INDIGO was built for her current, experienced sailing owner.
The vessel is a high performance fast cruiser also suited to regatta sailing.
Following delivery new the yacht was sailing in Brazil and Caribbean area 2011.
In 2012 they crossed to the Mediterranean, visiting Palma and cruising throughout the Med (Italy, Greece etc.) and back to the Caribbean.
Since then she has cruised the South America area and San Blas islands and Caribbean – only for family use (not charter). She has competed in several races including the Recife to F. Noronha – and offshore race of 350 nm for which she beat the record, completing in less than 25 hours!
Summer 2017 INDIGO returned again to Spain – to be sold.
Her owner is now retiring from yachting.
In a recent sailing trip, during 14 hrs INDIGO sailed from Palma to Valencia, with an average speed of 10 knots, and a top speed amazing 23.9 knots ! This in a Force 7 !
