Burgess and Northrop & Johnson have been appointed Joint Central Sales Agents for the 57.5 metre (188.7ft) multiple award-winning TWIZZLE, which is the very first time the yacht has been available for sale.
Sailing yacht TWIZZLE, delivered in 2010 by the revered Royal Huisman Shipyard in The Netherlands, successfully combines cutting edge technology with the level of comfort and amenities seldom encountered on a sailing yacht. She is also certified to the highest levels for cruising in environmentally sensitive waters.
Hailed as one of the most elegant and stylish contemporary superyachts afloat, TWIZZLE’s impressive design credentials boast exterior/interior design by Redman Whiteley Dixon and interior décor by Todhunter Earle with naval architecture by Dubois Naval Architects.
Her sleek, sculpted profile signals immediately that this is no ordinary sailing yacht and her sweeping teak decks are entirely bare of clutter. Unusually, her artfully created main deck linear living areas are entirely dedicated to guests and offer uninterrupted views across the water. On the lower deck, up to 11 guests enjoy luxury ensuite accommodations, configured as three doubles and a twin with pullman, plus a large master suite with bathroom, spa shower and private study.
With one of the most advanced sailing rigs, 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.
Her ‘glass cockpit’ bridge has active glass panels and multiple screens, trackball and joystick controls with fully integrated navigation/communications data and monitoring system.
With circumnavigation in mind, she has a 62.25m carbon fibre Panamax main mast designed to clear Panama’s Bridge of the Americas at low water, and a 58m mizzen mast, which is the tallest ever built.
Her swing centreboard can be adjusted in one minute to any angle even at speed or when sailing, from maximum 10.4m to 3.8m for flexibility, stability and access to shallow waters.
Recently exhibited publicly for the first time at the Singapore Yacht Show, TWIZZLE is currently located in South-East Asia as part of her world circumnavigation.
