We are happy to present the latest customers from the state of New York that started their own journey under the professional guidance of Jimmy Mathews. Their dream was to own a fully customized Astondoa As5, right on time for the summer of 2022.
We planned their trip to Astilleros Astondoa in Spain and accompanied them from the very beginning. With Astondoa’s belief- “Because there are not two people alike, there are not two Astondoa alike.”, customization is an enjoyable process right from the start. They stand firmly behind giving their customers the opportunity to imagine and create a boat that is unique to their dreams and accommodating to their needs.
Astondoa, the Spanish company, with more than 100 years of shipbuilding experience, continues to lead the yachting industry. At Astilleros Astondoa, constructing a yacht requires passion and creativity. Every vessel is designed around the preferences of each new owner. They are unique and custom-made with acute attention to detail. No two Astondoa yachts are alike.
Throughout its extensive history, the company has chosen to focus on building customized yachts rather than mass production. Aiming to satisfy an exclusive number of clients gives meaning to our work. Clients who choose Astondoa have exceptional perception of value, individuality, and quality.
As5 represents the perfect balance between sporty aesthetic and handicraft technique. The As5 is versatile and highly customizable offering multiple configurations to suit the owner. You can choose the hardtop feature for an elegant appearance or opt for a more sportier version without.
But the As5 rightfully claims its own personality, combining the charm of its aesthetics with intuitive design details, taking inspiration from the automotive sector and the best supercars with which the Shipyard shares an innovative spirit. Thus, merging aerodynamics with design to create beautiful shapes and generous spaces, the As5 was born as a one-of-a-kind yacht.
On the same level, the walkaround main deck follows the avant-garde concept of this range. Configured as a large integrated space with the living room connected to the galley, you can access the beach club through the glass doors, which provide privacy between the interior and exterior. With doors open, you gain access to both areas as well as the bow solarium.
The interior of the As5 surprises at first glance with a twist of contemporary design and an abundance of space. The sporty details and personal touches accentuate the ASTONDOA handcrafted construction we’ve come to know & love, and remind us just what it is that distinguishes this century-old brand from it’s competitors.
The spacious living-dining room, with generous glazed areas and low-profile side bulwarks, allow a panoramic view of the exterior and a feeling of being directly on the sea.
On the lower deck, you’ll find sleeping arrangements for up to 8. The master stateroom; mid-length and full beam, offers luxurious accommodations, large wardrobes and additional space for storage.
The VIP and Guest Stateroom provide space for two more passengers each.
