New Model: Itama 45

Itama starts its boat show season with the presentation of the new 45 model, a further evolution of the best selling one hundred plus delivered Forty and again a creation of Marco Casali.  Keeping in line with tradition the new 45 breaks new frontiers of this brand, thanks to the new aft sweeping stern, and large view windows for the cabins.  But the 45 is all about added features from the invisible hydraulic gangway, that is integrated into the hull, and bathing platform which can  lower in the water.  The Itama 45 will also feature a removable free standing shower aft, just as shown on other Ferretti Group models.  Inside the theme continues as was shown with the celebrating hull one hundred of the Forty with an interior finished in white lacquered wood, paying big homage to the classic Itama's.  The layout is similar to the Forty accept for a rotation of the shower head to 90 degrees this increasing space.  The lower deck offers a choice for a single cabin and a large twin L-shaped sofa saloon, with a more spacious galley, or the more popular two cabins version.  In both versions the owner room is to fore.  Power is from twin Cummins 480hp engines with traditional line shafts, which take the classic deep Vee hull shape up to a max speed of 33 knots.
