OVNI 450 Classic

lightweight aluminum construction, efficient hull design, and a well-balanced sail plan

Renowned naval architect Marc Lombard, who designed the original plans of this lifting keel boat, has revisited the design of the Ovni 445 and brought new elements to bring more light inside and more comfort and usable space outside.

Cast iron NACA profile centerboard with hydraulic lifting system.

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

The Ovni 450 stands out from the Ovni range of sailboats and maintains a traditional cabin top styling. What is does share is the same combination of lightweight aluminum construction, efficient hull design, and a well-balanced sail plan.

Like other sailboats in the Ovni range, the 450 features a lifting keel, allowing access to shallow anchorages and improved upwind performance.

Designed for long distance sailors, a platform bowsprit, includes a double bow roller that is easy to access. And for the liveaboard sailor, a larger forward sail locker is ideal for keeping fenders and sails out of the cabin.

A wide hull and large roof portholes in the salon provide light and ventilation throughout.
