various alternatives

Twelve versions to choose from

Various layouts are available, including large aft owner’s cabin versions. Two to five cabin layouts are available. A bow crew cabin option is offered complete with sink and wc. The styling ensures optimum brightness while maintaining a warm and cosy atmosphere.

The saloon, offered in two different versions, is bright and airy thanks to the many portlights, of which seven are openable. On the port side of the main cabin, the dining table and sofa seating for eight can be served by further seats on the opposite side.

There are various alternatives on the starboard side: when the galley is at stern, organized on both sides along the passage leading to the cabin, there is another sofa that ends at the bow with the chart table. Alternatively, in this area you can opt for a large galley with a central work area.

everything in the right place

A large cockpit

The large teak cockpit is divided into three areas. The front part is reserved for guests and completely free from equipment. The benches, 2.30 meters long and 58 cm wide, also perfect for sunbathing, are served by a large table with folding wings, protected by a sprayhood, supplied as standard. Under the benches there are two deep lockers for equipment.

In line with the wheels, the cockpit floor is lowered; the manouvering area is concentrated close to the wheels, with enough space for the crew but with ergonomics that allows the helmsman to control the whole boat using the four winches. Behind the wheels a flat and clear surface can be fully allocated to sunbathing area, in direct connection with the sea.

Under the cockpit floor there is a large storage compartment accessible by three lockers to store equipment and facilities, while on one side there is a liferaft locker.

related to comfort at sea

The water lines: performance and comfort

Italia 15.98 is design to let you live well on board while sailing. Development of the excellent hull that characterizes the smaller sister Italia 13.98, Italia 15.98 earns the internal hull volume and livebility on deck without substantially increasing the wet surface.

The hull has flared sections with knee high and deep deadrise at the bow. The shape allows a variable stern waterline length, limited with low wind, stretches dynamically with increasing speed.

Very cared are the aspects related to comfort at sea, with careful study on the longitudinal trim and symmetry of the volumes while heeled as well as in the concentration of the weights as much as possible to limit the tendency to pitch.
