Itama SeventyFive

  • Michael Verdon

Long, lithe, and fast, the Itama SeventyFive (+39.081.5378491, www.itama-yacht.com) was the most technically advanced yacht at this year’s Miami Yacht and Brokerage Show, where Itama made its debut in the U.S. market. Nicknamed "007.5" for its sophisticated James Bond–like gadgetry and rugged good looks, the SeventyFive sports twin 1,823-hp MTU engines paired with Arneson drives and reaches a top speed of 43 knots. The SeventyFive also has stylish details in the enormous cockpit, including a carbon-fiber hardtop; a table that expands by unfolding; a flat-screen television that rises from a cabinet; and movable lounges, upholstered in waterproof fabric, that slide together to form a 12-seat, horseshoe-shaped sofa.

The cabin is in a minimalist, contemporary Italian style, replete with light wood, white walls, and leather accents. Other nicely designed details include a fully equipped galley embellished with stainless steel, and an inviting lounge seat located conveniently next to the window in the master stateroom.
