ELECTRIC MOTOR! The newest Najad, the 505 CC, has an increased amount of natural light, improved technical installations, larger winches and more.

For a 50-foot cruiser she is extremely efficient in the water and responsive at helm. She is also very secure and stable in even the toughest of conditions due to her sturdy construction and robust design. This is of course in line with what you expect from a Najad. The hull is shaped
for excellent wave piercing capabilities, both under sail and while using the electric motor. This is key for comfort on long distance cruising.

Since the cockpit is far away from the sea it is very safe in hard weather and it is easy to control the boat from the central positioning. Aft of the cockpit is a large sun bathing deck. The wide transom with the large bathing platform is perfect for water sport activities.

All but traditional.
This magnificent yacht has been created out of our core principals for quality, performance, safety, comfort and good sea-keeping ability. Apart from the centre cockpit layout, there’s almost nothing ‘traditional’ about the entire yacht. In fact, range designers judel/vrolijk & co have made a statement out of every feature. The narrow waterline entry, fairly plumbbow and U-shaped sections aft are indicators of the kind of performance you can expect. Underneath the hull a delta bulb keel and balanced spade rudder with no skeg are standard fit. This dynamic combination offers good feel on the helm and quicker tacking, with the added benefit of easier close-quarters manoeuvrability.
