Italia Yachts philosophy: design to sail

Our philosophy is defined by CEO Franco Corazza: “We design stylish yachts to sail fast, safely and comfortably in all weather”. Italia Yachts are designed for long distance sailing in 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; sailing an Italia Yacht everyone onboard feels secure and protected in all weather conditions. This design concept has made us a benchmark in the sailing world: in an Italia yacht you will rediscover the true pleasure of sailing.

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.

Franco Corozza - Italia Yachts

That special Italia 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 bringing their own experience and skill to bear. This brings product development to an unmatched level of completeness resulting in an unrivalled harmony of hull design and sail plan.

A clever design for a unique product

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