… for the Max from your sailing!

News » The future for Najad is secured

Dear customer and sailing friends

It is with great pleasure that we now can welcome our new owner Nord West Yachts, as the final part of giving Najad a long term profitable future.

The last year has been very challenging with many tough decisions and would like to take the opportunity to thank all our employees, board and the former owner Animatrix Capital LLP for big contribution, support  and loyalty. The employees has achieved many and big improvements in both sales, quality and production, during the year.

From the day, when the only way forward was bankruptcy, we have been working hard to find the perfect owner of Najad. In Nord West there is good management and excellent craftsmen. Since they are also situated on Orust, I am very sure that the very famous “Orust-quality”, that is wellknown in a Najad, will stay with the Najad brand for many years ahead. I am therefore absolutely sure that Nord West ownership is the perfect harbor for future Najad yachts.

This is now the last part of my assignment to save Najad and it is time for setting sails towards new challenges. Since it, hopefully, will be some more time for sailing next summer, maybe we will meet again out on the ocean.

Until meeting again

Have a nice winter and take good care of your yacht and the love will last forever.


Your sincerely

Mikael Gustavsson

former CEO Najadvarvet AB
