The helm is handsomely appointed and very functional.
The Mercury control box was comfortable to use and the big
Simrad screens convey all the information you need at a
glance. Notice how few visual obstructions there are.
The sightlines are great!

The Axopar 37 XC (standing for Crossover) has an
attractive and useful cabin area that is divided into two main
sections. There is the forward cabin that is a comfortable
sitting height and then there is what I will call the saloon that
includes the helm, passenger seating and dining space.
I felt that the Axopar's design emphasis was on exterior
space and overall versatility, but the interior spaces blend
together to support that.

The swim platform is divided for the twin Mercury Verado
300 hp V8 outboards and it has ample deck space for swimming or diving. There is a port side boarding ladder and the
platforms are down close to the water.
Other than a small step down into the cockpit, the deck is
all one level and you can walk all the way around the cabins.
Very big sliding doors to the saloon port and starboard open
that up and the side decks are thigh-high for security and
topped with black-finished rails all around. The test boat also
had a black-finished tow rig over the engines that looks
substantial. There are matching roof rails where you can
mount things like a bicycle or a kayak, and grab rails mounted
under the cabin roof overhang.
The cockpit is a generous size and there are big storage
compartments in the side decks and under the floor. Jan-Erik
emphasized the modular design that offers significant
variations in equipment and functionality. The test boat had
the optional wet bar module in the cockpit with sink, built-in

The interior seating is comfortable and functional. The helm
seats can be turned around to join the dining table. Abundant
glass areas make this boat very bright.

refrigerator/freezer and large storage spaces. Some other
choices are the aft cabin module with sleeping accommodation for two or the standard open deck version for fishing or
adventure cruising.
We found three comfortable, fold-up stern seats across
the transom and our test boat was finished in SeaDeck
cushioned decking that is non-skid and soft on bare feet.
As you move to the bow, you find a forward-facing bench
seat and a bow cushion over the anchor locker. The test boat
had a power windlass, a bow mount for a table and speakers
for the sound system.

Given the long, low profile of the Axopar 37 XC, you will be
surprised at the cabin space and accommodations. The first
thing you would notice are the unique gullwing cabin doors.
These open upward with gas strut assist and you can literally
