About Italia Yachts
Leaders in world championship designs
Italia Yachts are a premium performance brand, that produce a range of outstanding pedigree racer/cruiser yachts from 33 to 71 feet. In 2023, an exciting new line of power boat models will be launched, starting with the sleek and alluring 43 Veloce.
Founded in 2011 in Chioggia – Venice, Italia Yachts is a boatyard with a mission: to design and build yachts that are high-grade, fast, stylish and safe, for demanding sailors looking for a one-of-a-kind product with a timeless design.
After a rapid five year expansion strategy all elements of production are located centrally with a new facility based in Castelnuovo – Fano, on Italy’s’ east coast.
Highly Experienced & Dedicated Team
The Italia Yachts is made up of a dedicated team of professionals led by CEO Daniele De Tullio who is a passionate and experienced sailor and racer himself. Indeed many of the team have participated in years of racing at the highest levels (European, World, America’s Cup, Admiral’s Cup), and also have a deep knowledge of commercial, production, and industrial dynamics acquired over the years at leading shipyards and international businesses around the world.
The design of these unmistakable and aesthetically striking models is attributed to Maurizio Cossutti and his team since the beginning in 2011. Starting with the design of the IY 10.98 in collaboration with Italia Yachts’s team. A unique mix of sportiness and tradition wrapped in a balance that still continues across the range today.
Todays design brief is to create instantly recognisable, fast and highly ergonomic yachts with an emphasis on positioning and loading of deck gear, and equipment. The working cockpit areas are large, open and comfortable promoting ease of movement. Below decks are defined by elegance and refinement with the use of high quality materials and hand-crafted finishes ensuring a pleasant and welcoming interior.
Bellissima Vs Fuoriserie
The Philosophy at Italia Yachts is to provide the very best by way of performance and comfort. To effectively meet the needs of their customers the team at Italia in conjunction with the design team and naval architects developed two versions of the models from IY 9.98 to 14.98.
The sportier version known as Fuoriserie (customised/made to order) is truly optimised for performance. For the larger models there is a weight saving in the displacement and reduced wetted surface. The sail area is larger and in some cases additional winches and more ergonomic layout of deck gear for ease of movement for the crew. Tiller steer is standard.
The Bellissima (very beautiful) version still offers incredible performance but has added features desirable for cruising including wheel steering, fixed bow sprits, larger cockpit benches with optional teak. Below decks extra consideration is given to storage with additional cabinetry, wider range of luxurious and stylish fabric selections and wood choices.

The first model built by Italia Yachts was the IY 10.98 by the founder Franco Corazza and made its debut at the Genoa Boat Show.
