The Astilleros Astondoa Shipyard – 100 Years of History 

Yet, this successful shipyard has humble beginnings. It was founded by two brothers in Portugalete, Spain in 1916 as carpentry workshop producing traditional boats. Later, the shipyard became famous for producing handcrafted wooden fishing boats and pleasure crafts.  

This strong tradition of shipbuilding developed over the years, and through the generations. By adopting new techniques and implementing advanced technology, the company began producing fiberglass yachts in the 1980s. With striking design and innovative features, the Spanish brand quickly became a leader in the European yachting industry.  

Astondoa yachts, like the GLX range, have won awards at a number of international boat shows and are still considered exemplary yacht concepts to this day. It has the widest range of vessels in any fleet made by the same yacht brand. These include sport cruisers that are 40 feet in length, to fiberglass yachts stretching past 120 feet, to steel-hull megayachts reaching nearly 150 feet in length.
