Omikron Yachts has revealed plans for a new flagship, the OT-80, an 80-foot eco cruise slated to launch in 2025.
In the wake of Omikron Yachts’ pioneering model, the OT-60, recently clinching the European Powerboat Award for Long Range yachts, the shipbuilding brand of Olympic Marine has commenced development of a new venture, the OT-80. The 80-foot Eco Cruiser is set to launch in 2025, marking a significant milestone in the shipyard’s journey of innovation and excellence.
The OT-60, admired for its sustainable and stylish approach, has now been recognised for its design, inspired by the Eastern Mediterranean island-hopping ethos, which harmoniously blends sailing efficiency and power yacht convenience. The yacht’s ability to travel 1,000 nm at eight knots, in any sea condition, while consuming just 1.25 litres per nautical mile is a testament to the unparalleled efficiency of the naval engineering by Juan-K. The yacht’s exterior and interior, a creation of Lorenzo Argento, embodies the essence of a beautiful journey. The interiors, styled by Ciarmoli Queda Studio, feature natural materials, neutral colors, and tactile finishes, offering unparalleled comfort and luxury.
The OT-80, expanding on the voyage-centric concept of the OT-60, will test the waters of an even more demanding and competitive market. This new model, like her award-winning sister, underscores Omikron Yachts’ commitment to comfort, efficiency, and safety on extended cruises, encapsulating the shipyard’s vision for easygoing, sustainable seafaring.
Feedback from the boating community and the success of the OT-60 have been instrumental in shaping the concept and design of the OT-80, ensuring it meets and surpasses market expectations. Designer Lorenzo Argento and Naval Architect Juan-K are collaborating with the shipyard again to go beyond the OT-60 (below) in every dimension.
“The OT-60 is not just a yacht; she is an ambassador of our nautical culture, to see her embraced on the international stage is truly emotional,” says Nikolas Dendrinos, Chairman of Olympic Marine. “Her new sister, the OT-80, is not just a larger model; it’s putting a magnifying glass on our vision for the sustainable future of yachting. With expectations set high by our debut model, we are working harder than ever to ensure that all our stakeholders and, most importantly, the future owners of the OT-80 will be thrilled.
