The principal goal has been to create a fast boat but at the same time easy to sail and to get to maximum performance. The main objective has been to find the correct balance between the different kind of use, from windward-leeward races to offshore racing or cruising, obtaining a true all-round with an optimal balance between upwind and downwind performance both in light and strong winds.

The design is the result of the work of Italia Yachts Chief Designer, the Naval Architect Matteo Polli, strong of the previous design experiences with the Italia Yachts range and the M37, one of the most successful boats in the ORCi history. Matteo Polli has been co-working with Matteo Ledri (one of the few Italian to be involved in the latest edition of the America's Cup - CapeHornEngineering) for the computational fluid dynamics analysis and with the designer Kristian Macchiut (KMD) for the style of the interiors and deck.
