Distinction & Grace
Italmas is a world-class cruising design tuned and tailored for her owner to enjoy sailing the Great Lakes. She combines distinction with grace resulting in a traditional take from Stephens Waring Yacht Design that squarely pays homage to yachts of the 40’s and 50’s.
World-class workmanship by Van Dam created a Great Lakes cruising sloop unlike any other. The yacht exudes “classic” — the hull seemingly born from restrained overhangs and subtle tumblehome, an elliptical transom and a traditional bulwark detail.
The most notable feature in the sail plan is the custom designed wooden spar equipped with a modern carbon fiber roller furling boom. The simple suit of sails minimizes work in sail handling, yet is plenty ample for the easily driven performance underbody.
Construction is to Van Dam’s high and uncompromising standards with classic and elegant joinery on display throughout the yacht. Italmas is a showcase for the attention to detail that places a Van Dam in a league of its own.
