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. At present Etaps are no longer being built, but plans are reputed to be in place to restart production.


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 makes 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 2007/8, the Etap 26i is designed by Mortain & Mavrikios, in conjunction with Etap's in-house design team. The Etap 26i is RCD Category B for four persons, or C for 6.
