Saajuu 470 mökkivene  a versatile everyday boat

The Saajuu 470 skiff has its roots in the Finnish province of southern Savo, where there are more waterways than roads. The glued lapstrake construction is light and rugged. With the optional floatation installed the boat is very safe and can be CE marked according to the Recreational Craft Directive in category D (sheltered waters).
The boat is easy to row as it steers easily and tracks well. The boat can be rowed with two people both rowing or in shift-boat style, with one rowing and the other one paddling/steering. Two rowers and one paddler is another option. 

The transom can accommodate a 3 kW (4hp) outboard engine. Loaded with 200 kg A 3 kW outboard will propel the boat, loaded with 200 kg, to a maximum speed of approximately 11 km/h (6 knots).
Fitted with an electric motor the boat glides along silently leaving wildlife undisturbed.
