The new iconic Otam 70HT at Cannes Yachting Festival 2021

Otam confirms once again its strong identity and its aim of building yachts characterized by extreme customizations and excellent performance and reliability, making craftmanship the distinctive feature of the Italian shipyard. Proof of this is the new Otam 70HT that made its World debut at Cannes Yachting Festival 2021.

With one-off design by Giuseppe Bagnardi BG Design Firm, as well as bespoke engineering and hull lines by Umberto Tagliavini Marine Design, the new Otam 70HT is the epitome of the dynamic performance and timeless style that has made the iconic Italian brand instantly recognizable around the world. 

“The design is strongly inspired by the aeronautical world and luxury sports cars,” says Giuseppe Bagnardi di BG Design Firm studio. “It was essential to design the new 70-footer by taking into account the proportions and lines that have always distinguished Otam yachts.”

Strong attention has been paid to details and stylistic features typical of the Otam brand such as the low center of gravity, the large air intakes on the sides of the sundeck in the bow, as well as on the hard top. All air intakes convey into the spacious engine room, as in every Otam yacht. The exhaust vents are cleverly integrated into glossy black grilles in the aft bulwarks either side of the swim platform and can be accented with strip LED lighting, to become another design element themselves. 

As with all Otam products, customization is a trademark and a clear corporate choice. With an overall length of 22.30 meters, a beam of 5.40 meters and 21 degrees of deadrise, the 70HT offers an unmatched seaworthiness, unrivalled space and great comfort for a fast luxury cruiser of her size with extraordinary efficiency.

The owner of the first Otam 70HT chose a cockpit and salon with sofa seating along the portside for hosting large groups. Another cool design feature is the up-and-down electric glass screen separating the interior lounge and exterior cockpit, specifically requested by the owner. The glazing completely retracts between the two C-shaped sofas and, when lowered, opens up the interior and cockpit to provide a single en plein air space so owner and guests can interact whether they are inside or outside. The new OTAM 70HT offers a comfy sunbed on top of the transom tender garage together with a second generous volume sun bed on the foredeck, integrated in the center bow muscle. 

“The owner himself designed a 3-cabin custom layout and he decided not to have a tender garage in order to maximise the beach club area and to optimise the weight for higher performance. In fact, no two Otams are ever the same. This is the uniqueness of the Otam shipyard, that chooses not to limit its customers options but allows them to build their ideal yacht reflecting their personal needs and aesthetic taste”, says Matteo Belardinelli, Commercial Director for OTAM. “Among the countless options available, these are just some examples of how the yacht can be tailored to individual requests.”The new iconic Otam 70HT made its World debut at Cannes Yachting Festival 2021The new iconic Otam 70HT made its World debut at Cannes Yachting Festival 2021

A key feature of the interiors is the futuristic dashboard, also designed by Giuseppe Bagnardi BG Design Firm. It’s inspired by the aeronautical and automotive world and the design resembles the console of a jet fighter.

There are different options also available on the accommodation deck: OTAM does not impose any solution but it designs the interiors together with the customer, always delivering an exclusive final product. 
This first hull has a 3-cabin layout with an owner’s suite, two guests, separate galley and a crew cabin for two in the bow with independent access for a total privacy. Clients are free to choose their own layout and interior solutions, limitless customization is OTAM calling card, synonymous with luxury craftsmanship in the world. 

The first unit is powered by twin 2000-hp MTU engines coupled to Arneson drives and custom OTAM-Rolla propellers. 
The shipyard also offers a most powerful version with 2400hp CAT, reaching a top speed of 53+ knots which, combined with the hull designed by Marine Design by Scorzoni Tagliavini and Moltedo, ensures an unparalleled efficiency.
Seakeeper gyro stabilizers can be fitted for best comfort both under way and at anchor. The new iconic Otam 70HT made its World debut at Cannes Yachting Festival 2021The new iconic Otam 70HT made its World debut at Cannes Yachting Festival 2021
