An offer on Indigo
Indigo has been on the market for a short while and while
we were in Malta collecting the new boat, Mike received a firm
offer. Excellent timing!
We sailed Time 2 up to Genova, Italy to put her
on the delivery boat to Florida and have now returned to Annapolis to sort
out Indigo. Lots of excitement around the new boat, but lots still to do
Today she is in Georgetown, Maryland for part of her
survey. Putting Indigo on the market, has been quite a performance.
In addition to the prospective owner visiting the yacht quite a few times, there
is a full survey and investigation of every part of the boat. The marine
surveyor did an inspection of the top-side at the marina and we also had another
survey of the engines and generator. The bottom survey is the last
step, which requires a haul-out. This is done to check the props, the
rudders and the overall condition of the hull. As she is so wide, we
have had to sail about 40nm up the Chesapeake river and down the Sassafras river
to Georgetown where there is a big travellift that can accommodate her.
I am pleased to report that Indigo has performed very well
during all the surveys - Thanks to Mike's on-going maintenance (and some of my
cleaning skills) - she is still in very good condition. The prospective owner
joined us on the trip and was very impressed with Indigo's performance on the
All going well, the offer will be finalised shortly and we
will be able to get down to Florida to meet Time 2 when she arrives in the last
week of October.
