yup sliced right through maintaining his heading and speed….
Could have backed it down, trim tabs to lift bow but this captain seemed to want to motor straight through. Anyone that knows haul over knows it’s 75% how the boats driven in certain conditions.
Seen some serious sleds get owned by haul Over. Here see nada that stands out ….

Yeah, whatever, but when sheets of water are rolling over the roof of the cabin and soaking anyone on the back deck of a 30’ boat, at those speeds in those conditions, I want no part of it.

yeah whatever. All a Hell of lot dryer in that clip then any CC that had buried the bow at haul over and many have….many well made boats. Comical how some Judge all by a single haul over clip. Haha

I can see why they made it a pilot house now….part boat, part submarine. If it was a CC and not a pilot house, the driver would have needed a mask and snorkel, nothing like having 50 gallons of water dumped on you. Guess they have to have that open transom design to allow all that water they take over the bow to escape.

Every hull form does different things well and different things poorly.

You run a narrow form with minimal flare trimmed down, you cut through, not crash over. You don't expend a bunch of energy throwing water sideways, so you carry speed through. But you also give up reserve buoyancy, so you torpedo through waves.

Does it matter? Depends on what you want to prioritize. Wave piercing sailboats far more extreme than this race around the world, so it's not necessarily an indication of how seaworthy a boat is.

Every design is a compromise. Personally I always find the big CCs that lots of people here love to be dumb. But depending on what you prioritize, they could be a great solution.

Pretty clear that a good pilot can run an axopar in very rough seas, though.

um cause he’s out in severe weather maintaining speed 20 knots etc.

God these replies get more and more comical….

Maybe he needs new fitting glasses. So now we are judging how a boat handles rough weather based on eye glass fitting???

hahahaha my friend this maybe the funniest post of the day here on THT.

Who’s next and wants to beat this one? Won’t be easy….

Is any ride fun in a 28ft boat in severe weather; 4-5 footers and 50mph winds?

The point isn’t to show the fun factor but boats capabilities.

next?

How many critics actually rode one?

None.

I am not a critic, I have a sailboat racing upbringing and know the plusses and minuses of these designs as they became popular. They do get more straight line speed by piercing the waves, no doubt, but they are completely wet, and thus had open transoms. I think that is why they have pilot house configurations only. However, its is a very limited use boat in its strictly a cruiser. I personally do not want to be inside while on tje water, I have fished several enclosed flybridge sportfish and I just prefer to be outside. Also, I like to strictly fish when on the boat, cruising around and sandbar is terminally boring to me, thus it would not work for me. If you enjoy cruising and like pilot houses, it seems like a very viable boat. Its just not for me due to the layout

The weather in the video is bad for sure but he never left coastal waters. Go a few miles out into open water with that wind and its going to be a whole other level of severe.

LOL, I just love the comments from all these self-appointed expert critics!! It only runs well going straight, the seas are not that high, he was not far enough from the coast. He stuffed the bow on one of the waves, it has a pilothouse and open transom because it is so wet, blah, blah, bs, bs BS! Anyone watching more than one Haulover video will see plenty of the 'IN' boats stuffing their bows, taking water over the T-top, or soaking the passengers forward of the helm. And for sure there are plenty of owners of some of these popular boats who would shit their pants if caught in conditions like the Axopar is, and my god, what a fool to be offshore in a SINGLE engine. Bottom line, if you don't like them so what, other people do and the video shows a 28' doing a pretty good job in conditions most Florida boaters would never go out in.

I think it was designed primarily as a commuter boat for the Baltic Sea archipelagos. It makes perfect sense in that environment.
