Carbon Cross, Carbon Cross + and Carbon XP
Check out Phoenix’s distinctive look above. Have you seen this on other Balance hulls? Wonder what it’s all about?
Every Balance 526, 580, 620 and 750 are hand-laminated and vacuum-bagged with closed cell foam core in full epoxy construction. Our 442 and 482s are also hand laminated and vacuum bagged with closed cell foam cores, using a combination of polyester inner-skin resin and vinylester outer-skin resin.
Because we use carbon in the high load areas of all our cats we call them Carbon Cross. On the catamarans we build with additional carbon enhancements (such as appendages, coach tops, flooring, etc.) we call them Carbon Cross +. On our 526 and larger models we also offer our hulls and decks in full carbon construction, our Carbon XP models.
