Five different models, one deep V hull - winner of EPOTY 2016
On the basis of an 8.6 m hull with a deep V, the Scandinavian brand Axopar has come up with five different models. The five different versions are: Axopar 28 Open, Axopar 28 OC (Open Cabin) largely open, Axopar T-Top with a hard top above the helm station, Axopar 28 Cabin with an enclosed wheelhouse and Axopar 28 AC (Aft Cabin) also with an enclosed wheelhouse.
Unique concept At the start of development of the Axopar 28, all preconceived ideas were called into question. <i>"Each component was analysed in detail. The outcome was a unique modern design, outstanding handling, maximum safety, processing in conformity with standards and, thanks to industrial component production, a revolutionary price. Something new, something perfect has come out of it,"</i> says the shipyard. The concept is indeed unique: a walk-around, a large area for socialising or a sunbathing pad at the bow.
Array of surprises In the cabin version, the bench seat can be converted into a double bed, while in the version with the aft cabin there are two fixed berths. A separate wet cell is accessible from the forecastle and rounds off the concept. The twin-stepped hull is said to ensure fantastic handling characteristics. Thanks to the broad walk-around and high railing, the boat's occupants can feel secure at all times – and even at top speeds exceeding 45 kn. The customer can choose between single and double Mercury outboard engines up to 300 hp.
