Finnish boatbuilder Axopar has revealed a new generation of adventure boats with the Axopar 29 range.

The Axopar 29 Cross Cabin and Sun-Top models, which debuted at boot Düsseldorf 2024 in January, have been developed from the Axopar 28, which was the first to be released by Axopar in 2014.

Peter Hrones, Founder of Eyachts, was impressed at the launch in Europe, remarking: “Every feature is meticulously crafted, elevating the Axopar 29 to a class of its own in the market.

“One particularly striking attribute is the expansive side decks, boasting a 30-percent increase over its predecessor making navigating these decks forward-facing a breeze.”

The Axopar 29 hull stays true to Axopar’s DNA; despite the increased beam, the hull maintains its 65-degree deep V profile, pronounced chines and twin steps offering stability and performance.


The 29 now reaches speeds of 48 knots despite the bigger volume, and at 20-percent higher speed, Axopar says the stats impressively show the same fuel efficiency. This Axopar is also the only 29-footer in its category to be rated category B for offshore cruising.

The bow area is optimised for socialising and relaxation, with the layout featuring an L-shaped sofa and forward-facing seat as standard with an option for a U-shaped sofa as well as a forward or rear-facing sunbed. The space has ample seating for up to eight guests.

“It’s impressive how much room they’ve created on a 29-footer, it competes with the space of the Axopar 37,” says Hrones.

“The additional high and low table legs and cushions are stored in the port locker for easy set-up of the table or sunbed layouts. Guests will really enjoy the forward-facing seat and the ability to move the sunbed to be forward-facing while underway.”

A new feature in this category is the Axopar 29 forward head and berth option, providing a private space for overnight stays or for storing gear and luggage. The fresh design transforms the space from a standard bathroom to a comfortable sleeping area, featuring electric amenities and ample storage.

Hrones, who stands 185 centimetres tall, commented on the surplus room available and the seamless transition from a standard bathroom area to a comfortable double berth. “It’s impressively spacious, exceeding my height and surprisingly wide, definitely enough room for two people comfortably,” he says.

Owners can customise the boating experience with various aft layout options, including an open aft, bench, wet bar module, or spacious aft cabin. The aft cabin is a notable upgrade, with easier access from the pilothouse, larger spaces for sleeping and complete opening garage access from the aft.

On top of the now larger cockpit fridges, Axopar has introduced the new option for a wetbar replacing the starboard fender locker offering a convenient barbecue setup, featuring a Magma barbecue mounted on a post, and a spacious deep fridge and sink configuration.

Axopar 29 Sun Top

The Axopar 29 Sun Top hosts a new opening sunroof, inspired by the success of the 37 Sun Top. Stretching to the aft of the cockpit area this sun top offers owners the choice between total sun protection or sunbathing with its electric sliding canvas roof.

The cockpit area is designed for functionality and sociability, featuring a standard layout with four aft seats and two swivelling helm seats, alongside an optional U-shaped seating configuration with a large foldable table for seamless transitions between dining and lounging modes, certainly a popular choice for Australians.

Additionally, the user-friendly helm layout ensures a pleasurable driving experience in any condition, with adjustable seats, unobstructed views, and easy access from both port and starboard.

“Having access from the driver’s side is a game-changer, making docking and taking lines a breeze,” says Hrones.


Axopar 29 Cross Cabin

The Axopar 29 Cross Cabin pilothouse and opening sunroof are further elevated from the previous 28 cabin. The area is now more spacious and functional with 360° vision from the helm, making docking and navigation a breeze. “It is clear that every detail is cleverly thought out,” says Hrones.

The first Axopar 29 Sun Top will premiere at Sanctuary Cove Boat Show in May 2024 while the first Axopar 29 Cross Cabin will make its debut at Sydney Boat Show in August 2024.
