OTAM, an Italian boat builder with 60 years of powerboating experience, launched their new Millennium 80 Open, whose sophisticated design turns heads on the water. OTAM is known for powerful performance, and the Millenium 80 Open lends to that aspect while combining luxury and elegance. This sporty megayacht starts with the Fabio Buzzi hull shape, and yacht designer Alberto Mancini emphasized speed with a very protective windscreen that wraps around both sides of the cockpit and terminates with the large carbon air intakes, clearly derived from automotive lines.
The deck layout takes advantage of the external cockpit with a facing twin C-shaped settee that can be covered with the Bimini (or an optional hardtop), and a fully equipped double bar complete with icemaker, refrigerator and grill for day cruising or longer voyages. The spacious sun bathing area is astern above the tender garage, with another sunpad zone on the foredeck. The interior is available in three- or four-cabin layouts, with the owner’s suite astern and the VIP suite forward.
The roll bar is color coordinated with the hull scheme offered in five custom color variations—Racing Blue, Maranello Red, Titanium, Black and Gold Grey. If these five don’t peak your interest, full custom color schemes are available. All the outdoor upholstery uses materials especially designed to integrate with the tones of the chosen hull color scheme. Top speed is 50 knots, but OTAM is still experimenting with propellers and confident that a new set of Rolla propellers will take the speed up to 55-58 knots in the future.
