Presentation of the group
CATANA GROUP enjoys the benefit of nearly 40 years of experience in the design and manufacture of CATANA CATAMARANS and BALI CATAMARANS. The men and women of CATANA GROUP all share the same passion for the sea, for technology at the service of boating, and for the professions of the boatbuilding world. The passion for top-of-the-range yachting is the driving force behind the group, which, combined with know-how and a constant strive for quality, has led to the creation of an unrivalled industrial tool at the service of innovation.
A SOLID GROUP
Today, Catana Group counts 900 employees working across four sites: the historic headquarters at Canet-en-Roussillon is the largest site in terms of production, the shipyard at Marans, near La Rochelle, the woodwork shop in Rivesaltes, the exclusive supplier of interiors for all models, and the marina in Port-Pin-Rolland, near Toulon.
In 2003, Olivier Poncin saw the demand for catamarans and took an interest in the legendary Catana brand, which he went on to buy. He realised that the market for high performance catamarans could not financially support such a demanding yard. As always, his solution was to innovate. Faced with a certain level of timidity, Olivier Poncin implemented revolutionary concepts that changed the codes of boating: a common space between the saloon and the aft cockpit, a tilting door and an integral foredeck. In 2014, the first boat from BALI CATAMARANS was born, the BALI 4.5.
Today, the Catana-BALI Catamarans shipyard builds more than 300 boats a year. The bet has paid off, and the concept meets the needs of customers around the world.
CATANA CATAMARANS benefit from 40 years of experience. Known for their reliability and performance, CATANA’s boats are perfectly balanced, fast and light in weight, ensuring low drag. Their slender, inverted bows allow them to achieve even higher speeds. The interior is fitted out with equipment designed for lightness: the ultimate in comfort and energy savings.
With exceptional safety, CATANA CATAMARANS are easy to handle and their high-end level of comfort will carry you to all the seas of the world. Everything you need for fast and sustainable sailing across the oceans.
BALI Catamarans offers an innovative, unique concept that has revolutionised the world of catamarans. Thanks to the pivoting aft door and the rigid foredeck platform, BALI Catamarans embody openness: openness to life, openness to the four elements and the five senses. The large windows and the door to the forward cockpit offer a natural 360° panorama. Space is given utmost importance at BALI Catamarans: the forward cockpit and the increased area (achieved by the BALI door) are key assets that distinguish BALI among all the players in the market. At a glance, a BALI is instantly recognisable among its peers.
