For anyone looking for something more than an open boat, Axopar has the solution. It is called the Axopar 25, available in Cross Top and Cross Bow versions. This 8-metre boat brings together those who want a hybrid of compact size, cabin and performance. Configurable to suit your needs, safe and with a versatile deck, it also has an attractive price that starts at €39,900.

Structured on the winning DNA of the smaller Axopar 22, the newcomer to the Axopar family promises solutions for every need and taste, thanks also to the various possible configurations and the waterline that combines remarkable top speeds and ease of use.

Axopar 25 – Deck/Exterior

With its unmistakable slim, longline silhouette (2.23m beam), the Axopar 25 could be misleading, suggesting a focus primarily on performance. Attention to comfort, however, is not lacking. In fact, although the profile is sporty, a wide, full-width sunpad occupies the forward part of the raised deck, accompanied by a backrest that blends nicely with the deckhouse behind.

Even the cockpit is visibly aimed at comfort and relaxation. The possibility of choosing different configurations allows it to be adapted to every need. There are in fact three layouts for the entire seating system. In addition to the standard version (double aft settee and swivelling helm seats), there is a variant with a large U-shaped settee (profiled on the hull, it can also accommodate six people), or a multi-compartment layout, with a swivelling backrest that can accommodate six people (with fridge, lockers and sink underneath).

In addition to an extremely versatile modular cockpit, Axopar offers two further options to choose from: the Cross Bow version, with an uncovered cockpit and dashboard, or the Cross Top version – with a sporty hard-top that allows for both open configurations at the sides and a waxed to close, thus being able to cope with all weathers.

Axopar 25 – Helm Station and Interior

Lastly, the helm station, an extremely clean console block which, in addition to the wheelhouse and screen mounts, offers a Simrad MFD, a joystick for the bow thruster, and trim controls for the outboard motor (250 hp). Everything is offset to the left to allow convenient access to the forward cabin, where we find a double berth, a toilet and a washbasin.

In short, a compact all-weather boat, also suitable for a weekend away, with a double-stepped hull that guarantees excellent performance. All this in an 8-metre boat that is extremely pleasing to the eye and particularly safe thanks to the water lines and the devices incorporated, such as the various handrails. Overall, a very well thought-out 25 footer with all the potential to give satisfaction.
