After an exciting season of success on the regatta fields: 2 world titles, 5 boats in the first 5 positions in the ORC Class and 7 in the first 9, Italia Yachts is ready to celebrate the world premiere of the launch of Italy Yachts 12.98 new.
A brand new project expected by those looking for a boat built to navigate, which offers great interior comfort, livable with great pleasure even for a long time on a cruise, and the fun of driving a solid, safe and well-calibrated vessel. . In the design, entrusted to Maurizio Cossutti, Alessandro Ganz in collaboration withItalia Yachts Design Office hydrodynamic simulations and data analysis to achieve floating lines that are made to glide on the water and allow the best passage on the wave have been important. Lines that are light and less aggressive than the latest born in Italia Yachts.
Light at the helm and easy to carry, even the new IY 12.98 maintains the distinctive characteristics of the entire Italia Yachts range. If the exterior and deck are well designed for living in the open without obstruction, thanks to the passage below the deck of all maneuvers and the flushing hatches, the cockpit also leaves ample space completely free of obstructions to easily pass from stern to bow. The classic folding beach becomes a beautiful terrace by the water. The interpretation of the interior of IY 12.98 is the result of the pencil of Mirko Arbore & Partners “they are a development of 11.98 and a simplification of 14.98. The main concept on which the study of the interior of IY 12.98 is based was lightness and comfort on a cruise .The interior design focuses on recreating the same warm and inviting atmosphere as at home on the boat. To emphasize this, the square ofIY 12.98 Beautiful it is furnished with real sofas, with high and enveloping sides, reminiscent of the comfort of sitting at home. The same concept has been carried over to the bed in the owner’s cabin with a high backrest that leaves the sides of the boat free to give freedom to movement to the blackout curtains. The bulkheads have a new concept that becomes “lamps”, in fact it is with a game of layering of multi-level coatings that the entire boat’s ambient light is configured on the bulkheads. The materials chosen for the bulkheads are textured with rope, linen and cotton effects. It is clear that there is no shortage of wood on the tall cabinets and on the finish of the sofas and on the table, to warm the environment and make it more inviting”, explains the designer. The Fuoriserie version fills the same cannons as the Bellissima, and lightens the weights a lot, so that the boat remains comfortable, but is faster and lighter for those who, in addition to cruising, intend to dedicate themselves to competitions.
To better understand the philosophy of the yard, which focuses on the double soul of the hulls, interpreting both the comfort of the interior and the competitions, where there is no lack of great successes, Italia Yachts also exhibits two IY 14.98 in Bellissima and Sartoriale versions in Genoa and Cannes, where the attention on details in the interior are marked.
