48' CELESTIAL BLUWATER 48 (1985) "INDIGO" SOLD!
Indigo is a center cockpit ketch-rigged bluewater cruiser that has been well-loved by knowledgeable and meticulous owners. She is capable and prepared to cruise anywhere in the world and to cross oceans in comfort.
Indigo has appeared in several sailing magazines and websites including SAIL Magazine, Cruising Outpost, Latitudes & Attitudes and Talk of the Dock. She has also been featured in Latitudes & Attitudes TV (episode 40). Onboard solutions have been highlighted in sailing community and she is recognized in most anchorages she visits.
Numerous smart upgrades have included redundancies such as dual Racor fuel filters, backup standalone navigation units, massive bank of maintenance-free batteries as well as generator, and a revamp of her anchoring options. Owners have spared no expense over the past decade in upgrades, additions and smart choices for distance cruising.
Indigo's split rig means the sail plan is easily managed by a couple. Her large mizzensail provides extra choices in downwind sailing configurations and her sail bags mean no more wrestling with stowing large sail covers.
Celestials were famous for their tankage - 250 gallons of fuel and 200 gallons of fresh water, which made them truly remarkable and self-sufficient cruisers. The tanks are below the cabin sole on the centerline so the weight adds to the stability of the vessel. Stowage capacity (both outside in cockpit lockers and lazarettes) as well as inside (in lockers, behind and under settees) is exceptional.
Indigo is a go-anywhere vessel in exceptional shape that will allow you to live the cruising dream.
