Construction GRP
Underwater profile Long Keel
Finish Gelcoat finish

This is a white GRP hull with a long encapsulated keel. The Twister mouldings were made by the Tyler Boat Company, one of the pioneers of GRP construction and are very well regarded in their field. With less importance on weight, this resulted in all Twister's being very strongly built and as a result have stood the test of time. Hence this is a traditional solid yacht that is in very good condition.

Broker's Comments

With only two owners from new this is a well loved, well cared for example of a popular sailing yacht. This Twister 28 is a traditional design that is both safe and strong which makes her capable of travelling very long distances. Presented in very good condition she is in sail-away condition and will be very rewarding for the next lucky owner.
