General Comments:
This bluewater Ingrid has a glamorous history. She is the famous “Nada” that previously belonged to best-selling marine author Nigel Calder. This well-known boat has appeared on the cover of Cruising World (November 1997), and Ocean Navigator (November/December 1992). She has been featured on a Hallmark calendar (1990, “The Adventure of Sailing” calendar) and has appeared in many magazines including Sail, Cruising World, Ocean Navigator, Professional Boatbuilder, Yachting Monthly, and Yachting World. Although her hull was laid up in 1979, she was not launched until 1982, and underwent an extensive refit in 1995 which included conversion from a ketch to a cutter, a new mast, boom, and engine. In 2003 she got a new mainsail and heavy 130% genoa with new Hood Vectran sails.
