The Esse 990 combines everything you need for day sailing in style. The sleek and elegant lines keep their promise and give the boat an incomparable feeling of almost weightless gliding, even when the breeze is very light.

Could it also be a bit more sporty? No problem! Even with a modest crew, the Esse 990 reveals its enormous potential and leaves all competition in its wake.

The main features of the boat’s construction are the solid and stiff sandwich construction in high-quality epoxy resin. The rig and gennaker boom are made of carbon. Standard fittings also include an inboard motor with saildrive and a self-tacking jib. The dimensions of 9.99 m length and 2.55 m beam allow easy transportation by trailer.

The duplex steel keel structure supports the lead bulb and is a liftable keel so that the draft can be reduced to 1.70 m. The gennaker boom can easily be extended and retracted from the cockpit. In addition to the extensive standard fittings, various options such as teak deck and special exterior colours are also available.
