Broker's Comments

The Twister is one of the classic designs from Kim Holman - a "proper yacht" with excellent sea keeping and great performance. You just have to look at the lines with the long keel shape and classic styling to be hooked.
The interior design also ticks all the boxes for a serious cruising yacht with a good sized navigation station, in the right place next to the companionway, and a compact galley designed for use at sea.
This Twister gives you the feeling she has been looked after, the current owners had the hull epoxied in 2009 as a preventative measure. They are the third owners from new and have owned the boat since 2002.
