Following the success of the 200 and 320 models, Saxdor Yachts presents the 270. With every square inch of onboard space designed for convenience, this new, versatile, and smart boating solution is packed with features usually reserved for craft in a higher price bracket.
Launching at the 2022 Southampton International Boat Show, Saxdor brings yet another innovative project to the under 30’ sports boat category: Saxdor 270. The only model in its range to feature both a wet bar and face-to-face seating for up to six people, Saxdor 270 GTO proves there are new territories of functionality to be explored with the brand’s new model unveil.
The symmetrical cockpit supports the balance of the boat; the depth of the portside sidewalk allows one to move around confidently; a convertible dinette also adds sunbathing space in aft. The glass transom is an excellent safety feature.
The sleek proportions of Saxdor 270 disguise a sleeping cabin, equipped with a two-person regular-size sleeping berth, and a toilet with a sink, elevating the 270 GTO from a fast day boat to a stylish weekender. Inside, plenty of natural light–coming through the skylight and hatches–enlarges the entire space.
Designed using the Saxdor signature —the light and soft-riding twin-stepped hull—the Saxdor 270 GTO delivers speed performance and fuel efficiency well-known from the brand’s earlier models. A deep V entry hull reduces the impact, building on the overall boat stability. From £86,600 inc VAT and Mercury V6 225.
Light and strong construction, built using the vacuum infusion technique, results in a watercraft that is easy to tow on a road trailer, opening a new world of boating for those who want to venture outside of their usual cruising area. Fitted for one outboard 225 to 350 hp engine, the Saxdor 270’s design offers fuel efficiency.
The founder and chief designer of Saxdor Yachts, Sakari Mattila, known also as the founder of Axopar, XO, Aquador, and Paragon, says: “The 200 and 320 have proved extremely popular with customers. With great excitement, we introduce the 270 GTO to the market. With the same focus on performance, design, and value for money, this boat is one of the most versatile in its category. 270 and coming 400 model range are the next steps of the Saxdor fleet.”
Saxdor Group CEO Erna Rusi says: “The new SX270 will nicely expand our fleet, offering more yet again “more bang for the buck” – it’s a fantastic boat in its range! With the upcoming SX 400 GTC, we’ll be able to offer a comprehensive boating experience to every type of customer need.”
