The range of Balance Catamarans is built by the well-known Paarman brothers at Nexus Yachts in Cape St Francis on the East Coast of South Africa. The inspiration for the Balance Catamaran arose from a passion to design and build the finest performance voyaging catamarans for a couple or small family, who want to voyage in speed and comfort yet carry significant cruising payloads. The Balance will obtain great top speeds, fully laden, without being hard-pressed. She is strong and designed to stand up to very bad weather, but she is also light. She is built from a combination of E-glass, carbon fibre, Closed Cell Foam, composite bulkheads, and the entire laminate structure is epoxy. She has fully retractable dagger boards and is designed for short-handed sailing in comfort and safety. Her lines are elegant and gracious, with a luxurious yet practical and comfortable interior. The aft cockpit and saloon floors are on the same level which creates a spacious entertainment area and provides great visibility in all directions.
