Bali 5.4 Fundamentals: Our New Cruising Catamaran

We Investigate The CONTROVERSIAL Bali Design Concepts

We bought a new Bali 5.4 Catamaran and will take possession in October 2019! Exciting news, right? Some people are a little perplexed, especially since everybody knows that we love our current catamaran, a Lagoon 450S. It is, in our opinion one of the best sailing catamarans in this size range for live aboard. So, why change?

When we first looked at buying a new catamaran three years ago to place in a Yacht Business Program, we had three competitors in our size and price range; the Lagoon 450S, FP Helia 44 and Bali 4.5. Each had good and not so great qualities but we ultimately settled on the Lagoon 450S. It ticked a lot of the boxes for us at the time and for three years we lived and worked aboard Zuri, sailed 6000 NM, visited exotic locations like Cuba, raced in several regattas, and hosted two catamaran rendezvous events in the Bahamas from her. We had a great time and loved traveling while working on Zuri.
