Well, well, well we have a couple of interesting additions to our listings in the guise of not one, but two Bali Catamarans at the same time.
The first, a Bali 40, which has been extended to a 41, not exactly sure why, but I have been told to comply with some Greek licensing regulation? Anyway it looks in nice condition inside and out and had a good report from a reliable source and have heard its a well maintained example.
The Bali is built by the Poncin yard in France, who build Catana performance catamarans, which seems it was answer to losing out on sales to the flybridge spacious cruising style catamarans, such as Fountaine Pajot and Lagoon.
With some unique sales points its easy to understand why these catamarans started to give both F.P. and Lagoon a run for their money.
I love the unique way the saloon door opens, rather like an up and over garage door, which give undisturbed access between the saloon and cockpit, giving a great feeling of space.
The Bali 40 seems to be the popular size range at the moment and the 4 cabin version that are the charter companies preference, but really makes sense for an owners boat as the owners cabin is in many owners opinion, a big waste of space.
If you are looking for a catamaran within this size range in comparison to the two major brands, it would be a mistake to discount the Bali......
Well worth checking this one out!
