Broker's Comments

Twisters are considered by some to be an absolute classic long keel cruiser. First built all in wood and the later ones all composite. This example is one with a GRP hull, wood deck and coachroof and looks very pretty and was one of the last to be built before the all Composite version was released.

This Twister 28 is a good example from the Holman design house and well constructed. Whilst there are some aspects of originality this Twister has been well looked after and if you are a fan of these long keeler's then look no further. So, if you like the look of this Twister 28 then it should be on your shortlist, particularly as the vendor has aquired another yacht and is therefore a keen seller. Offers on the asking price will be considered.
