Bali 54ft - 2021

Windward 5.4

Yacht description

Windward 5.4 is the perfect catamaran for up to four couples. Lots of space both outside and below decks. The cabins have queen beds and ensuite bathrooms – the aft port cabin has a little more space with an additional entrance from the cockpit.

Bali catamarans have perfected the open plan aspect of their catamarans with a hydraulically lifting bulkhead between the cockpit and salon making the flow seamless. Add to this, the front opening door to the forward cockpit and you probably have as much lounging space as you have at home! In addition, there is an upstairs sky lounge offering 360-degree views and cool breezes, the ideal spot for enjoying sundowners.

Penny's personal opinion

Why book Windward 5.4 – GREAT DESIGN – These Bali catamarans have evolved to become one of the best charter yachts around. The cabins have great space and headroom but the biggest draw is the outside space, which is huge for a 54ft yacht. The innovative lifting wall enhances this openness, and you can really enjoy the feeling of being on the water.

    Please provide specific comments regarding your skipper and hostess.
    Wouts and Kelly are outstanding. I teared up when I left. We are new to sailing crewed charters and weren’t sure what to expect – but I never expected the level of service that they gave. Beginning with the very first day, they intuitively knew how much to hang out with us so that we didn’t feel alone but not so much that it felt intrusive. They would walk us to places so we knew where to go on times we were just with our family, but happily they also joined us on multiple occasions so it was a perfect blend. Honestly, I cannot imagine a more perfect crew. We had an amazing vacation. I have nothing negative to say in any way – I can’t even think of any constructive criticism. They were fantastic.

    Were the meals and beverages as you expected?
    They were way above what I expected. From the beginning spread, to breakfast and snacks, to the captain’s cocktail – superior presentation and quality.

    If you made any special requests were they met?
    100% and above. They decorated the boat for my 50th birthday and we enjoyed cake for breakfast (in addition to the amazing breakfast) – I teared up I was so surprised.

    Was this your first visit to the BVI?
    Yes

    Would you recommend this yacht for a charter vacation?
    Yes

    Would you recommend Best of BVI Boats?
    Yes – Penny Compton is a treasure. I asked a TON of questions and she answered each one no matter how often. She’s very responsive and an awesome person to work with. I wasn’t sure if we would do a sailing trip for my 50th. In part, she’s the reason we chose to move forward with this trip.

  • Best vacation ever – leaving the stresses of life behind! Wouts and Kelly are amazing humans and we are so thankful for them keeping our family safe while giving us the adventure of a lifetime. The places and exploration exceeded our imagination, the food was incredible, healthy, tasty – just amazing, but the company was the best! Thank you to Wouts and Kelly for sharing a bit of themselves with our family.

  • This was our first charter family vacation and wished we had done it sooner! It was the best family vacation we ever experienced. For the first time, as parents, we were not exhausted after the vacation for having to plan daily excursions and meals throughout the trip. Captain Wouts was incredible with our three teen boys. He kept them busy everyday. His patience and thoughtfulness with teaching the boys how to wakeboard was a highlight. His daily excursions were out of this world! He knew all the special spots and was able to get us in and out well before the tourist crowds. He was so kind and willing to answer all our yachting questions as we are planning on purchasing a similar boat when we retire. Chef/Crew Kelly was equally remarkable. Her food was out of this world! My picky boys cleaned their plate every single meal! She and Wouts kept our drinks full, bellies filled and memories over-flowing. By the end of the trip, they felt like family and it was hard to say goodbye. I cannot recommend this Crew enough for a family experience that will last a lifetime!

  • Thanks to Captain Wouts and Chef Kelly for an awesome week and experience! From the first day they both made us feel like we were family. The trip would not have been the same with anyone else. They made the kids feel comfortable and like family as well. It was such a pleasure getting to know them both and we look forward to seeing them again.

  • Capt Wouts and Chef Kelly are far better than we could’ve ever imagined. They are true professionals and have the absolute best personalities a charter guest could ask for. They’re excellent with children and wise beyond their years. Kelly is an amazing chef, she went so far beyond our expectations. She’s also a great crew member when Capt Wouts needed assistance with the anchor, dinghy, etc. This trip, and most importantly the crew made this vacation worth every penny.
