Have you ever imagined yourself relaxing amidst the calm turquoise waters of the Mediterranean, while enjoying a delicious meal with friends, knowing that a refreshing dip in the sea is just four steps away? Have you ever dreamed of experiencing a night at sea, under an endless sky of stars, but cannot comprehend how someone could succumb to the confinements of a boat? Look no further and wish no longer because we have got the perfect holiday for you! This season, we are pleased to offer in our portfolio of yacht charters in Ibiza the 2015 Bali 43 catamaran- a vessel that truly captures the essence of bliss.
For decades, Catana has been famous for the fabrication of lightning fast regatta catamarans. Their ships were mostly used for competing, which meant comfort was the last thing on their mind when designing these boats. With time, it was noted that those who looked towards catamarans did so because of the luxury that comes with one. It was not a frequent find to see someone who bought catamarans with the desire to race it.
With this information at hand, Catana started looking towards the top catamaran sellers in the market – Lagoon, top of the list for luxury catamarans, being one of the main ones- and started to shift their focus. Recently, Bali was launched by Catana as their luxurious cruising model. Although heavier than and not as quick as a traditional Catana, they have designed it with a more live aboard touch. It is said that the Bali still has the spirit of the Catana, but now the comfort comes with it as well!
Interior of the Bali 43 boat for hire in Ibiza
With a length of 13 metres (43 feet) and a beam of 7 metres (23 feet), the central platform of this astonishing catamaran has a spacious living area of 30m2 that is entirely open and free of bulkhead. Surrounded by vast windows- most of them adjustable to open as you feel necessary- the interior of this magnificent catamaran receives a significant amount of fresh air and natural sunlight. Well known for its completely retractable large back window with the push of a button, this Bali 43 boat rental in Ibiza offers breathtaking panoramic views from anywhere in the lounge and galley.
Along with the leather cushioned sofas available for relaxing, the various hidden storage compartments, and the dining table that can accommodate up to eight people for a scrumptious lunch at sea, this Bali 43 provides a fully-equipped kitchen that will make you feel as if you never left land. The galley of this yacht hire in Ibiza offers the following:
- A 615-litre refrigerator and freezer that comes with an ice maker and a built-in chilled water dispenser.
- A water maker that provides 220 litres per hour.
- A trash compactor.
- A gas oven, gas burners, and a microwave for all our clients’ cooking needs.
- A dishwasher so you do not need to waste your time aboard cleaning dirty dishes and instead focus strictly on enjoying yourself.
- A coffee maker to start your morning off on the right foot!
Cabins of the Bali 43 Catana in Ibiza
For maximum comfort in this luxurious Bali 43 catamaran, we recommend that you do not surpass the total capacity of eight guests – not including the crew – for overnight stays. This grand catamaran offers two main double cabins along with two guest double cabins. All cabins provide an abundance of storage space to organize your belongings as you would at home, including a hanging closet in each. With windows in each cabin, and the ability to open them as you please, I’m sure the fresh air and natural sunlight will be pleasantly welcomed.
Private bathrooms and showers are also provided in each cabin on our Catana Bali 43. No need to worry, we have included clean sheets, pillows, towels, etc. with these splendid rooms for your use during your stay. To add to the list of reasons why you do not need to return to the port, you will also find a washing machine at your disposal in one of the main cabins.
Apart from the cabins inboard, there are two single cabins that will be used by our crew. The entrances to these single cabins are through a hatch found on the exterior of the boat. Needless to say, this allows our guests extra privacy during their holiday on board.
Exterior of the Catana 43 rental yacht in Ibiza
Although having the retractable large back window allows amazing comfort indoors, there is no reason to stay inside all day while the sun is calling your name! On this Bali 43, the traditional trampoline you find on most catamarans has been transformed into a sun deck with comfortable hammocks and tables to eat, providing you with a sunbathing area of 18m2. If you find yourself wanting to take a dip in the transparent waters, it will not be a problem. Our remarkable catamaran offers a stainless steel ladder that makes the sea easily accessible for you to enjoy.
The helm, which is located superior to the deck, comes fully-equipped with the latest technology for the captain’s sailing necessities. It is made so that all the sailing can be done directly from here. The repetition of autopilot is also found inside, meaning the skipper may also handle the yacht indoors. This upper area also contains mats for sunbathing and a bench for accompanying the skipper and taking in all the astonishing views the Mediterranean has to offer. I cannot imagine a better way to spend your summer days, can you?
As with any great week-long trip, we understand that luggage always tags along. Thankfully, our boat for charter in Ibiza has the solution. Not only is there plenty of storage space in the cabins and lounge, as mentioned previously, but the deck also provides compartments under the sunbathing cushions and a small storage hutch by the bow.
