Italia Yachts – Range Review


“Our philosophy is defined by CEO Franco Corazza: “We design stylish yachts to sail fast, safely and comfortably in all weather”. Italia Yachts are designed for long-distance sailing in a modern style inspired by the elegant lines of yesterday’s Classic Yachts.

Every design project starts with the creation of a perfectly balanced hull and sail plan; sailing an Italia Yacht everyone onboard feels secure and protected in all weather conditions. This design concept has made us a benchmark in the sailing world: in an Italia Yacht, you will rediscover the true pleasure of sailing.

The design and build of every model involves the skills of the whole team – each one an experienced sailor. Every team member contributes to the design bringing their own experience and skill to bear. This brings product development to an unmatched level of completeness resulting in an unrivalled harmony of hull design and sail plan.

The stern section is drawn to limit the wetted area, this makes for an easy motion forward of the mast counteracting the usual tendency of the bow to dig deep into waves. Thus, creating a smooth and comfortable ride. The adoption of particularly well-balanced sail plan and high-efficiency keel and rudder together with a lead torpedo bulb completes the clever design.

The input from in-depth sailing experience of the entire design team results not just in attractive lines, the layout of the boat also has a functional design giving a safe and easy sailing performance.

The well thought out design encompasses comfortable and stunningly attractive living spaces at the deck level. Maximum possible loads on sheets and halyards are calculated to select the right winch which is then positioned for easy use by the smallest crew. Running rigging is led below the coach roof to the winches leaving totally clear safe surfaces on deck. Generous stowage spaces are provided in deck lockers and safety equipment is positioned for immediate access.

Characterized by big, bright well-ventilated spaces Italia Yachts quality is seen clearly in their refined Interiors. Rounded corners, a complete lack of sharp edges and high-quality materials have become a distinctive mark of the brand.

Respectful of the boat builder’s art user-friendly spaces and well-designed handholds are designed to ensure comfort at port and at sea. Internal doors have curved profiles eliminating hard edges. Every cabin has multiple hatches ensuring good ventilation. In recognition of the importance of storage space for long-distance cruises stowage spaces below are plentiful and easily accessible.

Furniture is made of high-quality wood, cut with the grain for outstanding beauty. Soft covers can be chosen from a wide range of highest quality fabrics or leather thereby totally personalising your craftsman built interior.”

The Italia Yachts ‘Bellissima’ (Bluewater line) Range

Italia 9.98 / 34

“The 9.98 models were created by Italia Yachts chief designer Matteo Polli in collaboration with hull designer Matteo Ledri of CapeHorn Engineering for CFD analysis and the interior designer Kristian Macchiut of KMD. Italia 9.98 is a fast boat but at the same time easy to sail. The main project puropose has been to find the correct balance between the different kind of use, from windward-leeward races to offshore racing or cruising, obtaining a true all-round yacht with an optimal balance between upwind and downwind performance both in light and strong winds. In 2017, the Italia 9.98 Bellissima – almost identical in construction and performance to the 9.98 Fuoriserie- was launched. With only minor modifications needing to be made, the Bellissima is designed to be more comfortable to cruise.

Externally, the only differences between the pure performance Fuoriserie and the 9.98 Bellissima are: twin wheels, integrated bowsprit. The result is a fast and fun yacht, designed to excel at racing, and perfect for cruising.

The Bellissima version differs in the attractive fixed sliding lockers either side of the saloon and fore cabin, seat cushions that are deeper and more contoured – and the galley benefits from the addition of an oven. Floorboards are made of marine plywood with plastic grey colour antiskid. The two doors (bathroom and aft cabin) are equipped with aluminium frames to increase durability. The chart table is placed on the starboard side opposite to the “L” galley. As option there is also the possibility to choose the new luxurious interior in fabric and leather.”

Under the cockpit and stern benches are four large lockers in addition to the dedicated liferaft locker. The open cockpit is completed at the stern by a sunny, teak-covered bathing platform and swim ladder.

With a displacement of just 4.800 kg, Italia 10.98 limits its weight to the typical values of racing boats. This ambitious achievement is the result of a careful optimization of each part of the boat structure. Hull and deck are laminated in sandwich at a controlled temperature, with differentiated density PVC cores covered with vinylester resins. The bottom frame with carbon fibre reinforcements is laminated on a female mould and then glued and laminated to the hull bottom.

Below deck the Italia 10.98 has an impressive amount of space for in an 11 meter yacht. Both saloon and cabins have height and dimensions that create a delight for on board living. The mood is warm and welcoming, designed to create a comfortable environment. The furniture, finished in precious teak with a horizontal vein, gives a refined look to the interiors.

Also the design of the deck is the result of an extensive research in terms of ergonomics for various uses, design and aerodynamic. The internal layout is developed by the Design Team Italia Yachts coordinated by the designer Matteo Polli, in collaboration with KMD by Kristian Macchiut and Mirko Arbore & Partners. Italia 11.98 is proposed in a single basic model, starting from which it is possible to choose between two different set-up configurations, completely customizable according to the intended use.

The interior layout provides three cabins equipped with standard nautical beds, cabinets and enough storage spaces for a family cruise. There are also a large saloon, a spacious starboard headroom with toilet and sink, and a port headroom with shower and a locker for wet suit. In the Bellissima configuration, it is also possible to change the standard chart table with a smaller one, obtaining more space for a convenient storage cabinet and also for a second refrigerator. The lockers can be provided in fabric to reduce weight or in a rigid shell.

The deck layout is extremely clean and designed to ensure a great ergonomy during use in racing. The liferaft locker is advanced to the bow for a better weight distribution. The deck and the coachroof are designed to minimize wind resistance whilst ensuring a safe and easy moving around out of the cockpit.”

Very cared are the aspects related to comfort at sea, with careful study on the longitudinal trim and symmetry of the volumes while heeled as well as in the concentration of the weights as much as possible to limit the tendency to pitch.

The hull and deck are made of sandwich with biaxial and unidirectional glass fabrics impregnated with vinylester resin. In the central part of the boat ​​the structure consists of a grid of galvanized steel stringers and floors, to ensure a high resistance to concentrated loads. The structural frame is designed to constitute a closed structural ring, able to distribute in an optimal manner efforts on the hull and deck and to withstand the large loads from the keel, mast and rigging.

The deck layout remind the maxy yachts’ one. This allows to have wide areas free from equipment: a separate cockpit area, side decks and large areas for sunbathing. All the equipment is of the highest quality, starting from the oversized winches for jib and mainsail trim. All winches can be electric powered. On the coachroof there are tracks for the jib sheets inclusive of travellers, and 14 clutches and relative deck organizers are installed on the deck plan.

There are various alternatives on the starboard side: when the galley is at stern, organized on both sides along the passage leading to the cabin, there is another sofa that ends at the bow with the chart table. Alternatively, in this area you can opt for a large galley with a central work area.”
