In Dan Jones’ words…“The Axopar changes the way you think about boating as you are no longer restricted by the ever changing wind and weather conditions… the sharp, twin stepped hull design allows you to effortlessly cut through any chop and with speeds of up to 51 knots you won’t find a powerboat that’s more fun to drive than an Axopar.”

BoatAdvice – Australia
Tested: Axopar 28 T-Top (BoatAdvice August/2015)

“While it may look unique, with a design that is closer to a sleek yacht than a power boat, it is also very functional with an exceptional amount of space onboard.”, “In the helm you feel immensely safe and secure, which is very reassuring for owners with kids or partners who are not so at ease on the water.”, “The purposeful design, crafty additions and clever use of space deliver a sports boat package that is immensely usable.”

Pacific Yachting – Canada
Tested: Axopar 28 AC (Pacific Yachting 06/2016)

“The performance and fuel economy are both outstanding. Fit and finish are also first-rate. Its striking design is another feature that will draw in customers.”

“At a more sedate cruising speed of 27 knots (4,000 rpm), the fuel consumption was a remarkable 1.6 litres per mile. For its size, the Axopar 28 can boast some of the lowest fuel consumption numbers we’ve ever seen.”, “Despite the two-foot chop, there was absolutely no pounding and the movement of the boat was soft… we never took a drop of water over the bow. This is an outstanding characteristic. from the norm.”
