Italian boat builder OTAM has announced that its “one off” OTAM 85 GTS fast cruiser has been delivered to its owner and will debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September.
According to Matteo Belardinelli, OTAM sales and communication manager, the idea for the 85 GTS originated at the 2017 Cannes boat show, where there was interest in the OTAM 80’s performance and efficiency, as well as its second, full-beam master suite in the center of the yacht. A number of clients expressed their interest in a “different and open or semi-open” version of that yacht, Belardinelli stated in a company press release.
The custom 85 GTS, powered by a pair of 2600hp MTU engines and Arneson transmission, has a top speed of 50 knots, with a cruising speed of more than 35 knots, according to OTAM. It features two master suites, an open lounge with galley, a day head, and crew quarters in the bow that can be accessed independently from the VIP and guest areas.
