'Rosa Del Mare' is hull #21 of the renowned Italia Yachts 11.98. While her hull was laid in December 2021 she was not completed until 2022 and was shipped to the US and delivered in June of that year.

Launched in 2019, the IY11.98 immediately took the world by storm by winning the Barca dell'anno (Boat of the Year) in Italy. In the same year it won the ORC World Championship, and this was followed again by taking 2nd place in 2021 and 1st place in 2022 and 2023. In 2020 the IY11.98 was nominated for the European Yacht of the Year.

The Italia Yachts brand is known for its stunningly good looks and amazing performances, all while providing a comfortable and safe platform. The brain child of designer Matteo Polli and the IY Design Team, the IY11.98 was designed to be a boat of two souls. Rather than being a traditional racer/cruiser, the IY11.98 can be set up for either configuration, or a combination of both. Allowing owners to cruise and compete to their liking.

'Rose Del Mare' was setup with the goal of winning the Chicago-Mackinac Race. Which she did by taking 1st place in Section 6 in 2022 and winning the Theodore M Dunlap trophy less than 60 days after delivery from Italy. In 2023 they took 2nd place in the Tripp Cup and 1st place in the Queens Cup.

The sellers also like to cruise, so this particular IY11.98 was equipped with several features to allow for a comfortable weekend on the water. Air conditioning with reverse cycle heat, diesel heater, inverter, refrigeration, and more.

You will find that 'Rosa Del Mare' is the top outfitted IY11.98 built to date and one that can be competitively raced as well as cruised. During the past winter she was stored in a heated building. With her light use on the Great Lakes and being just over a year after delivery this is a special opportunity to get into a world champion IY11.98 at a significant discount and the wait time for a new build.

With the 2024 ORC World Championship in Newport, RI this is a great chance to jump into a turn-key program with a proven winning track record.
