Broker's Comments

This has to be the best example of an early composite Twister that I have ever seen. She is a tribute to the care, diligence and competence of her current owner and all those who came before him. There is no need for me to sing the praises of Kim Holman, her designer, nor the famous yard which built her. She is what she is, a true East Coast Classic from yesteryear that could teach today's offerings a thing or two.
