TWILIGHT is a vintage Burger yacht with modern upgrades and restorations that belie her age. This gentleman's classic yacht has not only been maintained to an exceptionally high level, but has been improved tremendously over time.

The current owner has spared no expense to ensure her impeccable condition. TWILIGHT completed multiple refits in the preceding 10 years to bring her up to modern standards and insure her reliable operation. During these refits, nearly every system, finish, and feature was upgraded or improved. The 2015 refit included new Caterpillar C-32 engines and ZF transmissions. At the same time, the bottom was sandblasted to bare aluminum and the stern tubes were replaced, while a new barrier coat and anti-fouling system were applied. The year prior, the owner installed Quantum Zero Speed stabilizers. Other improvements include new navigation and audiovisual electronics, new generators, new Atlas converter, a completely new interior, a swim platform extension, new galley appliances and much more. 

TWILIGHT features walk-around teak decks that lead to a large foredeck with guest seating and ample space to operate a heavy-duty windlass. Her large cockpit has teak decks and cap rails and is an excellent space for guests to relax or to store water sports gear.

TWILIGHT’s flybridge has a barbecue, a sunpad, guest seating, an outside steering station, and a 17-foot tender, which can be launched on either side via two davits. She also has great access and storage for water sports & fishing via the cockpit and swim platform, with plenty of storage for all the associated equipment nearby.

The classically styled interior of TWILIGHT has been refitted with a high gloss teak finish throughout. The main salon is an elegant yet comfortable place to entertain. The aft salon features a beautiful custom fitted wet bar, finished in high gloss teak. Her formal dining room seats eight and informal dining aft seats 8 to 10. TWILIGHT’s galley has been recently upgraded with first-class appliances with excellent facilities for the chef. 

There are accommodations for eight guests in three luxury staterooms, including an aft full-beam master with a king-size bed and his-and-hers en-suite bathroom. Amidships are two twin berth guest rooms, each with an additional Pullman and en-suite bathrooms. 

Her layout and features will provide great family cruising anywhere in the world as she is equipped with zero speed stabilizers, large anchors, ATLAS shore power converter, hydraulic passarelle, Alfa Laval fuel polisher, and much more. Twilight is a unique yacht that will make the most discerning owner happy.
