The TWIGGY was intended for the amature builder and was very popular with shorthanded cruisers and racers during the 1970's and 1980's. A pivotal design that has crossed most oceans of the world.
There are a number of different versions so dimensions are very approximate. (Shown here is a considerably later MKII version.)
