Crafted by Wright & Sons (Ipswich) Ltd in the 1950s, the Twinkle 12 one-design boat, known as ‘Moonshine’, boasts a clinker-planked structure in varnished mahogany. These boats, fastened with copper rivets to steam-bent oak timbers, were meticulously handcrafted with the finest materials.
After undergoing a meticulous restoration, Moonshine now gleams as if she were brand new. This sturdy vessel is easily managed with a crew of two, sailing smoothly and providing excellent stability – a perfect family boat suited to young sailors with picnic essentials and swimming gear in tow.
Featuring a lifting centre-plate, Moonshine is well-suited for sailing right up to the beach – she’s an ideal companion for a day of exploration, uncovering hidden coves and inlets, and offering a convenient spot for lunch in those hard-to-reach places.
