From Finland, Axopar boats look different, perform well, and provide versatility and easy maintenance. The new 28 series exemplifies this ethos. Take a look. Modular pods allow Axopar to offer one hull in three configurations: 28 ­Cabin, 28 T-top and 28 Open. According to Axopar, the cabin version shown opens up a world of possibilities for boaters seeking longer journeys and more time spent aboard. Up to five people can comfortably sit inside this airy space. And while a couple can overnight, the modular aft-cabin option extends the cruising potential of this new boat.

In its open configuration, a protected helm station is at the center, while myriad activities can take place fore and aft. Axopar boats defiantly challenge the logic that boats must compromise.

Mercury outboards to 400 hp combine with the twin-step deep-deadrise hull and other features to deliver speeds in excess of 52 mph and great efficiency. Pricing starts at just under $100,000 with a single 150 hp engine.
