Balista is a 46.57 metre planing motor yacht built by the Italian shipyard Cantieri di Pisa. Built in 2013, she was nominated for the prestigious World Superyacht Awards in 2014.

Balista’s stunning exterior was designed by Carlo Galeazzi. The outdoor spaces have been designed to offer a variety of al fresco dining, relaxation and entertaining areas, as well as a sundeck Jacuzzi, open air barbecue, bar and beach club.
