Axopar - The Train Factory Launch

1 THE LAUNCH REVOLUTION of the axopar 37

the launch of the axopar 37 revolution

LET THE ADVENTURE BEGIN

Who in their right minds would come up with the crazy idea of asking guests to voluntarily travel to Finland in mid-November – to be met by rain, snow, darkness and cold winds? We wanted to show the international press and our dealers another world of boating; a more extreme, adventurous one – or as we would call it, the Finnish way of all-weather boating. And actually, it worked. More than 20 international magazines and 100 dealers from all over the world came to Helsinki, the hometown of Axopar Boats, for the biggest launch event ever held in Finland for a marine brand. During the Axopar and BRABUS Marine International Dealer and Press Days we revealed the ground-breaking new Axopar 37 REVOLUTION prior to its world premiere in Düsseldorf, JANUARY 2020. Held in three different locations, the main event being in a former industrial building, Vallila Train Factory, members of the press and dealers had the opportunity to be the first in the world to explore the revolutionary new Axopar 37-range, and also had the chance to discover the world of BRABUS and BRABUS Marine.

DAY 1 19.11.13

WELCOME TO VALLILA TRAIN FACTORY

The vast Train Factory halls, designed by Bruno Granholm, were completed in 1901. Operations started in 1903, and the workshop produced most of the wooden passenger carriages and all steel wagons for local traffic used in Finland. Later the factory was used to manufacture and maintain railway wagons. The largest assembly hall was over one hectare, and by the late 1950s, around 1,500 staff were employed there. Today, a residentia l area called Konepaja is being built on the machine shop area and its former railway yard. The industrial halls built at the turn of the 20th century have been protected and re-used; they are now called the Vallila Magazines/The Train Factory.

7

Dealers and Press arrived at the Vallila Train Factory to take part in the reveal of the new Axopar 37 range in an über-cool, industrial environment that completely challenged expectations in terms of boat launch venues.

8

When guest entered the factory, they were met by three different themes; Miami Beach, with palm trees, beach seating and a DJ playing, a cosy, laid-back “living room” area with Fatboy furniture and a container bar next to it, and an exclusive “bond-esque” black and red area to present the world of BRABUS Marine.

The best way to a man’s heart!

THE AXOPAR 37 SPYDER The launch of...

The excitement is through the roof ; dealers and press gathering for the launch of the new Axopar 37 Spyder. The Spyder is an ultimate challenger and a trendsetter, an exciting dive-excursion boat, a wakeboarding or water-ski boat and a true play- mate for blasting offshore, made possible by its user-friendly characteristics and its safe, responsive nature.

21

The 37 Spyder will keep on giving, not just for high-speed pleasure and undiluted fun, but it ’s also a boat that will satisfy the senses, even when lying at anchor, with an easily mounted, light-weight sun-shade providing shelter from the sun in the cockpit area.

Slipping the cover off the über-cool Axopar 37 Spyder, while the Beatles’ REVOLUTION plays in the background. From an ultra-pleasant day-cruiser to an uber-cool sports-weekender, the Axopar 37 Spyder is a wonderfully sociable boat with a wide and universal appeal, making this model one of the most versatile and practical ones in the Axopar range.

22

23

Old gives new life - a dormant train factory springs to life when the new Axopar flagship is unveiled. The world’s press and dealers gathered in earnest to be the first few privileged individuals to see the new model in the flesh.

Optional aft cabin for accommodating two additional passengers onboard, now even more comfortable and spacious than before.

The Axopar 37 Spyder is a true competitor to RIBs and open speedboats, but with so much more space for socialising, safer passage and extraordinary comfort. Day-boating has never been so much fun.

26

27

A completely new solution to boats – the Gullwing Door concept is introduced as an extension to the front cabin. An entirely new space experience that com- pletely redefines how an enclosed front cabin can be best utilised to provide a more sociable feeling, and full interaction with one’s surroundings, making the front cabin feel like it 's part of the outdoors.

28

Foredeck seating gives room for a quiet conversation under the stars with your favourite captain. Or just enjoy the breeze and scent of the sea.

29

The new model is more sociable, with enough seating for bridge, poker or a good lobster dinner with friends. Just sit back enjoy the day ’s catch or the captain’s cruising.

30

Through new intuitive solutions, the driving experience is brought even closer to the ease and simplicity of driving a car. The driver-focused ergonomic helm, with its clean and uncluttered dashboard, ensures the skipper will always remain confident and in control when handling the boat, even single-handed.

31

THE AXOPAR 37 SUN TOP The launch of...

The Sun-Top version of the ground-breaking new Axopar 37 deserves to be launched in true Miami style. Palms, sand, beach chairs and flamingos formed the launch scenery around the 37 ST in the Train Factory. The Axopar 37 Sun Top is the perfect combination of open and enclosed boating - a real game changer. The new 37 ST version, with its full-length shaded roof, is loaded with a plethora of innovative functionality and creature-comforts.

32

33

34

The Axopar 37 Sun-Top has more than enough ver- satility for enjoying all day long hospitality, all kinds of water-sports fun, and also mixing the perfect boating cocktail by adding friends and family. It is in every way a long-distance, com- fortable passage-maker.

After the presentations and launch of the REVOLUTION range it was time for the Axoparty! Dealers and Press were offered a selection of gourmet street food, and the talented bartenders offered not only the world-famous Napue Gin & Tonic, served with rosemary and cranberries, but also a selection of other drinks, where Finnish ingredients such as sea-buckthorn were mixed to create unique cocktails. Beer lovers were treated to premium beers from Malmgård Brewery, which in 2019 won the World Beer Awards for the World’s Best Dark Beer for its Belgian Style Strong beer. An Axoparty wouldn’t be complete without our Finnish games, and our guests participated enthusiastically in all activities.

45

The new Axopar container concept was introduced during the event for international dealers. The container can be used for both outside and inhouse events to serve as a customer welcoming area, where customers can be treated to the full Axopar brand experience.

DAY 2 19.11.14

During the sea trials, which were held on the UNESCO World Heritage site on Suomenlinna Island, a former maritime fortress, we were all able to experience true and honest all-weather boating onboard the new Axopar 37 XC Cross Cabin and Axopar 37 Sun-Top. The sea trials, which took place in typical Finnish November weather, were a great chance to really feel the revolutionary handling and per- formance of our new fleet. BRABUS Marine also offered sea trials of the BRABUS Shadow 500 Cabin Black Ops Limited Edition ‘1 of 28’, which had its world pre- miere during the Monaco Yacht Show in late September. REVOLUTIONARY SEA TRIALS

Suomenlinna Island is a historic place and a former military base. It was the perfect playground to sea-trial the adventurous new Axopar models.

THE AXOPAR 37 XC CROSS CABIN The launch of...

The new Axopar 37 XC Cross Cabin is ”the Gran Turismo of the seas”. This new Crossover challenges convention in both looks and onboard functionality. It brings a new era to all-weather boating. Never before has an all-weather boat looked this striking, instantly turning heads wherever you go with its captivating modern looks, challenging the perception of traditionally ‘boring’ enclosed cabin ‘work’ boats.

65

With 50% of the current A-37’s being sold as cabin versions, we are thoroughly focused on enhancing the concept to ensure this boat will continue to amaze wherever it goes.

The 37 XC opens a world of possibilities for safe, extended voyages in comfort, even in unpredictable weather. It takes you further on your journey, whether it be in the harsh cold seas of Helsinki, in the sunny and warm Caribbean or in the bustling waters of Manhattan. The Axopar 37XC is the perfect platform for every adventure at sea.

66

67

Forget the old prejudice that a cabin boat is all just about spending time inside; the new A- 37 XC raises the outer spaces to equal importance and functionality, as sociable and practical as it is comfortable inside.

68

The large sliding canvas roof, together with the two large sliding doors, really opens up the cabin to the elements on days when the weather allows.

Even when alone, the practical layout and driver-focused features ensure that the skipper will always remain confident and in control when handling the boat single-handed.

SMOKE SAUNA EXPERIENCE Saunasaari (Sauna Island)

We are impressed that so many dealers and journalists had the courage – the Finnish “Sisu” (roughly translated as strength of will, determination, perseverance) – to join us for a traditional smoke sauna experience at Saunasaari (Sauna Island). After a long day at sea in cold, rainy and windy conditions, the smoke sauna and a (short) swim in the cold sea was definitely something adventurous for our guests.

86

87

In Saunasaari guests had the chance to relax in two different smoke saunas, bathe in hot tubs, swim in the sea and treat their taste buds to Finnish snacks and meals. A peaceful archipelago atmosphere can be felt in the smoke saunas, which provide the most authentic sauna experience.

88

One of the saunas has two old fire boxes that spread the right amount of warmth. This sauna is heated from inside and has no chimney. The second sauna has three thousand kilos of stove rocks, which are heated from outside, keeping the warmth stable throughout the whole sauna experience.

89

THANK YOU

We want to warmly thank all journalists and dealers who travelled from around the world to join us, from countries like Australia, Taiwan, Bermuda, Great Britain, Russia, Norway and the USA, to mention just a few. We love that you share this passion with us!
