Omikron Yachts, the new brand of Olympic Marine’s established shipyard, is presenting its first production model, the OT60, at the Olympic Yacht Show 2023 – an event that the Greek nautical institution intends to make memorable.
The OT60 was recognized at the Venice Boat Show last June as the herald of an attractive new segment in the market, combining the easygoing lifestyle and quiet efficiency of sailing with the convenience and space of a motor yacht.
At the 2023 Olympic Yacht Show, held from the 19th to the 22nd of October, Omikron Yachts will have on display two OT60, energized by a summer of positive first impressions and fun on the water, which continued from its debut in Venice this June. The new model proposes a unique approach to sustainability at sea that embraces technology with an eye to the future, making a perfect representative for Olympic Marine shipyard.
A testament to the capability of the Omikron Technical Office, the OT60 is an elegant eco-cruiser, that provides more space at a comfortable pace. Four cylinder engines and a custom hull design by Juan-K, optimized for cruising at 10-12 knots, allow the OT60 to travel up to 1000 nautical miles, consuming just 1.5 liters per nautical mile. The inspiration for the OT60 comes from the waters surrounding Olympic Marine, the habits of visitors and the local culture, rendering the chance to observe her in perfect harmony with her natural habitat.
The interior and exterior design are the work of Lorenzo Argento, who studied the project around the goal of a beautiful journey, which he realized in both appearance and reality. Unexpected spaces play an important role, such as the double-deck annex for guests and the highly functional rooftop arrangement. Ciarmoli Queda Studio styled the interiors with natural materials, neutral colors and tactile finishes, rendering every space and surface on board both comfortable and inviting.
Chairman of Olympic Marine, Omikron Yachts’ parent company, Nikolas Dendrinos commented, “We are anticipating this years Olympic Yacht Show like never before, because now we have skin in the game – a production model that we built to reflect our passion and our seas. Following the successful debut of the OT60 in Venice and her electrifying reception from the industry, it’s time for her to come home – not to rest, but to host our guests! To see our vision realized is a true joy, one that is multiplied when we share it with the boating community. The Olympic Yacht Show is the perfect opportunity to consolidate the momentum of a busy summer and give the OT60 the welcoming she deserves.”
