A 100 years of boat building across 4 shipyards in Spain Astilleros Astondoa presented its new 100 Century model during the Cannes Yachting Festival. The new yacht is the consolidation of the Century project, being the second model in the range. The WSB team take a closer look at this enticing spectacle from Astondoa.
In Santa Pola, just 10 minutes from the international airport of Alicante, the shipyards have an area of more than 30,000 m2 and facilities dedicated entirely to the construction of yachts up to 122 feet. The entire production process is carried out solely and exclusively within the shipyard, always attending to the needs of each shipowner.
The prototypes of each boat are made with the latest CAD-CAM technology. Using a 5-axis milling machine, the largest in Spain for the production of boats, models of size 1: 1 designed to the millimeter are made. Later, through processes created in the shipyard, these models become molds for the construction of the boats. Astondoa has ships dedicated exclusively to the realization of polyester, where all the parts of the boat are manufactured separately using the latest techniques such as the construction of parts by infusion and vacuum.
A yacht of 30.50 meters whose exterior and interior design, advanced but stable, works of the design department of the shipyard like its older brother the model 110, in which draws attention its lines, unmistakable characteristic of the new Century range with own signs of identity as is the external design of similar patronera in the five models expected of the range, with large glass areas throughout the ship with a stateroom of shipowner occupying all the mage of the yacht in the main deck and four cabins in the bottom cover. An extraordinary high bridge in both dimensions and access allows to pass from bow to stern without need to change levels,
The unmistakable style of the range as well as its elegance are already a guarantee in the world of luxury yachts, knowing how to combine the wide spaces and the innovative design adapted to the tastes of each customer, doing as is customary in the shipyard of each unit a unique and unrepeatable piece.
The interior decoration is the work of the prestigious studio “Cristiano Gatto Design” which has adapted each unit to the personal taste of the owner, creating an extraordinary environment with solutions adapted to the highest demands of Astondoa customers.

Building an Astondoa boat requires passion and commitment. Each boat is designed 100% to the taste and needs of each customer, no two Astondoas are alike. After a long experience in the sector, Astondoas deliver on what they know best: large, tailor-made boats. Their ambition is not to manufacture thousands of ships, that is a purpose already surpassed. The 100% satisfaction of few but very demanding clients makes their work incredibly niche and needed in a very competitive industry.
