Ovni 435 - Wanda - $298,000

Wanda is a 2003 Ovni 435 now exclusively for sale with YOTI.

Built in France by Alubat from hard chine aluminium, these superb ocean going yachts are a rare and special find in this country. Recognised by blue water cruising sailors for their strong build, twin headsail cutter rigs, retracting centre boards and rudder, Ovnis are highly sought after by those in the know.

Ordered by her original owner with almost every significant cruising option available, Wanda is set up as a seriously capable cruiser / passage maker / expedition yacht which by design of the lifting centre board hugely increases access to shallow waterways. Impressively, Wanda is just at home easily and comfortably enjoying local waterways.

Interior accommodation consists of three double cabins with owner's cabin forward with private head and shower. The big 'U' shaped saloon can seat 8 + adults. The in-line galley is safe, secure with many brace points and features deep fridge and separate freezer. The dedicated nav station to port houses the main plotter with RADAR plus VHF and HF radios. A second large head and shower is to starboard. Good engine access is under the companion way stairs (not a ladder).

Some of her notables include generator, water maker, wind and solar, bow thruster, Webasto heating, electric halyard winch, davits, washing machine, RADAR, two auto-pilots, Profurl in-boom mainsail and electric genoa furler.

Anti-fouled and serviced December 2017, this Ovni 435 is available for inspection on Pittwater.
