Project: Otam 58 Millennium Open

Based on the success of the Otam 55 Millennium, which later this year was also modified as the 58 Millennium HT, the new 58 Millennium Open represents the next step for the Otam shipyard, renowned for building rock solid sport yachts with 50 knots plus performance. The 58 Millennium Open takes a new direction for the Italian, Santa Margherita builder offering a pure fast heavy open day boat, in what is a big 19 metre size. While the super fast sea keeping hull of the Otam comes from the HT sister, the boat has some important new modifications worth of noting, like the solarium for natural light on the deck, and the cockpit layout now offering two sunpads per side, and 2 settees one c-shaped to port behind the helm station and an l-shaped to starboard of which to fore lies also an l-shaped wetbar. Standard interior layout offers 2 separate cabins, a spacious galley to port, c-shaped settee to starboard and a day head. Owners cabin is to fore with a separate shower stall and head, and the guest cabin is located mid-ship. Still speaking of interiors on an Otam is always a bit superfluous as all the boats are custom made, but this is in principle the standard option. Power for the Otam 58 Millennium Open comes from twin Caterpillar 1670hp each, which the builder is very confident will give 50 knots cruising speeds in the out most comfort in various sea conditions.
