    Najad - 520 for sale

    Sailing BoatsNajadModel 520United Kingdom

    Remarks :
    This Najad 520 is the perfect blue water cruiser, during her current ownership she has been blue water cruised and has been fitted out to achieve a level of comfort at sea. He inventory is vast and has had both engines replaced in 2006.
    She is currently berthed here in Plymouth at Mayflower marina where she is sitting on the hard standing. 

    Owners Remarks:

    We bought Lady Sara in 2006 for bluewater cruising. We chose her because, as a ketch, she had a flexible sail plan which could be managed by 2 people, but she was large enough to be a home when we arrived at destinations.
    With the twin engines, props, and two masts, she has a lot of built-in redundancy, we were glad to be in such a heavily built 
    boat when beating to windward at 6kts in stormy conditions heading for the Straits of Juan de Fuca.
    Before leaving we did extensive preparatory work including replacing both engines. We spent 3 years living aboard, during which we crossed the Atlantic (ARC 2006), spent time in the Caribbean (where she had previously cruised under a former owner), transited the Panama Canal, crossed the Pacific to Hawaii, crossed back to Canada/NW US. We finished our travels in 2009, and stored her ashore, rig down and shrink wrapped. In 2014 we recommissioned her and sailed to San Francisco. In 2016 she was delivered back to the UK. Due to a move abroad (landlocked!). She is a solid, safe boat, ideal for bluewater cruising.
