Burgeoning Finnish boatbuilder Saxdor Yachts continues to expand at a record pace.

Despite only launching in 2019, the company has made a series of bold moves in quick succession, including the launch of well-received models like the 320 GTO, which made BoatBlurb's list of Best Boats of 2021, the 270 GTO in early 2023 which marked their entrance into the prized 18-28 foot category, and the 400 GTO which marked a turning point for the company's rapid ascension.

Saxdor is also among the leaders of the European design trend that continues to grow in Western markets.

In just five years, they company has gone from 30 employees to over 500 with revenue increasing 15 fold since their 2019 launch. They also recently expanded their production space to over 10,000 square meters (107,000 sq ft), and have already sold all their available models for 2024.

Now with a brief window to refocus their manufacturing, Saxdor has announced a new flagship and a presence among the larger yacht brands in the recreational market. The company announced the all-new 460 GTC at the recent boot Düsseldorf tradeshow in Germany, which marks a significant increase in both size and utility. They also announced the all-new 320 GTWA at the event.

While details of the interior features on the 460 GTC haven't been released, if the company follows a similar template to their 400 GTO consumers are likely continue filling the order book. The existing 400 GTO features a fold-out terrace that runs nearly half the length of the boat, plus an open wheelhouse extends the full beam, maximizing internal space and offering direct access to the side terrace -- a clever feature that enhances the functionality of the balconies while also creating a "private island experience" while at rest. The 400 GTO also features a transom built of glass to give an unobstructed view off the stern deck.

Other standout features on the 400 GTO that may emerge in the 460 GTC include a spacious forward double cabin, a separate head with full amenities, an optional kids’ cabin, and a double cabin at amidships. The 400 GTO brings ample headroom with a ceiling height over 6 feet (1.83 m), which the 460 GTC will almost certainly replicate.

Saxdor utilizes J&J Design for development, who also design for fellow Finnish yacht makers Axopar. The boats are built in Poland at the Elite-Elk shipyard while the company headquarters remains in Helsinki. Saxdor's design philosophy utilizes a unique twin-stepped hull for seaworthiness while also maintaining controllability under open water conditions.
