Bella Description

The Bali 4.8 design was new to the market in 2020 and provided a fresh approach to sailing. The design is revolutionary in how space is accessed, with deliberate attention to flow and open space. It succeeds in producing a scale that feels less like a boat, and more like an upscale floating condominium. Bali catamarans are known and appreciated for their unparalleled success in blending luxury, space, and performance; producing a sailing experience that is unparalleled. This new design further capitalizes on that reputation with the advent of the “Bali garage door” that is the centerpiece of the yacht. It allows for the aft wall of the yacht to simply disappear, opening up the back of the yacht to an unobstructed view of paradise. This also affords indoor/outdoor dining options and gives the ever- present Caribbean breeze ample opportunity to make its way through the yacht with ease. With her solid foredeck gone are the forward trampolines, replaced by a large relaxing lounge area complete with cushions for sunbathing. A full- sized door provides access directly from the lounge area into the salon, allowing free movement through the yacht. A walk up to the flybridge unveils a seating area perfect for cocktails and taking in sunsets. There is also another area for sunbathing on the flybridge where you can take in the sights of the islands from the highest vantage point on the yacht. The Bali open space design is further complimented by the superior outfit of Bella. No detail has been left unnoticed from the fine linens, pillows and throws to the wine glasses, serving and flatware that make every day feel luxurious. She has been stocked full with every appliance and kitchen accessory to allow the chef to fully showcase the mastery of their art. And the water toys abound, allowing guests to fully experience all the Caribbean has to offer, both in and out of the water. Bella will accommodate 6 charter guests in 2 spacious queen cabins and 1 sprawling owners suite master cabin for those who desire more space. She has solar panels, air conditioning, water maker, ice maker, full-sized refrigerator, a fully customizable menu, Caribbean made eco-friendly and reef safe toiletries, a bar stocked to guest preference, coffee/espresso machine, rendezvous scuba diving, snorkeling gear, underwater scooters, sub wing, wakeboard, stand up paddle board / kayak, towable water tube, 10 ft. floating dock, pool noodles, fishing gear, board and card games, television in the salon, Fusion 3 Bluetooth enabled sound system and Bella giveaways.

JAMES

James grew up in the British countryside on a farm. From a young age he was obsessed with anything and everything mechanical. He spent summers in his father´s Irish coastal hometown of Dungarvan and it was there that he developed a love for the ocean.

He started a career in the luxury eyewear industry working for brands such as TAG Heuer and Calvin Klein, but eventually his love for the ocean won out and drew him toward a career in the yachting industry. He has worked for two years now as a charter captain in various locations including Croatia and French Polynesia.
