Sail yacht TWIZZLE

Award-winning Royal Huisman sail yacht TWIZZLE on display at the recent Singapore Yacht Show 2013.  She hopes to garner interest in the South East Asia yacht charter business. 

The 57 meter Dutch-built luxury sailing charter vessel presents a unique itinerary. She is the latest example of the superyachts venturing off the traditional Mediterranean-Caribbean, “Milk Run.
Royal Huisman’s commercial manager is Evert van Dishoeck.  Evert commented:
The sailing superyacht market is a niche market, but we have had a lot of interest here at the (Singapore) show. It was a great opportunity to be able to display a unique yacht such as TWIZZLE…(she) truly combines the best of both worlds – the excitement of sailing, combined with the space, luxury and all amenities of a large motor yacht.”
“In Asia, there is a saying ‘every long march starts with a first step.’
