Axopar 37 AC.
There’s something going on with the Finland boat scene and now many of the innovative yet rugged designs are making their way over to the Pacific Northwest. Axopar is one such line, and with the recent conclusion of their West Coast tour with local dealer JK3 Nautical Enterprises, these easily identifiable boats are turning heads. The Axopar 37 AC (aft cabin) was one of the new designs touted on the tour, a boat that is somehow both a cabin cruiser and cigar boat in one.
Right off the bat, the Axopar 37 AC stands out with its elongated foredeck with extra-prominent sun bed that you can see for miles. A second sun bed lies aft in the cockpit directly above the cabin that houses berths for two guests, in the front cabin there is a queen-sized bed. The aft cabin appears to be mostly glass, which gives the 37 AC a very light and roomy feel. The cabin top is tractable if the skipper wants even more light.
On Saturday 7th July, Alex Luther and the Chasing Canguro team celebrated their incredible World Record Mediterranean marathon, which finished in Cervia, Italy. On the evening of Thursday 5th July, Alex reached his objective to break the previously unbeaten World Record set in 1970 by his grandfather, Harry Luther, waterskiing from Tangiers, Morocco, and tracking the Spanish, French, Monaco and Italian coastlines to Pula, Croatia.
After a gruelling 11 hours water-skiing through rough sea conditions, Alex Luther reached Monaco harbour to receive a very special welcome by H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco. This marked the end of Day 4 of the ‘Chasing Canguro’ World Record water-skiing attempt, which sees Alex attempting to replicate the historical feat that his grandfather, Harry Luther, undertook almost 50 years ago.
This morning marks the beginning of a monumental challenge, as the Chasing Canguro World Record Marathon Waterskiing attempt left Tangiers, Morocco. Alex Luther, grandson of legendary Harry "Canguro" Luther, sets out to break is grandfather's record of covering 5,101km in 10 day, 5 hours and 36 minutes.
