Seamlessly blending the thrill of racing with the comfort of cruising.
Fuorserie or Bellissima
Italia Yachts philosophy is to keep it simple, offering the IY 11.98 in two versions, the Fuorserie (racing layout) and the Bellissima (cruising layout), with both models sharing the same high performance hull.
The IY 11.98 is the perfect model to mix and match both versions, combining deck gear and rigging required for racing with additional storage, cockpit bench seating, twin composite steering wheels and a range of luxury upgrades and appliances desirable for cruising.
