New Otam 80HT Attitude delivered exceeding performance parameters

During sea trials the yacht exceeded her contractual obligations in relation to performance, efficiency and comfort. For example, the twin MTU main engines (2600hp each) coupled to Arneson drives were expected to provide a top speed of 47 knots, but the actual redline speed was 50 knots. This higher performance has been combined with more acoustic comfort as at-anchor sound levels of 42dB were recorded in the owner’s suite instead of the expected 45dB.

to the insistence of our CEO and former offshore champion, Gianfranco Zanoni, we were also able to further optimise the patented Otam-Rolla 6-blade propellers,” adds Matteo Belardinelli, OTAM Sales & Communication manager. “This resulted in significant gains in terms of fuel efficiency compared with other yachts in her class. At 35 knots, for example, the yacht consumes 280 litres per hour per engine; at 40 knots 340 litres per hour per engine; and at 46 knots a modest 410 litres per hour per engine.

With her gunmetal grey hull and white topsides, the sleek Attitude embodies the mission of the OTAM brand to create full-custom, sporty yachts tailored to the individual preferences of its discerning clients. On specific request of the owner, bespoke features include the restyled foredeck with large sunbed and height-adjustable table to maximise the usability of this open-air space. In fact, combined with the aft cockpit and its horseshoe-shaped sofa seating, the available exterior space is double that of previous models.

Remarkable for a high-performance 80-foot yacht, the tender bay under the aft sunbed is able to house a 3.95m Williams jet tender. The larger tender ensures more comfortable guest transfers for guests and reduces the number of ship-to-shore operations.

four-cabin interior layout comprises a full-beam master suite amidships, a twin guest cabin on the portside and a forward VIP suite with generous ceiling heights of 2.10m. owner further requested an extra staff cabin for his chief stewardess/chef conveniently placed next to the galley. 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.

Notwithstanding the fact that the OTAM yard in Genoa was obliged to halt production for two months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Attitude was delivered to her proud owner with a delay of just 4 weeks at the end of May.
