Maflingo is the latest AOD to be built, but 2022 sees two new AODs under construction.

At the 2010 River Race Dinner, with all seven owners present, the AOD constitution was agreed and the Axe One Design Class Association established.

At the same time a new AOD specification was agreed, this incorporated the rules of 1959 into a much more comprehensive format to safe guard the AOD. (Current Spec Version 5. June 2021)  Also, Peter Williams lofted a set of moulds from No.1 and is in the process of drawing a set of plans to compliment the specification. The latest specification is issue 4, agreed by the owners at the AOD Jubilee Ragatta in June 2013.
