REVIEWS Bali 4.3

Shipyard BALI CATAMARANS

Shipyard : BALI CATAMARANS / Length : 13.2m
Bali 4.3 catamaran

The “open space” cat!

First seen with the Nautitech Open 40 followed by the Bali 4.5, the idea of blending the nacelle and the cockpit into a single, and therefore enormous, volume has been implemented 100% aboard the Bali 4.3. What’s new is that the aft part of the coachroof pivots upwards and is housed under the roof itself. A new concept which is set to revolutionize cruising…

New concept, new range…

Seeking to join the wider market in the cruising catamaran sector - a market shared by big yards such as Lagoon, Leopard and Fountaine-Pajot - in 2014 the Catana Group launched their new range, christened Bali. Following the 4.5 and just ahead of the 4.0, we have the 4.3… whose development took a little longer than planned, due to the time spent adapting this model to its power version, the MY 43. Left behind are the Catana specifications: on the Bali you won’t find carbon at every stage of the build, nor load-carrying daggerboards. But the upshot is that you’ll find a price range similar to that of their “mass-producing” competitors. On the construction side, the yard has gone for molds in three sections, with a join in the bottom of the hull, interior half-hulls and the nacelle, for greater rigidity. All of this has been realized in PVC foam sandwich and polyester resin, not forgetting the special anti-osmosis gelcoat. The deck bracing is in plywood and monolithic resin and the bulkheads are in glued or laminated plywood. In short, nice work, simple and robust, though not the lightest.
