Broker’s Comments

The aim for the successful design of the Najad 440 was to create a luxury, highly exclusive and superb sailing yacht, capable of being handled comfortably, effectively and safely by a small crew.

The outcome from the combination of naval architect Judel/Vrolijk & Co, interior designer Rhodes Young and Najadvarvets craftsmen, was a ground-breaking, exceptional ‘world class’ yacht. The Najad 440 is equally suited to the ocean adventurer as to the gentler life of coastal cruising and island hopping.

The Najad 440 comes in two different versions, AC (aft cockpit) and CC (center cockpit). This Najad 440 FLYING PENGUIN is a CC version that was delivered in 2008. This means it offers a well-protected cockpit ideal for ocean sailing where all sail handling and instruments are always close to hand. The sprayhood and cockpit tent offers good protection also in cold climate sailing conditions.

The interior layout offers a large owners aft cabin with double berth and an en-suite heads with shower. The forward guest cabin also offers a double berth, an en-suite heads with shower and plenty of storage space. A large galley is located to port of the entrance extending aft wards and the navigation table with a comfortable seat is located directly to starboard of the entrance. The saloon has a C-sofa to port and two seats to starboard. A superb layout for an ocean going yacht!

The interior is made of selected mahogany with floorboards in Jatoba and blue coloured upholstery.

At the moment FLYING PENGUIN is en route from Caribbean to Europe on board a freight ship. The yacht is planned to arrive in Germany in the beginning of June and should be in Henån, at Berthon Scandinavia’s showing dock, around beginning of July!

Owner’s Comments

We bought the yacht in Fort Lauderdale 2017 from the first Swedish owner and had it shipped to Sweden in the autumn of 2017. During 2018, we made a general upgrade in order to have the best modern equipment for our sailing trip and stay in the Caribbean. We have been sailing this area of the world and had a fantastic time onboard, now for almost 2 years. FLYING PENGUIN will soon be shipped back to Europe and be available at Berthon Scandinavia´s showing dock in Henån from approx. end of June 2021. Now the FLYING PENGUIN is set for the next owner and looking forward to new adventures.
