2015 Cannes preview: OTAM Millennium 80 HT “Mr Brown”

The 25-meter OTAM Millennium 80 HT will debut at Cannes Yacht Festival showcasing sportiness, technology and elegance.

OTAM has made the most of 60 years of experience in powerboating, and this OTAM Millennium 80 HT firmly represents the boatyard competence in terms of performance, with a rather more luxurious appeal.

Developed on the typical OTAM deep-V hull, OTAM Millennium 80 HT can be powered by two or four engines: the two 2600 HP MTUs with Arneson Surface Drives can be replaced by four 1620 HP MTUS with Trimax transmissions: the latter is what this “Mr. Brown” mounts, for a top speed in excess of 54 knots even with the extra weight of the interior décor.


Despite the almost racing solution, this Millenium 80 is extremely docile during low speed maneuvers, when the two inner engines are deactivated to reduce the power in use.

The main deck shows all the OTAM experience in high performance, thanks to the four bucket seats, covered in leather and with power adjustments, which allow to the driver to decide among a standing or a seated position and everything in-between; the spring mount is adjustable as well so to find the perfect level of comfort in any sea condition. Instruments are doubled, for the pilot and co-pilot, the wheel being on the port side. When at high speed, the electronic management allows to control the four engines with a single lever.


Sporty yet minimal

Outside, every inch of the OTAM Millennium 80 HT talks of high performance: no guardrails hinder the aggressive look. The sides gets sleeker towards the aft, where a cockpit hosts the usual center solarium. The tender enters in a garage underneath through a slide included in the transom.


The deck salon features an ample lounge area, consistent with the look of the boat. Interiors have been designed by architect Achille Salvagni in cooperation with OTAM technical staff. Inspiration comes from a minimal look: joinery like teak and ebony, raw fabrics, natural shaded leather, all concur for a charming and cozy atmosphere and enhance the availability of space. A hiding door connects cockpit and salon, creating a unified space. The relax area feature a living area with comfortable linen sofas and a round ebony table.

In this four-engined version, the yacht has three rooms with en-suite and two crew cabins. The owner’s suite uses the whole bow, with the two guest ones sporting double beds. For maximum privacy, the galley and the crew quarters are separated with access from the foredeck
