We have had an Etap 22i for 7 years and confidently use it to cross the North Sea or English Channel to Europe. We have no intention of selling it.

I have given the headline 'Possibly the best trail-sail boat' because it is the best compromise between I have yet seen between being small enough to tow on a road, and big enough to sail safely over deep waters (or shallow creeks). Being unsinkable adds to confidence, but at the cost of very little stowage space in the cabin. (The double skin keeps the boat cool in hot sunshine, and warm on frosty nights.) The boat is reasonably fast, even without tweaking the sails, and can frequently keep up with 30ft boats.

A down-side is the cost : Good examples are expensive when compared to other 22ft trail-sail boats, and are seldom on the market for long.

Other owners seem to share my views, as very few ever sell their boats. The 22i is the most actively used type in the Trail-Sail Association.
