The dream matures……

Irina and Barry are in the planning stage of a life changing adventure aboard the 43 foot Catana Bali Catamaran  named Pearl Bali.

The dream is becoming reality with the catamaran having been completed at the Catana factory in Marans, near La Rochelle, France. Pearl Bali was launched at  La Rochelle on Monday 14th March 2016, and on Friday 18th March she sailed to Canet-en-Roussillon near Perpignan prior to been shown at the International Multihull Boat Show at La Grande Motte, France, 13th to 17th April 2016.

We would like to thank Ed Underwood of Robert Underwood Multihulls for assisting us with the purchase.

Over the coming months Irina and I will develop this site and we will launch it Summer 2016 whilst we prepare Pearl Bali for her maiden Atlantic Crossing, from Grand Caneria to St Lucia, after collecting her in Gibraltar and sailing her to the Canaries via the coast of Morocco.

Here is a link to a nice You Tube video of a Bali 4.3 sailing near La Rochelle (French language).
