Manufacturer Provided Description
The Najad 373, being a modern cruising sailing yacht, meeting the highest performance and layout standards for long coastal and ocean sailing, is the result of many years experience. The Najad 373 has thus been designed with a long sailing waterline and the stern raised out of the water to achieve a small wet area. The broad stern makes room for the spacious aft cabin and the integral swimming platform in the transom for comfort/security as well as increases the stability and the downwind performance. The sharp pointed forebody is designed to prevent the yacht slowing down in rough and heavy sea.
