Bali Catamarans are designed to meet the needs of yachtsmen looking to sail with maximum living space, comfort and safety. For this, the CATANA yard is leveraging its celebrated skill set in the design of a revolutionary range of catamarans, with innovative ideas as yet unseen in this sector and which break with maritime tradition.
With their vast, unhindered interior and exterior living spaces, optimal level of self-sufficiency and pioneering spirit, BALI catamarans offer new pleasures and sensations to yachtsmen who are turning their backs on tradition and want to realize their dreams.
With two production sites in France, Canet-en-Roussillon and Marans, BALI Catamarans carefully controls every stage of the production process: research and development, molding by infusion, engine installation, electrics, plumbing, furniture, finishing, delivery and handover. All this ensures that the quality of each vessel is constantly overseen, from laying the keel to delivery.
Conceived by Olivier Poncin and his design team, the construction of BALI’s range of catamarans takes place at the heart of the CATANA yard in France.
With all the benefits of CATANA’s experience, technology and infrastructure, its boats have been sailing to every corner of the world for more than 30 years. Its technological mastery of sandwich infusion in polyester and closed-cell PVC foam guarantees both optimal build quality and notable weight savings.
The low density of this material (in contrast to most of our competitors who use balsa) contributes greatly to their buoyancy, making them virtually unsinkable. The use of the best anti-osmotic resins ensures the durability of the materials and hence the longevity of the boats.
BALI Catamarans’ range is a product of the CATANA research and development department, a legendary brand known for its high-performance, top-ranking catamarans. The BALI’s light weight, nacelle design, freeboard height and absence of a trampoline allows better passage through the water, without slamming and without getting sailors wet. All signs of safety and performance. With the rig further aft, there is scope for a larger headsail compared to its competitors, and a self-tacking solent gives great maneuverability: much appreciated when sailing short-handed. All of these innovations, included on BALI catamarans, are born of the philosophy and values of the CATANA Group.
BALI Catamarans has focused carefully on interior and exterior fittings as well as equipment in order to meet the demands of its clientele and the quality specifications of its brand. Electrical installation and cabling of the highest quality conform to CE standards, offering both reliability and easy access with a view to blending innovation, technology, design and durable development.
Our partner organizations, among the best suppliers of electronics, deck fittings and rigging, have been involved directly with the evolution of this new range of catamarans, suggesting innovative solutions and conducting tests both in the laboratory and on the water. Combined, you benefit from the best of their technology with the best of BALI Catamarans.
