Ovni 430 – A New Generation of Aluminum Sailboats

The OVNI 430 aluminum sailboat is part of the new generation of sailing yachts combining innovation, ergonomics, comfort and performance.

BUILDING ON THE SUCCESS OF TRIED AND TESTED SAILBOAT DESIGN

Alubat’s experience and expertise in building blue water 100% aluminum sailboats in collaboration with MORTAIN & MAVRIKIOS and CBA design agencies, meant that the upgrade from the OVNI 400 to the new OVNI 430 was bound to be a success.

The OVNI 430 aluminum sailboat is part of the new generation of sailing yachts combining innovation, ergonomics, comfort and performance.

The aluminum hull with an inverted and voluminous bow gives the boat a longer waterline. The sailboat hull is built using semi-thick aluminum resulting in a lighter overall structure (10mm for the bottom plate, 8 mm for the rest of the hull). 

There is also an increase in volume in the front two thirds of the hull, creating extra space in the forward lockers. This results in a larger sail locker and a deeper anchor locker.

Another change from the previous sailboat model is the addition of another chine in the structure. This chine, combined with other changes to the hull, means that the centerboard lifts all the way inside for better hydrodynamics while sailing as well as a better position when beached.
