Meet the brand new BALI Catamarans:

The new lineup first model, the BALI 4.5 has been introduced in the fall 2014. Designed by Olivier Poncin, the BALI range was developed by naval architect Xavier Fay and interior designer Hervé Couedel.

Innovative Features:

The Bali innovates at the very core of the design and construction of its new catamaran

  • A completely flush deck offering a fully open space
  • Optimization of the natural ventilation
  • Large forward cockpit and enlarged sunbathing area
  • Exceptional comfort with huge water and fuel tankage,
    as well as refrigeration volume
  • Easy maneuvering with a self-tacking jib
