Wooden Twisters

The first Twisters were all built in wood and there were variations in that whilst nearly all had straight coachroofs, a few had a low doghouse.

Most have stood the test of time very well and the traditional wooden interior has an atmosphere that is quite special.

If you are thinking of buying then the best advice is to engage a surveyor who specialises in wooden yachts.

GRP Twisters

All the mouldings were made by the Tyler Boat Company. Tyler’s were one of the pioneers of GRP construction and very well regarded in their field.

In the early days of GRP construction there was no such thing as building down to a price or weight. This certainly resulted in all Twisters being very strongly built; as a result of which they have stood up well to the test of time.

Tylers hulls do not seem to have been particularly prone to osmosis and only one really bad case has ever come to our notice. But do remember that any surveyor, being mindful of his indemnity insurance, will probably manage to find some trace somewhere! The majority of boats will have been epoxied by now anyway.

Whilst the hull and deck mouldings are particularly robust occasional problems have occurred with rudders either where water has got in or where there may be signs of the two halves of the moulding separating in the area of the stock.. Both problems are soluble rather than terminal!

Mast steps

The original Uphams completed yachts utilised a very adequate deck mounted fabricated steel mast step to span the two main bulkheads and spread the load.

A few home builders and professional yards underestimated the loads involved and did not make adequate provision. Most should have been sorted by now but if there isn’t an adequate looking mast step check for deformation.

Composite Twisters

Composite yachts, where the coachroof and cockpit were constructed in timber, are arguably the best looking but they need to be maintained. Check for signs of leakage which if left will lead to rot and expensive repairs.

Engines

Most early Twisters were fitted with petrol engines (no problem if properly maintained and operated) but all have since been re-powered with diesels in the 10-20hp range.

Gas installation in the galley

Original gas installations with the bottle in the galley locker are a no-no as far as insurers are concerned and again most boats have been retro-fitted to acceptable standards.

Good Hunting!

For Sale "Mingara"
Summary

Photo of Mingara, on sale for £19,000 Mingara was bought three seasons ago specifically to fulfil the dream of doing a single handed sail to Iceland-which I have recently successfully completed.

The return journey was with a friend, and Mingara felt perfect for either one or two people-though has berths for four.

She is therefore well equipped, including a satellite phone giving weather info, some e-mail access out at sea,with 400mins call time left (worth £400), a new Sea Feather wind vane self steering system,AIS,new furling gear, and 2yr old standing rigging.

She is available to buy from haul out date, which is September 2nd, but prospective buyers are welcome to have a trial sail in her beforehand, while she is on her mooring at Mylor (Nr Falmouth)

The picture was taken of Mingara crossing the Pentland Firth in July 2014, on the way home from Iceland.
