What will make a sailor interested in a motoryacht. There are a lot of things that can affect this decision. The possibility to reach new places is most important and age is probably another factor influencing the decision to create a new exiting boatlife. After many years of sailing in Scandinavian waters as well as in Germany and Holland we were looking for new experiences.We hade no wish to go around the world, rather to continue boatlife in a more comfortable way than in a sailboat.
By a pure coincidense we happend to visit a speach about the rivers and canals in Europe. This was a new world for us – you can reach the Med. close to Marseille or even the Black Sea via Donau – 20.000 km rivers and canals!! With a comfortable and seaworthy trawler it was obvious that we should be able to explore not only the inland waterways through Europe but also to continue out in the Med.
Our next step was to find a suitable boat. For us it was obvious to look for some kind of a trawler defined as a comfortable, seaworthy, strong, reliable and economical boat. The Najad Trawler was our decision.
