New Model: Sessa C44

Despite the slow down in the World and European economies Sessa has been relentless in the last few years presenting new models, at an impressive rate.  The C44 is in real terms a further development of the fall 2008 presented C43 with the real difference coming to stern, which now features an up and down hydraulic moving bathing platform.  As said in the Sessa press release the C44 will be produced along the C43, at least for now. The C44 will offer the two cockpit layouts as featured on the C43 of C-shaped settee with sunpad and underneath garage, or the larger more socializing E-shaped layout.  The E-shaped settee layout which was optional on the C43 becomes the standard plan of the C44.  In the E-shape plan both settees transform to two sun pads or dine twelve people with tables up in extreme comfort. Unlike the C43 with the other plan of sun pad garage the C44 gives the possibility to carry two private water toys, one on the platform and another in the garage.  Another difference of the C44 is also the propulsion set up with Sessa declaring on the web site that the C44 will only be available with IPS pods, and I think the main reason behind this is the hydraulic moving bathing platform.
