In fact, just a bit over a year ago, this company barely even existed and now they’re sitting on hundreds of orders of this very model. This is the sac store. 320 gto, my name is dan jones. This is dan’s boat life and i’m really excited to talk about this boat with you today. So come with me. We’Re gon na do a little bit of a walk through. We are gon na. Do a test drive as well and we’ve already got the drone up in the air, but uh yeah. This is this is possibly the most exciting release of 2021. So join me let’s. Do this Music, Music i’ve already done a bit of a walkthrough on the 200 and you might notice it’s a little bit smaller than this one, so a lot easier to get on, but i’ll do my best, okay, that wasn’t so bad um. This is a ginormous version of what we have already tested. The 200 is the introduction to the adventure boat world for saks door and it’s a little weapon and i’ll put a link in the description somewhere up there or somewhere on the screen for you to check that out. If you haven’t already and sex doll, really hit the market running with that boat and they sold a hell of a lot of boats and now everybody knows who they are: they’ve absolutely blown it out of the park with this gto. So why don’t? We do a little camera swap campbell, you grab it off dave and we’ll start talking and i’ll.
Take you through this beauty of a boat. Okay. Here we are up in the bow of the 320 gto, so it’s worth saying that this hull is actually the basis for different models. So this is the gto and it’s got the hard top just up there, but there’s also an open version which is probably not going to be very popular in our part of the world, but um there’s, a cabin version coming as well and i’ve. Seen a few renders and that thing looks sexy um, but what are we seeing up here? Um first things. First, i love this uh. This soft flexi tech flooring, it’s middle of winter here, as you can tell i’ve, got my long sleeve shirt on, and you know this is this is soft. My feet have been warm i’ve been comfortable all day, um fixed cleats up on the bow on this one and then the bow section just here is nice and smooth, as you would see, and have seen on the other models so stepping off on the sand. It’S doable, but you want to be a little bit more athletic on this one, because the distance is a little bit greater, so either have flexible knees or think about a um bow ladder for this boat in terms of getting into the anchor lockup. Well, it’s huge that’s, like a meter or so just down there’s heaps of space um, so there’s going to be plenty of plenty of storage there for fenders anchor line and anchor and you i think a lot of people are going to do what we’re doing today And use a stern anchor and nose on the beach, so your primary anchor is likely going to be that one back there, but moving our way back through the boat we’ve got these nice powder coated black handrails, so that’s good, something to hold on to the you.
Do feel secure. You can slide your bum along here if you’re transiting around the boat and then the sun lounge here i’m missing a cushion but um the sun lounge here, it’s good for two people, maybe three um, you know you’ve got you could sit up nice and straight um. It’S, so this is fine. This is good. A good place to hang out. We’Ve got two cup holders. Just here. We’Ve got an opening hatch that opens forward so that’s going to suck a bit of air down into the cabin below so that’s good that’s nice. To have somewhere to relax, you know when the end of the day, when it’s, not super sunny, you’d, probably enjoy reading a book there. Moving towards the mid section of the boat sexy, sexy, windscreen that’s, a three piece windscreen just there with side side supports just here, but we’ve got one piece: two pieces of glass that gives you some some access down into the cabin just there in terms of light And then two more windows here which are part of the main windscreen there um a wiper single wiper blades, a single big wiper blade for that one just there, and then i can see your midship’s cleat. So whilst it is a little bit further forward on this boat, i don’t see that being an issue because you’re going to come from the helm and it’s only a metre forward, so access is still going to be perfectly fine in terms of tying the boat up.
So click here click here what else we’re looking at moving our way a little bit, aft we’ve got these windows, which i already checked that out in the drive. I wasn’t sure what the functional purpose for these windows was going to be, but when you’re behind the wheel and you’re belting along at 50 knots the picture that you get with these, this added visibility, it’s so much better, like i’m i’m used to just having my Sight lines wrapped around me like that on a normal boat, but now i’ve got this extra visibility, so when you’re hooking it into turns and and the hull comes up, you’ve got all this extra ocean to look at so that’s kind of cool, and it does also Provide a good handhold so same as um same as the windscreen surround. That is good. You know good support and something to hold on to, but come back to the transom, because before talking about the cockpit area, it’s definitely worth pointing out one of the most unique features on this boat and – and i love i just love those scandals. These finished blokes, like they designed some good boats and they really are into making the best use of space available and that’s. Certainly the case on these saks doors, and particularly this 320, because check out this. I just press this button and these so 32 foot boat. Now becomes a 40 foot boat in terms of deck access at the back.
I just absolutely love this and i really do see a lot of people getting some good fun, enjoyable use out of this extra space. So this is perfectly fine to come out here and stand on with all your mates. We’Ve got, electric worm drive operating that ginormous hinges and another support just there. So super cool super cool i’ll just cover this back part of the boat. Before i make my way through the middle um, but it’s uh it’s worth noting that both swim platforms uh, you know both transoms out the back here extend to the end of the motors. So you can back the thing in a bit careful and and step off the transom. If you’ve got uh, you know picking up people in that fashion, so that’s possible do bear in mind. The engines are trimmed up a little bit right now, because we’re on the beach we’ve got a four step: telescopic swim ladder uh. I just noticed there so that’s good to see we’ve got rub rail all the way around the boat. So this is just good thick rubber, so that’s, sensible, um, the engine mounting is professional and you know big thick transom mounting just there, but it it’s worth pointing out. We’Ve got the 300 horsepowers i’ve just been for a drive, they are ridiculously fun and perhaps a little bit overpowered. You can do over 50 knots. So if you are the guy or girl who wants to just go absolutely flat out, yes, you can do that, but what i’m saying is it’s not completely necessary.
You would be so happy with the two two fives on this boat it’s, not funny, and – and i i knew it was going to be. You know a bit of a weapon of a thing, because this was designed to write to run fast and efficient, with a single 300 horsepower, so with twins it’s, just just out of this world. So anyway, that’s there that’s, good and they’re wonderful engines. The power to weight ratio is, is pretty awesome too moving our way through the middle of the boat. We got one two three rows of seats, so we’ve got the three individual drivers seats and then we’ve got these three seats here in the middle. Now this one this unit here it’s a storage box and the seats pivot forward and back so actually i’m. Just going to pivot them forward, so you can see so that turns into somewhat sun lounge mode. So you can do that and then have this table up and have a little lunch area here and this whole unit slides forward and back on track. So you can play around with the space if you’re working at the barbie and you need space for your beer belly, then no problems. You could just slide the seat back and use all the space you need and people can relax out here now. If you don’t want this seat set up, you don’t have to have it there’s an option for individual lounges, which will just slot in here and here nice big, wide comfortable seat and they will actually detach, and you can put them out on the wings.
So you can have this whole area open if you wish, but what i wanted to show you, whilst i’m here is with the table down. You’Ve, also got the option of doing this. How good is that, like? Yes, you could hang out with all your closest friends and like yes, i’m just you know, i love it. I love it so that’s good, the sun, lounge that’s, obviously got space for six people or more, but underneath it i’m not going to do it right now, but this whole thing hinges up, and this is all storage underneath here, but then you can also by pressing A button lift the whole floor and it will electro electrically raise and you’ve got access to all your service. So your batteries and your other systems under the floor there and then, if you you know, if you’ve got too much gear, if you, if you stored some stuff in here, then you filled this box and you still need extra space. You can actually slide this box back and there’s an underfloor storage locker just underneath directly underneath and underneath this it’s kind of like an esky, so that’s pretty cool. Why don’t you come back here and then i’ll show you what’s going on right here, so i’ll, just let you get that in shot. This is the barbecue area. So now that i’ve moved into the middle of the boat, we are under this solid fiberglass t top. So this is fantastic.
It is worth noting that this lining has been discontinued. Like all boat builders, they have made a like a long list of improvements. Any boat builder that’s, not making them you know continuously improving their boats is not a proper boat builder, so sac store they’re the same they’ve done a few little improvements here there and all around the boat. I won’t point them all out individually, because you’ll learn that in future videos, but this one here lifts up and we’ve got a hot uh. Two two hot plates electrically operated just here. That’S off the batteries, we’ve got a single sink just here: that’s going to be cold water and then we’ve got a cutting board and we’ve got six drink holders. So that’s. You know everything you need for setup for lunch and then we’ve got deep drawers. One and two just here, so you can put all your picnic ware in there and then we’ve got two fridges, so one on this side and another on this side, so they haven’t wasted. Oh look at that full of beer. We might have to have one later. They haven’t wasted any space, so absolutely every centimeter of this unit is sensible, usable space. I love that so coming forward. This whole area is in shade, including the first row of seats. So everybody, you know the first six or seven people on the boat are always going to be protected and the people out the back well they’re the young young, fun ones anyway.
So they’re going to be out in the sun so come forward and see. If you can get a look at this helm because it’s a sexy one and worth a look, we’ll go into more detail about the operation of the boat in our test. Drive video so subscribe, make sure you click the bell notification and have a look at that. That’Ll be coming out separately, but this helm, it’s, modern, well designed and functional i’ve just done a good drive on it and it is it. Works works very, very well. So first thing worth noting: we’ve got this darker finish up the top here. That’S that’s got a practical function; it stops any glare coming up in your face, so you can see at all times. We’Ve got a flat screen display here. This is the dual simrad display and you can do all sorts of things with that. So you know we’ll talk about that in the test drive video, but in these little lockers just here, we’ve got storage for phones. I can see another what looks like another little usb, no sorry they’re card slots for the simrad. So this is just a storage area, and this is charging we’ve got some contactless phone charging just there and then we’ve got drink holder, drink holder. This is the joystick operation, um, not sure, if it’s completely necessary, if you’re new to boating you’ll absolutely love it. But this thing is very, very maneuverable as it is with the bar thruster.
So you know it is what it is. The diagnostics display is just here all your boat systems. Buttons are just here. So everything for from navigation, docking, bilge horn, wiper power display that’s. All there electronic throttle it’s worth noting that the the throttle assembly um, is actually it protrudes a little bit out of the dash so it’s quite ergonomic and natural to hand so that’s good, but we’ve got our trim. Tabs bar thruster, vhf aerial and foot rests. Man with little legs loves a footrest, so that’s good, that’s comfortable. This seat will go forward and back and we’ve got the flip up, bolsters for everybody in this front row. So that’s that’s what you would expect and what you will um appreciate on a style of boat like this. Finally, before we go downstairs, there is an opening, just here, um that’s for a bunch of bags you’re. Never wanting for storage on this boat come with me and we’ll have a look down stairs, because this is also pretty cool for a 32 foot boat. We are really like punching above its weight here, so check out this for a cabin actually i’m going to jump on and give you an idea for space alrighty. Oh yeah, that’s good, so i got i’ve actually got two opening hatches. I didn’t notice that, because it was a under the cushion, so i got a forward facing and an half facing hatch there and it’s got blinds that pull across so you’ve got insect screen.
You can block out the sun. You’Ve got ventilations that’s, fantastic i’ve got a couple of fixed windows here and then i’ve got some venetian blinds that pull down here. So this is this – is a great spot for i’d, spend a couple of nights in this cabin. But what is great to see which you may not be able to see from there so i’ll, try and get out of the way is a proper toilet so come down here, and maybe you can pan around and see me. But once again, these finish blokes they’ve got limited amount of space and they’ve made good use of it. So normally you’d have to produ protrude into the cabin with doors. So essentially they’ve done a two piece door. So when it’s open, this is gives you an open plan feeling i’ve got plenty of space. You know you could just have this like this. If you want to come down and brush your teeth or something and it works, but when you do actually need to use the loo just like so and then that’s too good fantastic. I just love that so that just comes that just locks on a magnet there. But what am i looking at i’ve got a window here: um that doesn’t look out straight out onto the sea because you’ve got the the side of the gunnels, but you do have privacy blinds just here. I’Ve got a nice glass circular or round whatever you want to call that little sink bowl, thingy, jiggy and i’ve got some storage in here.
The toilet it’s actually got its own little seat. So i would use this if i was just coming in to brush my teeth or do something in here and then, when you actually do need to use the loo that lifts up. So that is sensible and then we’ve got a seat here for putting your shoes on so that’s, great and in terms of yep. Anyone can use that that’s good and then our boat systems, i can see all of our fuses shore power and fuse operation, is here. I’Ve got another little stereo volume control, so i don’t go have to go upstairs if the music is too loud in the evening and this area here, you could actually put phones and stuff on it, because it’s got a little fiddle here to stop things sliding off. So, as a downstairs area for a 32 foot boat, this is a boat. I would absolutely go away and spend a couple of nights on board, so what’s my wrap up on the 320 gto. I love it like. I absolutely love it um. This thing is exciting. This thing is head turning, and this thing is functional and sensible. So you know, if you want to, if you want to entertain with big groups, you can, if you want to just take a date out, you can, if you want to overnight with a partner, you can do that too, and this is just what boating should be About um – and i think saks still have really hit the nail on the head with this size, with the functionality with the performance and absolutely with the looks.
This is a boat that you’d put up on your screensaver. This is something you you have wet dreams about. It is awesome so anyway, if you want to know more about this boat, you need to talk to the guys from adventure.
