This is the first boat introduced by the company’s current ownership. It’s a solidly built serious cruiser that embodies all the traditional hallmarks of the brand, including a solid windscreen and single wheel, but within an updated all-new design by Farr Yacht Design. Construction is of vinylester resin throughout, with keel and rig loads distributed through a substantial grid system.
It’s offered in both centre cockpit and aft cockpit formats, with interiors by renowned superyacht stylist Ken Freivokh. Both models are very spacious inside, with good use of space with excellent stowage, plus plenty of grab handles for moving around safely.
The forward cabin has a big peninsula bunk, plenty of stowage and options of a heads compartment, heads plus separate shower, or simply a large walk-in closet/wardrobe that adds an enormous amount of easily accessed stowage space. The galley is similarly excellent, with worktop space, amenities and storage that would put many larger designs to shame.
A high degree of interior customisation is possible – one of Najad’s key claims is that the company will build exactly the boat each client wants. For instance, the standard specification shows a small navigation station, but this can be replaced with a larger forward facing chart table, which would double as a decent office area when in port.
The aft cockpit version has a drop-down bathing platform, but this is not an open transom design, which gives the impression that you are further from the water than some recent designs. It’s a size of boat, combined with style and quality of build that promises supremely comfortable living along with relative ease of handling.
A high level of specification is fitted as standard. For instance, all switching functions of the electrical system and electronics can be controlled from the on deck or nav station MFDs, or via smartphone or tablet. However, there’s also an expansive options list with several hundred options to allow buyers to hone the boat to their requirements. From previous experience the yard expects most owners to specify around an extra €70-100,000 of extras.
