Broker's Comments

MENIPPE is a highly specified Najad 380, an offshore-proven center-cockpit fast cruising yacht designed by Judel/Vrolijk and built by Sweden’s renowned Najad yard. Several sisterships have circumnavigated, including Jeanne Socrates’ well-known SV NEREIDA, which has circumnavigated several times, including non-stop, single-handed.

Sold by us when new, and also to the 2nd, 3rd, and now 4th owner, she sailed in New England waters until 2007 and then participated in the Bermuda Race in 2008. She then cruised down the eastern seaboard to the BVIs, returning to Rhode Island in 2010. Since then, she has been based in Rhode Island, and more recently, in Maine, and has been sailed only in the summer, stored under cover during the winters. The 3rd owner intended to circumnavigate, which accounts for all of the offshore equipment; however, his plans changed, and the boat was sold, remaining in New England waters.

Equipped with all the toys, including in-mast furling, electric winches, a bow thruster, watermaker, refrigerator, freezer, and a bimini with full enclosure. There is an unused Hydrovane self-steering gear in storage.

The interior is finished in beautiful African mahogany and has a V-berth forward, a saloon with twin chairs to starboard, an alongside galley, and an aft cabin with a double bed and seat.


Offered to co-brokers on a commission split of 50/50.

Owner's Comments

We have been proud owners of MENIPPE (named after the daughter of Orion in Greek mythology) since 2012. We have always sailed her locally, between Rhode Island and now Maine, during the summer months. We have loved the way she sails and the beautiful craftsmanship that Najad put into building the boat. While we are sad to see her go to new owners, we have relocated to North Carolina, where new adventures beckon!
