The yachting sector is adapting to the health constraints resulting from the Covid epidemic and for Bali Catamarans, this adaptation involves the organisation of a Private Boat Show, aimed at individuals wishing to purchase a catamaran.

From 2nd to 4th July, Bali Catamarans opens its doors to yachtsmen and will present in exceptional conditions, a Catspace, the youngest of the range, for the very first time exhibited afloat, a Bali 4.8, a world premiere and the Bali 5.4, the flagship of the shipyard.

3 boats on display, including a world premiere and a world launch

The Catspace will be unveiled in a 4-cabin version, which stands out on the 40-foot catamaran market for its exceptional forward cabins, characterized by a transverse bed from which one can admire the sea through the vast hull window.

The Bali 4.8 will be presented in an owner's version: it offers a shipowner's hull, the starboard hull, the port hull accommodating 3 guest cabins: certainly a long distance cruising boat...

Finally, the Bali 5.4 is distinguished by its exceptional living space, worthy of a classic catamaran yacht of 60-65 feet !

Private visits of the boats and VIP reception

For Boris Compagnon, sales and marketing director of Catana Group, Les Rendez-Vous Bali have imposed themselves in their concept, due to the current situation, as he explains on Yachting Art: "The current health situation is pushing the nautical industry to think about new ways to welcome its customers. The rules of distancing in force in Europe make us anticipate a drop in the number of visitors to the autumn boat shows, while demand is still very strong. In this context, organising the Rendez-Vous Bali seemed to us to be the most appropriate way to welcome our European clients and prospects in the greatest comfort and safety. From 2 to 4 July, they will benefit from a VIP welcome at the shipyard, will be able to visit the boats during private tours, which are essential in order to respect the distance, will test the boat at the end of the day and will discover our construction workshops on this occasion".

In order to offer the utmost comfort to its guests, the shipyard has also set up partnerships with local hotels, which have implemented strict hygiene protocols for the disinfection of their rooms and suites.

Appointments planned in advance

In order to offer a privileged moment to its customers, while guaranteeing an optimum level of health safety, participation in the Rendez-Vous Bali is exclusively possible by appointment, through its dealer (list of dealers).

"Each of our guests will benefit from a VIP welcome at the construction site," says Boris Compagnon. "The principle of appointments allows us to welcome each family in the best possible way, giving them all the time and attention they need. It's the least we can do for people who trust us, who wish to discover our catamarans and who plan to live their passion for the sea and sailing on board our boats".
