Balance 482


The 482 was designed by Phillip Berman and Anton Du Toit and has already shown some remarkable performance in her initial seatrials. This catamaran is proving to be quick in all conditions, including upwind thanks to the daggerboards. The inverted bows lend the boat’s silhouette a very sporty look. The hulls and nacelle have plenty of windows, however the shipyard has decided to go for a coachroof with an overhang to protect the living area from the sun’s most vertical rays. The Versa-Helm system (a double helm thanks to an articulated steering wheel), which was already fitted to the 526 has obviously been included.
