RCD Status: The yacht conforms with the essential safety requirements of Directive 94/25EC (Recreational Craft Directive) and is a category A
The yacht is also built in conformity with Germanischer Lloyd GL 100 A5 regulations covering the hull, deck and superstructure, main bulkheads, engine bed, chain-plate fastenings, stem fittings, engine installation, plumbing installation and electrical and electronics installations.
The hull is built in a sandwich construction, using the epoxy vacuum infusion technique. Part of the construction is Divinycell. Divinycell is a resilient, high-density PVC foam with sealed cells that do not absorb water. Density (hardness) is increased and the material is reinforced at points in the hull where equipment is to be fitted.
The joining and lamination of the hull are done so that the central part of the hull becomes its strongest point.
A base grid is integrated into the centre of the hull. A strong, complex construction which runs from the upper edge of the keel, up to the sole and lengthways and crossways throughout the entire boat. This provides torsional strength and builds a foundation for the furniture and engine mountings.
The hull halves are laminated together into a complete unit and lifted out of the mould.
White gelcoat finish with ‘Najad’ carmine red gelcoat style lines.
DECK AND SUPERSTRUCTURE
The deck and superstructure are built on the same principles as the hull. From the outside inwards, using separate moulds.
Before the deck is laid on the hull the fixtures for the interior of the superstructure and bulkheads are fitted.
The deck and hull is bolted and glued to create an especially strong and watertight bond at the toerail and further reinforced with lifeline stanchion supports which are bolted through the toerail joint.
All bulkheads are laminated from both sides.
The hull is laid up with epoxy barrier coats below the waterline for optimal protection against osmosis.

SLEEPS SIX IN TWO CABINS PLUS SALOON
The Najad 355 easily sleeps four in two private, handsomely appointed cabins and two more in the saloon on settees equipped with lee cloths. In every interior space except the heads, mahogany bulkheads and cabinetry, accented with jatoba, and a jatoba and wenge cabin sole lend a rich warmth to the abundant natural light below. Windows, hatches, and opening portlights are curtained when privacy is required. Two dorades provide additional ventilation.
Thoughtfully placed lighting fixtures brighten the night and, with their dimmer switches, can help illuminate brightly when there are chores to be done or set a more restful mood for more leisurely evening activities.

Both the galley and head are served by the yacht's hot and cold pressure water system.
Custom made mattress covers and duvets by Nauteriors for both cabins ensuring and exact fit.
Here's the layout, fore to aft
Firm, quality foam mattresses provide luxurious comfort on the roomy vee berth in the private forward cabin. 6'3" standing headroom eases clothing changes and two full height lockers, one for hanging items and the other with shelves for folded items, swallow up your wardrobe. There are additional storage bins under the vee berth, excellent lighting fixtures, shelves, a useful storage cabinet over the foot of the berth, and a large, clear overhead hatch for natural light, ventilation and safety.
The modern lines of the saloon are softened and enhanced by burnished mahogany, the sturdy practical blue fabric of the settees bracketing the cabin, and the quality hardware and fixtures used throughout the yacht. To port, an L-shaped settee corrals the drop leaf dining table with it's built in storage compartment. Open, the table can easily seat six. More storage is provided by handsome custom factory fitted cabinets behind the settees. Even more is tucked away beneath them. A sizeable overhead hatch, plus two dorades can add ventilation.
Aft of the starboard settee, features a hinge-top desk and houses the DC electrical panel, 12v DC and AC outlets, VHF radio, a multi instrument repeater and controls for the yacht's Eberspacher diesel heater.
Roomy, bright and easy to maintain head. With Corian floor panels and vanity countertop, the head includes a full-standing headroom shower compartment with a skylight and electric sump pump, a Jabsco toilet, a wash basin, medicine and storage cabinets, and a holding tank monitor.
The L-shaped galley, to port aft of the dinette, features a Force 10 two-burner propane stove with oven and grill, an Isotherm refrigerator, a large, deep, double stainless steel sink with mixer tap, Corian countertops, a fold-away counter extension, and large amounts of storage in drawers, cabinets and shelves. An opening port provides ventilation.
The private master cabin, aft of the galley, provides a sprawling double berth, a voluminous hanging locker, more storage under the berth, and good cross ventilation with two opening ports
