Project Description

Ovni 39 aluminium – 1993

Koala is an OVNI 39, aluminium ocean cruising boat, in excellent condition and equipped to sail safely from the tropics to higher latitudes like Patagonia or Alasak.  A solid build in aluminium makes this a good ocean boat in all conditions and the lifting centreboard means you can get into shallow water anchorages.  This Ovni 39 is the 2 double cabins 2-bathroom version, with 2 bunks in the saloon, so there is space for a small family or group of friends to sail together.  Equipped with heating as well as well ventilated, this is a versatile boat as good for living on board as sailing far.

Koala was refitted in 2017 by Arzal Nautique, the Ovni specialist in Brittany France, before sailing to French Polynesia.  Her current owners bought her 3 years ago and have added more equipment so as to be able to sail safely as a couple or solo.  The boat has just done a full tour of French Polynesia, including sailing back from the Gambier to Tahiti with just her skipper on board.  The list of recent equipment is impressive:

  • Standing rigging 2017, running rigging 2017 or more recent
  • Mainsail and genoa 2017, + old sails on board
  • Staysail as well as storm sails, gennaker and spinnaker in good condition
  • Windvane steering Hydrovane 2020
  • Engine with 2500h and 3 blade J-prop propeller
  • 3 anchors and chain from 2020
  • Windlass 2017 with remote 2020
  • Garmin plotter and VHF AIS 2017
  • Interior upholstery 2018
  • Hydraulics to lift rudder tubing changed 2020
  • Solar panels 2017, Victron charge controller 2020
  • Wind generator 400W
  • Hydrogenerator Watt&Sea 300W 2017
  • Watermaker 35L/h 2017
  • EPIRB 2017, Medical and Fire extinguishers 2020

In this price range it’s almost impossible to find an aluminium centreboard boat in such good condition.  If you’re looking for a sailboat to discover the Pacific or further, don’t let this opportunity pass you by.  Download the inventory and contact to arrange your visit.
