6,500 MILES IN LESS THAN TWO MONTHS COMBININIG UNIQUE PERFORMANCE WITH EXTREME LUXURY
OTAM 80HT ATTITUDE -In just two months since delivery, the Owner of the OTAM 80 HT Attitude has travelled over 6,500 miles in the Mediterranean Sea, proving that the claims on the yacht’s performance and reliability are true.
With its twin MTU main engines (2600hp each), coupled to Arneson drives, the sixth hull in the OTAM 80 series has confirmed a maximum speed of 50 knots. The result is also due to the optimisation of the patented Otam-Rolla 6-blade propellers, which resulted in significant gains in terms of fuel efficiency, speed, manoeuvrability and further reduction of vibrations. 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.
This performance, which exceeded expectations (the contract’s stated maximum speed was 47 knots), is combined with acoustic comfort that makes life on board even more pleasant: the level of noise at anchor is around 42 dB in the master suite.
Double the room in the new bow area
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. The impression upon boarding is that of stepping onto a vessel far larger than an 80-foot yacht. This is partly possible thanks to the valued collaboration with Umberto Tagliavini Marine Design&Services, one of the historical partners of the Genoa-based shipyard.
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.
The 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. The owner further requested an extra staff cabin for his chief stewardess/chef conveniently placed next to the galley. The Miele-equipped galley itself goes above and beyond standard specifications with a washing-drier machine in a separate alcove, makes Attitude a yacht with considerable content without reducing performance in any way – performance is actually significantly improved.
