The ETAP 30i was commissioned in 2003 and is a fast ocean-going 30-footer with a host of technical innovations such as a battened mainsail with integral reefing and self-tacking jib, all of which make it easy to handle even with a small crew. Below deck she has comfortable accommodation for up to 6, including a fully closable forecabin. Has been regularly maintained and is great value.

Whilst constructed in 2001 was not commissioned until 2003 and was the display boat at the Southampton boat show that year.
The owners preventative maintenance ensures all equipment is as new.
The ETAP construction means the deck and hull are double-skinned. The hollow space between the two decks and two hulls are filled with closed-cell polyurethane foam. The closed cell structure is almost entirely non-absorbent and gives the boat sufficient buoyancy for ETAP to claim that their boats are "unsinkable".
This boat is priced to sell and is currently in the water, a seatrial will convince its new owner that they have made the best choice.
