THE NEW ITAMA 62', THE LATEST JEWEL from Itama was presented at the Genoa Boat Show, October 2011. The new Itama 62' has a new contemporary design and proceeds in the direction that the shipyard has successfully embarked in recent years, paying particular attention to solutions that make the best use of the volumes, improving the living conditions on board while optimising space and the free experience of sailing. The new style shows in its spacious cockpitwith its wide sundeck. Similarly, with respect to its immediate predecessor, developments are significant starting with the stern, which extends outwards, to create a wide and practical space for water toys. Other novelties of this model are the hydraulic wire gangway, that is integrated into the hull which, together with the beach platform at the stern, can be lowered into the water to put the tender at sea. Finally, among the advantages, one thing that stands out is the free standing removable outdoor shower, that provides great open air comfort. Itama 62' still has all the important stylistic and technological details that characterise the new boats of the Itama range: the glass windshield that, besides providing further impetus to the profile of the boat, ensures total protection in the cockpit, the dashboard, the trimmings and wheel of which are made of carbon steel, the electric awning, that allows one to easily access the outdoors from the completely sheltered saloon, to fully enjoy life on board. The standard layout of Itama 62' has 3 cabins and 3 en-suite bathrooms as well as a comfortable dinette with kitchen. The crew cabin, which is optional, has a separate entrance at the stern so as to ensure maximum privacy on board.Along side the classic distribution of on board spaces, one can immediately notice the new aesthetic developments that make use of unusual colours, refined woods and unparalleled brightness. The meticulous stylistic research and the use of lacquered white add brightness to the interior, providing an immediate sense of freedom. This increasingly contemporary note can also be seen in the fittings chosen to furnish below deck: the predominance of white, the blue of the sofas and the wider windows, make the interiors airy and with a marine feel;, hinting the classic style of a Mediterranean boat, in which lie the origins of the brand. Below deck, the large living spaces are immediately noticeable.The Itama 62', 18.82 metres long, has an engine that takes 2 MAN V12 engines, 1360 horsepower of 1360 mhp (1000 kw), capable of reaching a maximum speed of 40 knots and a cruising speed of 37 knots. Moreover, the famous range of the 20° deep V-hull that is a distinctive feature of the Itama yachts, guarantees an unparalleled seaworthiness thanks to a higher bow and a markedly slender stern. Finally, the lamination process of the hull of Itama 62' is enhanced by the use of aramid fibres which are able to offer further stability and sturdiness to the boat at sea, even at high speeds.
