General condition and any additional information

INDIGO is a solid, fast cruiser. Built in Portsmouth, RI, she is a classic sailing sloop with gorgeous lines.

Standard features

Here is INDIGO, our 1978 C and C 36 built in Rhode Island. We have had her since 2004.

We are almost afraid to offer her for sale, since I dont want to lose her. At the same time, life has a way of adjusting priorities and circumstances and we just do not get out as much as we like. Yard bills and maintenance and upkeep is expensive compared to how often we get to sail.

We have made her a comfortable, capable cruising vessel. We have never raced her, nor is there evidence she was raced. She was built as a charter cruiser.

Our asking price is nowhere near what we have invested. We would love her to go to a young family who will cherish her as much as we do. She is laying at her mooring in Mystic, CT.

Thank you.
