Bali 4.5

BALI 4.5 by Catana

The BALI 4.5 by Catana will be featured at the Miami Sailboat Show in February 2015. We have received the latest pictures from Catana and sailors are very impressed with this new addition to the company. With the arrival of the new BALI Catamarans, the Catana Group is positioning itself as a front-row player in the cruising catamaran market. Here are a few of the high points to look out for: SLIDESHOW & FULL REVIEW by Multihulls World Magazine

- No more unprotected stern mounted steering. The bulkhead mounted steering is new for Catana.

- No daggerboards. This makes it much easier to sail for a bigger market of cruisers.

- Solid foredeck provides the biggest and most comfortable cockpit area of any of it's competition.

Saba 50 sailing catamaran

Fountaine Pajot SABA 50 Sailing Catamaran Review

The SABA 50 is the biggest sailing catamaran of the Fountaine Pajot core sailing range before the flagship range, the Sanya 57 and the Victoria 67. Designed by the naval architect Olivier Racoupeau, the Saba 50 has the same excellent optimization of space and weight as the highly successful sistership, Helia 44. The designers also paid the same special attention to comfort, elegance and performance and the result is quite simply a beautiful sailing catamaran that sails remarkably well and is priced at +/- 593,000 Euro base price, well below the main competitors.

Once cured, DrSails is pliable and flexible. The glue can be used on sailcloth, fiberglass, carbon, Kevlar, metal, wood and neoprene. Its easy to apply with the supplied mixing nozzle.

 MagicEzy Chip FixThis innovative product was developed by MagicEzy CEO Warwick David Lindsay, It is designed to easily fix scratches in gelcoat with little skill or effort. This makes repairs as simple as filling the damage, smooth the area, and letting it dry. The result is an effective, water-resistant, permanent surface repair that can be sanded and drilled.  “Repairing cosmetic damage to fiberglass boat surfaces has traditionally been a difficult, messy and time consuming job — and the results were often poor,” said Lindsay. “My 30 years refining automotive touch-up systems told me that there had to be a better way.” MagicEzy was born.
