SAXDOR : a new range of boats is born.

We are proud to announce the launch of Saxdor 200, the first model of Saxdor Yachts.

Saxdor is a new range of outboard powered boats born in cooperation of Sakari Mattila, previously founder of Axopar, Paragon, XO-boats and Aquador, with J&J Design.

Saxdor 200 is a 20ft outboard boat that combines the fun, performance, convenience and ease of use of a jet ski with the safety and comfort of a compact boat. Her wide cockpit features a jockey seat for three passengers or a XL bench up to four people. A berth for two people is provided on the forepeak, with the possibility of full enclosure for a night on board.

Thanks to her twin stepped hull, she’s capable to ride at over 50 knots with a single V6 engine. Outstanding handling and seakeeping abilities makes her as the perfect recreational craft for the novice or the most expert users. Very fast, great fun to drive, practical, versatile and unbeatable value for money made the Saxdor 200 a bestseller – from her launch date.

J&J Design is responsible for naval architecture, design and engineering of the Saxdor 200.

J&J Design office wins the 2020 Rossinavi Design Challenge

At the Seatec show in Marina Carrara, Italy, the winner of the Rossinavi 2020 Design Challenge was announced.
The jury, 2 journalists from the megayacht industry, 2 megayacht brokers, and Federico Rossi, the CEO of Rossinavi, reviewed 60 projects competing in the challenge.
The 50 m Rossinavi Green Explorer project of J&J Design was seen by the jury, with the words of David Seal “a good notch above other entries”, and was unanimously voted the winner of the design competition. At the jury’s opinion, the project stood out in 3 points: the project was complete without weak areas, the proposed hybrid system with microturbine generators is unique and efficient, and the owner area is ideally positioned without hurting the aesthetics. On exterior and interior design J&J cooperated with Studio YD.
