After 11 days and 18 hours of sailing and 2234 miles in the Atlantic, Nessun Dorma, Andrea Neri’s Italia Yachts 15.98, crossed the finish line of the ARC+ 2023 in Granada first overall. A nice confirmation after winning the first stage from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria to Mindelo, about 865 miles, last Nov. 14. Meanwhile, at the ARC classic, another Italian boat, Marco Rodolfi’s Swan 90 (27.71 m) Berenice Cube, is proceeding briskly to Saint Lucia.

This Atlantic crossing from Cape Verde to Grenada was a crazy adventure that lasted 2234 miles. Winning with an Italian crew is an Italian boat has a special flavor. We encountered all conditions in the nearly 12 days of sailing and had no damage other than small things due to wear and tear of materials. I am sure that the whole team will forever carry in their hearts this fantastic experience that I recommend to many boat owners, fellow professionals or just amateur sailors” is the comment of an Enrico Zennaro still immersed in the festivities aboard Nessun Dorma.

Blue Water according to Italia Yachts

Nessun Dorma’s is the first ocean victory for the Italia Yachts shipyard as well, with a boat, now out of production, that nonetheless represents the essence of the blue water cruising range. Launched in 2014, Italia Yachts 15.98 is a project by Matteo Polli, in terms of naval architecture (hull lines and design coordination), and Studio Cossutti, for the structural part. Certainly not just any names for a hull made for real sailors.

Simply a beautiful boat, with lines that are still current: from our test almost 10 years ago,“a balance of round lines and step over waves that becomes an aesthetic issue.”
