You mean Jimmy Cornell, the guy that circumnavigate 3 times and end up discovery the French aluminum centerboarders?

The last one with an OVNI 43 (70 000 nm).

I guess you would be interested in this article:

Jimmy Cornell answers questions about OVNI yachts | Cornell Sailing Publications and Events

Except that Jimmy has commissioned a new boat and it is not an OVNI or even an Alubat. It is also a French aluminum centerboarder but made by Garcia, and a one off, his dream boat. I am very curious about it.

Garcia belongs to Allures (the hulls are made there) and has a long history in what regards making big high quality aluminum boats, most of them centerboarders.

Certainly a boat to follow on the interesting boat thread

Regards

Paulo
