Lots of boats have terraces or doors that open from the side bulwarks to increase the amount of space in the cockpit and to provide access to water sports. But the new Sessa Key Largo 40 takes that concept to an entirely new level.
Take a look: Both sides of the cockpit drop down, creating an exceptionally large open space for a 40-foot boat. The seating is modular and can be reconfigured to fit your mood on the water: Running, sunning, or just enjoying an al fresco lunch or cocktails.
Below, the Key Largo 40 sleeps four in a super-modern interior, if you want to spend the night or a weekend on board. Meanwhile, you can get where you want to go at about 50 knots, with power provided by three 300-hp Mercury outboards.
Although the boat looks great from almost any angle, the versatile cockpit is the star of the show. It has welcoming, wide teak decks, two sofas (one is L-shaped), and an extendable table.
At the push of a button, the bulkheads (driven by electro-hydraulic power) fold down, turning the stern area of the boat into a floating salon. One sofa can be moved to join the other, creating a U-shaped lounge in the middle of the cockpit. You also can lower the coffee table and cover it with cushions to create an enormous sun lounge.
Going forward, the new Sessa has high bulwarks and an elegant handrail that envelopes the boat. The side decks lead to a large sun lounge on the foredeck.
The accommodations deck has a galley on the starboard side and a head with shower to port. Going forward, the master cabin converts to a dinette with a central folding table. The VIP cabin, sleeping two, is tucked aft under the helm station.
