Bali 4.0 NEW 2016

The Balis are innovative cruising catamarans. After the 4.5 and the Bali 4.3, this year we will be seeing the Bali 4.0 at Paris. Just like its bigger sisters, the new catamaran in the range offers an open area between the cockpit and the saloon. A glazed door which folds away on electric rams allows the boat to go from the Cozy mode (closed) to the Lounge mode (open to the anchorage)... Once again on the 4.0 we find the forward cockpit – there is no trampoline on the Balis – and the very nice glazed doors which disappear totally to offer optimum ventilation.
