Italia 13.98 Sailing Yacht for Sale in New England
Italia 13.98 / 47 Yacht Design
Italia 13.98 is a luxury cruiser yacht designed both for excellent performances during sailing, as to ensure the highest levels of comfort on board. Fast and perfectly balanced, Italia 13.98 is easy to handle with great control and safety, even by a small crew. The ergonomics and lightness of maneuvers allows precise adjustment of the sails in search of maximum speed. Large spaces in the cockpit, a comfortable flat deck, lots of storage spaces, the bright interiors finished in fine teak wood, make life aboard into a pleasant experience of sophistication and elegance.
The entire deck is free of ropes, which appear only in the proximity of the six winches. The mainsail cart runs beneath the floor of the cockpit. Skylights are not seen, but there are fiftheen of them, all flush deck. The deck is free from rigging, thanks to the innovative internal diagonal path and to the “inverted T” mainsheet. Moreover, the swimming ladder is hidden inside the removable teak covered sundeck, the outdoor table is ready to use stowed in the locker at the center of the cockpit. We could go on like this, pointing out that the furling system is below deck, halyards are collected under the hatch where the trap is hidden inside… but maybe it’s time to open the spray hood, integrated in the carter on the deck, and let your senses enjoy so much wonder.

Italia 15.98 Review
Italia 15.98 boat test – a cool performer
by Toby Hodges
The 50 oozes speed and streamlined comfort, with the long sheer and sleek deckhouse pioneered by Finland’s Nautor, which is now a sine-qua-non of this type of boat. A tapering blue line accents the 50’s sheer and it has a classic, if rounded, look, with a beamy transom that provides additional stability downwind. The powerful hull, with its slightly winged keel, is easily driven but displaces just over 31,000 pounds. This makes it a heavier boat, but not excessively so when compared with its luxury competitors.
From supercars and pointy shoes to novel pasta shapes, Italian design is lauded the world over. But it can lack practicality – there’s no room for the kids in a Ferrari, Gucci heels are terrible off-road and linguine simply translates to sauce on your shirt. This new Italia Yachts model is as true to this generalisation as it is to its patriotic name.
