Whether you’re cruising the canals or on a multi-day expedition, the Essence is engineered for performance on all types of water, not just the sea.

To Order only.

We do not carry this item in stock. Please contact us for availability.

The advanced hull design is solid tracking yet manoeuvrable. Performance adapts to suit the conditions with the multi-position retractable skeg. A strong V shape in the bow and stern gives true directional stability, whilst the defined chines and shallower profile under the cockpit enhance stability and control for smooth, predictable turns.
