In 2017, the Italia 9.98 Bellissima - almost identical in construction and performance to the award winning 9.98 Fuoriserie was launched. Its purpose was to offer a more comfortable yacht, capable of enjoying lengthier passages in a cruising role, yet was also designed to excel at racing. This is the perfect yacht for those that enjoy club racing and taking part in regattas such as the Hamilton Island Race Week. It is a fast and fun yacht that can be enjoyed out on a shorthanded day sail or for overnight entertaining. She is also designed to bring the best out of an experienced crew and reward their efforts when it matters most.
