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.
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.
