Broker's Comments

Twisters are just great. Lovely lines, good pedigree, good sea boat and genuinely, a classic boat.

This one, benefits from a grp hull and deck and the original gel coat is still looking very good.

The bright work is all solid teak, so, no expense spared in the construction. Right now, she needs a bit of sanding and varnishing and she will sparkle.

A very well cared for yacht that has been in the current ownership for more than a dozen years.

We like this yacht a lot !
