Najad 440 CC Yacht Coastal Sailing
about the boat

Runaway was built by highly skilled Najad craftsmen on the island of Henan in Sweden. We visited the factory during construction and added several optional extras, such as all electric sail furling and winches, and, as we were bound for the Mediterranean, a passarelle, air-conditioning in the aft cabin and an automatic ice-maker.

Runaway was launched in July 2008. After our sea trials in Swedish waters, we loaded her onto a truck and she was driven down to Port Grimaud in the South of France. From there she made her way to the award-winning Marina Di Scarlino in Follonica Tuscany, her home base where we own a berth for her, which is also for sale (click here for details). Every summer we have sailed the nearby Islands, Elba, Corsica, and Sardinia before cruising via Sicily to the Ionian in 2013. Runaway is now lying in Lefkas Marina in Greece, under the watchful eyes of Nikos and Kostas two of the most meticulous marine engineers we have met in over thirty years sailing.



We have sailed Runaway for a maximum of six weeks each summer since 2008, a total of 36 weeks. She has about 600 hours on the engine and about 30 hours on the generator. She has never been chartered or sailed by anybody else. When not in use she has been lifted out and has thus spent most of her life out of the water. During this time she has been cleaned monthly and regularly maintained, with checks on the engine, the generator, batteries and all other systems. Every year a pre-launch coat of anti fouling has been applied.

We have found the Najad 440 CC to be an exceptionally easy boat for two person handling, she is responsive under sail and everything about her, from the joinery, to the teak decks, the rigging, and the sumptuous owners' cabin and en suite head reflects the quality and attention to detail that is the hallmark of the Najad brand.

Runaway comfortably accommodates two guests in the comfortable forecabin, with separate head and there are two additional bunks in the saloon with lee cloths for even more visitors.

We have loved sailing Runaway for the last six years. We are only selling because our family is expanding and we need a bigger boat!

Runaway is fitted with a 425L fuel tank, she uses less that 1 litre per mile when motoring, and has separate holding tanks for black and grey water, she meets all current EU environmental regulations for sailing craft, is British Registered, UK VAT paid and offered with all her extras, for sale at £385,000. See her at Levkas Marina, where she will be out of the water, via flights to Preveza, Nicos and Kostas will happily show you around.


The Price

Runaway is offered for sale in pounds sterling at £360,000 (price reduced).

In 2008 Runaway cost €720,000 including all extras and VAT (the order acknowledgement from Najad and the VAT certificate (paid in sterling) are both available for inspection).

Today, a new Najad 440 CC, including the same extras and VAT paid, would cost around €775,000.

"A yacht in which you can sail around the world or a yacht for you to share the very best of moments with family and friends."
