IY 12.98

Italia Yachts 12.98 was born to allow an unlimited navigation, maintaining the feeling of performance fast cruiser and sensations at the helm of a true thoroughbred, even in pleasantness and easiness typical of the Italia Yachts models manoeuvre. The project data suggest an all-round behaviour, where the performance match easy handling, safety and comfort. On the waves, Italia 12.98 sail powerful, steady and soft giving an exciting upwind sailing experience. The boat is very easy to handle, always light at the helm, also allowing the use in racing at high levels thanks to the excellent value rating/performance.


The deck layout is ergonomic and functional, and the hull lines of IY 12.98 contemplate a proper balance between comfort and performance, borrowing the fluid concepts developed for the IY 9.98 Fuoriserie to the distribution of volumes, for the interior in perfect cruising style. The fore and aft rake are more obvious than the other models of the yard. The result is a smaller wetted surface area for the benefit of performance in light wind conditions. Aft waterlines sections allow a variable dynamic length, short in light wind, longer with increasing speed.The aspects related to navigation comfort are very cared, thanks to a careful study on the longitudinal trim and symmetrical volumes while heeled, as well as in the concentration of the weights as much as possible to limit the pitching


Fuoriserie is the lighter, more race-oriented variant. The number and positioning of the winches is designed to be functional for racing and the deck equipment layout can be customized according to the crew's preference. In both versions there is no compromise in terms of on-board life.


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.
