One of these is the new Italia Yachts 12.98 Performance presented as a world premiere in Cannes. Here is our tour on board and a preview of the boat while waiting to try it out.

Italia Yachts 12.98 – Bellissima or Fuoriserie?
Combining the will of a boat with sporting ambitions (Fuoriserie version), while still making it usable for cruising (Bellissima version) and with a stylish and trendy interior design, as known, is one of the most difficult exercises in the nautical world, but Italia Yachts in its history has already shown that it knows how to overcome similar challenges, having made the authentic compromise between the two worlds its winning weapon and the philosophy of the shipyard. The choice of the two versions Bellissima and Fuorisere, different in sail plan, number and positioning of winches on the deck, as well as in the interior, is the key with which the shipyard interprets the compromise between the world of racing and that of luxury cruising.
