Najad 390 - USD 95,000

In the hands of a very discerning yachtsman since 2008, this yacht comes to the market with many substantial and intelligent improvements. The teak decks were professionally removed in Thailand in 2012 and replaced with four layers of glass mat and AWLGRIP paint. That same year all sea cocks were replaced, new bronze rigging screws and new swages fitted, fuel tank, new in 2009, emptied and cleaned,

Najad yachts are solid world cruisers and were built without cost restraint resulting in such high quality yachts. Flush decks make for roomy interiors and an easy deck to work on. They sail extremely well and the hulls are Lloyds certified.


Last haul out December 2014.




Inspection by appointment with exclusive brokers YBC.
