  1. Royal Huisman complete 57.50-meter "Twizzle"

    Dutch yacht builder Royal Huisman launched the widely anticipated 57.50-meter long flybridge ketch called "Twizzle" back in July. Since then she has been completed and formally delivered to her owner(s). She has been built with Naval Architecture by Dubois Naval Architects with exterior styling interior by UK firm Redman Whiteley Dixon and interior styling and decoration by Tod Hunter Earle Associates.

    The name Twizzle may sound familiar and probably it does. That is because the owner of this yacht built a Feadship with the same name in the past. The new flybridge ketch by Royal Huisman is a ground breaking design from a technical and technology standpoint. She also is the first fly-bridge sailing yacht for the design firm.

    Twizzle has been built fully from aluminum and has a displacement near 550 tonnes. She is 11.59-meters wide and carries a variable draft. Keel down, she draws in the region of 10.80-meters of water while keel up she sits a mere 3.80-meters when compared.

    Twizzle carries a massive 1,780 square meters of sail. Yard number 386 (Twizzle) can sail at a speed around 17 knots and cruise under engine power at 12 knots with a range in the region of 4,000 nautical miles.

    Now that Twizzle has been completed and is sailing, she has visited destinations in Europe. According to her own website, she is set to cross the Atlantic in late October bound for the Caribbean. Once there she will operate out of Antigua exploring most of the Caribbean.
