This particular model is based in Marina Marlin in Cienfuegos in Cuba, w ith a typical yacht charter itinerary taking you across to Cayo Largo and around Isla de la Juventud.  En route you will be able to anchor at Cayo del Rosario, Cayo Campos, Cayo Matias, across the Golfo de Batabano and Cayo Flamenco.  For the minotiry of crews who decide to sail eastwards, your stopovers would include locations such Marina Trinidad, Cayo Breton and Cayo Zaza de Fuera. The BALI 4.5 charter yacht was developed as a new type of a boat for Catana clients who prefer lighter and faster sailing catamarans in the most popular 45' range, but crucially with the added benefits of improved living space, a spacious fly bridge and tailgate to increase the cockpit space.  Adding a few luxuries such as generators and  air con, but also maintaining the Catana’s legendary technology and know-how developed as a manufacturer of performance sailing catamarans, the shipyard has managed to launch a very popular competitor to the longstanding Lagoon 450 multihull range.

On the next day enjoy another fine day of casual sailing towards nearby Cayo Sal and dive into the beautiful Coral Reef to view numerous fishes, langouste and nurse sharks swimming around.  On the next day, you can aim for Cayo Largo, which is only a few hours away.  Here you can spend an extra day at Playa Sirena, one of the most beautiful beaches on the Cuban Southern coastline.  In the marina here you should provision too and hit the turtle aquarium on one of the days.  Cay Largo is a perfect location to enjoy a bit of an extra stay. In the coming days experience some exhilarating sailing by hitting Cayo Iguana and Cayo Ingles.  On your last days, upon returning to Cienfuegos yachting club, invite your club members to pay a visit to Jardin Botanico Soledad and hike on the hills of El Nicho.  Some parties will also like to visit Trinidad town as it is a UNESCO heritage location, while others will not want to miss out on National Park Cienaga de Zapata or the Topes de Collantes for a bother of Health Tourism experience.
