2015 Balance 451

About This Boat

2015 Balance 451 Rendezvous Owner’s Version

Are you considering a serious blue water cruising catamaran? Do you want a vessel that can operate completely off-grid?  Then Rendezvous is the boat for you! You don’t have to choose between performance OR comfort with the Balance 451 - this boat has all that and more!

Rendezvous was designed and custom fitted for speed, with a large rig, top quality mainsail, screecher, jib, spinnaker and dagger boards.

The state of the art LiFePO4 battery system is light and provides ample power for all your needs A/C, microwave, induction cooktop, coffee maker, etc.  A custom solar array has been added for complete off grid capability.

You’ll find ample storage throughout the boat for long passages and off-the-grid living.  Anchor with confidence with an Lewmar CPX3 electric windlass, G4 stainless steel anchor chain and a Rocna anchor. 

Premium Raymarine navigation and monitoring systems keep you informed and on the right course.  The Raymarine auto-pilot has been upgraded from the standard model to the ACU-400 for more robust performance.

Even at first glance, you get a sense this boat is truly different - wave-piercing bows, aero dynamic sloped windows, carbon fiber bowsprit and retractable dagger boards. Stunning!
