History of the company

Etap Shipyard was founded in Belgium 40 years ago. Even then, she set out on a course to create unusual yachts (both sailing and motor) with unique technical solutions. In recent years, Etap has been building absolutely unsinkable sailing yachts - their special feature is that these boats have two hulls (inner and outer) and the space between them is filled with special foam. As a result, the boats do not sink even if they are cut through a hole.

In 2007 Etap Shipyard was bought by German company Dehler. The deal took place at a bad time for the yachting world, almost on the threshold of crisis. After the purchase, the Germans closed production in Belgium the first thing they did. Under the wing of Dehler, the Belgian shipyard did not stay long, the company went bankrupt already in 2008 and Etap was sent on its own.

The shipyard's latest achievement was the sailboat Etap 28 S, it received an award at the Düsseldorf show and was named Best Boat «of the Year 2008.


Shipyard is non-functional.

In the first stage, China and SEA were to become the main market for the shipyard, but the company was not able to establish itself.
