History of Astondoa Yachts
ASTONDOA’s rich heritage dates back to 1916, when brothers Jesús and José Astondoa Martínez embarked on their boatbuilding journey, crafting rowboats and traineras in a humble carpenter’s workshop in Portugalete, Spain. However, the tumult of the Spanish Civil War briefly halted their operations. After the war, the brothers pursued separate paths, with Jesús Astondoa focusing on the construction of fishing and recreational yachts. In 1944, his son, Jesús Astondoa Santamaría, joined the family business, eventually assuming leadership of the shipyard. Astondoa quickly gained national recognition for its meticulously crafted wooden yachts and superior finishes, establishing a foundation for enduring success.
Expanding its presence along Spain’s eastern coast, Astondoa welcomed the third generation of the Astondoa family into its ranks. In the early 1980s, Astondoa embraced innovation by transitioning from traditional wooden yacht construction to utilizing advanced materials such as polyester resin reinforced with fiberglass. This shift marked a significant milestone in the company’s evolution, enabling it to enhance production efficiency and explore innovative design concepts. Embracing cutting-edge manufacturing techniques and sleek design aesthetics, Astondoa cemented its status as a leading European yacht manufacturer. Active participation in international boat shows and acclaim for its superior craftsmanship propelled the company’s growth trajectory.
By 2006, the Astondoa Group boasted over 500 employees and offered the most extensive range of yachts on the market under a single brand. Its diverse fleet encompassed open yachts measuring 40 feet, luxurious yachts exceeding 120 feet in length constructed from fiberglass-reinforced polyester resin, and majestic megayachts stretching up to 45 meters in length, featuring steel hulls and aluminum superstructures.
Throughout its storied 100-year history, Astilleros Astondoa has meticulously crafted more than 3,000 yachts, each a testament to the company’s unwavering commitment to excellence. Today, the Astondoa family continues to guide the shipyard, propelled by a legacy of hard work and dedication spanning four generations. Across the decades, Astondoa yacht builders have upheld a tradition of professionalism, reliability, and uncompromising quality, ensuring that Astondoa remains synonymous with excellence and innovation in the world of yachting.
