2001 Alubat OVNI 435 Escape Key, like all OVNI's, was built to go around the world in safety and comfort. A large number of OVNI 435s are cruising in remote places. A major French yachting magazine called the 435 an "oceanic 4 x 4" referring to the strength of the boat and its go-anywhere versatility. AluBat (http://www.alubat.com/?lang=en) has been building aluminum sailboats for over 40 years and is one of the most experienced builders of quality sailboats. They have perfected construction in this solid material with their comprehensive range of sailboats from 37' to over 60'. The exceptionally strong and well-built aluminum hull will safely carry you wherever you decide to cruise. The hull is completely self-supporting, none of the bulkheads are structural. The mast is deck-stepped and all the standing rigging is welded to the hull sothat there are no opportunities for water or humidity to enter the vessel. Unlike teak decks that are drilled through the hull, are heavy, hot and require maintenance, AluBat yachts are coated with an anti-skid epoxy embedded with a crushed material that not only provides a safe platform, but also resists heat absorption. Escape Key's decks can be walked on in bare feet in the mid-day Mediterranean sun. The beautiful and well appointed interior will provide you with a comfortable cruise and a great live aboard environment. The boat is equipped with everything you need to sail away anywhere.
