The esse 990.
The sporty high-end daysailor.

The esse 990 combines everything you need for day sailing in style. Glide along weightlessly even in a very light breeze and look stunning at the same time, thanks to its simple and elegant lines. Do you prefer a sportier approach? Even with a modest crew, the esse 990 leaves all competition in its wake.

The duplex steel keel structure supports the lead bulb and is designed as a lifting keel so that the draft can be reduced to 1.70 m. The gennaker boom can be easily extended and retracted from the cockpit.

An inboard motor with saildrive and a self-tacking jib are standard.

In addition, various options such as teak deck and custom exterior colours are also available.
