And the ultra-hot, and competitive brand’s Southeast-Asia dealer Derani Yachts (Phuket) will be at the boat show (stand K7 in the air-conditioned East Pavilion) to represent Axopar as well as its other hand-picked selection of brands.

Designed and developed by true boating enthusiasts for the quality and performance conscious boater Axopar boats are the result of the builder’s long time experience and passion for boating.
