Improve-it = Otam 80HT

Otam continue to evolve its 80HT and with this new unit confirmed sold and started construction in March has now arrived in its seventh hull, in twenty years and all fully custom units.  This new hull #007 as Otam likes to call is the most customized yet, although we should have gotten used to the Genoa based builder where each unit is more customized to the previous and an evolution of the species.  Calling it an Improvement is also wrong as each Otam even the smaller ones are all mostly bespoke creations and very-custom units with even the shell changing and evolving.  For example this Otam 80HT will be fully build in a Kevlar Carbon construction and will feature bigger windows, with this giving a lighter feel to the hard-top structure looking similar to that of the 58 more then the other previous six 80s.  Unchanged are the engines with the Otam 80HT powered by twin MTU 2600hp and Arneson surface drives good for a top speed up to 48 knots, as is the naval architecture by Umberto Tagliavini, with the basis coming from the Fabio Buzzi designed 80 Record from 2001 which eventually became the Otam 80HT hull number one when this unit was transformed to a pleasure super sport yacht.
