The Axopar brand stands for three key things, according to reviewer Alex Smith: easy maintenance, easy handling and exhilarating performance – all of which is evident in the Axopar 28 TT. Take a look for yourself in the First Look Video below, recorded at Cannes Yachting Festival.



Engine options range from 250–300hp offering performance of up to 48 knots pushing a triple-stepped hull with a 22° deadrise that sharpens to 60° at the bow. The helm and passenger seating is well protected and positioned low in the hull behind a strong, sleek looking console. But the real story is the cruising features integrated into what might otherwise be a straightforward performance boat: generous seating in the bow, a proper heads compartment in the front of the console and reversible cockpit seating including fixings for a table. The TT model also includes an aft cabin with entry via two lifting seats behind the helm station.
