Najad Beacon / Sailing Yacht

Najad Beacon
Najad Beacon

The Najad Beacon is a vision of a future sailing experience. At 15m, this concept is the flagship of the Najad brand, using Scandinavian design to achieve a balance of simplicity and functionality. Najad’s iconic hull stripe has functionally evolved into inset glazing, offering natural light to the interior while keeping the brand heritage alive. A unique living experience is created with the transparent transom, using inset glazing to let in lots of natural light. Topside, the innovative deck layout separates the helm from passenger seating, keeping family and friends safe while giving the captain control and confidence of dual aft helms.
