Tested: Axopar 37 Cabin & 37 Sun-Top - (Trade-A-Boat Magazine Issue 485, December 2016)
“I always go out on a limb when I suggest that a boat is the best I have ever reviewed; after all, such a claim doesn’t leave a lot of room to move. After reviewing the Axopar 37 I may just have to reconsider my attitude. This could be the most fun you can have on a day boat.”
What they loved about the Axopar 37: Handling and ride are in a class of their own, Individual looks will please some, Quality finishes and futuristic design. "Forget everything you know about driving a 37-footer – this boat rewrites all the manuals. It leapt forward from rest like a boating journalist at an open bar and pushed rapidly to WOT, just shy of 50kt in the quiet waters of upper Middle Harbour.", "Handling characteristics were sublime; the boat dutifully followed wherever it was pointed and confidently gripped the water as the hull leant in and bit hard without pitching or slipping.", "The Axopar 37 was safe and predictable across all quarters, rapidly inspiring confidence in its ability to quickly and safely cover the hops between inner-city ports."

“Wayfarer of a new era”, “One rarely encounters a boat more than 11 meters long that achieves the same kind of driving fun as the big Axopar delivers. The driving response has similarities with large rib-boats, which is a result of the low height, the length and the deep V-bottom”Read more
