Over the years, nearly 4,000 Astondoa boats, some up to about 200 feet long,
have splashed happily into the water, and yet you could be forgiven if you´ve never
heard of the company. They are not as common a name as some of their
competitors-the Sunseekers and Azimuts of the world. And that´s becausetraditionally they haven´t spent a heck of a lot of money on marketing and
advertising, particularly in the U.S., instead opting to put the money back into the
boatbuilding process. But that´s about to change, as the company is gearing up to
make a push into the American market, and your consciousness.
What´s more, though Astondoas are commensurately priced with vessels from
Sunseeker and Azimut, the company doesn´t really see those brands as competitors. Astondoa believes they build a higher-quality boat for the same priceas those companies, and they say they can do that because they don?t use any
middlemen for their components.
