Twister 28 - £13,000

A classic in excellent condition, this fine example of the Twister class was built by Uphams of Brixham.
The original engine was been replaced by a Yanmar 2 QM 15 diesel in 1974.

The present owner has made a number of improvements the most significant being the installation of a complete new rig in 2012. The mast is now taller with a fully battened main sail, all rigging both standing and running have been replaced, and a de-mountable bow sprit added.

The hull has been epoxied.

A survey has been completed this year and may be available for serious enquirers.

This yacht is ready to go and worth a visit.
