Astondoa Superyacht AS8

Astondoa Superyacht AS8

A masterpiece of the seas

In the second half of the year 2020, the Spanish shipyard Astondoa presented its latest superyacht: the 25.25-metre-long motor yacht AS8.

The cruiser stands out with a distinctive, streamlined design and modern lines. The hull is made from an infusion fibreglass laminate with Kevlar® reinforcement for optimum strength and durability in a lightweight ship. It is the largest new yacht in Astondoa's flybridge range and combines aesthetics and a sporty functionality.

The Spanish shipyard Astondoa is convinced of the quality of BÜFA products and the professional advice of our local staff. For more than 10 years, BÜFA composite specialities have been qualified for the construction of their superyachts.
