Sailing yacht Twizzle is the result of the Owner’s vision of a high performance, high tech sailing yacht with all the comfort and luxury of a motor yacht.
Unrivaled specifications and an unparalleled quality of build makes S/Y Twizzle the perfect sailing yacht, whether racing in superyacht regattas or hoisting its sails in minutes to take advantage of even the gentlest of breezes.
Sailing Yacht Twizzle is the perfect escape for charterers who care about the environment and wish to visit the most beautiful places on earth in comfort and safety.
Royal Huisman’s first flybridge sailing yacht, Twizzle was conceived to create a high-performance sailing yacht with the comfort and amenity of a motor yacht. Unlike most large sailing yachts, the sails can be hoisted in a matter of minutes and Twizzle can sail in anything from 6 to 26 knots of wind.
An experienced owner has brought an exciting team together to create a stunning new project that lists three important “firsts” for Royal Huisman. The first:
A very motivating aspect of this project for Royal Huisman is the comprehensive involvement of the owners alongside the architects, the stylists and the yard – a real working partnership within a stimulating team culture.
The owners have brought significant experience with previous yachts (including a 47 meter Perini Navi and a 55 meter Feadship) to this project, providing a well-informed focus for their team choices and challenges. They have particular interests in technology and design and participate in frequent meetings at the yard, at the designers, and at their own offices to stimulate ideas and momentum.
Justin Redman and his team have responded to the brief with a graceful flying bridge offering sleekness, style, and amenity. Redman and Emily Todhunter have defined the interior, with owners’ and guests’ accommodation abaft the engine room and the crew area forward. A central dining area and separate saloon are amidships above the engine room, with the main galley on a mezzanine deck and the pilothouse on a raised deck. Two 6.4 meter Castoldi tenders stow in a garage on the main deck, above the crew cabins.
With a specification calling for the amenity of a motor yacht within a high performance sailing yacht, Dubois reduced wetted surface and set a swing keel within a 3.8m-draft fixed keel. He optimized beam and added some 120 tons of internal ballast to improve stiffness and stability beneath 1.780m2 of sail, set on a ketch rig. The mainmast is just under 62 meters, to clear Panama’s Bridge of the Americas at low water. Advanced lightweight composites were used for masts, deck hatches and other components, with PBO for rigging.
