Indigo is an excellent example of this popular Bob Perry design featuring the preferred Center Cockpit, 3-stateroom, 2-head layout. Since 1994 Indigo has been living the good life in Marion Harbor. She sails seasonally for 5 months and is then stored either indoors or under cover for 7 months, all while enjoying a high level of maintenance and updating by prideful owners. Though she's had several trips to Bermuda and back, this is not a tired round-the-world veteran. Indigo is in fantastic condition and the owner customizations make her a stand-out. She's never had teak decks and there are no black iron tanks. For ease of maintenance, some of the exterior teak has been replaced with stainless steel. This is a rare offering and I encourage you to view the full specifications for more details.
In the Designer's own words:
"Designs are the product of countless computations and comparative data. But, the final result or personality of the boat is far more than the sum of the parts and in fact defies calculations. Every once in a while the designer produces a boat where everything just comes together into a beautiful blend where no evidence of compromise is present. That is how I think of the Tayana 52."
Indigo's interior accommodations are both beautiful and functional. The layout is well thought out for safe passage making but also comfortable and roomy for living aboard. The interior is bright and the ventilation is excellent throughout thanks to (4) dorade vents and several opening hatches and ports. The teak & holly cabin sole is newly varnished, storage capacity is enormous, and the (3) private staterooms accommodate 6 comfortably, and up to 8 with the salon. The master stateroom aft has a full Queen walk around berth. The Forward and Master cabins have custom made Hand-Craft coil-spring yacht mattresses.
The craftsmanship is second to none, featuring beautiful Burmese teak joinery throughout, solid teak stave doors and frames are beveled and hand trimmed. Louvered teak lockers, solid stave teak-and-holly sole with extensive removable floorboards for near total access below the sole. Interior is finished in satin varnish with gloss accents on the trim.

Customizations & Updates
Indigo features many recent customizations and updates born out of hard-earned time at sea. Some of these include:
Custom Hard Dodger professionally manufactured of foam cored composite construction with clear ¼” Lexan vision panels. The dodger is ergonomically designed to allow entry/exit via the companionway without having to crouch. There is a large forward facing, opening vision panel, weather gasketed, with SS gas spring supports. The roof of the hard dodger has SS grab rails, non skid surface and the foam cored sandwich construction will support the weight of two adults.
The Main Bulkhead was doubled in thickness and hull tabbing was expanded to increase strength in this high-load area of the hull. A 3/4" thick Aluminum plate was imbedded into the overhead deck around the mast collar with flanges connecting to the main bulkhead for added strength.
As a result of the owner's business connections, Indigo has benefited from numerous updates and customizations with type 316 stainless steel including but not limited to: teak grab rails replaced with SS, Stanchions improved & strengthened, chainplates replaced, SS fordeck plate installed for protection against anchor gear, custom fitted SS galley counter, custom bow and stern rails, stemhead chainplate doubled in thickness for added strength, custom swim ladder, custom SS water heater, and more.
