S/Y Twizzle goes up for sale
Published: Friday, 03 May 2013
The multi-awarding winning 57.5-metre sailing yacht Twizzle is for sale and Burgess and Northrop & Johnson have been appointed joint central sales agents. This is the first time this boat has been available for sale.
One of the world’s most innovative and visionary sailing yachts, Twizzle has been universally admired since her launch in 2010 by Dutch shipyard Royal Huisman. This high performance yacht successfully combines cutting edge technology with a level of comfort and amenities seldom found on a sailing yacht.
Hailed as one of the most elegant and stylish contemporary superyachts afloat, Twizzle’s interior and exterior design was by Redman Whiteley Dixon and interior décor by Todhunter Earle. Her naval architecture was by Dubois Naval Architects. Her sleek, sculpted profile signals immediately that this is no ordinary sailing yacht. Her sweeping teak decks are entirely bare of clutter and her living areas entirely dedicated to guests with uninterrupted views across the water.
On the lower deck, up to 11 guests enjoy luxury en-suite accommodation, configured as three double cabins and a twin with a Pullman. The large master suite comes with a bathroom, spa shower and private study.
With one of the most advanced sailing rigs ever created, Twizzle promises extraordinary performance and carries 1,780m² of sail; both main and mizzen sails can be hoisted simultaneously in under two minutes in winds as light as 5 knots. With circumnavigation in mind, she has a 62.25-metre carbon-fibre Panamax main mast and a 58-metre mizzen-mast, the tallest ever built.
Her ‘glass cockpit’ bridge has active glass panels with multiple screens, trackball and joystick controls with a fully integrated navigation, communications, data and monitoring system. Her swing centerboard can be adjusted in one minute to any angle even at speed or when sailing, from a maximum 10.4-metre draft to just 3.8 metres for flexibility, stability and access to shallow waters.
Recently exhibited publicly for the first time at the Singapore Yacht Show, Twizzle is currently in Southeast Asia as part of her world circumnavigation.
As yet, the asking price has not been released.
