BABALÚ is a 5.4ft Bali sailing catamaran with luxury accommodations for 10 guests.

BABALÚ is a Bali 5.4 which 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 an unparalleled sailing experience. This new design further capitalizes on that reputation with the advent of the “Bali garage door” which 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.

BABALÚ’s open space design is further complimented by the superior outfit and aftermarket items available on Babalú. No detail has been left unnoticed from the fine linens to the serving and flatware and wine glasses that make every meal feel luxurious. Babalú will accommodate 10 charter guests in 5 queen cabins.

Your Crew

CAPTAIN LEFTERIS

Lefteris was born in 1989 in Crete island. Among other certificates, he holds the MCA/RYA certificate of Competence Yacht Master Ocean for Power & Sailing vessels, Captain’s Medical Care, and PADI Dive Master certificate. Lefteris could not think of a life away from the sea, so he was always seeking to combine his job with it. When he was younger he started working as a windsurfing instructor in Crete, then he continued as a skipper on various commercial sailing vessels and since then he has worked both on sailing yachts/catamarans and motor yachts in Greece. During his spare time, if he is not sailing, she likes cycling, traveling, windsurfing, taking photographs, and paragliding. Also, he is a volunteer fireman. Apart from Greek he also speaks English. He is always ready to welcome his guests on board to ensure an unforgettable experience and show the most beautiful hotspots of Greek islands!

CHEF VICKY

Vicky is an outgoing individual born in Greece. For the last few years, she has been working on board crewed catamarans as a Cook. She loves cooking Greek cuisine and always strives to learn more about new techniques. Vicky has sailing knowledge as well so she is an asset for BABALU’s team! She knows how to prepare coffee and cocktails while all the guests enjoy her genuinely positive personality. If she has some free time she prefers riding her horse or reading literature. Vicky also enjoys cinema and is eco-conscious. Cooking is her true passion, but she is also studying Psychology at Panteion University in Athens. She speaks Greek and English.

STEWARDESS EMILIA

Emilia is half Greek half Italian. She is a young professional who has studied at the Technical Institute for Hotel Hospitality in Bari and also got a Diploma in Economy & Administration in Tourism. Emilia started her career in the Tourism industry as a breakfast hostess, then she worked in Guest relations for daily cruises. Being an enthusiast about the sea she decided that life on board is what will allow her to combine her passion with her job, so in 2022 she joined the industry. Now, Emilia is on board BABALU completing her amazing team of three! She is adaptable, dedicated to what she’s doing, and has outstanding communication skills. Emilia speaks English, Italian, and Greek.

Amazing Experience

What an amazing experience we had on the Babalu! From the beginning, the crew made sure we had a great time from boarding in Athens to the many islands that the kids named for themselves. We had a wonderful experience on each island. The water was beautiful. Snorkeling was awesome. Can’t say enough about the food!! Each meal seemed to be better than the last. Lots of stories were told. Lots of liquids drank! What happened in Greece stays in Greece 😊Thank you Captain and crew for making this experience better than expected! I appreciate you making us feel like family.

What a week on the beautiful Babalu!! It far exceeded our expectations and it was an experience we will never forget.  Thank you for being such an amazing captain and for all the time you spent tubing and skiing with us. Chef, your food was incredible – you took us on a culinary tour and not just a sailing trip. Thank you for keeping Babalu so beautiful for us, and for always being there to help us out with whatever we're doing never without a smile.
