The launch of the OVNI 495 has marked a turning point in the range.
OVNI throughout, this luxury centreboarder proudly displays its chines and 50-foot aluminium hull. Its exceptional cockpit for its size and ergonomics, combined with the elegance of the coachroof make it one of the most accomplished boats of its generation.
The large saloon, the vast owner's cabin and 2 aft cabins have been designed with both elegance and sobriety. The spacious and easily accessible technical area will convince even the most demanding sailor. With 120 m2 of upwind canvas, a waterline length of 13.25 m and twin rudders, the OVNI 495 is precise at the helm, well-balanced and terribly efficient. As soon as hull number one was launched, the interest in this magnificent Philippe Briand-designed boat was enormous.
