“The design is strongly inspired by the aeronautical world and luxury sports cars,” says BG Design Firm studio.Conspicuous references to the automotive industry are the scooped air intakes in the hull and each side of the sunbed on the foredeck, as well in front of the windscreen and under the ‘manta-ray’ radar arch. These all channel air into the spacious engine room. 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.The imposing bow adds muscle to the profile and the sweeping sheer line extends in an unbroken line from stem to stern. The raked superstructure, which BG Design Firm studio compares to “the suspended cabin of an airplane”, adds to the aerodynamic impression of speed and acceleration. In fact, powered by twin 2000-hp MAN or MTU engines coupled to Arneson drives and custom Otam-Rolla propellers, the 70HT has an eye-watering top speed of 50 knots (OTAM is also looking to offer an engine option to provide higher speeds).Combined with the efficient and slippery deep-V hull with 21 degrees of deadrise for solid tracking and seakeeping, the result is a high-performance masterpiece of design and engineering. Seakeeper gyro stabilizers can also be fitted for best comfort.The owner of the first Otam 70HT in production chose a cockpit and salon with sofa seating along the portside for hosting large groups and a comfy sunbed on top of the transom tender garage together with a second generous volume sun bed on fore deck bow area. There are multiple options available on the accommodation deck. The first hull currently in production has a 3-cabin layout with a full-beam owner’s suite forward, separate galley and a separate crew cabin for two in the bow, but clients are free to choose their own layout solution, interiors at full client limitless choice.The OTAM 70HT will make its international debut at the autumn boat shows in 2021.
