Currently actively cruising in South East Asia, this Blue Water Cruising Catamaran has just had a fresh coat of coppercoat and maintenance work in Pangkor Marina, in Malaysia.

With inboard airconditioning, watermaker, Lithium batteries and extensive solar, this is truly a GO ANYWHERE catamaran capable of extensive off grid cruising.

'Rendezvous' is a 2016 Balance 451, Roger Hill and Phillip Berman designed, owners version. She has an extensive inventory, and is a spacious and well maintained live aboard boat. Built not only for cruising, but for speed, she will be the perfect boat for luxury liveaboard, with enough room to entertain, or for cruising in company. There is plenty of storage space, and galley extras such as an induction cooktop, and microwave
The bonus of retractable dagger boards means you can maximise your sailing potential, and with a shallow draft, you can enter and explore lesser chartered waters.
Truely she is a ready to go, go anywhere boat with a great inventory and consistent upkeep and maintenance.
