I think that for companies like HR, Najad, etc.. it is a mistake to build boats like Bavaria
: many, cheaper and all look and designed the same.
Why people got Najad (or HR, e.g.) was because they were different - stronger, heavier, safer. They also looked different.
Off course back then Najad could sell say 10 boats a year.
I have seen a big, brand new Najad last year that after only a minor crossing had problems in the engine
room and in the steering
department. Is this what one expects from a good boat?
Sad news and a warning for other quality (anymore?) boatyards
