The entry-level Axis Wake A20 water sports boat was redesigned “from the hull” up for 2016 with a new wake- and wave-maximizing hull, more storage and other upgrades.

“The new A20 is the boat to beat when it comes to the highest performance and quality at the best price,” CEO Jack Springer said in a statement. “We’ve redesigned this boat to give entry-level customers a world-class 20-foot water sports towboat that no other company can match on the water.”

The boat features a new interior with seating for up to 11 people, as well as the company’s Auto-Set Wedge for wake generation and wave-making hydraulic Surf Gate.

For 2016, all Axis models have an upgraded helm and windshield, updated interface software, an upgraded ballast system, a new Kicker stereo head unit, Axis-branded drop-in Igloo coolers, and three new color options.
