UPDATE: The engine was started lastly in September 2023
India Song returned safely from her last travels to the Indian Ocean. This sturdy little boat is now waiting for a new owner in Langkawi, ready to keep on sailing, as the current owner had to return home for medical reasons.
Ovni 31 are one of a kind. Built at the beginning of a long series, they were built to prove their strength, which they did. Rather charming and practical boat, she would be ideal for 1 person.
Langkwai is ideal to start sailing, with its 99 islands all around, beautiful weather from november to april, and Thailand and Indonesia being very close by.
The boat first sailed in Brittany (France), then around the world. It had a break on the hardstand for some years in Malaysia, then sailed again smoothly for the last few years.
- the engine is revised and has few hours on it.
-the boat is completely electrically independant with new starter batteries (sept.2023), inverter, charger 240AC
-electronics have been upgraded to the latest technology (plotter, AIS, iridium go, .... ) in 2021
ALUMINIUM BOATS have many advantages. They need less maintenance and age better. They are lighter. Which makes them easier to tow on the beach, and more economical in power.
They are stronger, and less likely to ba damaged after impacts. They are more solid as all welded together, and therefore they rarely get leaks.
Corrosion can be a worry for new owners, but corrosion is easy to see if it has started. And it can also be detected during surveys.
India Song does not show any sign of corrosion. so far.
The boat is located in Rebak Marina, Langkawi, easily reached by flight, through Langkawi international airport.
