We have been sailing now for nearly 40 years. We started on Rutland Water fleet racing Dart 18s.
When our son was born we progressed to a 23ft daysailer. After a few years we felt limited by the lake and bought 31ft British Hunter on the East Coast.

This wetted our appetite and about 15 years ago we bought a virtually new Najad 380 in North Wales. She was stunning, powerful, incredibly seaworthy and took us to a completely new level of sailing. We had her about 7 years and did many crossings to Holland, Channel Islands and Brittany. We learned a huge amount from her.

We started looking for a strong Bluewater Cruisier in 2013 and focused on Najads because we were so pleased with our Najad 380. We decided that the Najad 490 was a bit too big and a bit too expensive.

We chose Infinity B a Najad 460 for the following reasons.:

• Great size for us.
• Bunk room for son’s friends
• Two huge storage cupboards in passageway for bikes and foul weather gear
• Fabulous aft cabin
• Watermaker
• Genset
• Easy sail handling from a very safe and secure cockpit
• Light use
• And overall great value for money.

We had planned to keep Infinity B for very many years and we have invested heavily in improvements to Infinity B which include:

• New sails, main, genoa, staysail, storm jib and trisail (and track).
• Electric furlers for main and Genoa.
• New Manson anchor, HT chain and Lofrans windlass
• Dyneema halyards, improved running back stays.
• New electronics, chart plotter, radar, course computer, AIS etc etc.
• New charging systems, wind gen, Balmar alternator, solar, victron mains charger, inverter.
• Upgraded galley, corian, GN Espace, freezer etc.
• New washing machine.
• New engine Yanmar 4JH4 100hp.

We had originally planned on sailing to New Zealand but spent 6 seasons in The Caribbean instead, where we have had an absolutely fantastic time. Mandy was not keen on a Pacific Passage so we have decided to sell Infinity B. We have bought a beautiful apartment in the French Alps (Haute-Savoie} where Mandy can ski in the winter and where we can walk in the summer.


Designing a sailing yacht, capable of sailing all over the world and at the same time being comfortable and safe for the crew, requires a great experience of long-distance cruising yachts. The result is the Najad 460. A 46 foot sailing yacht with a powerful, extremely seaworthy hull of modern design.
