Anyone have any info on this Ovni?

I'm currently looking into buying a boat, I found this Ovni for sale down in Trinny that looks like a nice boat. The listing on YW and the actual Trinny broker both say "Sale Pending", does anyone know this boat or its current situation?

Very good reputation in Europe and usually hard to find
Preferred by long time or around the world cruisers
You will find info under Alubat (being the manufacturer) Ovni being one line of boats

Thanks, I know about the boats.. I have did my homework on them and about a half a dozen other boats. I was asking about this one in particular.

Can't help specifically, but by the listing it looks like the (low) price is reflected in some fairly big ticket items that need attention.

These are sought-after boats esp in the Caribbean chain where a lot of Europeans hang out.. could be a deal if you're able to deal with her issues without excessive cost.

That price is too good to be true. That boat sells for $200k plus.

20k for sails
12k for rigging
5k for bimini
3k fridge
1k for keel pump rebuild

I wonder if the keel has damage from a grounding. There are good some ali fabricators in Trini and Alubat is still in business so a new keel may be available.

Mind you could just sail it around the Caribbean with the keel down.
