About This Boat

Ovni 43 'Lotus' :

Pricing : Per Person for 3 Days €1190

Capacity : 6 People

‘Lotus‘ is once again available for charter, having returned from a 14,000 mile, two year Atlantic circuit. The trip took her as far south as Venezuelan waters, Trinidad and North up the Eastern Seaboard of America to Nova Scotia in Canada.

This fantastic yacht is an aluminium Ovni 43. Manufactured by Alubat of France, she really is a world girdling, go anywhere vessel. ‘Lotus‘ is the same model as ‘Aventura III‘ used by the celebrated sailor Jimmy Cornell to complete tens of thousands of miles during his great ocean travels circumnavigating the globe. During her recent trip she admirably looked after her short handed crew through some testing conditions which included 6 metre waves and sustained force 9 winds. We can not speak highly enough about this safe, incredibly seaworthy boat.

At 43ft. she weighs in at only 8.5 tonnes (3.6 tonnes of internal lead ballast). She has a hydraulically operated rudder and centre board, which when raised, gives her a draught of only 0.8m: This allows access to many more remote, secluded and usually inaccessible anchorages. Turn up late to one of the more popular haunts and you’re usually assured of finding a spot, as she can occupy areas too shallow for the vast majority of yachts. In fact, if the seabed is suitable she can even be allowed to dry out.

If you‘ve experienced most that the European production boats have to offer, and would like to try something new, then a charter aboard this fantastic yacht could be for you. If you’ve ever dreamt of sailing off into the blue, then spend a week or two aboard this yacht, experiencing first hand, the equipment and systems found on long distance, live aboard yachts. You never know, it could be the start of your adventure of a lifetime; we could thoroughly recommend it and would be delighted to share our experience.

‘Lotus‘ is cutter rigged, with a fully battened main, furling Genoa, and carries a spinnaker and stay sail as part of her sail wardrobe. She is equipped with a colour plotter, radar, DSC vhf and a host of other electronics as part of a comprehensive inventory.
