2008 BENETEAU 46

 Indigo, a beautiful, one owner, large volume Beneteau 46 is a near ideal blend of performance, comfort and user friendliness. She exhibits Beneteau's sleek look with a rakish deck design that somehow seems low slung while at the same time allows for large port-lights that flood the interior with natural light. Although the systems are serious, they are not overwhelming to maintain and it's a Beneteau, meaning that it is well made and proven by the largest sailboat company in the world!

 “Indigo” has always been sailed locally in the fresh waters of Lake Erie out of Sandusky, Ohio.  The owner, a stereotypical engineer, has maintained this boat to high standards and it shows!  Equipped with everything you need for ease of handling; electric halyard/mainsheet winch, furling mainsail and genoa, twin helms for an unobstructed view, walk-thru transom, electric anchor windlass, bow-thruster, and much more.  Original upgrades include the larger Yanmar 76 hp turbo diesel (4JH4TE) with the Flexofold 3 blade prop, 2 additional 4D house batteries (4 total), Prowatt 3000 Inverter and Jabsco electric heads.  New in 2017; the best combination of navigation equipment (Garmin GPS Map 7612 chart-plotter, Raymarine i70 sailing instruments and Furuno Nav Pilot 71c at each helm), Xantrex True-Charge-2 40 amp battery charger, Garmin AIS 600 and Clarion M606 stereo system with Bluetooth, XM and JL marine MX650 speakers.  

 A large Bimini, with three removable sunscreens, and a dodger will keep you comfortable on deck.  Below deck is finely finished woodwork, spacious accommodations, large galley, the preferred two-stateroom layout with forward and aft “owners” staterooms, two head compartments with showers and two zone Dometic Cruisair SMX  air conditioning systems.  Complete with a cradle and cover for storage.

 One of only a few available on the Great Lakes.  For you east coast saltwater sailors, this freshwater boat should be on your shortlist!

Dave Regnet learned to sail when he was 8 at summer camp on Lake Chautaugua. He returned 7 more summers because sailing (and teaching others to sail) became his passion. Dave grew up in Buffalo where he has been active in the Buffalo Harbor Sailing Club since the early 1980s. In 2007, Dave moved to the Dallas/Fort Worth area and became active in the Lake Grapevine Sailing Club. Returning north in 2010, Dave and his wife, Rebecca, joined the St. Marys Boat Club located on Grand Lake St. Marys. He was club champion in 2017. Dave’s retirement from over 30 years in manufacturing, sales management, and plant operations allows him to pursue his passion for boating by adding value to buyers and sailors alike in the Sandusky area of Lake Erie.
