Astondoa: the strength of a family shipyard passed on from generation to generation

The brothers Jesús and José Astondoa Martínez started building boats in a small workshop, thus marking the beginning of the history of the ASTONDOA shipyard in 1916 in Portugalete, Spain.

However, during the Spanish Civil War, the activity was suspended.

Afterwards, Jesús Astondoa turned to the construction of fishing and pleasure boats.

In 1944, his son Jesús Astondoa Santamaría joined the family business and soon took over the shipyard. The skill and quality of Astondoa’s wooden boats, as well as their high quality finishings, allowed the shipyard to gain national recognition.

After establishing the company on the east coast of Spain, the third generation of the Astondoa family joined the shipyard. In particular, the children of Jesús Astondoa Santamaría.

Astondoa’s technical revolution: from wood to glass fiber reinforced polyester resin

The 1980s marked a milestone in the history of the shipyard. Astondoa decided to move away from its traditional methods of producing wooden boats. As a result, the shipyard began building boats out of fiberglass-reinforced polyester resin.

With this transition to more innovative production materials and elegant design, Astondoa consolidates its position as a leading shipyard in Europe.

Astondoa also participates in numerous international boat shows. As a result, the yard has won several awards for the quality of its boats.
