Etap 38i

The company’s fl ush deck designs work better on larger hulls and
this was the largest of its type. She is a striking, sea-kindly Harlé
Mortain creation with a robust masthead rig and fully battened
mainsail. She performs and handles well on all points of sail, though
the low boom can be a hazard. The accommodation is dramatically
styled with contrasting light-and-dark stained veneers. Critics
would say it is too obviously prefabricated, but supporters call it
modern and liken the styling to Ikea. Under the bright wheelhouse,
the galley is on one side, the chart table on the other and in the
middle is an island unit which contains the sinks and stowage. You
drop down a step to the saloon, where you run out of headroom
going forward. She has a large heads aft and six berths in three
cabins, including a spacious double berth in the aft cabin, a smaller
double in the forepeak and two sea-berths in the saloon.
