Strength and Lightness

With a displacement of just 4.800 kg, Italia 10.98 limits its weight to the typical values of racing boats. This ambitious achievement is the result of a careful optimization of each part of the boat structure. Hull and deck are laminated in sandwich at a controlled temperature, with differentiated density PVC cores covered with vinylester resins. The bottom frame with carbon fibre reinforcements is laminated on a female mould and then glued and laminated to the hull bottom.
