The latest development in Bali Catamaran range, which will likely later be completed by a flagship model of over 50ft.
There was a time when cruising catamaran coachroofs proudly displayed their coefficients of air penetration and even had a structural role! The interior designers came in some time back and jumped at the opportunities available to crews with these new volumes! Another revolution is taking place right in front of our eyes. One which aims to free the whole platform of bulkheads, completely revisiting the way we move around on board and the design of the nacelle! Leopard and Lagoon have both employed the use of a forward cockpit for some time now, with the Cape Town yard then opening a breach in the forward bulkhead, by cutting a door in it. Greg Young and Tag invented the modular deck salon. The Bali 4.3 and 4.0 have today standardised the opening of the front bulkhead, installing a sun-deck in place of the trampoline and creating a retracting aft window panel. A real step forward!
