Virtual Christening: Balance 526 "Ohana" goes to sea

When the global pandemic struck we decided last April to delay the launch and commissioning of the Balance 526 Ohana.

Her Canadian owners were no longer able to fly to South Africa to sail her home and we were concerned a South Africa delivery crew might get stuck in the Caribbean on arrival. The decision was therefore made to keep her under wraps in our second Saint Francis factory. It was a wise decision.

The good news is that the time finally came for Ohana to take to sea. A South African crew will now deliver her to the Caribbean over the next several weeks. The video here shows our best effort to provide her owners with a Virtual Christening at the Harbor in Saint Francis this past week.
