With the Bali Catsmart, Bali Catamarans enters the 38-foot catamaran market, a strategic segment, with an amazing offer that seems to check all the boxes to become a high-volume model!

In just a few years, Bali Catamarans, Catana Group’s brand of pleasure catamarans, has become one of the market leaders. In the first half of 2022, the French shipyard, whose headquarters are based in Canet en Roussillon, posted a 45% growth in sales to 70 million euros. It is in this buoyant context that Bali announces the launch of a 38-foot boat, the Bali Catsmart.

The Bali Catsmart reinforces a range strong of 6 models, with the Bali Catspace, Bali 4.2, Bali 4.4, Bali 4.6, Bali 4.8 and Bali 5.4!

If the Bali Catsmart takes the main features of the Bali, with the walkaround concept, the decked bow and the cockpit saloon opening or closing on the sea with a tilting door, it differs by the absence of flybridge and the integration of 2 steering wheels at the rear of the hulls, for a key word: pleasure at the helm!

As for the layout, the 2-suite version of the Bali Catsmart is unique on the market and will seduce owners!

We set out from the port of La Rochelle with a north-easterly wind of 8 to 15 knots, and a very light chop.
The very early-season conditions weren’t that great: freezing temperatures, thick fog and frost… but inside, with the BALI door closed, the temperature in the saloon/ galley area was much more agreeable. We were comfortably installed inside, but with the same sense ofspace and openness.
