Adventurous cruising on two hulls

Since the late 1970s, Ovni's centerboard yachts have been taking their owners to cruising grounds far and wide in complete safety thanks to their aluminum hulls. A few years ago, the shipyard decided they wanted to get into the cruising catamaran market with a 48-foot model based on Mortain/Mavrikios plans. A project that remained on hold... until the first two orders! The Ovnicat 48 will now be the next new model, to be launched in 2024 by the manufacturer.

This catamaran designed for the most extreme programs will of course feature aluminum construction - except for the coachroof, which will be built in polyester composite. With an announced light displacement of 13.5 tons, Alubat are looking to keep a reasonable weight in order to offer good sailing performance. The sail plan, compared to the initial project, has been slightly enhanced, as has the size of the engines. As for the deck layout, particular attention will be paid to ensure easy use, either single handed or for a couple.
