WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
On the island of Orust, Sweden, the boat-building tradition is long-standing and can be traced back to at least the 12th century. Since 1971 Najad has made dreams come true creating yachts that combine excellent sailing with timeless design and beautiful craftsmanship.
The beginning of Najad, in 1970, Torwald Karlsson and Berndt Arvidsson called Olle Enderlein who said: “Of course I will draw you a fine boat, how big should it be?” – “Around 10 metres,” they said, and he made an outline proposal that we extended, expanded and changed. After all, one wants to have as much volume as possible in a boat, a little too much sometimes. In the end, they settled upon a design that was 10.30m long and 3.10m wide.
