Project: Sessa C48

Sessa presents its fourth new model of the 2010 year with the C48, showing the huge effort from this Italian builder who in recent years is challenging the top crown of Med looking cruisers and yachts for its innovative and high quality products. Launching in a month time at the Genoa show the C48 is a project developed on Sessa's first IPS boat introduced in 2007 the C46. Today Sessa has a total of four IPS models. Many characteristics are the same but Sessa and Christian Grande fine tuned the lines of the hard top and super structure now looking similar to the C38 introduced last year. The C48 will also add an extended bathing platform with high and low movement which apart easy tender stowage increases length by a couple of feet, hence the designation change. Thanks to this the C48 can also handle two water toys up to 2.85 metres in the garage, and another on the bathing platform. This extension also increases space in the aft deck by 36 cm, therefore also adding more space outside. Other changes are also a bigger hard top opening section, and a redesigned helm station. Interior wise the two cabin layout with the full beam owners suite to mid ship stays, but a change in furniture woods and colors is found. This to be finished in dense walnut, and leather surfaces in brown, cream and cocoa, which will match the cream colored galley. Power for what have been very appreciated underwater lines of the C46 will be from twin Volvo IPS600 435hp units. Construction method also changes for the C48 now to be done in the cleaner and lighter infused resin.
