Broker's Comments

If you're looking for a strong, speedy 28 footer, that will not only keep you safe in all sorts of sea states but will also be easy to sail & easy on the eye too, then look no further.

The Twister Mk II, with GRP hull and topsides, was built to last, designed to win races and is an excellent sea boat.

This example has been in the same ownership, and well cared for, since she was competed then launched in 1986. The Beta 20 engine, which was fitted in 2009 on new engine beds, has less than 500 hours on it. It also has the advantage an uprated alternator and Beta belt modification.

Although snug by modern standards, the accommodation is well designed. It has berths for 5 fitted with lee cloths and a galley with double sink & gimballed cooker. The nav table, which can be slid into a storage space over the quarter berth, has a large Garmin plotter/radar display mounted on a swivel, that can be viewed above the Nav table or swung out to be viewed from the helm.

This GRP Twister, with light blue tinged topsides, has a very practical, sturdy and capable feel to it. I believe that she makes for a great all rounder, for quick races, long safe passages and equally good for beginners or seasoned sailors.
