“Balance is the only company that designs and builds a great looking cat that sails extremely well, even when loaded up for cruising and is reasonable to maintain. It is so well designed, built and supported, I can’t ever imagine buying from another manufacturer”
Todd grew up sailing and racing Sunfishes and moved on to J-Boats after college and was a professional captain in his early 20’s.
Todd studied History at Colgate University and earned an MBA from Georgetown. Judy started a graphic design firm in 1993, Todd joined in 1996 and together they grew it into an internationally sought and successful agency that focuses on mature consumers.
Todd and Judy bought a 32’ wooden sloop in 1988 and sailed all through the Caribbean and up to New England. In 2016, they purchased a Nautitech 46 which they sailed over 10,000 miles in much more comfort and speed, but not fast enough!
“It probably doesn’t help that we keep getting bigger and faster boats, but Judy continues to step up to the challenge and is a great first mate!”
Then along came the Balance 526! Together, Todd and Judy are looking forward to revisiting some of their favorite cruising grounds and exploring new ones. On their short list are Nova Scotia, the Bahamas and over to Europe. In time they expect to head to the South Pacific.
“Having owned and maintained more than a dozen yachts, including a Hinkley, Oyster, J-boats, Swan and Nautitech, Balance is by far and away the best boat I have ever owned and sailed”
