The new Bali’s have arrived. The Catana cat builders have just announced a series of Bali yachts that offer a series of spectacular departures from convention when it comes to cruising cats.
Yacht Share Mariner will offer for the first time in Australia the brand-new Bali 4.4, with arrival in Australia planned during the middle of 2022.
Very special is the rigid deck forward with a second cockpit accessible from the saloon through a lockable forward door. This brings the ergonomically designed galley forward so that it is central to the spacious saloon aft. The full-sized two-door fridge-freezer even offers an ice machine and chilled water at the press of a button!
Next is the coup de grace of this brilliant Xavier Fay design. The large tilt and turn door lifts the aft bulkhead and connects the back of the boat to the front. This results in light and ventilation, without equal on any other catamaran, pouring through more than 80 M2 of usable space!
Below-deck the whole of one hull is taken up with the owner’s cabin and ensuite, while the guest cabins on the other side each have private on-suite facilities. The boat is fully air-conditioned and comes with its’ own water maker.
The helm station is accessible from both sides of the boat but the helmsman does not have to be alone, there is seating right across the boat and a huge sun pad aft. The rig offers 150 M2 of upwind sail area so the Bali 4.4 is no slouch.
Pricing The price of a 1/8 share in a new Bali 4.4 with a high specification and a comprehensive list of options and including freight, duty, tax, customs clearance and commissioning $212,000.
