Pure Materials

The Esse 750 is a carbon boat. Its hull and deck consist of a vacuum assisted infusion carbon composite sandwich construction. Rudder, mast and boom also consist of carbon. As for the construction of the Esse 850 and Esse 990, Josef Schuchter put his trust in the Italian designer Umberto Felci for the development of the Esse 750. This resulted in a successful continuation of the Esseboats design concept.

Pure Sailing

The Esse 750 is conceived as a two-man racer. The modern sail plan includes a self-tacking jib and jib-furler, a square top mainsail and gennaker. The gennaker is set through a launching tube. Neither backstay nor runners are needed and the gennaker can be dropped using a dropline. Thanks to its construction, the technical configuration and the optimal handling characteristics, the boat therefore also guarantees a great sailing experience as a single hander.
