BUILDER’S COMMENTS: “Designing a sailing yacht, capable of sailing all over the world and at the same time being comfortable and safe for the crew, requires a great experience of long-distance cruising yachts. The result is a Najad 490. A 49 foot sailing yacht with a powerful, extremely seaworthy hull of modern design. The bolted keel of lead is relatively long in order to maintain course stability and a smooth action at sea. When handling on land the yacht can stand on the keel without support in the fore-and-aft line. The rudder is semi-balanced with a strong skeg, which ensures the steering is light and positive. The Strong floor plat construction and stringers are laminated into the hull in order to take the external and rig load. An integral swimming platform is built into the stern for comfort and safety. The Najad 490 offers, due to her size and volume, a variety of individual layout solutions. These layouts are designed by our design department and together with the client the boat is planned for 2-8 persons. Hereby, the Najad 490 is always a very personal yacht in a class of her own. Built according to Germanischer Lloyd’s Specification: Each boat is designed and built to Germanischer Lloyd’s specifications for “GL100 A5.” This includes hull, deck, superstructure, main bulkheads, engine bed, chain plate attachments and sterm fittings as well as plumbing, electricity and electronics. A Germanischer Lloyd’s Certificate is supplied to each boat.”
