The interiors of Italia 11.98

The interiors of Italia 11.98 are characterized by gelcoat surfaces, functional in both racing and cruising situations. The floor is made of marine plywood finished in anti-slip plastic laminate.
The layout provides three spacious cabins, two headrooms, one with toilet and sink and the other one with a comfortable shower, and a large saloon including the galley and the navigation chart table. All the three cabins, one forward and the two symmetrical aft ones, have standard nautical beds.

Besides, the two benches in the saloon can be transformed in two single beds (1.95 m). The saloon table with folding planes can accommodate up to 6 people and its structure offers a useful handrail.
In the L” galley there is a sink with folding mixer tap, a generous 150 liters fridge and a gimballed two-burners stove.

In the Bellissima configuration, it is also possible to change the chart table from the race version with a smaller one on the starboard, obtaining more space for storage and for a second refrigerator.
The entire interior layout is thought to provide a lot of storage spaces suitable for a family cruise.
