The ALUBAT shipyard was delighted to launch on Monday November 19th in Port Olona, Les Sables d'Olonne, a CIGALE 16 new version, designed by Marc Lombard.

PLEIONE, number 4 of the series, is owned by an English couple, who could be there to happily witness the perfectly executed launch of their new boat.

We also had the pleasure to welcome Ouest France and the local newspaper, Le Journal des Sables, to cover this event as you will be able to see on our Facebook page. 

PLEIONE will stay in Port Olona until her departure for a transatlantic crossing mid-January.

Fair winds to the new Alubat owners!

Truck loading 

After the keel was attached a few days ago, the boat and the mast were loaded on truck in our yard in Le Château d'Olonne. 

Yard departure

Both boat and mast left the yard with "wide load" escort to Port Olona in Les Sables d'Olonne. 


Finally the boat was smoothly and well launched under the owner's emotional supervision.
