Builders of Alubat, Ovni, Cigale, and Levrier hard-chine aluminum cruising boats.
Review of a 46-foot water-ballasted cruiser. "The Cigales have been created to sail at the very edge of the performance spectrum. The boats are essentially ultralight-displacement boats in the same vein as the Open designs Finot pioneered." Good photos in the print version, none on line.
Safe, tough, light, enlightened are the words for this aluminum cruiser. "As a concept she is remarkable, and as a boat beneath your feet she feels just right" says this reviewer. Print version is 4 pages with photos.
There are 8 models of Ovni from 32 - 56 feet and 3 models of the ultra-light Cigale. BWS describes the advantages of flat bottomed aluminum hulls.
An ultra-light design that "still manages to deliver a level of comfort comparable to any of the most modern cruising boats."
