About this Twister 28 Mk2 (1983) - Reduced price


A classic, safe and seaworthy yacht, Dolphin has only had two owners since she was launched in 1984. She has been very well maintained and upgraded so that today you can sail her away without any concern or major re-fitting required. Being built of GRP throughout she is completely dry at all times unlike the composite Twisters that can suffer from leaks through the deck to coachroof joint.

The original owners had the yatch until 2017. They purchased the moulds directly from Tyler Mouldings and then had her finished at Hartley Marine in Rochester, Kent. The underwater hull was epoxy resin coated in 1983 and as a result is in very good condition. All of the original paper work is available including the builder's certificate and proof of ownership and VAT paid. SSR number SSRI170605. Hull number T28/P.57. She is lying ashore at Ramsgate Harbour, Kent.
