Dolphin has only had one owner since new in 1984. Being one of the last Twister's to be built she is entirely GRP including the coach roof, which is GRP bonded to the decks - so no leaks. The accommodation is finished to a very high standard in hardwood throughout. The engine was replaced professionally in 2017 with a Beta 14 along with control panel, electrical loom, and anti syphon exhaust. The cooling water inlet sea cock and strainer were replaced at the same time. A Darglow featherstream feathering propeller was also fitted 2017. The gas and gas cooker were replaced with a paraffin Taylors' cooker to overcome the difficulties with gas safety.
