Sessa Marine launches its new hardtop C32 at the Paris Boat Show

Italian boatbuilder Sessa Marine will launch its new entry-level cruiser, the C32, at the Paris Boat Show tomorrow.

Following in the wake of the C35 and the C38, the new 32ft hardtop comes with a few nifty design features that mark it out from the crowd.

Firstly, the soft canvas roof folds back concertina-style to open up the cockpit and the aft deck to the elements, while the GRP sides act as windbreaker and sun-visor.

The C32 also boasts a mid-ship master cabin, separated from the en-suite bathroom by a clever storage system, and the saloon can be converted to provide two extra berths.

Available with either twin diesel Volvo Penta D3s with joystick control or the GXi 5.7 petrol engine, the C32 is priced at around £170,000.

Look out for the full test on the Sessa C35 sports coupe, coming soon in Motor Boats Monthly magazine.
