Italian shipyard Otam Yachts has announced the signing of a new contract for the construction of its 35.2m SD 35, the first in a new line of Tommaso Spadolini designed all-aluminium, semi-dispalcement superyachts.

The tri-deck yacht has been commissioned by an Italian client and Gianfranco Zanoni, CEO of Otam declared,  “We are extremely proud of this new contract, further proof of the quality of the shipyard’s knowhow and of the ‘Made in Italy’ - owner, designer, architect and shipyard – all Italian!”

The yacht will feature a beam of 7.8m and a volume of 295GT, accommodating 10 guests in five cabins and six crew in four cabins. The owner of this vessel has specified the positioning of a private owner’s suite on the upper deck.

The vessel was engineered by naval architect Umberto Tagliavini, and is derived from Otam’s Millennium line of vessels. As such efficiency and speed have become a key focus, and the vessel is expected to have a top speed of 22 knots, and a range of 1000nm at 11 knots.

Aluminium fabrication has already begun and delivery has been earmarked for 30 June 2016.
