The Etap 28i replaced the Etap 28, designed by Van de Stadt in 1978, and was a more modern boat in every respect. A feature of the Etap 28i is its double skin foam filled construction making it unsinkable and with high condensation resistance.
With a generously roached,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, spacious heads abaft the companionway and a reasonable chart table.
