BALISTA was built by Cantieri di Pisa in 2013 and refitted in 2019. This luxury yacht showcases desirable amenities and a versatile layout that will impress the most discerning owners.

BALISTA has a 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 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. The yacht’s main deck aft has another lounging area.

The luxury yacht has low original hours and had her generators rebuilt in 2019. 


Built in 2013 by Cantieri di Pisa, Balista has fiberglass hull and superstructure, with teak decks.

BALISTA has recently undergone a major interior and mechanical refit in the fall of 2019 and is now highly desired within the charter market.  Her renown interior was originally dessigned by Mark Berryman and recently updated by Curtis House with Louis Anthony and Associates.
This is a perfect opportunity for a buyer to purchase a low hour turn key yacht along with a successful charter business.  
Please inquire to receive the full details of the refit and her upcoming charter revenue scheduled for 2020.  

Not for sale or charter to US residents while in US waters.
