The history of the Italian shipyard Sessa begins in 1958, when the marine engineer Camillo Braga created the Sessa Marine company. Camillo, in addition to being an experienced engineer, was also an expert in polyesters, which allowed him to be one of the first in Europe to introduce lighter and stronger composite materials into shipbuilding. If earlier the company was engaged in the production of small boats and pleasure boats, then in the 1970s it began to significantly expand its model range, slightly increasing the dimensions of new models, which allowed the company to reach a new level.
An important role in these changes was played by Camillo's daughter, Rafaella Braga Radice. Thirty years later, the company has reached an even higher level, opening its branches in North and South America, thus locating its enterprises on three continents at once. The company also moved on to build even larger yachts, with an emphasis on comfort and spaciousness in the cabin.
The shipyard received the highest award of Italian entrepreneurs - Cavaliere Lavoro, and also quite often receives awards and titles of the best ships of the year at various yacht exhibitions and international festivals. As well as more than 80 years ago, the company is a family business in which the third generation of Braga Radice is already involved.
Today the shipyard Sessa creates 1000 hulls per year, and the total amount of all ships produced is more than 20,000. The company also owns its own marine research center and is actively investing large sums in this area.
The lineup of the enterprise consists of three series of closed or semi-closed yachts with a hardtop and hull length from 11 to 23 meters:
In the production of yachts, according to the manufacturer itself, special attention is paid to the quality of the vessels, as well as to the strength characteristics of the hull. The shipyard actively monitors the requirements of the legislation of the importing countries and carefully selects dealers. Recently, the company has been focusing on the production of large-sized vessels with premium interior decoration and specific design, inviting a large number of new designers and design studios for cooperation. This fit makes the major yacht publications talk more about the shipyard, thereby making its products more recognizable.
The customer can choose from several configurations offered by the shipyard, change a large number of parameters in an already finished yacht, or create his own completely unique vessel on the company's website.
