NIKE is a very special yacht. Built for these owners to MCA Category Zero, she is perfectly equipped for serious blue water which she has accomplished with verve. Meticulously maintained from the beginning this yacht is perfect for a couple or a family to sail the seven seas aboard. She is also fully equipped to charter at the highest level if this is a requirement for her new owner.
NIKE is part of our family. She is the second Najad that we have owned, we had her built specifically to suit our needs for blue water cruising. We wanted her to comply with the very strict requirements of the MCA to Category 0 so that we could be sure that she would be safe in any ocean – wherever we found ourselves. We also wanted to do some limited charter which we have done, and have made many new friends this way. We did not want to have any limits to our sailing programme, hence it was important to us to be able to sail with no restrictions on our route.
NIKE has always looked after us and we have returned the compliment. She has been constantly updated and maintained to the highest standards. We are therefore confident that her next owners will have a yacht that is completely ready for serious cruising. NIKE is a well-mannered sailing yacht, a comfortable home and she is easily handled by a crew of 2 – we have sailed her thousands of miles 2 handed very happily.
We will be very sorry to say good bye to her, but we have decided that we would like a larger yacht for our future sailing programme. If this were not the case, we would not dream of selling her.
