The Esseboats brand in Switzerland is best known for the Esse 850. The equally elegant and fast keelboat has established itself within the last 15 years as one of the strong and decisive sports boat classes, also internationally. The follow-up model was the ten meter long Esse 990, which was more of a sporty daysailer. The boat came onto the market in 2009 (test in YACHT 21/2009).
Now, shipyard manager Josef Schuchter on Lake Zurich has fundamentally revised the concept of the 990 together with designer Umberto Felci. Now the boat is being presented as an update under the name Esse 330, with a new deck and a longer cabin structure for more living space below deck. And touring suitability has now become an important issue. The nicely built interior design offers numerous options for more comfort and accommodation for the weekend or for a short tour.
Josef Schuchter will present the Esse 330 as a novelty at the boot trade fair in Düsseldorf. The YACHT has already tested the attractive Swiss woman.
The extensive test report of the Esse 330 can be found in YACHT, issue No. 25-26 / 2019. The booklet is available in the DK shop or you can download the test directly from the link below
