This Ocean going yacht is a splendid versatile yacht well worth considering for your Sailing holiday on

The West Coast of Scotland.

Built by Alubat of France, she was built to an outstanding and revolutionary design. She is a good size yacht with plenty of space down below. She’s quite a light boat weighing in at 8.5 tonnes and has 3.6 tonnes of internal lead ballast. The centre board and rudder can be raised using the hydraulic powered systems. The draught with the centreboard and the rudder raised is 0.8 metres. As you can imagine this an amazing bonus when exploring the more remote anchorages on the West Coast. The Ovni 43 has proved itself on the oceans of the world having been extensively sailed by Jimmy Cornell on his tremendous voyages circumnavigating the globe.. If you would like to read more about his adventures, including those on Aventura III, research details of his Odyssey Rallies and find out about his new book “200,000 MILES” please go to their website.
