Nominated for 2023 European Yacht of the Year
Italia Yachts 12.98 is a completely new project which is born with a tapered and fast hull to be fun while cruising and racing. This project is the result of the synergetic work between modern design and hydrodynamic research and simulations with data analysis entrusted to a pool of professionals. In few words: a hull with sleek and elusive lines, to always guarantee the best seakeeping, safe and powerful.
COMFORT AND PERFORMANCE
The deck plan is practical and functional and the hull lines of IY 12.98 have the correct balance between comfort and performance, borrowing the fluid-dynamics concepts of the multi-winning IY 9.98 and 11.98 Fuoriserie for the distribution of volumes, while maintaining the characteristics of the interiors in absolute cruising style. The angles at the stern and bow are more evident than the other models of the shipyard. The smaller wetted surface is an all-round benefit of performance in light wind conditions. The shape of the hull favors a variable waterline length: with little wind, it dynamically stretches with increasing speed and the heel. The aspects related to comfort in navigation are very accurate, to mitigate pitching.
The deck plan includes a teak deck and a layout optimized for cruising. So that navigation is easy and comfortable for a family or a smaller crew, without compromising on speed or feeling at the helm.
In the interior of the IY 12.98 the leitmotif is ecology, nature, respect for the environment: wicker, cotton and linen fibers interpreted with technological and innovative solutions to create an elegant environment, without weighing down the boat. As in the whole Italia Yachts range, the solutions respond to ergonomic studies to always guarantee excellent habitability and comfort above standards.
