Italia 11.98 Performance-cruiser

This past winter, SAIL principal editor, Adam Cort, check out the new Italia Yachts’ new 11.98 performance-cruiser at the boot Dusseldorf show in German, and says he can attest to the fact it’s a boat more than worthy of the attention of North American sailors. Available in either a “Sport” or more cruiser-friendly “Bellisima,” the boat is expressly designed to not go fast, but appeal to wide range of sailors.
