Spanish shipyard, Astilleros Astondoa has launched the first hull of its new 110 Century series, marking 100 years of yacht building.
The 33.5m 110 Century will be officially unveiled at Yachts Miami Beach this February and was built for a Brazilian client. When officially delivered, she will be the largest Astondoa yacht to cruise the South American region.
Astondoa is now Spain’s largest yacht builder and has now built over 3,000 boats, with sizes ranging from 12 to 67m in length.
The 110 Century has been customised to the owner’s requirement to host large groups of family and friends. She features large sun pads on the foredeck and aft of the fly bridge, offering outdoor areas for guests, as well as a bar, BBQ grill and al fresco dining. On the fly bridge, an electric roof can be opened or closed according to weather conditions.
Her interior was designed by Italian design studio, Cristiano Gatto. When commenting on the design, he explained that the owner wanted the interior to “feel like guests were on board – not in an NYC apartment.”
The design offers dark textured woods, mixed with glass and polished stainless steel, with LED lighting to brighten spaces. The main deck features a full-beam master suite and panoramic views, while the lower deck offers space for up to 10 guests across two queen and twin staterooms.
Her engine comprises of two MTU 16V 2000 M84 engines, and she can reach a top maximum speed of 24 knots and cruising speed of 20 knots. There are also two personal watercraft under the foredeck, as well as a Williams jet boat in the aft garage.
