Project: Astondoa 63 Top Deck

Some projects come which try to re-invent the wheel of how a boat should look, many go while some are perceived well by the market and create a new segment.  The Astondoa 63 Top Deck designed by Luiz de Basto is a very innovative concept for its layout, looks, and what it brings on the table.  From a certain point of view the 63 Top Deck can look as it is one of those crusing boats which take tourists around in popular coast line areas, investigate close and you notice this is not the case.  Surely looking at the renderings it brings a lot of fresh design in a nineteen meter sport yacht.  Obviously the most interesting part is the main deck and its full use of space from fore to aft.  This creates an unusual spacious area for entairtainment, with bar areas, lounges, sunpad, and a jacuzzi spa bath.  Below the standard layout offers two cabins sleeping five, plus a saloon galley lounge area to fore.  Power is twin Volvo 700hp with IPS pod propulsion with estimated top speeds of 36 knots and a cruise of 25.
