Spanish boatbuilder Astondoa is a family-owned shipyard that was founded by Jesus Astondoa in 1916. Astonodoa offers its clients a high level of customization and the motor yachts in their GLX line range from 66 to 126 feet. We stopped by the 80 GLX at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show to learn more, and shot this First Look Video.
The GLX series are flybridge models that combine generous interior spaces and sporty, sleek and speedy-looking exterior lines. The naval architecture is by Astondoa’s in-house design team, while the interior is by Italian designer, Cristiano Gatto.
Astondoa’s construction process, from hull lamination to interior décor, is executed in-house. That means greater customization at a better price. The configuration of staterooms, including the placement of stairs, stowage, and heads, may be personalized. The model we visited even had a hidden door to separate the helm and galley from the saloon for greater privacy when the yacht is professionally crewed.
Four cabins with en suite heads are suggested by the builder. The full-beam master is amidships with his and hers heads joined by a shared shower. This configuration of the bathroom separates and insulates the master stateroom from the noise of the engine room.
