Sailboat Buyer Guide 2001 – Comments
The Najad 391 is designed with a large, uncluttered, flush teak deck. The teak planks are curved to follow the shear of the hull with solid teak fitted around the outer deck edge and hatches.
The cockpit provides good protection behind the toughened glass windscreen which is further enhanced by a sprayhood that folds flat when not in use.
The hull has been completely redesigned and now has an integral bathing platform in the transom. The new, sleek hull has a long sailing waterline and a flatter stern, which improves water flow.
Najad pay a lot of attention to the interior layout of their yachts because they feel it must be practical at seas as well as comfortable in the harbour. To achieve this, Najad have utilised the space to provide ample storage and a safe working environment which will suit both long distance and weekend sailors. The style and finish of the mahogany interior is very special and gives the boat a natural feeling of quality.
The Najad 391 is designed to be a modern long distance cruiser with the highest sailing performance.
The keel and rudder are built up by NACA wing section. The fin keel is relatively long for good course stability and motion at sea. The ballast lead keel with a ratio of 44 per cent is bolted on and a small wing at the bottom of the keel reduced waterflow which results in less drag. The rudder is semi-balanced with a strong half-skeg, which ensure that the steering is light and positive.
This combination of keel and rudder design enables the boat to have a turning circle of her own length. The hull, keel, rudder and rig design have improved the sheeting angles to 10/14 degrees and this has resulted in increased performance and speed. The strong bottom grid and stringers are laminated into the hull in order to take the external and rig loads.
The 391 has got an open uncluttered flush deck with a small coachroof aft which improves the headroom in the aft cabin. The windscreen is forward of the instrument panel in the cockpit to create more space below the sprayhood. The cockpit recesses in the coamings are flush which gives a more comfortable back rest. An integral swimming platform is built into the stern for comfort and security.
Below deck the layout is basically the same as in many of the other Najad models. Our experience has shown that this layout process to be the best at sea.
Based on modern techniques and many years of experience, the Najad 391 is a product of perfection from Najad.
