Italia 9.98, powerful and balanced
Even if the Italia 9.98 is the smallest boat in the fleet, it encloses all the most important features defining the Italia Yachts brand. Italia 9.98 is designed specifically for fun sailing and is particularly dedicated to handicap racing (ORC and IRC), but it is also well indicated for short cruises.
Italia 9.98 is a fast boat but at the same time easy to sail. The main project purpose 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 yacht with an optimal balance between upwind and downwind performance both in light and strong winds.
Italia 9.98: one spirit, two versions
The 9.98 models were created by Italia Yachts chief designer Matteo Polli in collaboration with hull designer Matteo Ledri of CapeHorn Engineering for CFD analysis and the interior designer Kristian Macchiut of KMD.
In 2017, the Italia 9.98 Bellissima - almost identical in construction and performance to the 9.98 Fuoriserie - was launched. With only minor modifications needing to be made the Bellissima is designed to be more comfortable to cruise.
Italia 9.98 will have you sailing faster and safer. Winner of two consecutive ORC World Championships 9.98 Fuoriserie is a pure race version. The 9.98 Bellissima is equally as happy flat out in race mode or on a relaxing family cruise.
Italia 9.98 Bellissima: reinterpreted for cruising
In 2017, the Italia 9.98 Bellissima - almost identical in construction and performance to the 9.98 Fuoriserie- was launched. With only minor modifications needing to be made, the Bellissima is designed to be more comfortable to cruise.
Externally, the only differences between the pure performance Fuoriserie and the 9.98 Bellissima are: twin wheels, cockpit benches in synthetic teak, integrated bowsprit.
The result is a fast and fun yacht, designed to excel at racing, and perfect for cruising.
Italia 9.98 Bellissima interior design
The Bellissima version differs in the attractive fixed sliding lockers either side of the salon and fore cabin, seat cushions that are deeper and more contoured - and the galley benefits from the addition of an oven. Floorboards are made of marine plywood with plastic grey colour antiskid. The two doors (head and aft cabin) are equipped with aluminum frames to increase durability. The chart table is placed on the starboard side opposite to the "L" galley.
As an option there is also the possibility to choose the new luxurious interior in fabric and leather.
