The keenly awaited 57.5 metre sailing superyacht Twizzle has had her preliminary launch by Royal Huisman. She is to receive finishing and fitting and will be rigged before her handover to the new owners following sea trials. Sailing yacht Twizzle is a Dubois designed flybridge ketch which was built for yacht owners who previously commissioned the motor yacht Twizzle which was built by another Dutch yard Feadship. The same owners also once owned a large 55m Perini Navi Sailing yacht.
Yacht Twizzle is designed and built for worldwide family cruising with speed safety and style. She is the first yacht the Dutch shipyard Royal Huisman has built which was styled by Redman Whiteley Dixon, with Todhunter Designers providing interior decoration together with the owners. S/Y Twizzle is also first new build flying bridge yacht the Dutch yacht builder has built which was designed by naval architecture by Ed Dubois – whose designs are often built by New Zealand yards.
Sailing yacht Twizzle name ‘Twizzle’ came from a TV puppet from the 1950’s and she is the result of the Owners’ vision of a high performance, high tech sailing yacht with the genuine long range cruising capability as mixed with the comfort and luxury of a large motor yacht. More photos and images of the yacht at launch are pending.
