Offering an excellent balance of attractive lines, comfortable cruising accommodation and safe passage making they are often the first choice for solo sailors. Indigo is a desirable full GRP example fitted out professionally by Hartley and presented in very good condition for her age, fitted with many upgrades including a recent Nanni engine, windvane self steering and diesel heating.
