The Axopar line has always been highly versatile and modular, capable of adapting to various shipowner needs. And it goes further with theAxopar 45, which is certainly not your typical pleasure boat. Building on a particularly flexible multifunctional and modular concept, it takes the Axopar spirit already present on the 28 and 37 further, offering a new benchmark in terms of size, comfort, safety and sportiness.

At the recent Genoa Boat Show we had a chance to see the new Axopar 45 Sun Top, in its full aft cabin configuration (optional). A hull that is heading for the ultimate adventure, both in terms of performance and seaworthiness (50-knot top speed) and in terms of comfort and safety, thanks to a well-tuned hull and volumes and spaces not to be underestimated.


Axopar 45 Sun Top – Concept

The Axopar 45 was born as the latest addition to the Axopar range, constantly evolving with updates and modular systems designed to make it increasingly versatile and “tailorable,” meaning adaptable around the most specific needs. The range’s flagship adventure boat, the 45 brings a good dose of social areas and volume to what is the axopar “platform” par excellence, a 13.7-meter hull with surprising marine qualities. Then added to comfort, cabins and safety is the 900 total horsepower outboard engine, which, with fuel consumption of about 3.8 liters per mile (at 33 knots), presents a range that should not be underestimated, especially given 1200 liters of fuel tank capacity.

Deck Spaces

In terms of space and social areas, excluding different individual choices, this 45-footer offers a large aft sundeck immediately followed by a sizable cockpit lounge area, complete with protective sun top, foreign galley, and fold-down broadside. Just beyond, a set of three ergonomic armchairs serves the wheelhouse, while additional lounge spaces, complete with sundeck and access to the forward cabin, are located forward of the console. An optional aft cabin is available under the sundeck.

In short, with the 45 Axopar has revolutionized the adventure boating segment by not only expanding its range, but by offering a walkaround center console that knows how to enhance its design qualities as much as the performance the hull can offer. Qualities that, for the site, are extremely important. After boats such as the 28 and 37, with the 45 there was in fact a desire to maintain the brand’s sporting ability, recovered both in the lines and in the optional Brabus package, but creating a hull aimed at everyone, both in terms of comfort and safety. A boat, in short, designed to be able to turn the keys and go, lending itself to both dayboating and longer “adventures.”
