With hull lines drawn to perfection by ORCi-wizard Matteo Polli, no changes were necessary to the hull, but the deck and superstructure receive an overhaul with a broad deckhouse window replacing the original three smaller units. This change also impacts below deck with a notable increase in natural light flooding into the newly-designed interior.
The interior is where the major changes take place where everything changes except for the position of the bulkheads, conditioned by a structural matrix, found across all Italia Yachts models which ensures excellent rigidity.
The interior design concept was handled by Arbore & Partner with the interior architecture left in the hands of Emanuele Pillon who worked with a decisive hand, modifying all the environments from the point of view of the materials, colours and organisation of the internal spaces. The essence used is a light oak which contributes to enhancing the internal brightness and enters into a harmonious play with other materials, such as leather, steel and mirrors.
As for the organization of the individual cabin spaces, the designers moved the aft heads from the starboard side to the port side, leaving more space for the galley with an “L” plan in front of which a piece of furniture was placed which can accommodate a dishwasher and galley material.
The saloon has a fairly classic layout, but carefully designed to maintain the same level of hospitality, increasing ergonomics, and lightening the furnishing that make up the interior. A large comfortable settee with dining table to port and, on the starboard side, a second settee, create a comfortable, spacious lounge atmosphere when the space is not used for meals.
Much has also been done regarding artificial lighting. In fact, the spotlights disappear, with the exception of the two located at the entrance of the square, to leave space for a diffused light that filters through the wooden slats that run along the sides, interrupting at the height of the windows.
The first of this new generation Italia Yachts 15.98 is already in construction and will be launched in May alongside the eagerly anticipated Italia Yachts 14.98.
