About this Twister 28 Mk2


An absolute bargain reduced price for quick sale due to illness. Dolphin is a great example of one of the more recent (1984) all grp Twisters that are renown for being safe and reliable short handed cruisers. A virtually new engine and control gear (2017), an unused top down Kemp furling spinnaker (2019) for short handed sailing, all the necessary equipment and features to sail away without any extra work needed.

Hull moulded by Tyler Mouldings (original certificate available). Fitted out by Hartley Marine of Rochester, Kent and launched in 1984. She has a high quality teak interior which is in very good condition . Dolphin is now (2020) in her second ownership – the original owner kept her in Swansea for 34 years.
