Ovni 435

The Ovni is a lovely yacht!

We recently delivered one from the Solent to Portishead. Heres a short video for anyone that's interested:

Re: Ovni 435

Nice video (and nice boat!).

Just curious, who does the version of Mr. Brightsides on the video?

The first part is sailing out of the Solent passing the iconic Needles. Heading west passed Start Point, The Lizard and Lands End...

Re: Ovni 435

it's unfortunate, but last I checked the company is in BK and boatyard is not fairing much better. I hope they make it. It's one of the boats that checks many boxes for me.

Me too. If they are in dodgy circumstances that is sad. I've always thought they were a bit special.

The problem with Alubat (OVNI) is that the market is the same (now even lesser with the crisis) but Allures and Boreal, that are on the same niche market have been doing more modern boats and selling them in always increasing numbers. Allures has even managed to come very close to OVNI prices with a better quality interior. Tough market, though fight for survival

On Alubat they had taken too much time to react to the new boats, they have done it know with what they call evolution line but I am not sure they have got it right. I mean the boats are more modern but I don't know if they are not too modern

Interesting Sailboats

Regards

Paulo

Re: Ovni 435

Thanks for the heads up Paulo. I'll have to check out this new line you speak of. It's a shame some of these builders rest on their laurels. Ovni had a great thing going with their endorsement by byyyyyyyy.....crap i cant recall his name off the top of my head.....lol

Re: Ovni 435

Many thanks for the video.


I grew up in Portsmouth and spent many days sailing in the nearby harbours and the Solent. Good to see them again.
