Fantastic example of the Judel Vrolijk Najad 400. Extensively upgraded in the past 12-24 months and boasting a very high cruising specification.



The Najad 400 meets the highest performance and layout standards for long coastal and ocean sailing, and is the result of many years experience in designing exceptional sailing yachts.


It has been designed with a long sailing waterline and the stern raised out of the water to achieve a small wet area. The broad stern makes room for the spacious aft cabin and the integral swimming platform in the transom for comfort/security as well as increases the stability and the downwind performance. The sharp pointed forebody is designed to prevent the yacht slowing down in rough and heavy sea. The keel is long enough to achieve a good moderation and to reduce the centre of gravity.


This particular example boasts a very specification including full teak decks, larger (75hp) engine option, bowthruster, wind generator, upgraded battery capacity, radar/plotter and genneker. It has also benefitted from an extensive program of refit both in her current and previous ownerships.
