BY Erik Haaland - 0 COMMENTS

The Italia 14.98 is a luxury sailing yacht that combines sophisticated design, Italian influence, and exceptional sailing abilities. Italia Yachts created the yacht to combine style and function in a yacht that would appeal to demanding sailors who appreciate high-quality design and finishes. The yacht is designed for cruises and regattas, making it a versatile choice for those who want the best of both worlds.

The IY 14.98 is designed for those who want to experience a comfortable and opulent environment on board. Its staterooms are designed with extra attention to detail, including high-quality materials and upholstery, and feature commodious amenities like a wine cellar and large wardrobes. The lighting on board is warm, diffused, and never intrusive, creating a relaxing and inviting atmosphere.


The yacht's exterior is sporty and sleek, focusing on large outdoor spaces for families and friends. The yacht's aerodynamic design is combined with the style and design of Made in Italy, resulting in a yacht with a sporty DNA that is perfect for cruising. The yacht features a straight stern with a folding transom that transforms into a comfortable beach, making it easy to access the water. All the maneuvers on the yacht can be easily adjusted from the cockpit, which is free from lines and equipment, thanks to the integrated passages in the deck cover. The Bellissima version of the yacht even offers a self-tacking jib track built into the deck, allowing quick tacking with just the helmsman's command.

The interior of the IY 14.98 is optimized for those who want a sporty and comfortable sailing experience. The interior layout includes three versions with two or three bathrooms and ample stowage space, making it a great choice for cruising with family and friends. The design is clean, modern, and linear and plays with the luminosity of reflective surfaces, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere in a different way.

In terms of performance, the Italia 14.98 is a fast and sexy-looking racer-cruiser designed for speed and style. The yacht is lighter for its length than the competition, with a D/L of 124.8 and an L/B of 3.36. The yacht has a noticeably lower freeboard, giving the impression that it is longer, and a chineless hull with a softer sectional shape aft than the competition, making it faster in light air. The yacht has a standard draft of 8 feet 3 inches but offers four keel options.

In conclusion, the Italia 14.98 is a yacht that offers the best of both worlds, combining luxurious styling, Italian influence, and exceptional sailing abilities in a package that is sure to appeal to demanding sailors who want the best of everything. Whether you're cruising with family and friends or racing in a regatta, the IY 14.98 is a yacht that will exceed your expectations in every way.
