"Pompette" was purchased by her present owner in 2004. An insurance survey was undertaken in May 2010 and available for inspection, all recommendations carried out. The Etap is a triumph of engineering and modern design. The first thing that strikes you with this boat is the storage space and accommodation for a 38 footer. An enormous cockpit locker, great non slip decks (re-painted in 2019) for sure footed deck work. Down below she has acres of space both in the aft and forward cabins. The Etap 38i benefits from easy maintenance both inside and out, a great deck layout making for simple short handed sailing and of course the fact that she is unsinkable if the unthinkable were ever to happen.
In 2014 a new Beta engine was fitted and in recent years she had a new anchor windlass! During 2019 her engine has been serviced and heat exchanger cleaned, she has been antifouled, polished and her non slip decks re-painted as well as having her sails valetted.
