Broker's Comments

This Twister 28 is one of the latest, being an all GRP hull and deck construction. The hull has been slightly modified from the original wooden design which the original Twister was constructed from.
The version has internal GRP mouldings which make for a clean headlining and provides a light and airy feel, especially forward.
If you are interested in owning a classic yacht then this Twister 28 must be worth considering given the upgrades it has recently enjoyed.

These boat details are subject to contract.
