Broker Remarks

Twister - 1967

One of the 'composite' Twisters, built by Uphams of Brixham. The boat has a classic long keel hull in GRP, a GRP deck and a traditional wooden superstructure and cockpit. The Twister is known as a solid, sea-worthy design with pleasing lines. Yet the light wind performance and feather light tiller are testaments to Kim Holman's claim that he 'just got this one right'.

Fitted with wind vane auto-steering, Re-engined with a smooth running, fresh water cooled Perkins Perama 3 cylinder engine. This boat has a good selection of navigation instruments.

The masthead rig has been completely refitted to include a slab reefed main, lazy jacks and easy packing boom cover. There is also a roller reefed genoa.
