The BALI 4.1 "Negroni", built in 2019 by the Catana Shipyard, has its homeport in Sicily, Portorosa. The 41 feet sailing catamaran of Sea La Vie Charter is characterised by a single cockpit / lounge area, entirely flush and free from bulkheads, accessible through an immense glass door folding on electric uprights. So in the blink of an eye you can switch from "Cozy" mode to "Lounge" mode, with a panoramic view of the sea. At the stern there is a comfortable sofa, very large, able to accommodate up to 5 people. Underneath it there is a large locker, a solution that also makes this area liveable and comfortable, actually increasing the space.
The two slightly squared aft platforms are small beaches on the sea, going up again we find immediately the new sofa to delimit the cockpit, protected by the extension of the fly-bridge. With the overhead door open you create a unique environment -an incredibly large cockpit.
Inside the catamaran Bali 4.1, what is striking is the continuity of the spaces, there is nothing that hinders the view from stern to bow. On the rear we find the cockpit with dining table for 10 people, opposite at the bow a sofa offers a comfortable place to relax. At the bow, the kitchen transverse to the hull, with the refrigerator column, is in direct connection with the bow cockpit thanks to a sliding window, really very large, which ensures brightness and air flow throughout the boat. On the opposite side of the kitchen there is a large chart table.
To access the cabins, you go down the stairs that lead to the side hulls. The descents are comfortable and spacious. The cabins are for each hull aft, with a double bed and forward with a double bed, as well as berth skipper and kids. There is also plenty of light here, thanks to the large skylights with blackout curtains and mosquito nets.
Climbing up and down to the bow, we find wide and well-protected passers-by. Here you reach an immense relaxation area consisting of a large sunbathing area, which replaces the classic net, and a fully furnished lounge. Here the shipyard has made the most of all the available space, making this area very comfortable and usable. Even on the fly-bridge, there is plenty of space: Two chaise lounges to the left of the wheelhouse and another sunbathing area behind the helmsman. From the helm we have all the manoeuvres collected and within reach and the visibility is good.
The sail plan of Bali 4.1 is simple and effective: a self-tacking jib of 33 square meters, and a mainsail of 50 square meters make it elementary to run this catamaran.
Portorosa, the homeport of "Negroni"
Marina di Portorosa (38° 07' 60" N, 15° 06' 72") is located opposite the Eolian Islands and is connected with custom transfers from the airports of Catania and Palermo.

The Eolian Islands offer unique and unmistakable scenery given by their volcanic origin. About a million years were born Alicudi and Filicudi, last emerged of the thirst sisters and still active today, Vulcano and Stromboli. The scenery is completed by Lipari, Salina famous for its wines and capers and the more fashionable Panarea.
