Axopar’s Triumph at Kata Rocks Poker Run

The Kata Rocks Poker Run around the island race last month saw the largest gathering of Axopar’s to date, with five boats completing the event and the first boat back being the Axopar 37 “Volare”, closely followed by another Axopar 37, “Noh Rules”, who ended-up taking first place with the best 5 card Poker hand.

The third edition of the race took place on Sunday 11 December 2022 and saw it to be a beautiful day with enthusiastic participants. The route around the island of Phuket starts at Kata Rocks, with a second start at Koh Rang Noi.

On the way, participants pick-up playing cards at five designated points along the course, creating their Poker hand.  The prize winners are the boats with the best Poker hand.

A distinct level of friendly ‘Miami Vice’ vibes is always part of the Poker Run, with fun, water, speed, and luck all playing a part in the day.

This year first place went to Axopar 37 “Noh Rules”, captained by Derani Yacht’s very own Ian Hewett and Alex Hewett, who won a two night stay at the prestigous Kata Rocks.

A great day was had by all and the Axopar’s will be back in-force later this year to defend their title!

Axopar 22 T-Top Introduction

Ideally suited to boating in Southeast Asia where protection from the ever-enduring suns rays is a must, Axopar has just announced the Axopar 22 T-Top as the latest addition to Axopar’s 22 footer range of boats.

The ‘full-open’ Axopar 22 Spyder was launched in December last year, and the Axopar 22 T-Top takes the ownership experience even further. The all-weather T-Top roof consists of a fixed canvas top within a GRP surround, mounted to a raked-back, cool-looking, black painted aluminium targa-frame.

With substantial headroom, the cleverly proportioned size and shape of the T-Top roof will ensure a good deal of protection from the elements, both for those seated at the driving console and for those seated in the areas immediately behind.

The T-Top roof is also available with an optional folding canvas top that will open up the cockpit to the sun when wanted, or stay closed for maximum shade.

The T-Top roof is also available for both the Axopar x Jobe Revolve and Revolve XXII special edition models. The roof is white GRP on the Revolve, and when choosing the Revolve XXII it comes with the same hand painted special turquoise colour as the boat.
