The restyling of the Otam 58 GTS has been entrusted to Giuseppe Bagnardi of BG Design Firm. Both performance and interior and exterior comfort have been improved.
New Otam 58 GTS
Hull no. 26 of the iconic Otam 58 GTS, named ‘Bad Boy’, made its world debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2022. The restyling enhances the sporty character that everyone expects on an Otam yacht and strengthens its stylistic content, while maintaining its recognisability and respecting the shipyard’s DNA.
Hedonism and functionality
The Italian BG Design Firm, commissioned to update the design, has not only thought about hedonistic shapes but also functional ones: for example, two new air intakes integrated in the hardtop improve ventilation in the engine room, which is immediately accessible thanks to the hydraulic hatch that guarantees safety and immediate accessibility to the systems.
Two more air intakes positioned on the foredeck, on the other hand, are Otam‘s hallmarks.
The new motor yacht from the Genoese shipyards offers an en plein air sensation thanks to the windscreen and wraparound windows that distinguish the semi-open deckhouse but, at the same time, eliminate the disadvantages of a pure open, offering instead constant protection from the sun and wind. This solution provides a more aerodynamic profile and reduces turbulence to ensure better performance and greater comfort on board at very high speeds.
In the enclosed cockpit, there is a bar, a corner sofa and a comfortable dining area as well as two sundecks aft with a central passageway.
The bathing platform and drainage grates located in the transom have also been redesigned: the latter is now integrated and hidden in the boat’s name.
Below deck, on the other hand, the Otam 58 GTS has two double cabins, each with its own head. There is also an open plan galley and a third single cabin for a guest or crew member.
“Bad Boy” Performance
The nickname “Bad Boy” and the suffix GTS justify the character and intended use of the Otam 58 GTS: the yacht is built to achieve high performance, thanks to the two MTU 1825 hp engines coupled with ASD14 Arneson thrusters, which allow it to reach a cruising speed of 48 knots in total comfort and a top speed of 55.
What is unchanged is the high-performance hull by Tagliavini Marine Design, built using a mix of Aramat and vinylester resin to guarantee total safety and high comfort even at high speeds in all sea conditions.
As with all Otam creations, customisation is paramount and the Otam 58 GTS is built to the owner’s countless specifications, including a Böning dashboard for the helm station.
“Specialization, research, flexibility, iconic design, out-of-the-ordinary performance and exceptional efficiency are the values and characteristics that distinguish Otam after 67 years of history and the 58 GTS is no exception,” explains Matteo Belardinelli, Otam’s Sales & Communication Director “This is a perfect project for Otam, the ideal shipyard for a client who desires and obtains Total Freedom of Expression combined with performance and efficiency that is unrivalled in all sea conditions.”
