Fresh from the drawing board of Anton Du Toit and Phillip Berman comes the Balance 526, an all epoxy, e-glass, carbon reinforced high performance voyaging catamaran of the highest quality. This is the first Balance 526 to come to the brokerage market. Owner of the boat has decided he wants an even bigger one to house a full time crew.
Ondine is a Balance 526 XP model, sporting every costly option, go fast, and cruising equipment money can buy. She has an all carbon rig, mast and boom, carbon longeron, beam, bowsprit, six electric winches, a hydraulic screecher furler, membrane high performance sails, a total lithium ion house battery system, water maker, generator, full air conditioning, washer and dryer, ice maker, two satellite communication systems, etc. Replacement value for Ondine with her current equipment and delivery would approach 2 million dollars. Please examine her extensive inventory and you will see that it is quite impossible to specify a performance yacht with finer equipment.
Fast, comfortable, with a build quality that cannot be compared to any other.
NOT FOR SALE IN U.S. WATERS TO A U.S. RESIDENT UNLESS DUTY PAID.
