Royal Huisman went the extra mile to create a yacht that is so technically astute and so clean and green. Here are some standout features:
Twizzle carries 1,780 square metres of sail; both main and mizzen sails can be hoisted simultaneously and silently in under two minutes.
She has a 62.5-metre carbon-fibre Panamax main mast and a 58-metre mizzen mast – the tallest mizzen mast ever built.
Her glass cockpit bridge has active glass panels and multiple screens, trackball and joystick controls with fully integrated navigation/communications data and monitoring system.
Twizzle has her own cellular phone network, which means that even areas of poor or no signal reception, guests will receive the SY Twizzle Network signal, so their Blackberrys and iPhones keep working no matter where Twizzle roams.
A single iTouch remote allows guests to control lights, air-conditioning, blinds, Satellite TV and Twizzle channels, and the full range of Kaleidescape music and DVD options.
Finally, guests onboard Twizzle can be whisked about in two Castoldi 6.4-metre jet tenders, both of which are hidden in concealed bays beneath the foredeck.
