It's no easy task making an already very good boat that much better. So when it comes to product evaluation and product improvement, no matter how many management meetings and 'think-tank' groups we wish to assemble, Axopars most valuable single resource will always be the feedback and experience given to us by our customers out there using and enjoying our boats, in different regions across the world.
Only Axopar customers and their partners, their families and friends have a true understanding of what works best with our boats and what aspects, perhaps, could do with being improved. To the casual observer any 2018 model year improvements will appear as subtle ones and, as the following list will confirm, much unseen work has been carried out to make every hull designation that much more comfortable, stiffer, stronger, safer and more responsive than ever before.
Without tampering with the boat's essential DNA and core values, customers already familiar with the outgoing model will immediately notice that every detail they can see, touch and feel about the all new Axopar 28 has been improved.
Axopar have increased the stakes in terms of quality and engineering, such that every shape and curvature has been honed to perfection with an extensive re-think of our modular construction. Everything from the hull stringers, transom, engine mounting etc has been revised and will be stronger and stiffer, with an enhanced level of fit & finish than ever before.
An extensive weight analysis programme ensured the target weight for the new boat has remained the same as the previous model (example: 28 T-Top weight 1790kg ex engines).
For added stability and improved balance, the hull has been scaled by 1.5%, equating to slightly longer length overall (increased by 13cm) and wider beam (increased by 5cm) and for greater passenger comfort inside the cockpit, the hull sides have been raised by 8cm and the deck level by 4cm respectively.
The Axopar 28 Cabin is fully enclosable for all weather conditions yet open for warm and sunny summer days. Perfect for Australian waters.
It features a spacious, bright and comfortable cabin with wide sliding doors and a large sliding canvas roof. The sofa inside the cabin converts into a double bed.
This highly adaptable model has ample space for fishing and other activities on the aft deck and a large social area on the foredeck that can be quickly and easily converted into a sun bed or a seating and dining area. It also incorporates a stowage space with optional toilet and sink in front of the helm.
Whether for cruising, fishing or just unwinding with friends and family you'll love the Axopar 28 Cabin.
