The yacht range renewal program at Sessa Marine continues and following the presentation of the C54 for the first time at the Cannes Salon de la Plaisance in September, they are ready to launch their 48 foot yacht at the Genoa Boat show. A unique, modern Mediterranean-inspired yacht and the perfect 2010 symbol for their boat yard.
Being the first yacht on the market in 2007 with the IPS propulsion system, the C46 was instantly recognized for her Italian Spirit characterized by her elegance and onboard comfort, design a sportiness. Sessa Marine has now refreshed this model for 2010, already awarded “Boat of the Year” at the London boat show in 2008, to give it a modern touch and adding even more comfort.
The C48 will most likely receive a warm welcome from our C46 fans, because of the similarities between the two yachts. The differences lay only in the design of the hull and superstructure that are in line with Sessa’s new spirit, along with a larger cockpit and numerous technical upgrades.
“Our clients’ needs and ideas are what guide our decisions. We create for them and that is what makes our yachts so enjoyable and always up to date.”, says Riccardo Radice – the new Vice President for Sessa Marine. “A yacht is a place where passions, cultures and different life-styles come alive, and it is our job to interpret them to their best”. Refreshing a hit such as the C46 by presenting a 48 version is the perfect answer, both from an ergonomic as well as stylistic point of view, to an owner’s needs today. This only goes to show, once again, our creative force”.
With its superstructure and hull inspired by the C68 and as with the entire range, the C48 is an evolution of the C46’s profile making her softer, more attractive and feminine, yet without losing her sporting look. Absolutely contemporary, the C48 is very “charming” with her gloss black hull to match the windows. With the extension of the transom, we were able to expand the cockpit by 35 cm. This allowed more room for a larger and more comfortable outdoor space. The C48’s cockpit is also brighter because of an even larger, electrically operated hard top positioned over the starboard helm and allowing for perfect air circulation. And finally, the driver’s seat. It has been redesigned having been inspired by the auto industry and treasured by our designer Christian Grande. The result? A modern yacht, which expresses a unique sports elegance.
The interior styling has been done following the leading trends for today’s yachts. The furniture in dense walnut, leather surfaces in brown, cream and cocoa together with a cream coloured kitchen all combine to make this yacht exceptional bright that invite one to do more than just travel, but to do so in a typical Mediterranean Style.
The large hydraulically operated beach platform at the stern allows not only for simply launching of the onboard toys or tender, but also makes for easy access to the water to enjoy a swim. The garage has space for up to a 2.85 meter tender, suitable for the C48 to carry a jet-ski. Our technological improvements are many; Fuel and water tanks in reinforced polyethylene to reduce corrosion, upgrading of the hydraulic and electrical systems for improved performance, the use of infusion that maintain the same mechanical properties as before though reduce the weight of the finished product. The C48 is powered by twin IPS 600 systems (each with a 435 HP D6 engine).
Sessa Marine continue to challenge the Sports Cruiser market through design and innovation and its sure to make waves in this very competitive market sector.
