) category
– Stunning and unique lay-out and interiors by Tommaso Spadolini translating Owner’s needs and personal style
– Over 2000 Nm of range and a maximum speed of 20 knots
The showcase of the prestigious Monaco Yacht Show 2016 it enriched with the first OTAM Custom Range 35 unit, a three deck 35 metre long, 7.8 metre beam yacht, ordered by an experienced Italian owner who was searching for a full custom aluminum yacht, tailor-made to fit his lifestyle.
The new OTAM Custom Range 35 offers a unique amount of living space onboard. Her aluminium construction allows the yard, in close collaboration with the client, to create a unique version that reflects personal taste both in interior layouts and exterior lines, both of which have been assigned to Tommaso Spadolini, the famous international yacht design office.
In addition the OTAM Custom Range 35 metre has a displacement of 295 GT, at the maximum limit of the category, offering superior volumes for the 300 GT category.
The interiors, again unique and full-custom built like a bespoke suit, are another OTAM strength since ever. And with her 295 GRT displacement, therefore under 300 GRT “limit”, the yacht offers remarkable larger volumes than any other competitor in her category.
With OTAM’s hull number one in the Custom Range – M/Y “GIPSY” – the client was very adamant that the layout would totally reflect his personal approach to life at sea.
The main deck is completely dedicated to her guest’s daily activities, and their leisure or business/corporate entertainment. The large spaces available include a nearly 40 square metre main salon with movie theatre and a full beam dining area forward. The main deck also hosts the service areas, with a fully furnished galley and a 25 square metre pantry with separate access for the crew guaranteeing the best quality of life for the owner and his guests.
The four VIP cabins with twin and double beds and relative en-suites baths are on the lower deck, in an area connected by a hallway to the crew’s quarters. Here too crew access is carefully located without infringing on guest privacy in order to guarantee highest standard of service on board and the slightest interaction with members of crew. Crew quarter is equipped with 4 cabins and washrooms, the laundry and storerooms. The full owner’s upper deck, offering exclusive views and complete privacy, was expressly requested by the client, re-launching a popular concept among experienced owners who desire exclusivity and a more intimate relation with the sea. The layout also includes day-heads on each deck. Guests therefore don’t have to return to their cabins, and the owner can host a considerable number of guests respecting complete privacy for both him and his family’s cabins and living areas.
In regards to performance, the new OTAM Custom Range 35, exploiting the yard’s engineering capabilities enhanced by the successful experience designing and building the Millennium Line, together with their long standing partner Naval Architect Umberto Tagliavini, has designed a very efficient semi-displacement hull that will give the OTAM Custom Range 35 a top speed of 20 knots and a considerable range of over 2,000 nautical miles at 11 knots.
