Advertiser's comments

MCA CAT-2 coded blue water aluminium lift-keel yacht with huge ocean-going inventory and plenty of recent investment. A true ‘go anywhere’ cruiser.   FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:   The Ovni range of alloy built, lift keel cruisers have built an enviable reputation as durable, go anywhere blue water cruisers. Arguably the lifting keel allows them to explore waters out the reach of normal cruising yachts.   Bought to fulfil a long held blue water cruising ambition. LOTUS explored the waters of the Atlantic as far south as Trinidad and as far north as Nova Scotia during a two year expedition with the current owners. Sailing the large majority of the time with just two aboard. She has proved herself the ideal, short handed blue water cruiser.   Since the end of the 2018 season she has enjoyed a full cosmetic overhaul with a full re-paint of the sheerband, deck, superstructure, cockpit and transom. Full valeted below decks she is reluctantly offered for sale with a comprehensive inventory. She benefits from:

  • Fully battened, Hydranet mainsail by Owen Sails (2016)
  • Roller reefing, Pro-Vectran genoa by Owen Sails (2018)
  • Electric anchor windlass (2017)
  • Full overhaul of steering gear and rudder bearings (2016)
  A great opportunity to by a well presented and equipped version of this rugged blue water cruiser ready to launch and sail away this spring. Wintering ashore she is available for viewing by prior appointment.   BUILDER’S COMMENTS:   OVNI – “THE” lifting keel aluminium yacht.   OVNIs have been designed for experienced, demanding customers keeping in mind that they are built for intensive use. They are the ideal boats for blue water sailing. Often referred to as the “4 x 4” of the seas, OVNIs live up to this description, synonymous with:
  • Strength: Of the hull & layout
  • Off road: What boat can compete for sailing anywhere and in any weather?
  • Safety: With its lifting keel, the Ovni can find shelter anywhere
  • Comfort: In rough seas, keel up, the boat glides smoothly on the water, something appreciated by everyone on board in bad weather.
  Just like the ‘4 x 4’s, OVNIs have changed a lot since their initial conception: the interior fittings are now at the level of the most luxurious standards, but our constant search for simple solutions enables us to steer clear from pointless sophistication.   MANUFACTURER HISTORY:   In 1974 ALUBAT built ‘VODKA’, the prototype of the first OVNI ever: the OVNI 25. It was made of aluminium but with a fin keel. Then, the OVNI 31 soon enlarged the range, but as a weighted lifting keel boat. After that, the OVNI 28, launched in 1978, was the first aluminium lifting keel boat and although it had a bilge keel, it did set the tone for the next designs.   Later, in 1994, the yard started to build keel yachts. Today, this range includes 4 CIGALES (from 14 to 22 meters) and the 'ALUBAT 58'.   Bought out in 2014 by 14 shareholders represented by Michel Berson, president, and managed by Christian PICARD, the ALUBAT shipyard has built more than 1,500 units, all aluminium, most of which are still sailing all over the world.   CONSTRUCTION   RCD Status:
