The ALOA 45 is a cutter rigged ketch, manufactured by Alba S.I.P. Industries, Cannes la Bqcca, France in 1978.
Odile is a Registered British Ship – No: 388616
We intend buying a Motor Yacht and would consider part-exchange for a similar size boat.
We have owned her for 30 years. She has been very well kept and all the equipment is in working order. We sailed home from the Mediterranean to UK where in 2010 she had a refit. Odile was completely re-rigged - new bottle screws and turnbuckles (Staylock); the fuel tank was cleaned and fitted with three inspection hatches. New fuel & water gauges were fitted and all ports and hatches (Goiot) were replaced and a Sliepner Sidepower Bowthruster (8hp) was installed.
We then sailed to the Baltic where for the last nine years she has been berthed at Burgstaaken, Fehmarn, Germany. She spends 7 months each year inside a boat storage hall. Odile is currently traversing German Inland Waterways (without masts) and will return to Fehmarn in September. Odile is a strong and powerful boat. Her ketch rig with both a reefing main and mizzen together with a furling staysail means she can be comfortably sailed in most conditions. Her heavy displacement and large tanks enable her to travel long distances in complete comfort.
