Werner van Wyk Leads Warranty, Maintenance Center for Balance

We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Werner van Wyk as the new head of our Warranty and Maintenance Center overseeing both  the Caribbean and the East Coast of the USA.

Werner’s journey with Balance Catamarans began in 2012, when he joined the Balance Cape Town operation at the age of 19. His dedication and passion for the craft soon saw him progressing from factory work to becoming a mate on a custom 75 ft power catamaran.

Demonstrating exceptional skill and leadership, Werner eventually took on the role of captain, managing the vessel alongside his partner Angie, who later became his wife. The couple then expanded their horizons to the Seychelles, where they successfully ran and maintained a charter vessel fleet for several years.

Following the birth of their children, Werner and Angie decided to return to South Africa. Werner rejoined Balance Catamarans, contributing his expertise to final vessel fit-out, launch, sea trials, and handover, as well as service and maintenance of various larger custom vessels. Later he was named Head of Commissioning.

Now based permanently in Grenada, Werner will be overseeing off-site warranty and maintenance for Balance where his family will soon join him. 

“Werner’s extensive experience and deep-rooted connection with Balance Catamarans ensures that our clients will receive the highest standard of service and support,” added Balance Catamarans Cape Town GM Mark Delany. “We are confident that under his leadership, we will continue to grow and uphold our commitment to excellence.”
