1989 Etap 30 - £29,950 (Tax Paid)

Etap 30 1989

The Etap 30 is regarded as the best yacht Etap produced, she was far ahead of her time in many respects including her easily-driven hull which was designed by Jac de Ridder, it was far and away ahead of most other 30ft cruisers when she was first launched in 1983,she handles delightfully on all points of sail and is still a fairly fast cruiser for her length.

Down below she has five sea-berths, including a quarterberth, and a heads compartment amidships. The galley is spacious and useable.

This Etap 30 is on her berth here in Poole and is ready for viewing, for any further information or to arrange a viewing please contact Clipper Marine Poole on 01202 916424 or email
