Broker's Comments

This is a dream boat. In every respect she stands for class and quality. Her level of equipment is precisely what you would expect from an ocean going yacht that is self sufficient at sea for weeks on end.This particular boat has had one single owner from new. He and his wife have cruised the Med, Atlantic, Caribbean and then the Pacific all the way to New Zealand. They make great advocates for Najad yachts because their boat never let them down and protected them from the most frightening of mid-ocean squalls. This boat is now tied up in Gibraltar and she is pulling on her dock lines wanting to put to sea and re-acquaint herself with the dolphins and whales she has already met.

In excellent condition this is a must-see if Najad or solid quality built boats is your dream.
