“Space optimization, high quality features, safety and technology : here some of the key concept that create the DNA of this 40 feet new little jewel, one of the first in its category to have a IPS motorization, perfect for who navigate all year round with the family on a limited oil consumption” announces Riccardo Radice – SESSA MARINE VICE PRESIDENT talking about the Sessa FLY 50 – IPS 400, the direct descendent of the FLY45.
Introducing the Sessa FLY 40 – IPS 400
Record space on the Fly-Bridge
The FLY45 made its mark with its incredible dimensions, ergonomics and spacious feel; the Sessa FLY 50 – IPS 400 follows in its footsteps to a tee. With some structural pieces carbon made in order to improve the stiffness and decrease the weight, the flying-bridge proudly boasts a large surface area, a double helm seat, a spacious front sundeck – the best place for comfort and shelter from the wind – a large L-shaped lounge and teak table for 6 guests. The kitchen unit is equipped with refrigerator, drawer, sink and grill. Never, a fly of this category, have had guaranteed so high liveableness level, including, at the same time, so much component.
A luxury galley
Installed on the lower deck under a large skylight, the galley is befitting of a large size boat. It’s studied to serve six persons and it’s strategically positioned where it will allow convenient cooking without compromising comfort and offers high quality equipment, materials and finishings in the same vein as those found on the SESSA C68: a 165 litre fridge, a Miele brand combined electric oven, storage units, a protection system for the work surface covered in wenge lacquer. In this contest, additionally, a space has been created under the stairs leading to the kitchen for a 6 kg washing machine.
Space and Dimensions
Over the years SESSA has become an expert in optimising space. The Sessa FLY 50 – IPS 400 is no exception and boat owners will never feel cramped. The highlight of the lower deck is the separate bathroom with separate shower, as found on the FLY45, for each of the two cabins.
Particular attention has been paid to the dimensions of the doors (1,90mt) and cabin height as well as storage. The storage unit under the master cabin bed is larger than the one on the bigger boots of the range and is equipped with a gas piston opening device to make access really easy.
The lounge has been intelligently designed to accommodate a convertible double sofa bed: in a few swift moves, the sofa is transformed into a comfortable bed without the bother of an extra mattress to store on the boat. Let’s not forget the incredible cockpit which acts as a genuine “veranda” thanks to the innovative “stern window”: a protective awning that can be raised or lowered, giving the impression of an extra “private area”, where eat comfortably in six persons. Moreover, note well the hydraulic platform with big dimensions – a useful aid to go down and to put sea toys into the water.
Top of the range amenities
Among all the amenities available on the FLY45, we can quote the ergonomically designed wheelhouse that allows a simple instrumentation reading. Offers a double seating, that can be electrically adjusted for height and depth, and a side window to the right, providing good ventilation for the cockpit. It is equipped with a SONY touch-screen audio and multimedia system for all your on-board entertainment.
The Sessa FLY 50 – IPS 40 it has all the design solutions held dear by the shipyard and its designer Christian Grande, making every living space more comfortable and providing that special touch of cosiness: a chromatic study for experiencing space in a sensorial and unconscious manner, play on light thanks to the large windows and the presence of mirrors, the choice of materials in line with those found on the larger models of the range… Italian design at its best.
With 7 models already designed using IPS technology, SESSA MARINE is convinced of its now recognised qualities and again uses it for the Sessa FLY 50 – IPS 400: reduced carbon emissions, reduced consumption, 50% drop in perceived noise level, exceptional manoeuvrability and safety. The Sessa FLY 50 – IPS 400 project has been developed around the new IPS 400 engine : powered by the 3,7 litre 4 cylinder common rail D4 engine, EVC-managed, turbo, compressor and 300 HP heat exchanger, the Sessa FLY 50 – IPS 400 will reach a maximum speed of around 30 knots and fuel consumption of approximately 801/h at cruise speed (25/26 knots). Made using vinylester resins forming a highly effective barrier against osmosis and multiaxial fibreglass with its fibres arranged to reinforce the laminates of the hull, this kind of bottom offers an excellent guarantee of safety. The new Sessa FLY 50 – IPS 400 has a variable V-bottom guaranteeing outstanding seaworthiness and a gentle ride even in rough seas.
