Italia 14.98 is an ambitious project indeed since it is the synthesis of the two souls of Italia Yachts: the Blue Water line with her clean and evergreen design, and the Fuoriserie one defined by her modern and appealing lines.
All the winning characteristics of the two series have been the benchmark for the development of the 14.98, creating a completely new design, that can fit completely into the family feeling of the Italia Yacht fleet.
The two versions Bellissima and Fuoriserie have been studied to have no compromise and to fully experience the pleasure of sailing. In the Bellissima version, the cockpit layout has been study to give the proper seats to the host, running all the 18 lines behind the coamings. On the contrary, in the fuoriserie version, the cockpit layout come back to the origins with six winches located in a traditional layout to get the best race ergonomic.
Like all the other Italia Yacht projects, all the lines run flush below deck, and it has been carefully studied to have the best solution for each system.
The three standalone coach roof windows become an elegant single window that shows the features of the Blue Water line keeping an eye on the Fuoriserie one.
The hull have been developed giving great attention to the volumes: in fact, thanks to a careful study of the weights, materials and layouts, we have been able to keep low the displacement, and therefore to achieve an optimal volumes distribution to have a seaworthy and pleasant boat to sail which are essential characteristics for an Italia Yacht, that it has always been a yacht made by sailors for the sailors.
