The Etap 32S is a modern fast family cruiser with the usual high build quality and careful and innovative detailing of the Etap brand. Like all Etaps, she is 'unsinkable' - even if holed Etaps will not just float but still be sailable, though a little slower. This 2004 Etap 32S is a shallow draught tandem keel version with EVS steering, and is in very good condition throughout, with quite a lot of recent updates. The present owners have owned her since 2011 and sailed her both locally from their SW England base, and cruised from there to Brittany and the west coast of Scotland. They are only selling now because they have now bought a larger Etap.

Etap were a large Belgian company with a variety of products, and have been building yachts since 1970. In 1990 the yacht building division was split off as a separate company, Etap Yachting. In 2008 the Etap yachting division was bought by Dehler, but in 2009 Dehler then became insolvent. Etap briefly restarted as an independent company, but then again ceased trading.
Etaps have always been 'different' - all their boats are unsinkable, with double skins and closed-cell polyurethane foam. This also gives excellent insulation to the interior, minimising condensation. The company made extensive use of custom aluminium and stainless fabrications produced in-house. Etaps are not cheap, but are very well engineered and built.
In production until the company ceased trading, the Etap 32S is a modern fast cruiser with some unusual but practical design features, and all the high quality engineering that made Etaps different from other production boatbuilders.
