La Ina


It is with a heavy heart that I put La Ina up for sale. I have owned her since 2014, she has given me so much joy and, as every Twister owner knows, is amazing to sail in all conditions. I believe La Ina to be particularly pretty with her marino blue topsides, teak cockpit and coach roof. She always draws remarks on how pretty she is (we all love our boats!) but in recent years I am just not getting enough time to sail her.
La Ina was built by Uphams in 1969,she is of composite construction and has had much work completed and upgrades by previous owners and during my ownership. She is fully equipped for long distance cruising and is set up for single handed sailing with all lines leading back to the cockpit as I sail her mostly by myself.
