The Twister needs little introduction, this classic design by Kim Holman has pretty lines and well mannered performance, though the interior is small by modern standards. Able to cope with almost any weather, these capable boats are just as handy exploring coastal waters as cruising the world's oceans. This good example has been well maintained and carefully used and is presented for sale in good overall condition.
