S/V Serenity is a 2016 Catana Bali 4.5 catamaran for sale by owner. This is a Bali 4.5 Owners Version which has never been chartered, and was Upgraded to 50HP Engines with Twin Disc 60 sail drives & new B&G Zeus 3 Electronics.

BALI 4.5 Open space is built in the Catana shipyards in France, using the best quality materials. Using the closed-cell PVC foam sandwich construction and hull fabrication by infusion ensure rigidity, durability, and weight reduction. Catana has combined speed with luxury to create a unique and revolutionary cruising catamaran in the BALI 4.5.

Her hull shape allows the boat to surf down waves easily and it has an above average bridgedeck clearance with good freeboard in the hull sections. The increased bridgedeck clearance and high freeboard results in a very quiet ride with minimal slamming.

Catana removed the trampolines, lengthened the forward cockpit to add a seating area and sunbathing area, added large vertical-sliding windows between the salon and forward cockpit with huge sliding doors onto the aft cockpit. This expands the living space literally from one end of the boat all the way to the other.

The Bali is well-thought-out as a cruising boat. It is clean, modern, functional and airy with easy to maintain surfaces. The “interactive” inside-outside living areas, all on one level, makes this 45ft catamaran feel huge. The owner’s version in the port hull has a big shower and separate head, desk, sofa, island bed and plenty of storage and hanging space. The storage, lighting and ventilation throughout the cabin are more than ample. The privacy door separates the owners cabin from the rest of the boat.

The design and the height of the nacelle allows a better passage through water and with that a higher level of comfort and safety. With the mast moved further aft there is more space for a larger self tacking jib and with the self tacking system, greater manoeuvrability. The sail area and weight ratio is the biggest in its class and that brings the performance that you would expect from a Catana catamaran.

A great forward cockpit with a seating area, removable tables and a great sundeck (18 m²) instead of the traditional trampoline. An aft cockpit with a seating area, LED lights and a foldable table. An additional sundeck on the coach roof.

Comfort: enjoy the best of what cruising has to offer a unique freshness of the saloon with large, fully retractable windows exceptional amount of daylight with a panoramic view from the saloon equipment level that will satisfy the most demanding sailors elegant design and interior décor arranged to provide you with a stay that is as pleasant as your own home.
