OVNI 430

a New generation of aluminum sailboats building on the success of tried and tested design

With our experience and expertise in blue water sailing yachts, Alubat collaborated with the MORTAIN & MAVRIKIOS and CBA agencies to upgrade the OVNI 400 to the OVNI 430.

The OVNI 430 is part of the new generation of boats combining innovation, elegance, ergonomics, comfort and performance.

A hull with an inverted and voluminous bow giving the boat great length at the waterline. It is built-in semi-thick aluminum and a lighter structure (10mm for the bottom plate, 8 mm for the rest of the hull). The hull hollow is also moved slightly to the front as compared to the 400.

There is an increase in volume in the front 2/3rds of the hull. An additional chine has been added to the bottom.

The keel lifts all the way inside the hull for better hydrodynamics. 

Cast iron NACA profile centerboard with manual lift.

The lifting centerboard allows access to shallow, protected waters, and the ability to beach without sacrificing performance or safety.

The front of the coach roof is slightly widened as compared to the 400, and the coach roof angles are slightly modified to allow the deck saloon interior layout.

The mainsheet arch is removed and the mainsheet is now on the coach roof. The Genoa and Staysail sheet passages have also been improved.

The boom is slightly lowered and the integrated double bowsprit and forestay have been moved to the front.

The companionway door is inclined and watertight.

Access to the stern lockets from the cockpit have been added and the life raft locket has been extended for additional storage.

A panoramic view for active watchkeeping, great light and ventilation, an offset salon on the port side for an open and connected interior, a spacious head with separate shower, and a large fore owner cabin highlight the new, modern layout design.

As part of the new generation of boats, the Ovni 430 combines innovation, comfort and performance. The inverted bow gives a longer waterline length, improving performance and expanding the interior volume.

The Ovni 430 improves on the tried and tested design of the 400. An upgraded raised interior features panoramic view for active watchkeeping, great light and ventilation. An offset salon on the port side opens the interior area.

A large owner cabin is located forward and highlights the new, modern layout and design. There is a spacious head with a separate shower on board.
