Presenting all-new Mercury Verado 300 V8 engines on the Axopar 37 Sun-Top
Axopar are at the Mercury Marine World Premiere event in Baveno, Italy, where we proudly present the all-new Mercury Verado 300 engines on our Axopar 37 Sun-Top, with a new BRABUS Line exterior package for the Axopar 28 and 37 range, which will officially be introduced in Cannes in September 2018.
The new 250 and 300hp V-8 Verado outboards raise the bar for the marine industry – again. Continuing Verado’s legacy as the most refined outboard on the water, the new V-8 platform provides exhilarating performance across the rpm range. Sea trials have shown the 300hp Verado is up to 20 percent quicker and 2 mph faster than the closest competitor, while still providing up to 8 percent better fuel economy.
The V-8 Verado engines are compatible with Mercury Joystick Piloting for Outboards for maximum maneuverability and control, and feature Mercury-engineered digital controls and electro-hydraulic power steering for smooth operation. Equipped with Adaptive Speed Control, they deliver increased throttle response and a “sportier” feel.
Axopar customers can now differentiate and characterise the look and feel of their new Axopar by ordering a BRABUS Line Trim Package – adding value with discreet exterior trim & styling enhancements.
Comprising a series of carefully chosen visual improvements, BRABUS Line Trim Package is available across all Axopar 28 and 37 foot models. Perfect for customers looking to create a little extra ‘stand-out’ without breaking the bank!
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.
