Thorwald Karlsson and Bernt Arvidsson established the Najad Yard in 1967. Both were raised in boatbuilders families. Thorwald studied Naval Engineering and he had a good ground in nautical design. He designed some of the first succesful models of the yard, among them the Najad 360. This model had a long life of more than ten years in production (1984-1995). She was a very elegant yacht with a roomy and liveable interior. Towards the end of her career, due to the continued success that the model had on the market, it was decided to renew it somehow, instead of replacing it with a new model. Thus was born the N 361, in a way that the Yard was to repeat many times in the future with their most succesful models. The main differences between the two models are: the 361 has the ballast outside the hull, bolted to the keel and has a deeper draft. The stem has a longer overhang and chainplates are placed closer to the roof, thus allowing a better upwind performance. Below decks the lay-out is similar, but many details of design and finish are improved, giving to the model a more modern and cosy ambience. The N 361 was again a succesful model and was in production for seven more years. The offered unit, hull number 6, is in very good shape. Her present owner renewed the Sikafles on deck, fully serviced te engine and has many spare parts (belts, impellers, filters, fuses). He installed some new electronic devices and a bow-thruster. This year (2021) all seacoks were replaced. The interior is also well cared of, in winter a carpet is fitted to the pavement. This small yacht is a really commendable blue water cruiser: she has huge winches, powerful engine, good sail area, ample interior with a big galley and good sized head, plenty of fuel and water capacity and electric power installed.
