A syndicate around the powerboat producer Nord West, intend to place a bid on the Najad sailing company who recently filed for bankruptcy on the 9th of August 2011.
This last production year the Najad yard produced 25 high quality sailing yachts, and had a significant service operation around the establishment in Henån on the island of Orust. Nord West has their production facilities and main offices nearby on Vindön and has produced 37 high quality powerboats.
” It is with great pleasure we can participate in the reconstruction of the Najad brand”, says Benny Martinsson, founder and owner of Nord West . Najad represents one of the most respected producers of high qualitative sailing yachts in the world, with a brand name that few can surpass. We are very familiar with the business since we are neighbors here on Orust and together with Nord West, Najad will have all the possibilities to regain the position as one of the world’s best sailing yacht producers.”
