A beautifully appointed blue water yacht offering superb accommodation combined with rugged offshore/blue water capability, cherished by an experienced owner she has enjoyed thorough maintenance and continuous updates.
We purchased INDABA in Norway and sailed her to the UK for an extensive refit at Berthon in 2003. We then crossed the Atlantic to the Caribbean where we lived on her in the Leeward / Windward Islands for 5 years. In that time we visited every country in the Caribbean chain, as well as Venezuela and the outlying islands of S America. INDABA has proved to be an ideal platform for travelling to remote areas and provided us with a spacious and totally self-sufficient home. She is a solid design but easily handled by two people. A true blue water yacht, capable of making lengthy ocean passages safely whilst being a comfortable home, spacious enough to accommodate visiting guests in comfort.
