In 1902 the original fishing ship was built out of wood. Fifty-five years later the wooden hull was replaced by a steel hull. The ship continued to operate as a modern fishing vessel until 1981 and quickly brought the fish from other ships to the fish auction.
After the ship had been in various harbors for 17 years, Andre personally adapted the hull to the modern schooner yacht that the Twister is now. After the baptism in May 1999 the ship came into service under the name Twister and since then she has proven herself one of the fastest sailing ships in the Northern sailing area.
