O’Ptasia Strikes Gold for Golden Yachts

The Greek shipyard behind “O” themed megayachts like O’Mega, O’Pari, and O’Neiro has a new launch in its fleet. She’s O’Ptasia, splashed at Golden Yachts, coming in at 278’9” (85 meters).

Golden Yachts’ history dates to the mid-1990s. It began as a consulting firm, for the construction of O’Pari. The nearly 130-footer (39.47-meter) saw delivery in 1997. The following year, Golden Yachts acquired the 138-foot (42-meter) O’Rea, delivered in 1982, and refitted her. Shortly thereafter it oversaw the transformation of the 269-foot (82-meter) O’Mega in China. O’Mega completed her outfitting at Golden Yachts’ yard in Greece.

As for O’Ptasia, all construction and outfitting has been taking place at that same yard. Interior design is by Studio Vafiadis, which has worked with Golden Yachts on a few previous projects. In fact, they collaborated on O’Pari and O’Neiro, among others. They also have another megayacht, O’Mathilde, in build. Renderings of O’Ptasia reveal a design dominated by light, creamy colors and overall contemporary look. Given the large LOA and 45-foot (13.8-meter) beam, you can imagine that spaces will be more than ample.

The same holds true due to the head count. O’Ptasia is made for an owner’s party of 24 and a crew capacity of 26, plus the captain. Since the megayacht will charter, she has amenities highly focused on entertaining. Guests can indulge in a cinema, for instance, which is conveniently adjacent to an upper-deck VIP suite. (How sweet that suite is, too, encompassing 914 square feet, or 85 square meters.) Of course, O’Ptasia has a beach club, too, complete with a spa.

Those who enjoy an invigorating workout can head up to the bridge-deck lounge. Alternately, they can take out any of a wide variety of watertoys. Actually, “variety” seems like an understatement. Consider, for instance, that O’Ptasia carries four SeaBobs, two Jetsurfs, three Sea-Doo PWCs, three kayaks, two paddleboards, and two Hobie Mirage Eclipse pedal boards. Wakeboards, waterskiis, and a slalom mono-ski are available, too. And, we can’t overlook the Aquaglide Jungle Jim inflatable climbing pyramid, or the ocean pool, or the inflatable slide.

Sea trials should confirm a cruising speed of 16 knots, under Caterpillar power. Come delivery, O’Ptasia will be available for charter.
