Magnus Ridderstad, Najad/Maxi Marketing manager, has invited all Maxi Owners to meet the new executives at the Southampton Boatshow. They will be pleased to outline their plans for the future of these famous brands and will be on the Maxi-Najads stand M490 on the afternoons of Friday 10 & Saturday 11 September 2010. Magnus will also be at the Boatshow on Sunday 12 Sept.
On show at Southampton will be the latest Maxi 1300. Other boats in the current Maxi range include Maxi 1060 and SM40, the formidable 40 foot Match Racer.
Pelle Pettersson, the well known Maxi designer and medallist in the ’64 and ’72 Olympics, is joining Bernd Arvidsson (one of the founders of Najad yachts) and other world-class racing and yacht designer/architects on an Advisory Board to the restructured Najad-Maxi Group.
The Najad- Maxi group is to be managed by Chairman Hans Johansson and new CEO Mikael Gustavsson, both of whom have extensive experience of the Swedish boat industry and international racing and will be taking up their positions in the coming weeks. The previous Chairman, Stuart Lawson of Animatrix, and CEO Per Lindquist, will continue in non-executive roles having overseen over eight million euros of investment over the past year by Animatrix, the investment vehicle of Rupert Lywood, a London financier who is another keen Najad sailor.
The MaxiOwners Association believe this series of announcements represent a very credible and promising new start for the new Najad -Maxi brand owners. Your committee has been privileged with hearing the early intentions for the future and have full confidence that this management team is well positioned to carry Maxi and Najad forward into the future as performance and quality boats.
Our Best Wishes go to Pelle and Najad-Maxi Yachts.
