Etap‘s S line, the one that distinguishes the yard’s sportier, higher-performance models, includes this 28-footer. Like all of the builder’s other models, this one is made with the ship-in-ship construction that promises unsinkability, better insulation, and a more polished finish. The interior, which in this case was designed by the Turin-based Stile Bertone studio, is very airy and perfectly lit, thanks to the large panoramic window. The result is a balanced vessel with long water lines and a very modern deckhouse profile.


Original in design, which bears the signature of the Bertone studio, it features a particularly high deckhouse that blends well with the rest of the deck. Good ergonomics of the spaces allow easy movement and access to the walkways from the cockpit even while sailing. Particular is the use of cork in the panelling of benches and guardrails, a material that is certainly less demanding and lighter than teak. Excellent cockpit sizing and protection due to the shape of the deckhouse.


The only version available has 2 cabins, double and very large the aft one, more contained but connected to the dinette forming a very cozy open space, the forward one. This solution does not leave much room for charting, positioned by broadside and without a planned seat. A kitchen with an L-shaped floor plan and a bathroom measuring 134×100 cm with a height of 186 cm complete the interior. Made of fine materials, all interiors enjoy a functional design characterized by the absence of sharp corners.
