“The balista was an ancient missile weapon that launched a large projectile at a distant target. Developed from earlier Greek weapons, it was during the conquest of the Roman Empire that the balista proved its worth many times in sieges and battles, on sea and on land”
Launched in 2013 and with a recently completed refit, BALISTA, offers the very best in luxury on the water. Adorned with beautiful Italian woodwork, stunning marble and plush furnishings with a cool leather trim, BALISTA ensures luxury and class is abundant. The main salon and skylounge are spaces to relax and socialize, offering ample seating as well as a piano and bar in the main salon. A standout feature is the yacht’s Asian inspired sliding doors in the skylounge that open to reveal a drop-down balcony. This blurs the lines between inside and out as well as provides a private escape.
Charter yacht BALISTA welcomes 12 guests in the utmost comfort of six sumptuous staterooms. The yacht’s main deck master suite is the perfect retreat offering plush comfort and ample natural light from large windows. It features a king-size bed, office and his-and-hers en-suite baths with a soaking tub on her side and a shower on his. The VIP stateroom is able to be a full-beam stateroom with a lounge or split into two separate staterooms with a pull-out couch, ideal for kids. The yacht also offers two double-bed staterooms and two twin-bed staterooms. Each stateroom is complete with 42-inch TVs and en-suite bath with rain shower.
