INDIGO VI was the last built of the beautiful German Frers designed cruiser/racer, the Swan 651. She is hull number 019 and has the extended transom, flag-blue hull, fin keel and was built by Nautor Swan, Finland in 1991.
INDIGO VI has been completely and lovingly restored by her current owner, an experienced and passionate Swan sailor.
She acquired a new engine and generator and a bow thruster in 2013. Soon afterwards, in 2014, new 15mm teak decks were done and new North Sails, including a fully battened main, genoa and staysail were acquired.
In 2017 more extensive work was carried out. The hull, topsides, superstructure and mast and boom were repainted and a full anti osmosis bottom treatment was done. A full rig survey and service was also done.
There have been other equipment upgrades and replacements that are too numerous to list here.
INDIGO VI is a classic Frers beauty in excellent condition and is ready to go anywhere. She is probably the best Swan 651 on the market and must be seen to be appreciated.
