2018 Bali 4.0 Catamaran

The acute angle of the bottom section of the solid foredeck causes the bows to lift, rather than dive, improving performance even further. Since there is no netting the foredeck is relatively dry in most conditions but even if it does take a lot of water over the bows, the water drains efficiently and quickly. It has a very unique and clever draining system. The water drains through a big opening in the well next to the windlass down into the anchor locker. It is fitted with three backward facing scuppers, mounted in the step, which is molded into the center nacelle. This allows for a quick purging of the water with no pushback. The solid foredeck also allows for much more buoyancy forward than a conventional catamaran and in our experience does not slam any more than other catamarans that we have sailed on.

The Bali catamaran range is a young brand that stems from an esteemed background. It has a few teething issues but In our opinion there are no problems with the solid foredeck of the Bali that we can see at this stage. We are certainly open to hearing different opinions from informed sources and would be happy to update current information as it becomes available. So far Bali has proven to be strong, fast and seaworthy and it is a fun sailing boat. 

The BALI 4.0 is characterized by a single cockpit / saloon area, entirely flush and unencumbered by bulkheads, accessible via an immense folding glass door on electric rams. So in the blink of an eye you can switch from Cosy mode to Lounge model. A forward cockpit with dining area as well as an immense sunbathing area in place of the traditional trampoline. BALI catamarans were designed to meet the needs of yachtsmen looking to sail with maximum living space, comfort and safety. For this the CATANA yard brought a particular skill to the design of revolutionary range of catamarans, with innovative ideas as yet unseen in this sector and which break with maritime tradition.
With its vast, unhindered interior and exterior living spaces, an optimal level of self-sufficiency and a pioneering nature, the range of Bali Catamarans is offering new pleasures and sensations to yachtsmen turning their backs on tradition and who want to realize their dreams.

Relaxation: Sailing and fun in Lounge mode

Extra living space with sunbathing area on the coachroof

Comfort: when the interior becomes the exterior
As with its big brothers, the BALI 4.5 Open Space and the BALI 4.3 Loft, the BALI 4.0 enjoys an extraordinary amount of natural light. The large retractable windows bring an unequalled freshness into the saloon as well as a panoramic view. The many hatches in the hulls ensure exceptional natural ventilation.
Its technical equipment will satisfy the most exacting sailors, and then for the most exacting cook, forward is the latest generation fitted galley allowing you to cook with a sea view.
