OTAM CUSTOM RANGE SD 35m M/Y GIPSY WINS THE WORLD SUPERYACHT AWARDS 2017 IN THE CATEGORY 34M TO 39.9M PLANING MOTOR YACHTS

We are pleased to announce that the M/Y Gipsy – the first unit in the Ligurian shipyard’s aluminum Otam Custom Range – has won a World Superyacht Award in the “Semi-Displacement or Planing Motor Yachts 34m to 39.9m” category on Saturday May 13th during the ceremony held by Boat International Media in Florence, Italy.

This result follows last February’s win in the ShowBoats Design Awards 2017 in the category “Best naval architecture 2017”.

Gianfranco Zanoni – Otam Yachts CEO commented: “This is the second important award for the Otam shipyard after last February’s, when Gipsy won in the “Best Naval Architecture for Semi-Displacement Yachts” category at the ShowBoats Design Awards 2017. This new award demonstrates the value of the direction we took with the Otam Custom Range, a direction that allows us to follow new opportunities, exploring the development of different products alongside owners who are looking for a high degree of customization. So we would also like to thank the owner of Gypsy who has allowed us to create such a unique product. We are proud to share our satisfaction with the rest of the team, including Tommaso Spadolini and Umberto Tagliavini at Marine Design Studio, for the excellent collaboration.”

The judges at The World Superyacht Awards 2017 have awarded the SD 35m M/Y Gipsy in the Semi-Displacement or Planing Motor Yachts 34m to 39.9m category. Among their motivations the clean lines and the optimization of exterior space stand out. The judges also evidenced “the modern style of the interiors, perfectly integrated with her exterior lines”.

At the same time the yacht was also commended for her ability to reach a speed of 20 knots and cruise with a range of 2,000 miles at a cruising speed of 11 knots. The yard from Genoa has managed to unite efficient hydrodynamics with elegant lines, with special attention paid to performance, sea-kindliness, range and fuel efficiency.

This the mantra of Otam Yachts, with their 63 years of history and construction based on the creation of yachts with exceptional sea keeping qualities and efficient, sporty performance.

The yard is extremely proud to receive this award as recognition not only for the yacht itself, but for the incredible passion and effort exhibited by the yard since its beginning in 1954.

M/Y OTAM GIPSY 35M – AT A GLANCE

Please find full details at the enclosed press release and a short description here below.

– Aluminum for maximum customization flexibility
– Superior volumes for the less than 300GT(295GT) category
– Naval Architect Umberto Tagliavini
– Stunning and unique lay-out and interiors by Tommaso Spadolini translating Owner’s needs and personal style
– Over 2000 nm of range and a maximum speed of 20 knots

The first Otam Custom Range 35 unit – M/Y Gipsy – is a three deck 35 meter long, 7.8 meter beam yacht, ordered by an experienced Italian owner who was searching for a full custom aluminum yacht, tailor-made to fit his lifestyle.

The new Otam Custom Range 35 offers a unique amount of living space onboard. Her aluminum construction allows the yard, in close collaboration with the client, to create a unique version that reflects personal taste both in interior layouts and exterior lines, both of which have been assigned to Tommaso Spadolini, the famous international yacht design office.

The interiors, again unique and full-custom built like a bespoke suit, are another Otam strength since ever. And with her 295 GRT displacement, therefore under 300 GRT “limit”, the yacht offers remarkable larger volumes than any other competitor in her category.

In regards to performance, the new Otam Custom Range 35, exploiting the yard’s engineering capabilities enhanced by the successful experience designing and building the Millennium Line, together with their long standing partner Naval Architect Umberto Tagliavini, has designed a very efficient semi-displacement hull that will give the Otam Custom Range 35 a top speed of 20 knots and a considerable range of over 2,000 nautical miles at 11 knots.
