Broker Remarks

Twister 28 for sale.  In the second ownership from new and in the current ownership for a year. 

The Twister 28 was designed by Kim Holman, the moulds were by Tyler Boats and the original correspondence from Tyler Mouldings and Hartley Marine is available.

Dolphin benefits from a replacement engine that was professionally installed in 2017 and installation included wiring loom, anti siphon exhaust system, through hull sea water inlet valve and strainer. Darglow 14" Featherstream propeller fitted in 2017.

Being one of the last Twister's to be built she is entirely GRP including the coach roof, which is GRP bonded to the decks - so no leaks. Encapsulated long keel, hull below waterline epoxied from new.

Twisters sail beautifully and are sought after all weather fast cruisers.  DOLPHIN is ready to sail away.
