The Singapore Yacht Show 2013 featured the strongest line up yet. One of the stars of the show was S/Y Twizzle. Launched by award-winning Dutch shipyard Royal Huisman in 2010, eco-friendly 57.5m Twizzle is an example of the growing number of superyachts venturing off the Med-Caribbean milk run. Having spent some time recently cruising around Asia, Twizzle displayed her offerings as a charter yacht operating in the region.
We asked Royal Huisman’s commercial manager Evert van Dishoeck what he thought of the event. “I think we can be very positive. We have been doing yacht shows in Asia for a couple of years now, as well as individual presentations of yachts, but being here in Singapore now, with such a marvellous vessel such as Twizzle has been a big support and we had good response and a good flow of visitors”.
The sailing superyacht market is a niche market, but we have had a lot of interest here at the show. It was a great opportunity to be able to display a unique yacht such as Twizzle to this audience. Twizzle truly combines the best of both worlds, the excitement of sailing, combined with the space, luxury and all amenities of a large motor yacht”.
“In Asia, there is a saying ‘every long march, starts with a first step’. For us, this is not a short term commitment. We will continue be here”.
Twizzle, which was on display by Royal Huisman, Burgess and Dubois, is available for charter, and is also currently for sale.
