This Etap 28 had a new Volvo D1-20 diesel engine fitted in 2009.
The present owner has owned this boat for about 10 years, sailing mainly single-handed. The boat is therefore set up for short handed sailing with self tailing winches for the headsail. An Eberspacher heater keeps the boat warm and cosy.
The Etap 28 has a double skinned hull; so condensation and head linings are never an issue. With 5 berths and good standing headroom they are ideal family cruisers with a good reputation for seakeeping,
These boat details are subject to contract.
