Italian boatbuilder Otam unveiled its Millennium 55 HT at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The express yacht has twin Arneson drives with two Caterpillar C32 engines that deliver 1,724 hp apiece for a top speed of more than 55 knots.

The design, 61 feet long, with a beam of 15 feet, is from 2008-09 and was created as a support boat for superyachts.

Owners can specify construction in advanced composites such as Kevlar and carbon fiber or straight-up fiberglass, depending on performance requirements.
