The hottest new boats of 2022: Axopar 45
Welcome to the Axopar 45, the largest boat ever produced by Axopar.
This year will see Axopar launch its largest boat to date, the Axopar 45. Despite its extra proportions, it is immediately recognizable as an Axopar with its familiar angular lines and a two-story hull, propelled in this case by three hors- Mercury board 300 hp V8 for a top speed of over 50 knots.
Axopar says it has chosen a triple installation in search of the most balanced power-to-weight ratio, and in particular the Mercury engines because of their fuel efficiency and their suite of driver aids (such as a joystick) that make much more intuitive use of the boat.
As with the smaller models in the range, this platform is the basis for a variety of different deck arrangements; five in total, including the fully open Spyder, the closed Cross-Cabin and three different T-top variations, from the subtle 45 T-top to the imposing Cross-Top, which features two sunroofs in addition to a wrap-around windshield .
On deck, this is the first Axopar where it is possible to have both sunbathing and a wet bar. Folding midships balconies add additional functionality to the usual practical yet stylish promenade layout.

At the rear, you have the choice between an open deck, a multi-storage compartment with sundeck or a separate aft cabin. It is likely to be usefully larger than the 37 and, for the first time, has its own toilet.
There is also more space for accommodation in the forward cabin – accessible through gullwing doors similar to those first shown on the Axopar 37.
