1970 Twister 28

Twister 28 - Description

1970 Twister 28 with sloop rig. 'Festival' was purchased by her Father and Son owners in 2006, and had an extensive refurbishment for their first three years of ownership - pretty much everything detachable was renewed or replaced, including a new BETA 25hp engine installed in 2008. Since then the boat has benefitted from new standing and running rigging in 2019,hull being epoxied and coppercoated in 2017 and an Aquadrive antivibration system being fitted. Set up for easy single handed sailing. Due to the Father's age and Son's lack of time and distance, the boat is sadly on the market as she's not being used. Priced to sell for this season, and available to view by appointment at Dell Quay Boat Yard near Chichester.
