New 2023 build! The Bali 5.4 is a ´Multihull of the Year´ award-winning catamaran. The design was new to the market in 2019 and provided a fresh approach to sailing. It is revolutionary in how space is accessed, with deliberate attention to flow and open space and 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 and aftermarket items available on Lola. 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. Lola will accommodate 8 charter quests in 3 spacious queen cabins and 1 sprawling master cabin for those who desire more space. She is a brand new 2023 sailing catamaran with teak, hard top, hydraulic lift, solar panels, air conditioning, water maker, ice maker, full sized refrigerator, a fully customizable menu, Caribbean made ecofriendly and reef safe toiletries, a bar stocked to guest preference, coffee/espresso machine, rendezvous scuba diving, snorkeling gear, underwater scooters, wakeboard, stand up paddle board, 10 ft. floating dock, pool noodles, fishing gear, board and card games, television in the salon, Fusion 3 Bluetooth enabled sound system and Lola giveaways.

Hugo´s passion for sailing and the ocean grew stronger after school, so he headed to the South of France to work on luxury Superyachts. At 18, he was selected and sponsored to race across the Atlantic being the youngest crew in the fleet. This is when Hugo realized his true calling. He completed his Yacht Masters amongst other qualifications with the dream of becoming a captain.
Hugo has at present, worked as Skipper and 1st Mate on luxury yachts of up to 100ft. From sailing charters to sea-life safari tours - he´s been sailing in some of the most beautiful and exotic locations around the world. After completing his second crossing to Antigua, he is currently obtaining his Ocean Master.

Lola Guest Reviews
The both of you will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
Hugo & Judith
This trip was a blessing in so many ways. The adventure, sight, food and memories made were some of the highlights expected coming into this trip. You two were put in our paths for a reason. The love and passion that you showed with us was amazing. Tiffany and I are blessed in so many ways, but you two have enriched those blessings tenfold this week. We have shared so many laughs and laughed so hard we cried. You two are so much fun to be around. Our group has prayed for both of you our entire trips and we will continue to pray for you, your safety and that you will continue to share your love and passion with others.
Hugo, your knowledge of the boat, islands and local culture amazed us.
Judith, Your ability to prepare the most amazing meals in a short period of time in a small kitchen is truly inspirational.
The both of you will forever hold a special place in our hearts. Thank you both for sharing your love and passion with us.
Love, Jon + Tiffany

Thank you for making this trip the best trip ever.
Hugo and Judith,
You have given us so many memories, we loved breakfast on the beach. The amazing stops/ports just when we thought we had a favorite stop, you surprised us. The water sports and snorkeling, the meals were amazing. Not having a worry in the world makes a vacation. Everything was taken care of. The ice coffees and cocktails to start the day and end it. Thank you for making this trip the best trip ever. Thank you for keeping our family safe. You’re the best you always have a place to stay in the States.

Of all the trips we have been on, this one is at the top!
Hugo and Judith,
thank you both for such an amazing week. Of all the trips we have been on, this one is at the top! Your graciousness and hospitality are first class. Having y’all hang out with us on and off the boat really make it a good time. This is our happy place and you both hold a place in our hearts and memories here. There are countless laughs and memories that made this week! Your knowledge and willingness to explain things about sailing is very appreciated Hugo. Also your sense of humor and cutting up with us was great. Judith, your cooking and recipes were all over the top. Definitely 5 star meal.s You gave me some new ideas for dishes to make for Traci and our kids!
Oh yeah, can’t forget about the cocktail of the day, they were all amazing! And thank you both for playing five second rule with us. It was so much fun!! Sorry we had to beat you both at Tipsy’s on the ring game, hahaha!
We pray for gods blessing and favor for both of you in your future ventures.
James + Traci
Best cruise and crew of my seven BVI charters! Thank you!!
Simply awesome! We had a wonderful time. Thanks to our fantastic crew!
Merritt & Newborn, NC
Pure perfection! Everything was amazing! You even ordered up our request for nice weather and (almost) always smooth seas. This was the most unforgettable trip - the food you made was truly 5 star, but the presentation was equally stunning. Great captain! We felt truly cared for with your kind and knowledgeable personality. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you´d like to visit the Midwest and stay at our home. Sorry my cooking will not come close to yours. We would love to sail with you again soon.
Karen & Bruce
Thank you both for this wonderful experience.
The final day has arrived sadly! Thank you both for this wonderful experience. It is memorable for the things I(Greg) learned about sailing, for the beautiful places we visited, but mostly for the warmth & welcoming felt from you both. My only regret is the 5-6 pounds I gained not being able to turn down a morsel of the incredible cuisine offered. Thank you and smooth sailing through life!
-Greg & Sandy
Everything was perfect!
