Brief Summary

Recently, we tested the Axopar 28 Cabin in 5’ to 7’ (1.52 to 2.13 m) seas in one of the roughest conditions we have ever tested a boat in, much less a one this size with an open bow. The Axopar line of open day and cabin boats are built in Finland, a country known for building rugged sailboats and powerboats. Axopar has combined the pilothouse and open commuter/patrol boat concept popular in Northern Europe with the hull shape and styling that we have seen coming out of Southern Europe. These blunt-bow, slab-sided, open-transom, mostly day boats are being built all over Europe now. They range from the super-luxury Pardo brand (which we have tested), to the Axopar brand with models which are far more economical to buy. The Axopar brand is now available in the U.S.
