While we were in Genoa visiting the MYBA Charter Yacht Show we took time out to have a look at Gypsy the all new Otam 35, the first yacht of the semi-displacement aluminum custom range the high performance boat builder is constructing.
She is in her final stages of completion and is on time for launching and attending the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show later this year.
We found her to be 80% completed. The hull and superstructure are finished, as is all the painting. Propulsion systems and generators have been installed, while the interior is almost completed.
The new yacht offers a healthy amount of living space on board. Her aluminium construction has allowed the yard, in close collaboration with the client, to create a boat that reflects personal taste both in interior layouts and exterior lines.
Designed by Spadolini Design Studio she is at 295gt, just below the all important 300gt threshold.
The main deck is completely dedicated to her guest’s daily activities, and their leisure or business/corporate entertainment. The large spaces available include a nearly 40 square meter main salon with movie theatre and a full beam dining area forward.
The main deck also hosts the service areas, with a fully furnished galley and a 25 square meter pantry with separate access for the crew guaranteeing the best quality of life for the owner and his guests.
The upper deck, has been reserved for owner use and offers the potential of superb views and complete privacy.
Four en-suites guest cabins with twin and double beds and baths are on the lower deck, in an area connected by a hallway to the crew’s quarters. Crew access is carefully located without infringing on guest privacy in order to guarantee highest standard of service on board. Crew quarters comprise of 3 cabins and washrooms, the laundry and storerooms.
The layout also includes day-heads on each deck. Guests therefore do not have to return to their cabins, and the owner can host a considerable number of guests respecting complete privacy for both him and his family’s cabins and living areas.
The vessel is expected to deliver a top speed of 22 knots and a considerable range of 1,000 nautical miles at 11 knots.
In designing her special attention was paid to limiting her draught. The hull below the waterline features semi-tunnels that make her a very versatile yacht, perfect for a comfortable cruise in international waters where shallow waters become a key factors for consideration.
