Astondoa Yachts

Spain’s largest builder of luxury motor yachts, Astilleros Astondoa offers a wide range of semi-custom and custom vessels from 12.19m to 60m.

History of Astondoa Yachts

The shipyard was founded in 1916 by Jesús Astondoa Martínez, and has remained primarily a family-run business ever since. By embracing technological advances in the yachting industry, Astondoa gracefully transitioned from the wooden yacht era to become one of Europe’s leading composite motor yacht builders.

Notable Astondoa Superyachts

Astondoa’s entry into the superyacht echelons came with the 2007 launch of the 45.80m custom, steel-hulled Motor Yacht Samurai One, followed by the 45.80m ex-Amaranta P (now Panakeia), in 2008. Both superyachts feature interiors by Cristiano Gatto Design and exterior styling by Astondoa.


Headquartered in Santa Pola, the Astondoa Group maintains four other production facilities throughout Spain, at Gallarta (Vizcaya), La Unión (Murcia), Vigo (Galicia) and Almansa (Albacete). Each factory is capable of building a different size range of luxury yachts in Astondoa’s Open, Flybridge, Top Deck, Flybridge, Motoryacht or Megayacht series. The shipyard utilises advanced resin-infusion techniques to build most of its yachts of composite; however, it also builds custom superyachts of aluminium and steel. Astondoa fabricates most of its yachts’ interior furnishings in-house.

In addition to building luxury yachts, the Astondoa Group also operates superyacht marinas, including the Marina Miramar in Santa Pola.
