Etap 22 with lifting keel, much of the voids are filled with closed cell foam which makes the boat Unsinkable. It also results in a boat that does not suffer with condensation problems. I bought this boat in October 2017, with the intension that this would be my final boat. When I bought the boat it was in good condition considering it's age. The boat has had a major refit since, with over £7500 spent. Including new engine, sails, covers, rigging, luff spars. Electronics, cooker. Also many other improvements to numerous to mention, e.g. Stainless grounding foot on rudder, electric panels hinged and accessible (3). The boat has been recently antifouled ready to go.
The boat is now for sale due to health reasons.

Lowrance hook7 plotter and depth sounder, this has a 7" display unit mounted in the cockpit, it comes ready loaded with charts of the UK. This unit has a depth sounder transducer which I did not fit, as there was already installed a NASA target depth sounder. I prefer to keep all instruments separate if possible so that if there is a fault at sea you do not lose everything.
