Introducing The Totally Redesigned Axis A20


_Axis has taken the fiercest 20-foot towboat out there and made it without question

the most incredible value in watersports—without sacrificing a bit of performance._

Loudon, TN | August 5, 2015 — The sickest 20-foot boat in watersports history is back and ready to rumble. The all-new Axis A20 has been redesigned from the hull up for 2016. Renowned for its wicked agility and precision, this “little monster” is easy on the bank account and built to shred better than ever, with a new wake-and-wave-maximizing hull, all-new interior, deeper storage, and an amazing array of across-the-board 2016 upgrades, leaving the competition far behind.

Unequaled access and agility are all yours with the A20. This wake specialist features incredible handling and premium vinyl seating for as many as 11 people, plus it’s easily towed and stashed in your average garage. Nowhere else will you find a go-anywhere, do-anything boat that, at this size, can still kick up such a massive wake—especially with our Auto-Set Wedge—and peel off huge waves with our revolutionary, hydraulic Surf Gate, the first and still best wave-making technology in the industry. And with this reinvented beast, there’s never any reason to fear the chop; the A20 doesn’t get tossed around like others in its class, thanks to dialed ballast control, a cutting hull, and superior V-drive propulsion.

CEO Jack Springer is especially excited to refresh what was already the absolute best 20-footer, for the money, in the world. “The new A20 is the boat to beat when it comes to the highest performance and quality at the best price,” says Springer. “We’ve redesigned this boat to give entry-level customers a world-class 20-foot watersports towboat that no other company can match on the water. Make no mistake: our competitors’ offerings in this category don’t even begin to approach the quality and craftsmanship of the Axis A20. Get out there and see for yourself. It’s on another level.”

Every inch of an Axis boat is function-focused and crafted to be practical and comfortable. For 2016, all models get 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 gel and metal-flake color options. Once the sun drops, hang out with your family and friends and light up the night with 300 percent brighter underwater LEDs.
