A sporty character, pared-down lines and seafaring style make up the true DNA of Itama. In 2020 there was a renewal of the range to perfect and modernise various functional design and technology features, helping maintain Itama’s typically evergreen character.
Designed in collaboration with Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee (led by engineer Piero Ferrari, the Group Engineering Department and architect Marco Casali), the Itama range is a combination of power and elegance, with its unmistakable Mediterranean spirit and unique streamlined and sporty lines.
The real novelty in the new range is the form of a central glass door incorporated in the windscreen that makes access to the bow area on the main deck safer and more practical. The sliding hatch acts as a passageway, which is why it not only has steps built into it but also is made of a special aluminium honeycomb that is both strong and lightweight. This solution, which increases not only the comfort but also the safety of Itama yachts, will be added to traditional forward access along the side walkways. On Itama 45S and 62S, the opening mechanism for the central door is manual, while on Itama 75 it is electric.
The Itama 45S is heir to one of the shipyard’s most successful models. It shares numerous aesthetic elements with its predecessor, including the concealed hydraulic gangway integrated into the hull and the stern swimming platform, which can be lowered into the water to launch and land the tender.
This model is designed to meet the needs of each individual owner.
The predominant colour in the interiors is white lacquered wood and teak Venetian blinds; in contrast with the blue bridge, when combined with the big windows, this gives the space a very bright and airy feel. The boat can be ordered with one or two guest cabins in addition to the master stateroom in the bow.
Itama 45S can reach a top speed of 34 knots.
Itama 62S focuses on solutions that make the most of her effective volume, onboard liveability, space optimisation and the experience of freedom during navigation. This mood can be seen starting from the large cockpit, which, in addition to the spacious sunbathing area, contains a living and dining area with an extendable table and a comfortable sofa facing the bar unit on the left.
Twin MAN V12 1400 mhp engines deliver a top speed of 40 knots and a cruising speed of 37 knots.
Itama 75 offers a deeply rich and innovative experience. The main deck is divided into four areas. It has a sunpad in the bow over the hangar for the tender or jet ski; a living area with big sofas upholstered with waterproof fabric that slide together in the shape of the letter C and can accommodate up to twelve people around a teak table; and the helm station is in the centre, with the copilot’s chair on the left and a big chaise longue under the windscreen so that you can cruise in total relaxation from the most comfortable position on the boat.
Below deck, the interiors are decorated in warm, welcoming colours and the standard layout features three cabins: the full beam master stateroom, a VIP cabin in the bow and a guest cabin with twin beds on the left. The roomy dinette can also be fitted with a bar. The boat is also available with a four-cabin layout, all with en suite bathrooms.
Itama 75 is equipped with twin 1823 hp MTU engines with ZF Sea Rex 140 propulsion, driving it to a top speed of up to 42 knots and a comfortable cruising speed of 37 knots.
