Itama 75' - A Myth Evolution
Itama 75’ is the largest craft in the Itama fleet, a brand of the Ferretti Group, known worldwide for the unique style of its white-blue hulls. Designed by architect Marco Casali in cooperation with Ferretti Group Engineering Department, this boat, which is more than 23 metres long, it’s perfect for the ship owner who wants to experience the sea without filters.
The first development that has been made with regard to previous models is the boat’s exterior design that has been deliberately perfected to enhance the craft’s aura of power. High bows, a distinctively curved profile and a sleek structure thanks to its slim central carbon roof are the features that distinguish this dynamic open yacht and highlight its sporting spirit.
On going onboard, on the other hand, the first thing that strikes you about this motor-yacht is the high quality of its living areas and the revolutionary use of space. The innovative approach that has been adopted here has created an even greater layout differentiation and a higher level of functionality, while at the same time maintaining the high standard of finishing that these craft are famous for. The end result? Stunning appeal and exclusive features.
If we begin by focusing on technology and materials, this craft is fitted with a very special carbon fibre and glass windshield and “avantop”. The new, autoclave-moulded carbon and glass windshield is no less than 10.70 metres long at the sides and 4.50 metres wide. The entire windshield is therefore almost 26 metres long, a highly innovative feature in terms of both its unique golf club-shaped window section and its spacious front opening that slides away with a pantograph movement to join the cockpit to the sundeck in the bows via an original central walkway.
This innovation makes accessing the whole below decks area both safer and more convenient. The use of carbon fibre also saves 60% of the weight of a steel windshield of this size. A breakthrough adopted to improve performance in terms of both speed and fuel consumption; two features that are fundamental for a craft with such a sporting character.
A brilliant combination of design, weight distribution and engineering enables the “avantop” to be both stylish and highly efficient, and the central uprights have been deliberately designed to improve visibility. Great care has also been taken over the style of the retractable bimini top that covers the dinette. This opens by stowing away the fabric in a special carbon housing that closes automatically. Both the windshield and the “avantop” are part of the incredible design project that has succeeded in restyling the typical 70s corners and contours of these parts of the boat.
A TRULY LUXURIOUS COCKPIT
The cockpit stands out for both its size and features. Measuring almost 60 square metres, the area is divided into 4 zones that include a second dinette decorated with the same fabric as the large horseshoe-shaped sofa in the centre of the cockpit. The white fibreglass helm console conceals seating that is also part of this second dinette. The aim of the design here has been to make these areas as private and as comfortable as possible by using original solutions such as LED and optic fibre lighting.
The spacious, almost full beam, stern sundeck with double side walkways is located over the hangar that comfortably houses the craft’s tender or jet ski as well as a small crane to launch them with. It also features two comfortable sofas upholstered in a special waterproof fabric that can slide together to form a large horseshoe shape that can sit up to 12 people around a polished teak table. In general, all the furnishings have glass fibre frameworks with teak tops and doors.
AN EXTREMELY VERSATILE LAYOUT
The craft’s standard layout includes 3 cabins (a Master Cabin, a full beam VIP cabin and a guest cabin with side-by-side twin beds) and 3 bathrooms, as well as a twin crew cabin with its own bathroom. In this initial layout the dinette is remarkably spacious and owners can even choose to include a bar and a 40-inch TV, two ideal features for enhancing still further the craft’s propensity for socializing.
