Does anyone have any firsthand experience with the ETAP boats? Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks,

ETAP 39

I''ve alerted a friend of mine to your post because last year she bought a mid-1980''s Etap 30 from a couple that just bought a brand new Etap 34. The 34 was in the Annapolis show this year.

As for my own experience, I have really liked the Etap''s since back in the ''80''s when they were first in the American market. They left with the recession of the early 90''s and are just now getting back into the American market. I''ve spent considerable time kicking around the 39 at the Annapolis show the last 2 years and am really impressed with it. Have never sailed it, however, but the boat is full of well thought out features. Of course, it helps if you like the Euro look. The 39 was one of the big magazine''s Top Ten boats for 2001 if I remember correctly.

The boats are priced well because the dollar is so strong. The "unsinkable" feature is nice, too. On the whole, the Etaps are worth a look in my opinion. A whole lot better built than a lot of other boats, both American and European, in the same price range.
