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; is 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. The essence of a pure racer Italia 9.98's hull, keel and rudder were designed using extensive computational fluid dynamics modeling to maximize velocity performance using velocity prediction programs. The resulting design has slender waterlines and straight buttock lines when upright. This gives the advantage on downwind legs, whereas at increasing heeling angles, waterlines get much wider giving greater stability whilst remaining symmetrical and balanced. This design has led to the perfect balance of performance and handling. Italia 9.98 Fuoriserie Interiors Design Italia 9.98 Fuoriserie have two cabins; one forward and one aft, really roomy head, open plan central salon, L shaped galley and an unexpectedly comfortable navigation station. The chart table on the starboard side is opposite the galley; equipped with a sink, generous fridge and a gimbaled two burner stove.
The modern look below is light, bright and airy characterized by a polished gelcoat finish giving surfaces that are attractive yet functional for racing. Innovative fabric lockers are removable to minimise displacement in race mode. An attractive antislip coating is bonded to the marine ply cabin soles. All cabin doors have aluminium frames for greater durability.
