Etap 39s
Deep draft

The Etap 39s is an unsinkable cruiser sailboat; indeed as the other boats of the shipyard she is equipped with polyurethane foam between the two skins of the hull and buoyancy volumes at the bow and stern. Apart from this technical aspect this boat is relatively conventional only few details show that Etap has tried to make life easier for sailors: the boat comes in standard with Lazy Jack and Lazy Bag and a small windshield that protects the crew and companionway. Etap 39s was available with 2 or 3 cabins.
