Balance Catamarans are committed to building semi-custom, hand-crafted, bespoke yachts of exceptional quality. Our customers are mainly drawn from the ranks of serious voyagers, racers, and explorers. They come to us with a lifetime of experience and appreciate a build partner who is prepared to listen to them, work with them, to fabricate a dream catamaran like no other. When ordering a new yacht our customers start with a standard specification sheet that carefully outlines what we provide for our base price. They may then either elect to pick specific equipment packages we have assembled to achieve various levels of comfort, self sufficiency, or performance, or may option out their catamaran on an entirely custom, a la carte basis.
Our 451, 486, 526, 640 and 740 models are each built using existing factory hull, deck, and coach roof tooling. Some of our models are built by modifying these existing tools. The 586 XP, for example, is a stretched, higher speed version of the Balance 526, just as the 640 XP is a longer, leaner, higher speed version of the 601.
Balance builds serious catamarans for serious sailors. Each and every yacht we craft is a unique work of art.
“The #1 hull that I inspected was spray finished in a gray blue color and the fairing quality was flawless, not a single bump in her shiny blue hulls. It is hard to imagine the amount of time it took to fabricate tooling that allowed for this, or the amount of time spent fairing her to gain such a finish.”
“Through a rare mix of world-class talent in building composite structures and labor rates that allow a builder to competitively market a 25,000-man-hour product, Balance has created a beautiful vessel.”
“Judging by the workmanship I examined, the 451 is first class in every respect.”
