Boat location: Wanssum / The Netherlands
This is your unique opportunity to purchase one of the few C46’s in Northern waters that is also ready to go with full engine, drive, genset and air conditioning service. This Sessa comes with newly installed teak decks in 2019, a full polish, new antifouling and many more refitted features and besides that she is also one of the very rare versions with the IPS drives in combination with a powerful bow thruster.
This Sessa C46 has only 803 hours since a complete rebuilt of her twin white Volvo IPS 600 engines and comes with 2019 installed factory new IPS drives that are still under Volvo warranty! pictures on our website grandyachts.eu and in high resolution upon request.
This Sessa C46 comes also with a full Pre Delivery Inspection report on which we have not only reported all equipment on board and their functions, but also oil pressures, gearbox pressures, speeds, temperatures at the full rpm range from idle to top speed.

Engines, gen-set, gearbox and controls:
With a simple twist of the IPS joystick, you're ready to blend the piña colada or pop the champagne bottles cork. And the Sessa C46 is just as comfortable with skinny water since she draws just 96 centimetres
Sessa has also done their homework: All buyers want products they recognize, so Sessa has equipped the C46 with such names as Volvo, Kohler, MarineAir, Isotherm, and Raymarine. And, of course, the 46 meets all ABYC and NMMA standards.
From a distance, the C46 is a very beautiful hardtop express cruiser with a steeply raked windscreen, huge sun pads fore and aft, and the swoopy lines expected from top of the notch Italian designers.
But it was in the details that the Sessa stands apart from a fairly crowded field of near fifty-footers. Spend the time to explore a C46 and you'll come away impressed by the amount of thought that designer Christian Grande has put into this C46. Take the after sun pad, for example. Cantilevered over the teak swim platform, it is large enough to stretch out in several directions, yet is really a clever way of concealing a large garage underneath. The sun pad and transom lift hydraulically to reveal the cradles for a 275cm RIB with outboard.
An electric hatch opens to reveal the engine room. It's very spacious because the twin 435-horsepower Volvo Penta diesels matched to IPS 600 pod drives require very little space, so there's still plenty of access. With the hatch open, you can walk around the front of the mains. This C46 has a 6.5 kW Mase genset to port. The polyurethane fuel tank spans the forward bulkhead and, because it's semi-transparent, acts as its own sight gauge for the fuel level.
As you board the transom platform, you'll immediately notice that there are stainless grabrails everywhere. Teak steps into the cockpit are well-spaced and lead to the side decks as well. There are warping winches on each stern quarter that make mooring as light as pushing a button, and the cockpit door folds flush when not in use.
The cockpit is marked by several clever touches, including a lovely teak table that swivels and unfolds from cocktail size to dining for six. And the oversized chaise longue opposite the helm has a concealed flatscreen TV in the backrest that electrically pops up with the touch of a button.
The starboard side of the cockpit has an L-shaped outdoor galley. Not one of those half-hearted wet bars, it has tempered-glass counters, two-burner ceramic cooktop, stainless steel sink, undercounter fridge and freezer, ice maker, and stylish faucet.
Just forward is the helm. The leather trimmed dash has space for both analogue gauges and the Raymarine monitor, with clearly labelled touchpads for the electrics. Forward of the helm we have installed anti-glare alcantara. The leather-rimmed wheel is fully adjustable. The IPS joystick is right where you want it to be, and there are conventional Volvo throttle/ shifters as well.
Below, the C46 is casual, combining wall coverings in earth-toned textures with natural woods and high-styled lacquered cabinetry in contrasting whites. The starboard side of the salon had a white leather settee with another unfolding table, and a pair of hockers nested around the table pedestal.
To port is a fully loaded galley with a stainless steel countertop, and all the amenities of the cockpit galley, plus a microwave oven and an enlarged four zone Ceran cooktop.
The master suite aft is surprising, because that raised chaise longue in the cockpit translates to full headroom. There's also a spacious en suite bathroom with walk-in shower that sports a rain head and a conventional spigot. The headroom is reduced over the double berth but you have wonderful views through three oversized windows on each side when leaning back against the padded headboard. There is a full-height hanging locker near the solid entry door, a second locker with drawers, and leather-topped nightstands with drawers.
The VIP has a clever arrangement that allows for the separate V-berths to be scissored together to create a double.
The VIP head doubles as the day-head, with a private door into the forward cabin and a second into the salon.
The Sessa C46 is very well behaved, partly because Volvo Penta helped design the hull to take full advantage of its IPS drive system. Deadrise is 15 degrees, which is flat enough for a good turn of speed, yet deep enough to slice the seas without pounding on full-speed runs.
The real story of the C46, however, is the IPS handling, which turns the toughest docking situation into child's play. With a push on the joystick, you can spin the boat and slide it sideways into a slot barely longer than the yacht. It's actually fun.
