OVNI 490 pilothouse aluminum sailboat

Priced at 1,226,375 €

an ideal sailing yacht for all weather conditions

Alubat’s experience in building aluminum centerboard yachts combined with the Mortain/Mavrikios and CBA design offices reputation, resulted in the new Ovni 490 aluminum pilothouse sailboat. 

The 490 sailboat shares the same hallmarks of the Ovni range and includes shaft drive, a complete sailplan for superior sailing performance, a centerboard, as well as a spacious interior with a raised deck salon layout. 

a world of difference: pilothouse & twin engines

Where the OVNI 490 sailboat stands apart from the other Ovni range is the new pilothouse design as well as the twin engines. 

The pilothouse is equipped with a watertight door and has surrounding windows for excellent visibility. That, as well as the secure position, makes it ideal for sailing in all weather conditions.

The well-connected pilothouse flows into the spacious interior which, with the expansive panoramic windows, numerous opening portlights and overhead hatches, provides plenty of ventilation throughout.

 The twin 50hp Volvo diesel engines not only increase your range during sailing expeditions, they also offer peace of mind with additional redundancies.

centerboard Advantages: go places where other sailboats can't

The advantages of having centerboard are numerous, from teh ability to beach your boat, navigate in shallow waters, even traverse canals. What is less known is the safety at sea when sailing in heavy weather

The centerboard on the Ovni 490 is a full-body aluminum NACA profile centerboard with manual lift.

modern interior layout

The modern design of the new Ovni 490 aluminum pilothouse sailboat creates a well-connected layout with a protected pilothouse that seamlessly flows into the bright, open-concept salon and galley. The panoramic views can be enjoyed both at anchor or while sailing to global destinations.

A spacious cockpit aboard the new Ovni 490 pilothouse aluminum sailboat is equipped with double helm stations. The dinghy arch is also ideal for mounting solar panels and other equipment. As with the Ovni range, the wide swim platform gives easy water access.
