Balance Catamarans is pleased to announce the launch of Balance 526 Hull #6 "Alani" in Cape Town, South Africa.

"Alani" is looking truly amazing with her sharp, wave piercing bows, and her eye-catching orange hulls. Following a celebratory launch party, the owners will set sail for Grenada where she will remain for the winter.

"We couldn't be happier to have 'Alani' on the water," said Phillip Berman, Balance Catamarans founder. "She is that perfect balance of high performance and live-ability and the feeling of satisfaction we get from each new launch is truly enormous."

With Balance 526 Hulls #7 and #8 expected to launch later in 2019, and hulls #9 and #10 following suit in early 2020, it is going to be an exciting year for Balance Catamarans in South Africa.

"We never wanted to grow the company too fast and lose touch with why we started in the first place," said Berman, "which was to truly build the finest performance voyaging catamarans on the water for a handful of appreciative customers. We approach each boat as a work of art, but are palpably aware that our customers are risking their lives sailing the products we build. It is one thing to build fast and beautiful catamarans, but in the end they must be built robustly enough to withstand the worst weather nature can deliver."

With her sharp, wave piercing bows, and her beautiful eye-catching orange hulls, she is sure to turn heads everywhere she goes. We are so excited for her new owners as they prepare to set sail, and extremely proud of our team is South Africa for continuing to produce the finest performance voyaging catamaran ever built.
