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 synergic work between the 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 passage on the wave, safe and powerful.
The deck plan is practical and functional and the hull lines of IY 12.98 have a correct balance between comfort and performance, borrowing the fluid-dynamic concepts of the multi-winning IY 9.98 Fuoriserie for the distribution of volumes, while maintaining the characteristics of the interiors in absolute cruising style. The thrusts 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 shapes of the boat favor a variable waterline length: contained 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 interiors 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 range, the solutions respond to ergonomic studies to always guarantee excellent habitability and
comfort above standards.
