Yachting BrokersYachting Brokers are delighted to offer for sale an immaculate, well cared for, two owner Etap 37S. The Etap 37S is a modern fast family cruiser with the usual high build quality and careful and innovative detailing of the Etap brand. Etap are a large Belgian company with a variety of products, and have been building yachts since 1970. 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. Etaps were not cheap, but they were renowned for being very well engineered and built.
In production until 2009, the Etap 37S 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. This model is fitted with the tandem shallow draft keel which without affecting her performance conforms to the specification for the French canals so you can head South without going the long way around!
Sailmagazine test sail reported: "...the optional tandem keel. This unique design achieves shoal draft with two separated in-line fins connected by a ballast bulb. It immediately “locked in” and behaved like a normal single fin on all points of sailing with excellent performance. This is a tricky bit of design, and the engineers spent many hours of test time to get it right.
We got about 6 knots of boatspeed to windward and on reaches, with a perfectly balanced helm. The 37s tacked easily and was close-winded."
