Improve-it = Sessa C68

Sessa presents a new choice to the engine propulsion of its C68 flagship.  This new engine propulsion package comes from Volvo twin 900hp engines, with the latest third generation IPS1200 propulsion.  The new option makes it the fifth Sessa to be powered by Volvo IPS pod propulsion.  The twin Volvo IPS1200 power propulsion reduces 460hp per engine to the previous MAN 1360hp set up.  According to Sessa the Volvo IPS1200 showed reduced consumption of 25% and noise levels of 40% with top speeds of 35 knots.  The engine change also marked a redefined engine room and crew cabin layout.  This now offers a more spacious engine room and a new access point onto the deck.  The crew cabin is also more spacious with a separate bathroom and extra seating that can be converted into an extra berth.  Sessa also introduced new interior fittings with a new Cocoa wood choice, Havana leather and Ivory fabrics.  A new layout without the bar is also available on the main deck.  These new choices show the flexibility of the Sessa C68 current flagship in all parts of its build from layout, engine, propulsion, and fitting choices.
