Axopar has just launched its new flagship 45 XC Cross Cabin, an adventure cruiser that tops out at 45 knots with three fuel-efficient 300-hp Mercury Verado outboards.

This latest and largest Axopar is long, low and lean, with a beam of only 13’ 6” and it shares the company’s increasingly popular lineup of fast boats that now starts at 22 feet. The innovative builder from Finland says the 45 is aimed at owners who want the same adventuresome spirit of smaller Axopars, but with more interior volume and deck space.

Axopar says the 45 is an alternative to larger and more expensive yachts in the 45-foot range, and “boasts a yacht’s luxuries and handling without the price tag or maintenance commitment.”

The new 45 comes in five models: The 45 XC Cross Cabin (pictured here), 45 Cross-Top, 45 Sun-Top, 45 T-Top, and 45 Spyder. They all offer a wide range of options so owners can customize their boats.

Standard features on the 45 XC Cross Cabin include the large gullwing doors that offer a seamless connection between the salon and the outdoors, midship balconies that help you get on and off easily and then create more social seating areas, two electric sliding sun roofs, two sliding doors, and an adjustable wet bar and table in the cabin for flexible space.

The forward cabin sleeps two and has an en suite head with standing headroom. An optional aft cabin can sleep two more.

Like all Axopars, the new 45 is fun to drive and highly maneuverable. The company uses an advanced infusion lamination system to make the hull, deck and stringer systems. The deep-V hull has a 20-degree deadrise aft.

The 45 comes with Axopar’s steering module that controls the bow thruster and trim tabs, and it has a Simrad touchscreen MFD for state-of-the-art navigation.

Specs.: LOA: 45’7”; Beam: 13’6”; Draft: 3’3”; Disp.: (without engines) 15,433 lbs.; Fuel: 368 gals.; Water: NA; Power: 3×300-hp Mercury V-8 Verado outboards.
