RCD Status: The yacht conforms with the essential safety requirements of Directive 94/25EC (Recreational Craft Directive) and is a category A

The yacht is also built in conformity with Germanischer Lloyd GL 100 A5 regulations covering the hull, deck and superstructure, main bulkheads, engine bed, chain-plate fastenings, stem fittings, engine installation, plumbing installation and electrical and electronics installations.


The hull is built in a sandwich construction, using the epoxy vacuum infusion technique. Part of the construction is Divinycell. Divinycell is a resilient, high-density PVC foam with sealed cells that do not absorb water. Density (hardness) is increased and the material is reinforced at points in the hull where equipment is to be fitted.

The joining and lamination of the hull are done so that the central part of the hull becomes its strongest point.

A base grid is integrated into the centre of the hull. A strong, complex construction which runs from the upper edge of the keel, up to the sole and lengthways and crossways throughout the entire boat. This provides torsional strength and builds a foundation for the furniture and engine mountings.

The hull halves are laminated together into a complete unit and lifted out of the mould.

White gelcoat finish with ‘Najad’ carmine red gelcoat style lines.


The deck and superstructure are built on the same principles as the hull. From the outside inwards, using separate moulds.

Before the deck is laid on the hull the fixtures for the interior of the superstructure and bulkheads are fitted.

The deck and hull is bolted and glued to create an especially strong and watertight bond at the toerail and further reinforced with lifeline stanchion supports which are bolted through the toerail joint.

All bulkheads are laminated from both sides.

The hull is laid up with epoxy barrier coats below the waterline for optimal protection against osmosis.

Teak laid cockpit sole and cockpit seating
Teak-laid bathing platform steps inset to transom with stainless steel bathing ladder

The keel has a short body and sports a narrower shape and a delta-formed heavy ballast bulb for a deep centre of gravity and excellent stability.

Balanced GRP spade-rudder, designed for comfortable cruising and easy manoeuvring.
