Itama, a brand of the Ferretti Group, known worldwide for its unique white and blue hull, will participate in the 50th Barcelona Boat Show 2011 together with Nautica Vermell, the exclusive distributor for Spain.
At the 50th Barcelona Boat Show which runs from the 5 to 13 November, at Port Vell, it will be possible to visit Itama 45’ motor yacht, a contemporary evolution of the famous Itama Forty and its unforgettable predecessor Itama 38’, the model that has made the history of the brand together with Itama Fifty Five.
The Itama 45’ yacht ws designed by architect Marco Casali in close collaboration with AYT and the team of architects and designers of Centro Stile Ferrettigroup, Itama 45’ is a 13 metre long day-cruiser capable of high performance, reaching a top speed of 33.5 knots.
Detailed restyling has made it possible to introduce a serious of innovations, without altering the Itama brand style. Among the novelties, the telescopic retractable gangway, integrated in the hull and the swimming platform at the stern, which can be lowered into the water to launch the tender, stand out. An absolute novelty is also the new stern, where the mirror inclination has been modified in order to obtain new dynamic exterior lines without sacrificing the former formal values. Moreover, space has been made for a wide and practical locker that can be used for water toys and a functional free-hand shower.
Stylistic changes have also been made to the layout and the interior of the Itama 45’ motor yacht, where white is distinctly predominant – painted wood, teak floors and blinds – contrasting with the blue colour of the bridge, giving greater brightness and airiness to the rooms below deck, thanks to the stylistic evolution of the now wider windows.
The V-shaped 22 deep hull remains popular, thanks to thrust of the two Cummins engines of 480 hp each, which make Itama 45’ a powerful and reliable open, ensuring unparallel sea-worthiness, to enjoy the sportive spirit that is characteristic to the brand.
Giuseppe Mazza, Brand Manager of Itama declares: “Having been to Cannes and Genoa, Itama could not miss being at the Barcelona Boat Show with its latest novelty: Itama 45’.
The Catalan event is an important opportunity for the brand that is historical linked to the Mediterranean as Itama, and that considers the Spanish coast and islands as a catchment area that is ideal for day-cruisers with the characteristics of our models.”
The open Itama, with the characteristics of white-blue hulls distinguishing the brand’s unique style, has always been a symbol of timeless elegance and class for those who would like to have an unobstructed relation with the sea and unique sailing experiences.
