Argo Yachting, sister brand to Princess Motor Yacht Sales, has been awarded exclusive distribution rights to market the Finnish designed Saxdor Yachts in the Baltic coast of Germany and the Spanish territories of the Balearics, Malaga, Puerto Banus and Sotogrande.
Launched in March this year, Saxdor is a new brand of power yachts that have been designed by Sakari Mattila. Mattila is the original designer and founder of award-winning boat brands Axopar, Paragon, Aquador and XO and it was his ambition to build a new ‘generation of premium, attractively priced boats with modern styling and fitted with the latest technology.’
“The Saxdor brand fits perfectly with Argo’s values and fresh approach to boating,” says Max Whale, CEO at Argo Yachting. “We are a relatively new brand ourselves, but like Saxdor’s creators, we also have a wealth of experience behind us and our ambitions are very much aligned. We are thrilled to be a part of Saxdor’s exciting journey and expansion into the recreational boating market and have every confidence of its success.”
The first two models to be announced by Saxdor, the Saxdor 200 SPORT and the Saxdor 320 GTO will be marketed by Argo Yachting in the popular boating areas of the Balearics and Southern Spain. The new partnership also opens up the Baltic coastline to German boaters, allowing them access that only a smaller, more versatile craft like the Saxdor 200 Sport, can offer.
The Saxdor 200 Sport is a 20-foot outboard powered personal watercraft, said to combine the fun and power of a jet ski with the safety and comfort of a compact boat. Powered by a 100hp Mercury engine the scooter’s starting price (€22,320) makes it more accessible to grass-roots boaters. Its combination of compact dimensions, lightweight construction, cutting-edge design and high-quality finish, also makes it an appealing option as a superyacht tender.
The Saxdor 320 GTO is the first of three models in Saxdor’s 32ft series to have been announced. The Saxdor 320 series is said to deliver fast, powerful outboard performance and a refined, economical hull shape. Maximum power with a twin 300hp Mercury option will achieve a top speed of well over 50 knots with an optimum cruising range of between 20 and 40 knots. The starting price based on a single 300hp Mercury V8 outboard is €90,900.
Argo Yachting currently specialise in the sales of new and used motor yachts within the 30ft to 30m range.
