Axopar, the highly successful and innovative builder from Finland, will introduce a new 45-foot flagship at the Düsseldorf show, starting Jan. 22.

The new 45 shares the same DNA as earlier Axopars, with its angular lines, twin-stepped hull and fuel-efficient power-to-weight ratio. Powered by three 300-hp Mercury Verado outboards, the Axopar 45 will top out at more than 50 knots.

It will have gullwing doors, similar to those on the Axopar 37, to make access to the salon easier, as well as side-opening platforms to extend the usable seating space. The forward cabin and its head and shower will have standing headroom. The aft cabin will have its own head, for the first time.

Axopar says it designed the 45 in response to owners’ desires for a larger version of its adventure cruisers.  Axopar was founded in 2014. When it introduced its first boat, a 28, it won design awards around the world, and the company started to carve out its niche in adventure boating. The 28 was one of the few boats of its size to have a CE category B offshore certification.

Axopar launched a 37 in 2017 and then updated it last year as its “Revolution” model. So far, it has sold more than 500 37s around the world. Axopar’s production has been growing by 30 percent a year. The boats have been popular at shows in the U.S., and new owners have praised them for their performance and seakeeping abilities. The general comments are that Axopars are fun to drive.

The new Axopar 45 will be offered in five different models: The open Spyder, three T-Top variations, and the enclosed Cross-Cabin for cruising, with two cabins, two heads, two sunroofs and an integrated wraparound windshield. The 45’s LOA is 44’ 11” and it has a beam of 13’ 9.”

The Cross-Cabin has a functional walkaround layout. Owners can choose between an open deck and a storage compartment with a sun pad or second cabin aft. Read more:
