The IY 12.98, a brand new model by Italia Yachts set to make its world debut at the 62nd Genoa International Boat Show, bears the signature of designer Maurizio Cossutti. A new model that concludes a 2022 season that has so far seen Italia Yachts bring home two world titles with five boats in the top five positions of the ORC world ranking.
14.30 metres in length, 3.95 meters in width and 115 square meters of sail area are the main pieces of information we have so far regarding the IY 12.98, the “delicate” lines of which were chosen by the Cossutti Yacht Design studio to ensure perfect movement through waves. The interiors, developed by the Italia Yachts Design Team in partnership with Arbore & Partners, stand out for their pursuit of lightness and comfort.
Two examples are the saloon furnished with real sofas, featuring high and enveloping sides, reminiscent of the comfort of sitting at home, and the bed with a backrest in the owner’s cabin. Noteworthy is the deck design which is clear of obstacles thanks to the rigging below deck and the flush hatches.
