OTAM has unveiled designs for its new custom OTAM 85 GTS with gullwings. Inspired by supercar design, the 85 is the result of increased research following the success of its 80 HT series.
Developed with long-term partner Umberto Tagliavini’s Marine Design, and in collaboration with Niccolò Pasquini and Alessio Riccobaldi from R+P Architecture, the hardtop design has a structure based on a central spine.
While underway, with the wings lowered, guests are protected from the elements and afforded very little turbulence, while at anchor the wings can be raised to allow close contact with the surrounding nature. The result is a flexible open model that offers maximum comfort.
This sensation is amplified by an open transom, which gives easy and safe access to the water.
The 85 GTS offers a choice of configurations for the bow area for the first time, including the possibility of a spacious lounge and coffee table or spacious sunbathing area with maximum privacy. The “infinite customisation possibilities” continue throughout, with the owner afforded the choice of all details on board, from interior layout and technical setup to “every single particular”.
The two propulsion options offered for the 85 GTS are twin 2,600hp MTU 16v engines for a top speed of 45 knots and cruising speed of 35 knots, or twin 1,925hp CAT C32 engines for a top speed of 38 knots and cruising speed of 32 knots respectively. Both options foresee Arneson transmissions.
