Tested: Axopar 24 T-Top - (Powerboat & RIB Magazine Issue 136 October 2016)

“Radical looks & innovative spacious design”, “It has equal appeal for the white-knuckle powerboater as it does for the family man.”, “When you consider what you are getting for the money, the Axopar 24 T-Top is a no-brainer…”

What they loved about the Axopar 24 T-Top: Great seakeeping and handling, Rapid steering, Solid build quality, Practicality/safety, Good weather/sun protection. "Its radical looks, vertical stem and innovative, spacious design are a trademark of this Finnish yard, as is a tempting, fully specified price tag of just over £60,000."

Verdict: The GRP-built Axopar 24 T-Top brings the joys of fast Scandinavian boating to those that do not want to remortgage their house, and/or want a boat light enough to trail. It also provides a comfier option to a RIB with the ability to overnight, which for those that do not live near to their boat can make a world of a difference. When you consider what you are getting for the money, the Axopar 24 T-Top is a no-brainer, which has equal appeal for the white-knuckle powerboater as it does for the family man. If you want something more conventional than the T-Top, there is also an open-boat version.
