About this Balance 690 Day Charter
The Balance 690 is a purpose built day charter catamaran, certified to carry 150 passengers on both upper and lower deck dance floors. She is built in epoxy and e-glass and designed for the rough, daily use and abuse that any dedicated day charter cat experiences.
The Balance 690 is foam core, e-glass, carbon reinforced and only epoxy resins are used in her layup. She has two heads, a large bar, and a dedicated piloting station for professional operations.
She can be built in a tall rigged version to sail swiftly with 150 passengers, or with a shorter rig and larger engines for tours that require specific on time arrivals and departures.
Founded by World Champion catamaran racer and author Phillip Berman, Balance Day Charter Catamarans are crafted from the years we have spent working for a range of our day charter customers in Hawaii, Barbados, St. Lucia and the Virgin Islands.
After managing the sale of hundreds of catamarans over the past decade – new and used – we’ve learned how day catamarans are built, how they break and fall apart, how they sail in the most dangerous conditions, which systems tend to work and fail, and how they are “really” used by charter operators and their customers.
We’ve concluded that the day catamarans currently offered by our primary competitors are overpriced and not built robustly enough for the daily abuse a true day charter catamaran experiences.
Balance day charter catamarans result directly from the enormous fund of experience we have gained through working with charter operators for over two decades. There really is no substitute for experience and the direct relationships we have had with charter operators has given us the invaluable feedback we’ve relied upon in the design of each Balance day charter catamaran that we build. We build day charter cats in a range of sizes and prices to serve the needs of a wide variety of charter operators.
Balance Catamarans was founded in 2012 and has launched four 60 footers, nine 45 footers, six 52 footers, and one 76 footer. Our catamarans are sailing on every major ocean in the world and have met with critical praise by every major yachting publication.
