Astondoa Yachts is a Spanish company founded nearly a century ago. Over the years, it has splashed almost 4,000 boats, some exceeding 200 feet in length, and yet, you could be forgiven if you’ve never heard of the company. It is not as common a name as some of its competitors—the Sunseekers and Azimuts of the world. And somewhat counter intuitively, the company is proud of its relative anonymity—it means Astondoa doesn’t spend a heck of a lot of money on marketing and advertising, feeling that money is better put back into the boatbuilding process. Though Astondoas are priced commensurately with Sunseeker and Azimut, the company doesn’t really see those brands as competitors. Astondoa believes it builds a higher quality boat for the same price as those companies because it doesn’t use any middlemen for its components.
For example, Astondoa owns the largest furniture company in Europe. It builds a lot of furniture for custom homes—like castles. Really. That same furniture goes into its boats. Astondoa owns its own 5-axis CNC router and can build a 90-foot mold in-factory. It has been stockpiling Burmese teak for more than 20 years. Astondoa, in effect, has figured out how to control the means of production.
What’s more, Astondoas are fully custom. For every Astondoa built, the designer Cristiano Gatto will sit down with the owner and go through every aspect of the boat with him. If the owner isn’t quite sure what he wants, Gatto is happy to offer some expert guidance. Once a plan is agreed upon, Astondoa produces a rendering in photographic detail. Then, the Astondoa workforce, which averages about 25 years on the job, gets to work.
