Makoma is a rare beauty with one careful owner from new who has kept her professionally maintained in Greece.The ultimate blue water cruiser, the Najad 460 is spacious and luxurious with sofa and two armchairs in the saloon and the master cabin in the rear. She is British registered and VAT paid. She has blue stripes on her hull (rather than the traditional dark red), extra water and fuel tanks, a water maker, extra large main windlass and a kevlar reinforced bow section. As her owner is reluctantly retiring from sailing, she comes with a Highfield tender and Mercury 2.5 outboard (both less than 2 years old). Other optional extras include a bow ladder, extra fridge, microwave and washing machine. Her two heads both have electric toilets, showers and holding tanks. She has an electric winch with fixed kedge anchor and an inner stay with stay sail. Her sails have been removed to the loft every time the owner has left to fly home and she has been equipped with bespoke window and teak covers to protect her from UV damage.
