When I ran her in calm seas in the Mediterranean Sea off Monaco, she performed well. She is built using the same hull form as Axopar’s 37, with 22 degrees of deadrise at the transom and a narrow, axe-bow entry for slicing through seas. She cruised at 30 knots, a tick slower than the builder’s suggested cruise speed of 34 knots. At wide-open throttle, she reportedly can do 48 knots. (I didn’t drop the hammer because the boat was all gussied up for the boat show.) In terms of handling, she made hard-over turns to both port and starboard in a single boat length, and at the wheel, I felt more like I was aboard a PWC than a center-console. It was hard not to smile while driving a vessel this nimble.
