New Model: Sessa C35 Sports Coupe

Sessa continues to move forward always presenting newer and richer models, and this new C35 Sports Coupe is its next step in a range which becomes always more interesting in looks, fitting out and finishing. Designed as all recent Sessa's by Christian Grande this new sport cruiser represents the next step in a replacement to one of this yard’s greatest achievements and best seller that was the C35, 35 Oyster, or 34 Oyster in its earlier forms delivered to a total of over five hundred models in a ten years run. The C35 Sport Coupe follows recent demanded styles for a hard top and is inspired by the style of the acclaimed C68 flagship, or as I see it similar to the also fall 2009 introduced C38. The clever touch is surely the redistribution of the interior space offered in a clever modular style. The internal layout has been designed to allow the owner a huge freedom of choice. To live in an open space due to a large common area and a single cabin or, by using the partition, to create two equally spacious cabins, one at the bow and the other at the stern, each equipped with private access to both the kitchen and the bathroom. The aft deck also follows recent styles as seen on the 38 but in a smaller size with a single level area offering a C-shaped settee, sun lounger to port, and an outdoor kitchen behind the helm to starboard. Sessa also continues touches of extra luxury on the new medium sized C35 Sport Coupe with the option of having the Design Version which gives a galley fitted out by renowned kitchen specialist Boffi, finished with a rolled steel worktop, and ivory lacquered cabinets. Power is from a standard Volvo twin 220hp or optional 260hp.

  1. I have the feeling it's a fantastic boat for beginner, not only for Medit. sailing but even up North here, in the Solent.
    I've seen pictures of the inside, you right, it is very lively space indeed.

  2. I think they hit the needle surely for the US market. EURO medium sized sport cruisers always suffer the more spacious looking of US open layouts. With EU builders then actually struggling a bit to sell an open layout in there home continent.
    Altough as stated in the article the stopped in production Sessa C35 sold very well with most of them to Europe with a semi open layout, as did the Gobbi Atlantis 335/345 SC which was delivered in similar numbers in a 9 years production run.

  3. very interesting.
    The competition today of Hard Top 30/40ft cruisers is tough with the improved Prestige S (Jeanneau), Targa (Fairline) and plenty others...
