Schooner Twister

Twister | 20 pers. (55 day) | Baltic Sea

This traditional fishing ship was built completely from wood in 1902. In 1957, the wooden hull was replaced by a steel one. In 1998, the two-masted schooner 'Twister' was completely converted into a luxury sailing ship with the feel of a yacht. All guests are guaranteed an enjoyable and comfortable sailing trip aboard the fast, seagoing schooner 'Twister', whether at the helm, on deck or in the cosy wheelhouse. Her accommodation makes her perfect fit for families. Her modern rigging system and the gracefully designed lines enable the 'Twister' to perform excellently both on the IJsselmeer, Baltic Sea and the ocean. She can, however, mostly be found in the Baltic Sea area, from where she sails from her home port Kiel along the German coast to Denmark, Sweden or further away. December 2012 the 'Twister' has become a new ship-owner, Thomas Hofmans, who would also like to search for adventure and nature at the Canary islands, in New York or the Caribbean.

In 2013 the Twister will be sailing in the following areas:
