Default Let this help the question… How are Axopar boats in some Seas??

This is a great clip of the 28 getting it done.
There has always been that question around these boats given there axe bow design, price point, weight, none conventional set up and what ever else. Enjoy….

Very cool. You do lose some space with the narrow beam but it sure makes for a seaworthy hull.

Wipers seem to be working well.

Whatever was the conclusion around the report that an Axopar sunk? In the Bahamas I think?

There is definitely some direct experience. Also one can read the facebook group...

The post claims Force 8, but the sea certainly didn't look like it.

Always worse then what the video shows….
certainly wasn’t peaceful out there that’s a fact.

Yeah cause I love coming on here and just spilling lies. Plenty of first hand accounts of actual owners. The Nay sayers always from those spending little to no time on one.

That was the most suspicious sinking ever.
A tattered beat up none maintained charter boat went down but they called buddies in a sport fish to come get them but never the coast guard. Were a dozen other oddities around that boat/incident. Thousands of Axopar boats on the water.

Yes, that's exactly what I meant. I've heard a lot on here from delighted owners, a very sketchy sinking, and a bunch of people talking smack based on no direct experience.

Default Anyone see any other boats in the video?

There are none... While I would not venture out in conditions like this I did find myself out of necessity in 5-8 seas with higher swells during the passage of a few Canes last year in the Gulf. Very confused and angry seas and took some hard hits on over the side that scared the crap out of me as it came from nowhere but my Axopar took it all in stride. Never a hint of stuffing the bow but then again i was not in a race to jump wave to wave. Some have question the seaworthiness of these boats and this video should put those to rest. For me, it's without a doubt left me with a "shit eating grin" more than any other boat I've ever owned. Handles like a Range Rover Sport turns on a dime and comfortable as can be inside an air conditioned pilot house. I could sell my boat for at least what I paid two years ago tomorrow and how many boats can make that claim...

Just about everyone of them can make that claim in this market…..

Sorry, but in 5’ seas, I don’t want to be taking some hard hits while I barely make head way so I don’t have to worry about stuffing the bow. I want a boat that can keep up a comfortable 20-25 mph without taking any hard hits or worries of stuffing the bow in 5’ seas.

Every Axopar video I’ve watched looks like they ride hard and slam. Not impressed. I do like the 37 XC layout though.
