INMACULATE CONDITION VERY WELL EQUIPPED
The principal goal has been to create a fast boat but at the same time easy to sail and to get to maximum performance. The main objective 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 with an optimal balance between upwind and downwind performance both in light and strong winds.
Shipyard: Italia Yachts - Venezia
The design is the result of the work of Italia Yachts Chief Designer, the Naval Architect Matteo Polli, strong of the previous design experiences with the Italia Yachts range and the M37, one of the most successful boats in the ORCi history. Matteo Polli has been co-working with Matteo Ledri (one of the few Italian to be involved in the latest edition of the America’s Cup - CapeHornEngineering) for the computational fluid dynamics analysis and with the designer Kristian Macchiut (KMD) for the style of the interiors and deck.

The yacht is equipped with an inboard diesel with saildrive 20cv bladed folding propeller racing version, place in a compartment easily inspected and soundproofed.
The large oil tank (61 liters) allows considerable autonomy at cruising speed incurred.
The IY 9.98 has a well-organized water system that includes 1 tank of 110 liters with level indicator on the panel.
All water intakes and discharges are flush with the hull.
The interior of IY 9.98 is divided in 2 cabins, one head (aft) and the central saloon that incorporates dinette, galley and chart table. The modern design surfaces in gelcoat is designed so that it can be functional in both racing and cruising. Some parts, such as closets and cabinets are made of fabric and can be removed to lighten the displacement in the race. The deck is made of marine plywood finished in laminate color choice. The 2 doors (head and aft cabin) have thresholds and are finished with aluminium techniques frames to increase endurance sports usage.
The “L” galley consists of a sink with mixer tap folding, a generous 80 liter cell fridge, a kitchen tilting 2 burner gas stove, drawers and other compartments.

Electrical and lighting. The panel is located above the chart table, where there are the circuit breakers for each service board, digital gauges for tank level and battery status. In a practical and accessible technical space dedicated to the electrical system, it is placed a 100 Ah battery while the engine battery 55Ah is positioned below the bed of the stern. The interior is well lit with LED spotlights creating a warm atmosphere in any room.

Carbon Spinnaker Pole
Running rigging: Dyneema
Notes: The mast is made of aluminum with high performance profile and tapered, armed 9/10 - 2 swept spreaders of 21° to facilitate the roach flakes, and has a rail for the pole. The boom in carbon. The rigging is discontinuous rod. turnbuckles. The lands of the shrouds are in the hull. The forestay, is PBO complete with Tuff Luff foil. The backstay is in low-stretch textile with Magic wheel system.. The rigging is in Dyneema® and in particular: a main halyard, jib halyard, spinnaker halyard at the masthead. Mast jack hidraulic by Cariboni.
Deck hardware: Ronstan
Winches: 6 Harken perfoma
Notes: All maneuvers are easily adjustable from the cockpit while retaining the uncluttered deck by ropes and equipment thanks to the steps built into the structure. The deck is equipped with the following:

The hull and deck are constructed in sandwich cores with PVC variable density depending on the area. The skins are made of reinforcements in biaxial and unidirectional E-glass impregnated with vinylester resin. In correspondence of the attack of the bulb, of the base of the mast, the passage of the rudder shaft and foot of the propeller, the PVC core is replaced by a monolithic lamination to improve the resistance to concentrated efforts and to avoid phenomena of delamination. The internal structural frame, laminated on female mold with unidirectional carbon fiber and biaxial glass + - 45 °, includes reinforcement of the bottom hull and some parts of the interior furniture, creating a single structure that carries the load of the mast, the keel and shrouds. All bulkheads are marine plywood 15mm thick and are gusseted to the hull, the internal structure and the deck. Hull and deck are finished in gelcoat, the bridge and the functional areas are treated with anti-slip made from the mold. KEEL The keel has a “T” configuration with the blade and torpedo in fusion of lead with 3% antimony. The geometry and airfoils have been designed and optimized with the help of external consultants and advanced software currently in use by the consortia of the America’s Cup. This has allowed to obtain a very efficient wing despite of a content draft. HELM The rudder blade is laminated with biaxial / unidirectional and PVC core female mold. The rudder circular section biconical, milled with blades of support, is anodized 6082. The stock bearings are self- aligning roller bearings. As an alternative to the bar in fiberglass, you can install a dual steering wheel (diameter 800mm). COCKPIT Large open cockpit aft with two benches to 1.70 m, which will have the aft portion containing and removable (optional) to transform the comfortable cockpit cruising in one perfect for racing. There is comfortable locker for stowage of the raft in the middle of the cockpit. The area under the cockpit behind the mainsheet is usable as storage and you have access to a large door located at the extreme aft. SKYLIGHTS AND DOORS A hatch in the cabin, a portlight in the bathroom and one in the aft cabin are present. The correct positioning and sizing ensure excellent ventilation without obstructing the deck. Also on deck two large side plexiglass windows are integrated, so you get a great interior brightness combined with a modern and sleek design of the deck. Optionally, you can add integrate two portlights on the side windows at the kitchen and correspondence.
The design team of Italia Yachts, Italian shipyard producer of luxury Blue Water Cruiser, has developed and realized a sportboat design of the length of 34”, adapting the characteristics to the specific demands of the client. The “Fuoriserie” models detach from the normal Italia Yachts range because the design follows the requests of owners that like to have a customized yacht. This approach allows the yard to explore alternative design spaces. LIKE NEW.
