Balance Catamarans

The Story

The Balance 751 is a ultra high performance world voyaging catamaran made custom to achieve our customers exact needs. She will be the fastest performance cruising catamaran ever built in this size range that is still capable of blue water voyaging to distant locations. She will easily average 14 to 16 knots over 24 hour periods and exceed 25 knots. Her long fine hulls, forward raked wave piercing bows and low swept rig give her an aggressive profile that translates into real speed. At the same time her interior is luxurious and comfortable for a high performance yacht of her size. All e-glass, epoxy, foam core, heavily carbon reinforced in high load areas, she’s a state of the art performance cat for the sailor who will accept no compromise when it comes to speed. Prices for the 751 XP start at $2,899,000.



Base, sail away price for the Balance 740S begins at $2,700,000 FOB our South African Factory. The Balance 740 Flybridge was designed for one of our customers who said he wanted to have a very high performance catamaran but still wanted a fly bridge design to satisfy his family. The first Balance 740 Flybridge is currently under build and will be launched in 2016. As with all of our yachts, each is a semi-custom project to suit the exact needs of our customers. As with all of our catamarans she is made with E-glass, carbon, foam cores and epoxy resins. Nothing short of the best is used in her fabrication. Please contact us to discuss your needs and budget. All prices are FOB Cape Town, South Africa. For a full list of standard 740S equipment and a detailed options pricing list, please click here.
