Royal Huisman’s Twizzle

Friday, August 17th, 2012

It is said that building a custom sailing yacht can be a delicate balance, or even a series of trade-offs, but it is difficult to find a shadow of compromise within the Royal Huisman’s Twizzle. The 57.5m – long labour of love embodies what has been referred to as  “the art of the only just possible”, a blend of masterful engineering and sleek design innovation.

Twizzle prides herself on one of the most advanced sailing rigs ever created, boasts speeds up to 17 knots, effortlessly logs ocean miles and, phenomenally, is carbon neutral. Prime real estate at the front of the body is remarkably reserved for the main passenger salon rather than the helm, which is located on a half-raised deck above a forward saloon. Lateral thinking has allowed the sweeping teak deck to remain unbroken by hatches or obstructions.

Twizzle’s technological components are concealed by the refined, contemporary stylings of Redman Whiteley Dixon and Todhunter Earle Interiors. Her abundance of convertible and seamless indoor and outdoor spaces allow for maximum relaxation, answering to privacy or temperature conditions with wonderful flexibility.

Alfresco dining and recreational areas on the lower deck offer generous, tranquil space with shade while the sun-drenched flybridge provides panoramic views, sun beds, a bar, barbeque and rooftop dining table.

Impressive accommodations provide ample space and resort-like comfort for ten guests; each light-flooded suite is outfitted with beautifully-conceived, modern decor. The quarters for ten crew members and captain maintain the exceptionally high standards.

Guests will delight in countless extravagances: fold-down drink tables and pop-up reading lights appear from within the coaming and iPod docks help manage the voyage soundtrack with ease. Twizzle’s own cell phone network provides travellers with full coverage, no matter what her coordinates may be.

Twizzle is offered for charter by Burgess Yachts, with weekly rates beginning at US$ 245,000, www.burgessyachts.com.
