Everything is new on this CIGALE 16, everything but the concept and the name of course.
When you say “CIGALE” to a blue water sailing lover, it echoes in his/her ear like a familiar legendary name. But the brand new CIGALE 16 is everything but an extrapolation of known recipes, it is indeed a new concept of fast cruiser, comfortable and elegant.
In this project developed with Marc Lombard, ALUBAT has decided to combine both the progress accomplished in naval architecture and the technical improvement of our shipyard.
As a result, we designed a more reliable, more elegant and more comfortable CIGALE 16. 100% new, 100% aluminum, 100% CIGALE. Pure lines and a completely cleared deck.
The 100% aluminum construction quality of ALUBAT and the unequaled experience of our metal work team have been dedicated to create this beautiful unit that is the new CIGALE 16: Flush deck hatches, halyard passage under the deck, coaming’s plexi recessed under the roof-coaming. Everything was deeply thought to give an exceptional line to this new CIGALE 16 by Marc Lombard.
The deck layout highlights the fact that aluminium can also be elegant: rounded shapes, integrated halyard routing and flush portholes represent the main caracteristics. Easy to maneuver with a small crew. Being able to maneuver from the rear of the cockpit gives more space for living onboard
The inflated dinghy can be stored on the large quarter deck which becomes an unrivalled sunbathing place at anchorage
The hard chine hull of the CIGALE 16 gives more stability and more power, allowing the boat to have larger sails.
The thin bilge pieces, keel and double rudder designed by marc Lombard make the most of this superb hull
