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.
She benefits from a full set of networked Raymarine electronics. These have been looked after and kept up to date. They include : ST60 instruments (2003), ST2000+ tiller pilot (2005), Raymarine 49E DSC VHF (2010) and Raychart 320 GPS/chartplotter. The owner has obviously looked after this boat and the condition is fantastic anyone wanting a traditional sailing boat with classic looks and great sea keeping capabilities makes this a must to view.
