Axopar Celebrates a Decade of Adventure, and Launches Axopar 29 Range

Axopar 29

Feb 8, 2024

Axopar boats are now seen in significant numbers in Canada with good reason. The Scandinavian dayboat ethos works for many boaters here as does the company’s “Adventure” positioning, which incorporates doing things as part of the boating experience.

The Adventure Collection was launched at the Düsseldorf boot24 boat show last month. This collection represents a dedication to the spirit of adventure and freedom that is at the core of Axopar, and its two partners in this endeavour, Sail Racing, and Jobe Watersports.

A whole range of fun gear

Highlighted items from the collection include a purpose built inflatable Axopar kayak for up to two persons, an Axopar SUP, an underwater scooter, waterproof bags that will have dedicated storage locations onboard and also fixable onto the SUP board and kayak to bring them with you securely on your adventures. The Sail Racing clothing will offer a range of high-quality garments like jackets, hoodies, t-shirts, caps and bags with a focus on durability, style and functionality.

Jan-Erik Viitala, Founding Partner at Axopar Boats, says, “My dream was to create a unique collaboration where we can offer top-of-the-line products to our global community of Axoparians and all our Axopar fans. This collaboration integrates clothing, water sports gear, and our boats.”

At the event, Axopar also presented the world premiere of the all-new Axopar 29 Cross Cabin and Sun-Top at boot Düsseldorf 2024. 

The new Axopar 29 will match the design and details of the Adventure collection, where each component complements the other. When ordering the gear together with the Axopar 29 from the factory this gear will be accompanied with an integrated air pump onboard, dedicated storage space for the underwater scooter with charging and dedicated locations for the bags to be stored securely and accessible.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
