Axopar 37X Sun Top: Awakening of the Adventure Boat

The Axopar 37 X Sun Top is a vessel like no other. An incredible performance day-boat launched in Australia, it has changed the game forever. Every skipper who has felt the soft suede wheel has, without fail, stated, “This is the best handling boat I’ve ever driven!”

For a month, the 37 X Sun Top spent time flying gracefully through narrow channels and trialling the offshore challenges of Queensland’s Gold Coast, which stood no match for her fierce innovative hull design.

Not long after her arrival in Australia, her new owners beckoned her to colder climates and a fresh beginning in Sydney. This is the story of a day where the water sparkled like glass in the sunlight and the tranquil water splashed clear blue hues.

Its bow slicing through waves like a hot knife through butter, she travelled offshore from Pittwater to Sydney Harbour on a smooth 45-minute trip, cruising at 30 knots. With an extended family of cousins and children aboard, she arrived at a quiet bay named Castle Rock, calling out her royal name. The one- and four-year-old passengers safely clambered around the secure walkaround railings with smiles from ear to ear.

A feast of fresh sushi and ice-cold beers kept cool from the various fridges were relished and enjoyed to the beat of the powerful new sound system. Suited up with snorkels, cousins Tony and Marnie were tempted to dive in and take a peek of what lay beneath the water.

When the young ones were tucked into the spacious cabin, the crew ducked around the corner to Shelly Beach via the picturesque Opera House and Harbour Bridge. It was here that the Axopar hung out by the surf break, watching the surfers ride the waves and then picking up our friend and utilising the roof racks.

After one of the most enjoyable days the family have ever had out on the water, it was time to head back to Pittwater. Rounding Barrenjoey Head, the setting sun twinkled on the shining new hull. There is absolutely no way to fault such a perfect day.

“Throughout the day the boat was a smooth and comfortable ride, easy to manoeuvre with good visibility. It was the best offshore run that I have ever had in both directions from Pittwater to Sydney Harbour. The morning rundown was fast and flat with a moderate SE swell. We were cruising at 35 knots with the boat seated firmly. On the run back to Pittwater, we had a 20-knot north easterly wind that caused a short surface chop. Sitting on 38 knots with the bow trimmed nicely, it was a smooth and dry ride,” said skipper, Joe Fox.

Eyachts, the Australian dealer, have now sold four of these new models off the plan and are excited to take more people out to demonstrate the incredible capability. Contact them at boats@eyachts.com.au or on (02) 9979 2443 to book a viewing or test drive.
