Italia 10.98, launched in the spring of 2011, is the first model made by Italia Yachts. The particular design features that characterize the nature of the shipyard, such as the classical stern shape, the clearness of the deck from lines and the elegance of the interiors, were clear since the beginning.
In fact, great attention has been payed on the exterior and interior design, to hide all the lines and to give a great comfort to the owner.
From the structural point of view, the boat has been design to have the right stiffness to withstand the natural loads. The hull has been laminated with an optimised lay-up including unidirectional and biaxial glass fibres. Different types of core have been used on the different areas of the hull and deck to assure the proper balance between weight and stiffness, for example in the forward area, where there are high slamming loads, a high density core has been used in combination with single skin laminate.
The structure is made by a matrix of longitudinal stiffeners and transversal floors laminated in a female mould with a combination of glass biaxial end carbon unidirectional fibres; when demoulded it is glued and tabbed to the hull.
The keel is made by a high modulus steel structure which is assembled with the lead torpedo bulb; furthermore the fin is surrounded with two fiberglass covers to assure the proper foil geometry.
