Najad 440 AC delivers modern and beautiful lines from the pen of Judel&Vrolijk. In this yacht you will find a spacious aft cockpit with double helm stations, and three spacious double cabins down below. 440 AC is a model that continued the modernization that Najad went through in these years. The yacht is strikingly modern still, and in many ways, it is hard to find a clear competitor if you are in the market for an aft cockpit boat on this quality level and with this style. When mentioning style, it is worth pointing out the interior styling, with cues taken from a more “super yacht” oriented design language with all details from the upper echelon in quality and style.
With the aft cockpit on this model, you have spacious and well laid out cockpit, making it convenient to move about the cockpit, both from the helm stations and forward, as well as back to the swim platform and all the rest in the aft sections of the yacht.
A large section of the cockpit is easily enclosed with en extension to the sprayhood, essentially making this a canvas substitute for a hard top. As it possible to sail the boat with this up, longer passages in cold and/or wet weather becomes surprisingly comfortable. The instrumentation and controls onboard also make it possible to sail the boat from the covers of this sprayhood extension.
The yacht is rigged with a three-spreader Electric in-mast Furling. Two cockpit winches are electric, and it is fast and easy boat to sail shorthanded. Speed, safety, and comfort are all guiding principles here.
The deck and the coach roof are covered with beautiful teak, maintained to the highest standard, which is very evident from just looking at it.
Below decks, there are three spacious double cabins, a well-organized galley with ample stowage, two bathrooms, both with electric toilets and showers, and an inviting salon, where you will find the nav stations with its controls on the starboard side. Elegant mahogany and elegant padded panels, as well as leather clad, stainless steel handholds, are all part of the superyacht inspired styling that greets you as you step below. Worth mentioning is the upholstery and especially the mattresses in all cabins. Comfortable sleep is pretty much a guarantee.
The yacht has been winterized indoors at Orust Yacht Service, in a heated storage, something that clearly has a positive impact on the condition she is in. If you are in the market for a three-cabin aft cockpit yacht in 44 feet size bracket built to the highest standards, it does not get any better than this.
