The outboard-powered vessel platform S.A.F.E. was designed by J&J in
January 2017 and the legal protection process started in February 2017.
The US patents were granted in 2018 (US patents no. 10,370,067 and
10,150,537B2) and Eu patent (incl. Turkey) were awarded in August 2020
(EP5583023, in Germany DE60 20177021 705.0). Considered by the industry
as one of the major innovations improving the safety and convenience of
boats with outboard engines, S.A.F.E. was already applied on new J&J boat
designs like the Greenline NEO or Fairline F33 and several others. We
are looking forward to developing the S.A.F.E. as an unavoidable
solution for outboard-driven boats.



Saxdor 200 was presented by Hugo Andreas in the Motorboat & Yachting Magazine and Saxdor was described as the most exciting new brand of the last years. Citing the verdict : ‘It’s fast, stylish, fun to drive and much more practical than any jet-ski. It’s also unbelievably good value for money while managing to look, feel and behave like a much more expensive craft. I can’t think of another boat that gets anywhere close to offering that much fun for that kind of money.’

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.
