I am interested in a Twister 28. I am wondering if anyone can tell me more about this yacht, especially owners, or people having sailed one extensively on long trips or offshore
. I have heard they are quite seaworthy
and fast, and point quite well too for a full keeled yacht. They also look great.
Anyone able to tell me more about its strengths and weaknesses?
I do know about some of them having wooden coach house and possible leakage with age. But is there anything else to watch out for, seeing the boats are quite old?
One of the things that worries me is that the stepped base for the mast
is made up of the two posts on each side of the forward door to the V berth. In other words, the mast
is not stepped on a post directly underneath that itself is positioned on top of the keel
. Is that a weakness in the design?
Lastly, how do they compare to a Vancouver
27 or 28?
