Axopar 24 Axopar 28 Axopar 37

...the Mk2 version of Axopar’s 28 has an entirely new hull! So popular has it been, with around 1,000 built since it launched in 2014, that the moulds were simply wearing out, so it made perfect sense to revamp the hull in line with the mould replacement.

Not only was the 37 seaworthy, its tracking and handling were exceptional. Like Boating for Dummies exceptional. Like where-has-this-been-all-my-life exceptional.

To say the original was successful is an understatement… delighted every journo who had a go behind the wheel. How on earth do you improve that? By talking to to the people who have one, of course.

...when we got the test boats out in less than ideal weather, we were hooked. Simply stated, we’ve never been on such superb handling boats. They turn on a dime with an excellent combination of grip and stern slide that brings them around with zero prop ventilation. Offshore, they can handle the worst conditions that kept us going even when so many other boats were running for cover. In short, there’s a new standard of handling and comfort…. Axopar.
