Powered with MTU 16V4000's she comfortably cruises at 20 knots and is capable of speeds up to 26 knots. Balista underwent a major refit with no expenses spared in the fall of 2019 and 2020. She is a highly desirable charter yacht with a consistently strong revenue stream. 

  • Balista has a new stunning interior. Offering a welcoming ambiance, the interior is adorned with beautiful Italian woodwork, stunning marble, and plush furnishings with a cool leather trim. Both the main salon and skylounge provide the perfect settings for hosting guests and unwinding. If seeking a private escape, the fold-out balconies off both sides of the skylounge are ideal. With sliding Asian inspired doors, the balconies also blur the lines between inside and out.


    Balista accommodates up to 14 guests in seven staterooms. The main deck master suite is beautifully decorated and features a king-size bed, private office, and his-and-hers en-suite baths. The VIP stateroom offers versatility; it can either be a full-beam stateroom with a lounge or converted to two staterooms. The yacht also has two double-bed staterooms and two twin-bed staterooms.

    Balista's vast outdoor living spaces offer options for alfresco dining and lounging. The sundeck features sun loungers aft, a Jacuzzi in the middle, and U-shaped seating under umbrellas and a bar forward. On the skylounge aft is alfresco dining and lounging.
