Do you want to rent a motorboat for a vacation, but most options are too costly, or will have your friends or family packed in like sardines?
Then, there are also raging gas prices to think about.
The Balt 918 Titanium is a cruising boat designed for people who value functionality, smart spatial solutions, manoeuvrability, and saving money.
Why is this unique motorboat a popular choice for exploring thousands of isles scattered in the Croatian archipelago?
Here is our inside-out guide to Balt 918 Titanium. We cover dimensions, interior, equipment, entertainment, and more.
At first glance at its specifications, Balt 918 resembles a sailboat. However, this motorboat is 9,86 m wide, with a 3 m beam and a comparably smaller draft (0,49 m).
The Balt allows anchoring closer to the coast, and it’s easy to manoeuvre in narrow ports due to the stern and bow thruster.
It’s built for crews that prioritise comfort and want to discover all the hidden corners of the Adriatic Sea on their motor yacht charter in Croatia.
As you explore Croatia, soak up the view from a comfortable external sitting area on the front side of the boat.
Lower fuel spending is yet another reason why many people are drawn to Balt 918 Titanium.
The motorboat runs on a Yanmar 80 Hp engine, and its average cruising speed is 7 knots (maximum 9 knots).
Going at 7 knots, it uses less than 4 l/h – meaning you can travel 350 nm with a single tank of gas and 15% reserve.
The roof features a solar panel, providing longer battery life while on a cruise.
Most motorboats are limited to one or two cabins. The Balt 918 features three cabins – including a master cabin and two double cabins.
The space is ideal for a comfortable holiday for maximum 6 friends or a family.
The standing height of the interior is 193 m. So even taller crew members won’t have to bend their heads as they go from one cabin to the next.
3 Cabins - Layout Balt 918 Titanium
The inner saloon, consisting of a helmsman seat, kitchen block, seating area and front bench, lets in a lot of natural light through glazed windows that also provide shelter during unfavourable weather.
Draw the curtains if it gets too bright.
The boat has everything you might need. Including:
Visit one of the three sleeping cabins hidden under the deck with double beds, full-size berths and cabinet storage. Rest on the bed in the master cabin (202x140 cm) or take a nap on the side cabin’s bed (203x128 cm).
Freshen up at the sanitary cabin complete with a toilet, sink, shower, heating and ventilation.
The kitchen is placed at the heart of the boat, at the upper level. Stock up the pantry, fridge (60l) and freezer (15l) before you go. Utensils, a sink and a Nespresso machine, are already waiting for you.
The motorboat has everything you need to feel at home hidden in its many strategically placed compartments. Even the front bench transforms into a passenger seat with the swift folding of the backrest.
Semi-planing design enables the boat to achieve more speed and makes it easy to manoeuvre.
Inspired by the principle “less is more” of the renowned architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the design is limited to essentials – leaving no space for unnecessary features or details.
Built in 2021 at the Balt Yacht shipyard, with its elegant and timeless design and smart spatial solutions, the boat is bound to become a modern classic.
The motorboat is equipped with a dinghy (2,5m) and a compatible outboard engine (2,5hp).

Balt 918 Titanium is a spacious motorboat that’s easy to manoeuvre – without fuel costing you an arm and a leg.
From the moment you stand on its sturdy wide deck to the moment you disembark, the Balt will glide you from point A to point B and the adventure that awaits in between.
Embark on the voyage.
As your worries slip away and the calmness of the sea replaces them with ease, you’ll find a temporary home with your favourite people on the glistening sea.
