Axopar 37 Sun Top:
Innovative Stepped-Hull Dayboat Overnights 2

Axopar 37 Sun Top
Axopar 37 Sun Top

The Axopar 37 Sun Top is a versatile Polish-built dayboat designed for enjoying a leisurely day on the water and maybe cooking lunch afloat as well. With a compact cabin below, she can also be used as a weekender for two. The helm seatbacks flip and the table opens to create al fresco dining for seven. The large hardtop provides shade for the entire central seating/dining area but a sliding sunroof can open this area up when wanted.

Hatteras GT59

The Hatteras GT59 is a maxed-out bluewater sportfisherman that is equipped with nearly every imaginable option for serious big game fishing. She has the legendary Hatteras level of joinery in high-gloss mahogany throughout, with even window frames and arched door frames that add elegance and class, which are rarely seen on this type of vessel. Below, she has three staterooms, two heads and a tackle room that can hold dozens of big game rods and reels as well as all of the extras. It can be converted into a third head. There’s a massive bait freezer under the mezzanine seating and cold storage is found everywhere around the boat, welcoming extended fishing voyages through the Bahamas, the Caribbean or anywhere else billfish are found.

A dining area is in the cockpit aft with a settee that seats six. A 30,000 BTU A/C system is standard to cool the area but a large sunroof, sliding windscreen, and opening side vents can also provide natural ventilation. Below, there’s a full galley, another dining area, two heads with separate showers and sleeping accommodations for six, including two on the convertible settee. More...

Chaparral 250 SunCoast OB
Chaparral 250 SunCoast OB

Powered with a single 300-hp Yamaha 4-stroke, she got on plane in just 3.0 seconds in our test runs and had a top speed of 51.5 mph. Her 20-degree deadrise at the transom should deliver a soft ride in choppy conditions, which sets her apart from many deckboats on the market. More...
