$62.4m superyacht turning heads in Abell Point Marina

THERE is a new boat in town and it's making quite a statement.

Superyacht Twizzle arrived in Abell Point Marina on Monday, boasting a list of grand features.

Worth about $62.4 milllion (USD $44 million), the luxury boat is a stand-out in the Airlie Beach marina, measuring more than 57m in length and 60m in height, making her one of the tallest boats sailing the oceans.

Currently sailing under the Cayman Island flag, the yacht recently stopped in Sydney in March, and Brisbane earlier in April, before making its way to the Whitsundays.
