New Model: Astondoa 63 Top Deck

If you are looking for a yacht purely dedicated to entertainment in outdoor spaces may be this one is for you. Presented in Cannes the Astondoa 63 Top Deck is clearly trying to bring a fresh unedited approach to the sport yacht sector.  Here at PowerYacht when seeing the renderings of this new Astondoa which is a project from Luiz de Basto back past Spring, we did say the Spanish builder are up to something different.  The main characteristic of the 63 Top Deck is definitely the amount of space it has dedicated for outdoor space, that is a full floor from bow to stern.  This Top Deck, is a single level area offering diverse spots; from a large fore sun-pad, a bar lounge style behind the helm under the hard top amidships, and last a small jacuzzi pool to stern.  The exterior floor space on the 63 Top Deck also increases by about 20% size thanks to opening balconies, and expendable bathing platform aft.  Below the Astondoa 63 Top Deck also offers an interesting layout with two en-suite served guest cabins amidships, and a galley with a relaxed entertainment area to fore.  There is also a crew cabin with a shower head located in the side of the beach garage, which also features a nice day head to starboard.  This last is surely an unedited feature for a yacht measuring nineteen meters in size.  But in the end the Astondoa 63 Top Deck is an unedited yacht.
