Astondoa, a family owned company with more than 90 years of experience in the luxury yacht manufacturing business, has achieved, over time, the perfect combination of technology and craftsmanship, the key to their overwhelming success in the international nautical market.
The Spanish company’s growth, over the last few years, has positioned it as Spain’s main shipyard and one of the most relevant in Europe. With a flawless history of commitment and quality, it has delivered more than 3,000 vessels, and their current production output reaches 100 units per year.
Astondoa’s newest line, Top Deck, is proof of the brand’s pledge to modernity, luxury, design and comfort. The first model of the series, Astonda 63 Top Deck, made its public debut at the 2012 Miami International Boat Show in the United States. It also gathered great reviews at the Cannes Boat Show in France during the month of September 2013.
The yacht’s elegant lines and innovative use of forms, materials and textures, give this model an attractive casual design and intelligent performance. The yacht was created with fun and enjoyment in mind. It comes with jet ski, mini submarine, water slides, Jacuzzi, outdoor terraces and comfortable lounges.
She was designed by Luiz de Basto, one of the world´s most celebrated yacht designers, in collaboration with Astonda and other leading companies in the field. The 63 Top Deck is distinctive in many ways, and the company plans to include a fly bridge in the deluxe model. On the other hand, a side exit next to the spacious storage space for all kind of special toys, make this design unique and very functional.
The Spanish firm used cutting-edge materials and state-of-the-art technology, including soundproofing in the engine room. In addition, the Astondoa 63 Top Deck was built using a technique called infusion, which allows for a homogeneous and precise application of the resin. The result is a more rugged hull that weighs less than conventional hulls used in other vessels, which helps the yacht save fuel, avoiding the emission of harmful pollutants into the environment.
Astonda has come up with an attractive design that reflects the brand’s philosophy of luxury, modernity and functionality. Soft lines, careful decoration, and optimum use of space both inside and outside define this yacht. Furthermore, each yacht can be customized according to the client’s specifications through Astondoa’s Custom Line System. ■
