The new Ax8 is the first launch and the result of an ambitious new project with which Astondoa is once again taking a risk and surprising with a new line of crossover yachts: Ax8, which extends the shipyard’s Flybridged family, whose models are acclaimed all over the world.
“I am proud to have had the opportunity to give this boat a recognisable identity and style language typical of Astondoa. With the shipyard we put in a great team effort to create a modern and contemporary interior design typical of full custom boats, with tailor-made details and finishes of the highest quality. I believe this is an absolute novelty in the market for this segment of vessels.” Cristiano Gatto – Founder of CristianoGatto Design.
The Ax8, a high-end family cruiser with all the attributes to make social life at sea unsurpassed, breaks into the segment of the largest Flybridge yachts and exceeds the standards of spaciousness, comfort and elegance.
And the habitability of the new Ax8, with 6.22 metres of waterline beam, makes it unique in its segment.
The design of the Ax8 reflects the successful evolution of the Astondoa style, which, while preserving the brand’s essential lines and contemporary style, adopts the character of avant-garde sailing and enhances comfort with uncluttered, bright, functional and modern spaces.
A cozy crossover, perfect for long voyages
The shipyard’s collaboration with the prestigious designer, Cristiano Gatto, is once again a success in the styling, which exudes elegance and character, but also freshness and modernity.
The combination of noble materials and natural tones enhance the boat’s luminosity, creating the perfect atmosphere for enjoying meals and dinners on board, family evenings or simply relaxing in the middle of the sea.
The side passageways allow a linear, comfortable and safe route between the cockpit and the beach club, without forgetting the space of the interior layout in the cabin area. The Ax8 offers two spacious sundecks, with no steps between them, one on the main deck and the second on the flybridge for socializing, enjoying the open air and contemplating the sea from different heights.
The generously sized aft cockpit houses a dining and chill-out area, with views of the beach club through a protective glass panel that unifies the entire area.
The fully glazed second deck houses the helm with an ergonomic helm station and a second private saloon.
The Ax8’s galley-dining room has large front and side windows that provide good luminosity to this avant garde design space.
Sleeping area configurable according to the owner’s choice
On the lower deck, there are the VIP cabins, aft and full beam, and the generously sized guest cabin forward.
Depending on the owner’s preferences, one or two more spacious cabins complete the rest area. All have en suite bathrooms, spacious wardrobes and plenty of storage space.
The Ax8 also offers two cabins for the crew.
