Seen at the recent SCIBS, the new Saxdor sport boats attracted a lot of attention on the Adventure Boats Company stand.
Sandor 320 GTO is the second model in a new range from the Finnish company Saxdor Yachts. There will be three separate models on the 32ft platform. All three versions share exquisite design, fast, powerful outboard performance and a refined, economical hull shape.
Maximum power will be twin 300hp Mercurys, while the single V8 engine with 300hp is estimated to have a 38-knot top speed with cruising speed close to 30 knots. With twin 300hp outboards, it will achieve a top speed of well over 50 knots with an optimum cruising band between 20 and 40 knots. Sakari Mattila, founder of Saxdor Yachts says: “I have always admired Italian design, American functionality, German quality, and French pricing. With the 320, the aim is to incorporate these attributes and combine them with the Scandinavian way of boating.”
The 320 is modern, sexy and sporty but has a high level of comfort and convenience at its heart, with practical deck spaces and a spacious double cabin with a separate toilet.
The versatility of the cockpit is a stand out feature. The opening side terraces create an unbeatable connection to the water. The sunpad with a sliding backrest ensures this area is equally comfortable whether carrying guests at high speed or relaxing when the boat is at rest. The beautifully integrated T-top provides shelter over the wet bar and helm area, protected by a sleek wraparound windscreen. Sunshades fore and aft protect from the sun if required.
At the bow, a sunpad and bench provide more relaxation space for guests, and an integrated anchor and windlass ensure the lines aren’t disturbed by the boat’s hardware.
Sandor’s headquarter is located in Helsinki, Finland, with their production shipyard located in Elk, Poland.
