Fresh from the drawing board of Kiwi naval architect Roger Hill and multihull author and designer Phillip Berman comes the Balance 451, a blue-water performance cruising catamaran designed and built to restore balance to the catamaran universe.
If you’ve been frustrated by the sailing performance of the current crop of production charter cats, or displeased with the cramped and uninviting living spaces of the racers, the Balance 451 is the catamaran for you. She is designed to strike the ideal balance between comfort at anchor and performance underway. She’s fast, strong, safe, extremely comfortable to live on, simple to operate, and easy to maintain and sustain.
Base, sail away price for the Balance 451 begins at $470,000 FOB our China factory. A fully cruise equipped model runs approximately $630,000 FOB our China factory.

“The wind was out of the northeast, building a nice chop to be slived open by the 451’s wave piercing bows. The result-a hell of a sail…The Balance 451 does not disappoint.”Adam Cort
