The deck layout of the IY 11.98 Bellissima is a study in clean, elegant design. From the bow to the stern, every element has been carefully considered to be both practical for sailing and comfortable for living onboard.

The cockpit seating benches are easily removed to create more space for racing, allowing you to fully unleash the boat’s impressive performance. But when it’s time to switch into cruising mode, the Bellissima has you covered with a range of optional extras.

These include a removable cockpit table for alfresco dining, a foldable stern gangplank for easy access to the water, a dolphin striker with an integrated anchor on roller, and a furling forestay with a built-in drum. These features add convenience and comfort to your sailing experience, making it easier than ever to enjoy life on the water.

But the IY 11.98 Bellissima isn’t just designed for comfort and convenience. The setup has been conceived for double-handed sailing, making safety and performance a top priority. Whether you’re racing or cruising, you can be confident in the boat’s handling and stability.
