Najad buys Swedish service and maintenance yard

Swedish sailboat producer Najad Yachts has acquired Orust Yacht Service AG, a service and maintenance yard based on the island of Orust, including its production and harbour facilities.

Najad has been constructing yachts since 1971, with models including N395, the N570CC and N450CC Next Generation, due for launch in 2023. Following the acquisition, Najad will be moving production back to the service and maintenance yard in Henån, on the island of Orust.

Fredrik Malmqvist, CEO of Najad Yachts, sees the acquisition as an opportunity to deliver more to their customers to make yacht ownership an easy and enjoyable process.

He said:

Orust Yacht Service is one of northern Europe’s largest and most respected service, repair, and maintenance yards for sailing yachts. The company will continue to be managed as a separate entity offering its quality service to a wide range of customers, with Andreas Samuelsson as CEO.

Samuelsson commented:

Former CEO Claes Samuelsson, who successfully built Orust Yacht Service to the company it is today, will continue to support Najad and Orust Yacht Service during the transition period to assist with the future growth of both companies.
