Broker's Comments

Yachting Monthly 2009 described the Etap28i - Etap 28i

Unfortunately the photos show the deck in a discoloured state but she has been painted since and looks much brighter. Due to her location I have not been in a position to retake photos. It is also possible for the mooring to be transferred. One of the best and most popular of all the Etaps, this
tidy-looking Harlé & Mortain
design was launched in 1987.
She replaced the Etap 28,
designed by Van de Stadt in
1978, and was a more modern
boat in every respect. With a
generously roached, fully-
battened mainsail and working
jib set on a sporty, 7/8 fractional
rig and a fixed, deep-fin keel, she
is a sharp performer, enjoyable
to sail, good for short-handed
cruising and ideal for a couple
with two children.
The main cabin and forepeak
are open-plan, under a semi-
flush deck, with good headroom up to the forecabin, which is curtained off
from the saloon. There is a large aft cabin, a good galley, a spacious heads
abaft the companionway and a reasonable chart table.

Offered in very good order moored on the Lakes and wintered on the hard over the past few years the owner is reluctantly selling at a reduced price.
