Italia 15.98 Yacht Sailing, seriously because sailing is always a serious matter
Sailing is one of the oldest human activities existing; the whole development of our civilization is related to sailing. The greatest epic poems tell of storms and gods related to the sea and the wind. When the man stopped sailing for living, he started to do it for pleasure. But the rules, nature, emotions, are always the same. And the navigation requires the same principles: respect for the elements, safety, comfort. Because sailing, even for pleasure, is always a serious matter.

Italia 15.98 Yacht Review
Italia 15.98 boat test – a cool performer
By Toby Hodges
With styling as cool as Italian gelato, the Italia 15.98 was one of the stand-out yachts in trials for the European Yacht of the Year. But does she perform? Toby Hodges finds out.
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.
