The Najad 395 AC (aft cockpit) is part of the all new Najad 395 range, designed to be a “mini superyacht” in a joint venture between Najad, Farr Yacht Design – The top racing-yacht design team in the world and Ken Freivokh Design – Superyacht stylist, architect, and interior designer.
The 395 AC represents the synthesis of Najad’s storied history as a premier custom-made Swedish yacht and the modern innovations that have changed sailing like a voluminous interior made possible by a high freeboard, saildrive shaft, a spade rudder for nimble maneuvering and an award-winning OceanVolt electric propulsion system.
One of the first things you notice when you step aboard is that the mainsheet is attached to the to p of a sleek looking arch. Then, you scratch your head as you look around the large cockpit and say, “Wait, did I get on a 43 foot boat? I thought this was a 39 footer.” Despite being large, it is not an open cockpit like on racers or performance cruisers, but instead there is an aft bench enclosing the cockpit with a retractable swim platform.
The roomy cockpit allows for a large drop-leaf table and long cockpit seats. A windshield is standard and makes a great base for the canvas dodger.
The rest of the deck is very clean with flush hatches and stanchion bases on the low toerail and jib tracks on top of the coach roof.
The Selden twin spreader rig is keel stepped providing strength no matter the conditions and the sail plan is enough to pass other cruising boats of its size, but not big enough to be overpowered when the weather turns bad.
The interior, like all Najads, is the pinnacle of luxury. And like all Najads, it is quite hard to describe the interior, because you have so many choices in how you want the interior laid out.
You can have a double berth forward or you can have V-berths. You can have two doubles aft or you can have one double aft. You can have a sit down nav desk if you combine the head with the aft cabin. You can have Streisand chairs to starboard in the salon or opposing settees. You can have another head forward, or just a shower stall or it can be what looks like a “vanity” area. With so many options, you get to choose the layout that is perfect for you that helps you enjoy the comfort and luxury of a Najad while on the water.
But no matter what layout you choose, you are guaranteed to get the Swedish craftsmanship of a Najad with fine joinery, elegant wood and high quality upholstery options. So sit back, enjoy a nice cup of hot tea or coffee and enjoy a pleasant evening with loved ones or friends.
