Immaculately maintained blue water cruiser for a small crew due to hydr. furling sails

Blue Twinkle is an excellent yacht, very well equipped and in an immaculate condition. She offers good sailing performance (deep fin throat!) and easy to handle with two persons due to her hydraulic operated mainsail & genoa, electric winches and electric anchor winch. Her gen-set together with her large diesel and water tank will provide you with a great deal of independence. Her rigging is refitted in 2012, her underwaterbody applied with a gelshield in 2012 and her teakdeck forseen of a new caulking in 2016. All done at Contest Yachts, without saving a penny!
