The Bali World
The BALI catamarans range has a unique and recognizable DNA. The BALI Catamarans are the result of the R&D department of the CATANA shipyard, a legendary brand renowned for its high-performance and top-of-the-range catamarans.
The catamarans of this company are known and appreciated for their rigid front cockpits with lounge and sunbathing areas, the platform connecting the two rear skirts with large bench and trunks, the large tilt-and-turn door and sliding windows as well as a panoramic relaxation area on the roof. BALIs are much more than catamarans, they are witnesses to life experiences and sharing.
“When Olivier Poncin , president of Catana Group, decided to build Bali catamarans, he couldn’t afford to run after the other shipyards which already produced more affordable cruising multi-hulls; so, he decided to reinvent them”. Luigi Coretti of Adria Ship, the Italian society importing Bali boats, uses these words to explain the commercial root and the philosophy of the French brand, which exhibited the Bali 4.0 at the last Boot Düsseldorf.
The fleet of the brand currently includes four sailing models and a motor one, all conceived by Poncin and designed by Xavier Faÿ for the naval architecture and Hervé Couedel for interiors.
The “heart” of the production is the Bali 4.0, the smallest catamaran of the range (just 11.93 m) currently built in two different versions: Lounge, available in six different interior layouts, featuring two cabins and two bathrooms or even six cabins, each with an en-suite toilet. And Day-Charter, specifically designed for charter companies and with a 28-passenger capacity. ” A very successful boat: 62 units sold over the total 100 ones sold by the shipyard in two years“.
The larger model, the model 4.3, features usable spaces and wide volumes worthy of bigger yachts. It is available in two versions: sailing and motor. Yachtsmen, in fact, are increasingly asking for boats able to combine the advantages of a motoryacht and those of a multi-hull: spacious interiors, stability and low consumption. Interiors are available in two different layouts, with three or four cabins, all with en-suite bathroom.
