The Najad 440 was renewed as najad 441 in 1996, after nine years in production. Improvements were concentrated on the hull lines, were the a new wing keel was added and a long separate semibalanced rudder installed, replacing the old long keel and a shorter rudder with skeg. The new Najad 441 was a succes and remained in production until the new decade, new Century and new Millenium arrived: the last unit coming out from the Yard in 2001. It is a model of a luxury out of reach for the new mass production boats: think only about the amount of teak that it is needed to laid out the flush deck of these units! A deck very liveable and elegant that makes for a strong point, one of the many that this model shows. The N441 was faster and easier to handle compared to the 440 and she did not renounce at all to the high volumes down below made to perfection by Najad's proverbial craftmanship. Her sturdy building either in the hull and of the rig guarantee unlimited blue water cruising habilities. Its high top-sides and central cockpit give huge room down below and a deep safety feeling. The abundance of lockers, cupboards and drawers allow comfortable living on board for two couples of sailors. The Shimoda, the unit on offer, will be found in good structural shape. She has not been very much sailed in last years and she needs light cleaning work and servicing, particularly outside (polishing top-sides and coach-roof). Her teak deck has been recently reviewed and all the lacking caps replaced. She is a commendable vessel for long cruising in full safety.
