Winner of the Innovation award at the World Yacht Trophies 2013, the Astondoa 65 Top Deck brings fun and functionality to mid-size yachts in a way never seen before. Drop-down bulwarks and aft platform wings create an extraordinary entertaining space, while doors aft lead from the extended platform into a beach club-come-garage.
While on the surface this 65-foot cruiser from Astondia may look fairly conventional, it is certainly anything but. The open main deck and the aft platform are transformed thanks to drop-down bulwarks which reveal a generous, open plan deck and beach club layout. The aft platform, for example, becomes a 25-square-metre playground when opened out, overlooked by a glass spa pool. De Basto’s striking and innovative design was recognised with the Innovation award at the World Yacht Trophies 2013.
The main deck, shaded by the hardtop which also features a sunroof, becomes a magnificent and adaptable entertaining space with a dining and bar area, sun pads forward, a general outdoor saloon feel and a cockpit windscreen that can be lowered to create a through-breeze at anchor. Below decks the standard configuration offers accommodation in two guest suites, with a fully equipped lower saloon forward.
