Italia Yachts 9.98 – SAIL 2020 Best Boats Nominee


Bring on the monohulls! In a world increasingly given over to multihull sailing, SAIL magazine’s “Best Boats” class of 2020 brings with it a strong new group of keelboats, including everything from luxury cruisers nipping at the heels of their mega-yacht brethren to a number of great-looking new performance boats.

Nominated in the Monohulls Performance category is the all-conquering Italia Yachts 9.98 Fuoriserie

“When it created its 9.98, Italia decided to market two very different versions of the boat: a “Bellissima” version, optimized for cruising as well as racing; and a “Fuoriserie” stripped-down racing version that is only now making its debut on American shores. Designed by Matteo Polli, the Fuoriserie has been optimized as a kind of “all-around” raceboat that will do equally well on all angles of sail and a variety of different racecourses. To this end, the hull and deck are constructed in vinylester, with a PVC core and a combination of biaxial and unidirectional fibers, all designed to maximize stiffness while minimizing weight. Similarly, the boat’s T-keel comprises 40 percent of the boat’s overall displacement, and for those with the wherewithal, the boat’s tapered 9/10th fractionally rigged tapered aluminum mast can be swapped out for one that is all-carbon. Best of all, the accommodations, while spartan, are hardly hellish, making the saloon a nice place to hang out whether you’re off watch or between races.”
