BOATING NEW ZEALAND MAGAZINE - New Zealand
Tested: Axopar 28 C – (Boating New Zealand Magazine June 2017)
“If you are expecting the Axopar 28 to look like a traditional 8.5m powerboat, you’re in for a surprise. And if you’re expecting it to perform like one, you’re in for a shock.”
What they loved about the Axopar 28 Cabin: “The cabin is glazed right around, making for great visibility for skipper and passengers”, “With its high, comfortable fabric-covered seats, it looks and feels more like the interior of a high-end SUV than a powerboat”, “The use of interior space is also clever and innovative”, “The Axopar cruises effortlessly at 30 knots, eating up the head seas with no sign of spray over the deck. The handling is agile and precise, especially in tight turns, and there is no discernible hump when transitioning from displacement to planing speeds”, “The high level of finish throughout is notable”, “The Axopar 28 is certainly different in a world full of cookie-cutter powerboats”.
