Has anyone set eyes on this boat

Hi everyone,

I am looking at a boat for a guy out of OZ and since I am in Sydney I thought I would ask if anyone has seen this boat in the flesh so to speak.

If you have, or are happy to pop over and have a quick look, let me know

Used Ovni 385 for Sale | Yachts For Sale | Yachthub

Thanks

Her hard chines give her away as French built. According to sailboatdata.com they were built by a company called Alubot in France between 1997 and 2004


Cheers

Whaddaya mean, up the rig? I'm the one who won't come back down!

That avatar photo was taken by a videographer during San Diego's annual Festival of Sail. I'd still be up there, except the ship is no more.
