Ten years after Finnish boatbuilder Axopar Boats launched its first model, the Axopar 28, the builder recently debuted its new Axopar 29 Range.

The series has two models: the Axopar 29 Cross Cabin (XC) and the Axopar 29 Sun-Top (ST). While the designs have familiar Axopar DNA, there have been some changes, according to the builder.

In a press release, Axopar stated that these changes included “redefined hydrodynamics and improved efficiency, the hull itself is more defined, more fluid, and with a less angular stance about it.” The hull form is a twin-stepped, deep-V design with a knifelike entry and 22.5 degrees of transom deadrise.

The builder says that the “bow section is higher with a more pronounced flair that will impart a sense of protection from the elements and maintain its renowned ride quality, even in rougher conditions. The walkaround side decks are also wider, making maneuvering around the boat easier.”

These enhancements are based on the builder’s decade of experience building and running the Axopar 28 as well as customer input.

The 29 XC has an offset helm station, cleaner sightlines, wider and taller sliding doors, more and level floor space as well as increased legroom for the helmsman and passengers alike, according to Axopar.

The 29 ST is notable for its improved social spaces. The cockpit has a U-shaped settee and a foldout hi-low table, which also forms a sun pad. The settee’s backrests adjust four ways to accommodate multiple seating and relaxing scenarios. There is a foredeck lounge to accommodate even more friends and family for that sunset cruise.

Perhaps, the most significant design change is found at the bow where it has what it calls a multicabin. The area can serve as under-deck stowage and have a freshwater toilet and sink, or it can be set up as a full-length cabin for overnighting.

“The multicabin forward gives tons of extra usability for the boat and now you can have two couples, or two adults and two kids staying overnight, when selecting the main sleeping aft cabin to the boat.,” the builder stated in a press release.

Power options are a single 300 hp to 400 hp outboard or twin 200 hp outboards. The builder says that when running the Axopar 29 models between a 22-knot to 32-knot cruise-speed range, fuel efficiency is virtually unchanged. Axopar adds that the 29 models are capable of a 37-knot fast cruise speed thanks to the hull-design improvements. The builder says fuel economy has increased by up to 30 percent as well and range is 200-plus nautical miles.

Top-end speed is reportedly around 48 knots.
