S/V Pearl Bali is a Rio Dulce based 2016 Bali 4.3 Catamaran For Sale By Owner
This catamaran owner requires financial settlement only. No trades.
This seller is open to offers via CatamaranSite escrow.

S/V Pearl Bali is a 2016, 43 foot, Catana Bali 4.3 Catamaran for sale by its original owner. She is the much sought after 3 cabin, 2 heads layout boat, with the port side owners cabin featuring a large double berth, office space, storage, twin basin bathroom and walk in shower. She has never been chartered nor suffered from any Hurricane Damage. This Bali was built and launched in La Rochelle, France, before Catana opened the overseas factories that have had build quality issues.

The BALI Catamarans are the result of the R&D department of the CATANA shipyard, a legendary brand renowned for its high-performance and top-of-the-range catamarans. The BALI line of catamarans are known and appreciated for their rigid front cockpits with lounge and sunbathing areas, and the large tilt-and-turn door and sliding windows as well as  its vast, unhindered interior and exterior living spaces.

The BALI’s behavior under sail is seaworthy and comfortable, and has been acknowledged by all nautical journalists. Thanks to their fine-entry bows, Bali catamarans perform very well under sail, and have nothing to fear from their competitors.

The BALI 4.3, once again breaking away from other boats of the same size on the market, offers a deck area of 79.2 m² (852 sq ft), meaning around 10% more than competitors in the same category.

She is currently located in Guatemala. Viewings will be bookable until 18th April, and then from about October 2024, but might be able to arrange a viewing before October if buyer helps fund my flight back to the boat. After the Hurricane season is over we will be taking her to Mexico, and possibly Gulf coast of USA.

The limited photographs are from our phones, but most people buying a Bali already know what they look like, so if you would like photographs of any particular section the please ask.
