Mercury Marine is promoting the success of its newest boatbuilder partnership with the award-winning Finnish powerboat builder Axopar.

Since last fall, the Finland-based boat manufacturer has reeled in the Best of Boats winner and the Motor Boat of the Year award for the Axopar 28.

In addition, Axopar 24 Open took home the Motorboat of the Show in the open boat category at the Helsinki Boat Show and, most recently, Axopar was awarded the European powerboat of the year award during the Dusseldorf boat show.

All of the boats are powered by Mercury Marine outboards.

“It is incredible what Axopar has been able to do in less than two years,”  Mercury Marine Europe, Middle East and Africa president Mike Shedivy said in a statement. “They first broke out on the scene in 2014 and have been a force ever since. The awards speak for themselves. Axopar is a brand on the rise and we are excited to be their exclusive outboard partner.”
