What's not to like about this beauty from 1972!?

Classic Boat’s Tom Cunliffe said of the Twister “No better small cruising yacht has ever been made” and this one will not disappoint.

She looks to be well maintained, and upgraded by the current owner. Engine rebuilt 2021, sails and rigging overhauled, solar charging, new B&G instruments and other upgrades.

There is also the possibility of transfer of the berth rental, which is a big plus-point, as there are very few available in Mallorca this year...

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
