After several months/years of looking, our choice stop on this model which seems to be perfect for us. Never the less, after one full season of sailing, we definitely would like to have a bigger one which could let us the the capability to have more options.

Njord, where that name come from ?

After several months of discussions and argumentations, we finally agreed with that name, our searches took so many directions, we even considered Carolina when we were a little bit drunk with Søren’s friend and his girl friend Carolina. As tradition a boat should technically should have a woman name, but in our case we have a man name, so Søren, Marc and Njord.

In the nordic methodology, Njord was something like a God of the sea and the wind. He was also bringing fortune and good fishing. He is married with Skadi, his children was conceive with his own sister.
