A UNIQUE CHOICE - ETAP Owners Association
A UNIQUE CHOICE
UNSINKABLE SAILING PLEASURE
Dear sailing enthusiasts,
We are pleased to introduce you to the
entire range of our unsinkable ETAP
First of all, we wish to announce the
successful launch of our new flagship,
the ETAP 46DS. For the interior of this
unique deck saloon yacht, we have
called upon the services of the worldrenowned designers Stile Bertone, who
have created a uniquely stylish decor.
The ETAP 46DS was chosen by a
specialist European jury as “European
Yacht of the Year” for its innovation,
and in the United Kingdom it won IPC
Media’s award for the category
“Sailboat over 40 ft”.
We then introduce the première of the
ETAP 28s: this new yacht boasts high
performance, sleek lines and stylish
accommodation, thanks to our collaboration with Stile Bertone and Von Ahlen
The ETAP 37s “Imbuya” special series
is also enjoying great success, and is
remarkable for its use of new types of
wood. The combination of Corian work
surfaces and a beautiful Alcantara
cushion set makes this special version a
unique and exclusive yacht.
We invite you to take a look by visiting
www.etapyachting.com. You will enjoy
a preview of the newest developments
at ETAP Yachting, and can find complete technical information, a splendid
photo gallery, etc.
Would you like to inspect the new
designs for yourself? If so, we are
delighted to invite you to one of the
international boat shows or to ETAP’s
distributors. But first take your time to
browse through our brochure, and
We wish you happy reading and look
forward to seeing you soon.

THE SAFEST YACHTS IN THE WORLD…
Quality control – certification
When ETAP Yachting began developing and producing sailing yachts in 1970, our
aim was to build the safest sailing yachts in the world. Besides selecting superb
materials and paying close attention to ergonomics, we felt it imperative that
ETAP yachts should be made unsinkable. The crews who entrusted themselves to
our yachts had to be sure of a safe voyage, even if their boat took in water.
How can we guarantee that your ETAP is truly unsinkable?
• We use computer simulations during the design phase
to calculate every last detail of your boat, leading to
above-standard stability and buoyancy.
• We perform practical tests to check that everything is
functioning as planned. We regularly carry out our tests
in the presence of boating press representatives to
prove that our boats are unsinkable.
• We occasionally receive reports on an ETAP boat
that has sustained heavy damage but remained afloat
and manoeuvrable thanks to the ETAP ship-in-ship
ETAP Yachting decided on a
unique, technically refined
construction method known
as the ETAP ship-in-ship
construction. In the ETAP
the deck and hull are doubleskinned. The hollow space
between the two decks and
two hulls is filled with closedcell polyurethane foam. The
closed cell structure is almost
entirely non-absorbent and
gives the boat sufficient
buoyancy. Even if your ETAP

and hull flooded to the maximum depth
yacht does spring a leak, it
will remain stable and afloat,
with enough freeboard for
you and your crew. Thanks to our many years of experience, we can now inject
most of the foam into zones that remain unused even in single-mould boats,
minimising any loss of space.
Over the years, we have continued to refine the ETAP
ship-in-ship principle, which now offers you a host of
• Thanks to the unsinkability guarantee, you know that
your ETAP boat will stay afloat. You will never need to
abandon ship; you can calmly tackle any technical
problems and sail safely to the nearest port.
• The double-mould construction method also offers
highly efficient thermal and acoustic insulation. ETAP
boats are practically condensation-free, giving your
crew and equipment a much more pleasant environment
than on other boats.
• The double-skinned deck and hull mean a more rigid,
dimensionally stable structure.
of foam, ETAP 24i
The inner deck and inner hull allow us to give our yachts a
unique quality of finish: no need to use water-proof materials
or plastic in the decor; instead, the interior is made of sound
structural polyester, a low-maintenance, durable and aesthetically pleasing material with long-lasting value.
Thanks to the confidence of so many thousands of customers who prefer ETAP’s unique construction technology,
our company can call itself the world leader in unsinkable
yachts. That’s something to be proud of, and we’d like to
thank all our customers and staff!
A THOROUGHBRED ETAP
A PERFECT SYMPHONY OF
COMFORT AND SAFETY
The ETAP 21i has a surprisingly long water line
(6.10 metres) and a totally new hull designed by
Mortain and Mavrikios in cooperation with ETAP.
With a displacement of 1,180 kg (including a 300 kg
keel), dual rudder controls and a full 24 m2 of sail
area, the ETAP 21i has great appeal for competitive
sailors. The ETAP 21i is a superb family sailing yacht
too: its superbly designed internal layout offers
sleeping accommodation for 4 people, a roomy
main cabin, a functional corner galley and ample
stowage space. The ETAP 21i is easy to tow and
offers effortless launching straight from the trailer
when fitted with the ETAP tandem keel.
Right from its launch, the ETAP 24i was a trendsetter,
with its safe, deep cockpit, the flowing lines of its cabin
sofas, the recessed foredeck hatch and much more. In
short, the perfect harmony of this yacht is sure to
beguile you. But that’s only for starters: the new hull
design, which can be combined with different keel
options, carries a promise of excellent speed and safe
handling characteristics. All sailing manoeuvres can be
carried out from the shelter of the well-protected
cockpit. Awaiting you below deck is a comfortable,
practically condensation-free cabin with beautiful pear
laminate, a well-equipped galley unit and a separate
toilet compartment with wet stowage facilities. At your
option, your ETAP 24i can be equipped with an inboard
diesel engine with saildrive or with an outboard motor.
The ETAP 24i is easily trailered and ideally suited to
sailing cruises in inland and coastal waters.

and we develop new high-tech products
designed to bring you safety, comfort

they look more assured and relaxed
than other crews. They know that,
come what may, their ETAP will carry
them safely into harbour. That’s the

The new ETAP 32s is the ideal choice for many
discerning sailing enthusiasts. Its tall 190 cm
headroom at the companionway and the panoramic
window combine to give this yacht a spacious, airy
interior. A well-protected cockpit and the legendary
ETAP unsinkability provide a reassuringly high
degree of safety, while the choice of different sail
areas and keel options enable you to tailor your
ETAP 32s precisely to your personal sailing preferences. An ideal yacht for family cruising, the
ETAP 32s is also perfect for a crew of two.
This luxury cruiser unites safety and comfort with
excellent sailing characteristics. The ETAP 37s features
a 9/10 rigging with double spreaders, and a partially
battened mainsail with integrated mainsail cover and
furling genoa. All sailing controls are led to the very
spacious, ergonomic cockpit. Below deck, the
panoramic window ensures ample light for the exclusive
interior, which boasts an innovative and extremely
functional galley with a centrally-located double sink
unit. Ample locker space is provided, and there is a
roomy toilet compartment with wet stowage facilities.
A choice of interiors is available: Imbuya or cherrywood.

LAKELAND WATERS IN FINLAND
Lakeland is something exceptional. Its sparkling
waters and unspoilt landscape offer sailors an unforgettable experience. The options are endless:
swimming on a hot summer day, fishing and preparing
your catch in the galley of your boat, visiting a small
island, or simply enjoying the beauty of the natural
surroundings. The Finnish lake district has many small
harbours with extensive facilities and hundreds of
places to moor. Lakeland’s towns and villages are the
scene of festivals and events to suit every taste. Our
home port is Kuopio.
IJSSELMEER – THE FRISIAN LAKES
The 5-star Bouwsma Yacht Harbour – near the historic
town centre of Workum – offers you a wide choice of
sailing areas in which both family cruising parties and
sports sailing enthusiasts can be sure of finding their
ideal environment. The Frisian Lakes, with their
enchanting mixtures of out-of-the-way mooring
places and romantic villages, offer tranquillity and
relaxation for nature-loving sailors. In contrast, the
IJsselmeer is a paradise for sailors who appreciate the
rich tradition and delicious culinary fare of its small
fishing towns and welcoming restaurants. For the
more adventurous sailors, a cruise across the
Waddenzee to the North Friesland islands such as
Texel, Flieland and Terschelling offer the prospect of
a truly memorable sailing holiday.

inland lakes, canals and rivers. Naturally, the ETAP
1100 AC comes with the typical ETAP comfort to increase your cruising pleasure, including an attractive,
panoramic saloon finished in cherrywood, a convenient galley, ample locker space, and the fore and aft
cabins even have separate bathrooms! The technically
advanced materials used in the construction of ETAP
1100 AC also make it extremely easy to clean, and
maintain its new appearance over many years of use.
