Predominantly it should be noted Ed Dubois is an renowned and acknowledged leader in designing flybridge sailing yachts and his vast experience has been fully utilised in creating Twilight’s handsome outboard profile.

The photo of Twilight’s flybridge and aft deck area tells its own story. When at sea the flybridge gives the on watch crew and guests an unrivalled view. Berthed, or at anchor, the guest area is large enough for 8-10 people to relax and can also offer absolute privacy. It really is the #1 place to watch the sunset from.

The aft deck cockpit area is a comfortable sitting or resting area and with the deck cushions in place is perfect for sunbathing or simply being screened from the breeze. Both of these areas are additional to Twilights protected cockpit area with its large fixed table and seating for up to 12. This area also offers protection from wind and weather making it equally suitable for daytime or evening use.
A side effect of Twilights flybridge layout is that both her spacious interior deck saloon and lower saloon can be very favourably compared with many much larger yachts circa 45 metres.
