I think the worst thing I have ever heard of a Najad was"Oi, she has teak decks", or perhaps, "what? no skeg?!". In other words, their only negatives (other than the high price) tend to be things that relate to the viewers bias or perspective. Najad's are well built and well laid out, but the company has struggled with financial stability recently. Their more recent designs are more performance oriented and have strayed from their earlier roots which consisted of longer keels, skegs, etc., and higher displacement. Much prettier and more fun in their current incarnation IMHO but many cruisers and some older Najad owners rue the changes.

Mille feuille or Eclair au chocolate, it's matter of taste, but both are built by a fine bakery.

I Have been inside a 332 and a 355, sailed for 2 hours a 355, i was well impressed. Their furnishing don't have any comparisson to some "IKEA"look like inside boats.

What i would like to is their reliability.If some can help me it would be great !

Regards

These are highly reliable and well-built blue water cruising boats.

I was at Genoa, there was only a big najad, ( as there was in Cannes). There was a smaller one at Southampton.

If you want to evaluate swedish boats go to the open weekend in Orust, where HR, Malo , Najad etc are built, fantastic opportunity to see inside the factories etc.

I have sailed Malos Najads and HRs , all well put together, hard to justify the price difference
