At the recent boot Düsseldorf trade fair, Finnish boatbuilder Saxdor Yachts held a press conference where it made the surprise announcement of two new models – a new flagship, the Saxdor 460 GTC, and the Saxdor 320 GTWA. The event was held at the brand’s stand, where the new Saxdor 400 GTC was displayed for its world premiere.
Attracting interest from across the nautical community, the Saxdor 400 GTC is a 12-metre vessel designed to suit seafaring families across Europe’s diverse climates.
The surprise announcement of the two new models builds on the shipyard’s growth, which is expected to carry it to €100 million in revenue this year. Even as the range reaches up to 14 metres, Saxdor says it intends to maintain a strong presence in the smaller end of the market.
With the possibility of closing the main deck completely with insulated glass on one hand and opening it completely on the other, the Saxdor 400 GTC is suited to various scenarios. The same design characteristics help provide excellent visibility, good natural illumination and a strong outdoor connection.
As the brand prepares to extend and enrich its range with the Saxdor 460 GTC and Saxdor 320 GTWA, respectively, Saxdor used its press conference to reveal it is recommitting to its foundational pillars of value, performance and design.
The Saxdor 270’s victory in the Sportsboats Under 30ft category of the 2024 Motor Boat & Yachting awards, revealed during boot Düsseldorf, attests to the brand’s ongoing evolution.
Saxdor Yachts has grown quickly since 2020, expanding its team from 30 people to more than 500 in just three years. In the same period, revenue increased 15 times.
Today, the brand’s production facilities cover over 10,000 square metres and are poised to double as it rises to meet the increasing production demand of its growing line of motor yachts.
Having sold out all its models available for 2024, the yard is consolidating the Finnish market by selling directly to consumers. At the same time, Saxdor says its dealer network remains robust abroad.
