Building and historic

Type OVNI 455 full aluminum centerboard sailboat, built in 2000 by the Alubat shipyards of Les Sables d'Olonnes, according to architect Philippe Briand's plans. It is rigged in cutter and thus has two sails of front: genoa and staysail, plus a mainsail, which gives him a sail surface of 140 m2.
This sailboat is known for the strength and lightness of its aluminum hull. For its draft of less than one meter, drift recovery, ideal for Polynesian lagoons. Finally, for the customization of the layout of the boat: the deck, deck hardware, mast, sails, electrical equipment and all instrumentation. A thousand pages of technical documentation have been produced for its construction, making it already a unique vessel.


Volvo Penta TMD22 78CV turbocharged - three-bladed propeller Max Prop (2000h)
Three alternators coupled to the engine, total power 4.5 KW
Fuel tank: 2x400L


Staysail: 31 m² instead of 15 in standard, making it a medium to strong sailing weather. It allows to drive in very comfortable conditions even with strong wind.
The mast has 3 stages of pushing arrows bars. In this way the position of the staysail stay coincides with the last stage of arrows bars.
The stays and turnbuckles were oversized.
The balance of the boat is perfect and the feeling of bar very pleasant.
Great genoa (for the light weather or the medium, so it is never half-rolled in navigation).
Mainsail (fast reefing, operational in less than 2 minutes from the cockpit)
All modifications of sails, sheets, halyards, automatic reefing, windings of the genoa and staysail, spinnaker and various adjustments are done safely from the cockpit. It is not necessary to move on the roof.
