A touch-and-go helipad is found on her bow, which is capable of handling a helicopter size of MD500E.

O’Ptasia will be available for charter through Atalanta Golden Yachts and she is staffed by a crew of 26 under the command of captain Nikos Demertzis. While she can easily accommodate a larger number of guests, for charter she is offered to a maximum of 12.

While O’Ptasia is now the largest yacht launched by Golden Yachts, it has been rumoured that an even larger yacht could be on the way soon. Stay tuned for more information as and when it becomes available.
