The BALI world

In 2003, Olivier Poncin sensed the demand for catamaran boats and bought the legendary Catana brand. A few years later, he realized that the “blue water” catamaran market was too small and did not provide the desired financial visibility. To meet the challenge, he imagined a concept that revolutionized the codes of sailing: a common space between the saloon and the aft cockpit, a tilting door and an integrated foredeck. In September 2014, the first BALI CATAMARAN, the BALI 4.5 was launched, followed just a few weeks later by the BALI 4.3. BALI Catamarans offers an innovative, unique concept that has revolutionised the world of catamarans. Thanks to the pivoting aft door and the rigid foredeck platform, BALI Catamarans embody openness: openness to life, openness to the four elements and the five senses. The large windows and the door to the forward cockpit offer a natural 360° panorama. Space is given utmost importance at BALI Catamarans: the forward cockpit and the increased area (achieved by the BALI door) are key assets that distinguish BALI among all the players in the market. Today, the Catana-BALI Catamarans shipyard builds over 300 boats a year. The Group counts 1,300 employees working on three boat production sites based in Canet-en-Roussillon in the South of France, the company's historic headquarters; in Marans, near La Rochelle on the Atlantic coast; and in El Haouaria (Cap Bon, Tunisia). The Group is also equipped with an industrial joinery shop in Rivesaltes (on the Mediterranean coast), which allows the Group to be fully self-sufficient in the manufacture of its furniture. The Group also has a “Services” base, Port Pin Rolland, located in the marina at Saint Mandrier, near Toulon, also in the South of France.
