Etap 30
Deep draft

Etap 30 is a cruising boat that takes the philosophy of the shipyard, a well built boat, well finished and unsinkable. On deck we find the standard anti-slip TBS, wedge-foot made of aluminum tube and good quality fittings.

Inside, unlike many boats in the same period (Attalia 32 or Elite 920 ...), the architect preferred the design of the hull to the wish for having a rear cabin. The foam used for unsinkablility reduces a little storage space but does not feel for habitable volume.
