Our Philosophy…Design and Build to Sail Fast, Safely and Comfortably

Our philosophy is defined by Italia Yachts CEO Franco Corazza: “We design stylish yachts to sail fast, safely and comfortably in all weather.”

All Italia Yachts U.S.A. boats are designed for superior long distance sailing with a modern style inspired by the elegant lines of yesterday’s classic yachts.

Every design project starts with the creation of a perfectly balanced hull and sail plan so everyone sailing onboard one of our vessels feels secure and protected in all weather conditions. This design concept has made us a benchmark in the sailing world.

Since we designed and built our first model, Italia 10.98, our goal was to design sailing yachts to sail fast, safely and comfortably in all weather.

That special Italia Yachts sailing style

The design and build of every model involves the skills of the whole team – each one an experienced sailor. Every team member contributes to the design, leveraging their own unique experience and skill. This results in product development that is unmatched in terms of completeness and attention to detail with an unrivaled harmony of hull design and sail plan.


A clever design for a unique product

The stern section is drawn to limit the wetted area which makes for an easy motion forward of the mast; counteracting the usual tendency of the bow to dig deep into waves while creating a smooth and comfortable ride. The adoption of particularly well-balanced sail plan, high-efficiency keel and rudder together with a lead torpedo bulb completes the clever design.
