Bali and Dream Yacht Sales Unveil an Exciting Lineup
In advance of the Fall 2019 boat show season, Bali Catamarans and Dream Yacht Sales are on the move with an outstanding new lineup of catamarans. These exciting new sail and power catamarans are now available for sale, with groundbreaking design and innovations you won’t want to miss.
As a part of the legendary Catana Group with its 30 year history of world-class boatbuilding, Bali Catamarans has quickly become one of the most impressive and innovative brands in the catamaran market. Bali Catamarans was launched in 2014 with the production of a new line of fast, light and maneuverable cruising catamarans that could out-perform others in the market while remaining price competitive. Just five years later, Bali Catamaran is a world leader in sail and power multihulls from 40 to 70 feet.
To be sure, Catana’s extensive experience and French shipbuilding prowess are a great asset. But their radical departure from industry norms is perhaps Bali’s greatest strength, boldly delivering more than 15 new innovations in their very first launch.
Some of Bali Catamaran’s most unique and well-loved features include a rigid foredeck (no mesh trampoline) lending to a spacious more usable deck, extra large capacity water and fuel tanks, and an unmatched indoor/outdoor living experience thanks to a cutting-edge electric-powered pivoting saloon door.
Read on to learn about the latest Bali Catamarans to hit the market!
The BALI 5.4 Catamaran – Award-Winning Innovation
The largest of the Bali Catamarans range, the BALI 5.4 Open Space sail catamaran was designed with ergonomic living in mind. Wide open spaces reign on this 54-foot cruiser, from the massive interiors to the flybridge that easily accommodates a crowd for sunset cocktails with a view. The innovative foredeck makes space more usable by eliminating the traditional trampoline in favor of cushioned lounging and dining space. And perhaps the most distinguishing feature is a saloon that opens completely to the aft deck with the push of a button.
To sweeten the deal even further, Bali Catamarans makes this yacht available in a number of versions – with four-, five- and 6-cabin configurations to suit every owner.
Proving her worth almost immediately, the BALI 5.4 has already won Multihull World’s prestigious 2019 Multihull of the Year award. Request a private viewing.
Why one couple chose the new Bali 5.4 for their new yacht
Meet Estelle and Stephen Cockroft of Catamaran Guru, who recently purchased their Bali 5.4 and will take possession of her this October.
“The Bali catamaran range was of great interest to us right from its inception in 2014. It represents innovation and new concepts in sailing catamarans that is very intriguing, and we followed their progress closely over the years. In September 2018 we visited the Cannes boat show in France where the new Bali 5.4 was launched. We were very impressed and after carefully inspecting the boat for quality and features for the Catamaran Guru™ website video, we knew that this boat will be very popular. With the Catana performance pedigree as its foundation, this boat was a game changer for the industry in terms of innovation, use of space, livability and quality.” Read more on why they chose their new Bali 5.4.
The New BALI 4.8 Catamaran – A Cat Cruiser’s Dream
Like her big sister before her, the BALI 4.8 delivers outstanding design innovations, including the rigid forward deck and forward cockpit access from the saloon that Bali Catamarans has become known for. The 4.8 also introduces a luxurious cushioned relaxation area on the coachroof, perfect for leisurely afternoons in the sun.
The spacious interior of this 48-foot yacht is a crowd-pleaser with clean lines, cushioned seating areas, panoramic wraparound windows.

The Dream Yacht Charter Performance Program
Bali Catamarans are the perfect boat for our “Performance Program”. With this option, owners have complete freedom to choose their yacht model, floorplan layout, onboard equipment and base location. The owner and Dream Yacht Charter work together in the marketing and operation of the yacht with the owner receiving 65% of the charter revenue. Operating costs such as; insurance, dockage and maintenance are paid from the owners share of revenue. Many sailors find this to be an ideal arrangement, particularly those who aren’t able use a privately owned boat enough to justify the cost. Some yachts can cover an entire year of operating expenses with just 14-18 weeks of charter revenue annually. Leaving the rest of the year for either owner use time or additional charter activity which can generate positive equity.
May Qualify for US Tax Incentives
Performance Program owners may also qualify to further reduce the cost of yacht ownership through legal US tax incentives. It starts with a properly structured business plan with the new yacht as the primary capital asset necessary to operate a charter business and can be depreciated to suit the business owner’s goals. Recent changes to the tax code now allow deductions of up to $1,000,000. Since every owner’s situation is different, we always suggest consulting a CPA to analyze your specific circumstances and advise the best strategy to achieve the maximum savings allowed by law. Dream Yacht Charter can introduce you to an experienced CPA advisor and will stand ready to assist in the operation of your new yacht charter business.
