EU VAT PAIDAdditional video footage available upon request Designed by Carl Beyer, this high quality Najad Aphrodite 42 ketch has proven herselfvery capable in any type of sea. A true Bluewater cruiser with a thick fiberglass hull andcapable 65KW Volvo Penta engine, she is best suited to someone looking to voyagewithout boundaries. The ketch sail plan, with choice of rolling furler or rolling self-tackingjib, a rolling main sail, and a classic-rigged reef able mizzen really allows for a balancedsail set up in ANY condition.  With the bow thruster, the confidence at sea translates to surprisingly easymaneuverability in port. Built according to Najad’s high construction standards and under Lloyd’s Register ofShipping certification, the Najad Aphrodite 42 is a Category A cruiser for unlimitedOcean-travels. The quality of Najad joinery stands out even amongst otherScandinavian yachts A well thought out interior lay-out provides a large sit-down navigation / work station, avery functional seagoing galley with two fridges and three-burner gimbled stove, roomyaft and fore-cabins and full-length berths in the salon provide comfortable 2maccommodation for up to 6 adults and an additional child. Royal Blue cushions weretailored in spring 2023 and the burgundy curtains are new from this year. The HUGE amount of storage and up to 400l of freshwater capacity make it possible to stay out forextended periods of time, while the double heads and hot water showers provide enough space for multiple crew. An Eberspracher diesel heater will keep everyone warm if in northern climates. This Najad Aphrodite 42 has a long fin keel (encapsulated), the rudder is well-protected by the skeg, and a deep forefoot means the boat doesn’t pound to windward. It remains very balanced and onecan leave the helm without the autopilot when sailing close-hauled or on a close reach. The autopilot and full array of B&G electronics matted to the Raymarine plotter allow for easy passages and navigation. Can be sold with full suite of crockery, tools, replacement parts, 7 life jackets (3 inflatable), etc, so that the next owner can hop on board and start their own adventure anywhere desired! Owner's comments: The boat went through a €75000 refit in 2015 which included replacing the rigging and all the electronics (and I mean all! - home batteries, inverter, diesel heater, instruments, auto-pilot, etc). Since then the wind speed indicator, music radio, some lines, dingy, cockpit tent and spray hood, hot water boiler, all interior cushions, the curtains, and many other items, have been renewed. Maintenance was done annually, including stepping the mast (as it was stored indoors) and changing engine filters, by professionals until this year. A binder of receipts supports the careful maintenance of the vessel by its previous German and Finnish owners. Anti-fouling was done in May 2023, and then the keel professionally epoxied and anti-foul applied in April 2024. The propellor anode was replaced at this time and sea-cocks and hull anodes visually inspected.
