Straight out of the box...

Matteo Polli’s 34-footer was an instant success story


The concept behind this new 34-footer was a client’s desire to approach new racing challenges by downsizing from his previous 37ft cruiser-racer. What lent the project additional excitement was that the request came from Giuseppe Giuffrè, owner of the M37 Low Noise I, one of the most successful boats ever under the ORCi system, with three world championship titles, two European titles plus many national titles to his credit. The project also presented itself as an interesting challenge from a designer perspective, considering that smaller yachts are commonly disadvantaged in handicap racing.

Italia Yachts, a new and rapidly growing boatyard in the fast cruiser sector, embraced the challenge, creating an appealing product around this racing machine. The market requirements imposed by the yard added even more complexity to the project, introducing many important cruising and production criteria.
