The Paarman family of Cape St Francis are to boatbuilding what boerewors is to braaivleis. And the footprint just got bigger, with the appointment of Dean Paarman as Balance’s director of multimedia and community enrichment.

Paarman, who has been based in Portugal for several years, is a seasoned videographer who will henceforth be based in Cape Town where Balance has a rapidly-expanding joint venture with Two Oceans Marine Manufacturing. The rest of the Paarman clan, at least the boatbuilding part, have their hands full with a bulging order book at the thriving Nexus Yachts yard.

“The addition of Dean to our team marks an exciting chapter for Balance Catamarans,” says Balance Catamarans founder and president Phil Berman. “His expertise aligns seamlessly with our commitment to innovation and community building.””

We worked with Dean some years ago on some other Balance video projects and we loved that experience. Since then Dean has spent the past five years working in Multimedia projects in Europe. This was key to our global aspirations – a wealth of international experience. We are thrilled we were able to lure him back to South Africa,” Berman said.

Paarman is tasked with amplifying Balance’s presence both in South Africa and the global marketplace. He will oversee various projects as part of an expanded media and marketing team.
