Astondoa – 65 GLX – world debut
The 65 GLX brings a new dimension to the range. Designed for the boater who wants to grow from 40-50’ to include more guests while still enjoying the option to captain his own boat.

All furnishings are designed and built at Astilleros Astondoa, utilizing top technology along with fine craftsmanship and materials, customized to the finest detail.

The interiors of the main deck are a streamlined open space, with a fully parquet floor. The central living area is fitted with a sofa on the port side surrounding the dining table, opposite which is a second sofa against the wall. The stern swimming platform featuring a tender lift offers a submerged area to use as a beach club or to move the tender (up to 2.80 meters).
The lower deck of the first unit has a three cabin layout to sleep up to 6 people. The full-beam master suite features extraordinary volume and space. The master suite is completed by a large en-suite head with separate shower. A similar interior design distinguishes the VIP suite at the far bow, while the guest cabin features bunk beds on the starboard side. The head with separate shower in the VIP suite is shared with the third cabin and can also be used as a day toilet.
There is a surprising amount of space outside as well. The sun deck is divided into a dining area with central table and bar unit at the stern and a central outside pilot station. A retractable sun canopy shelters guests during the hottest hours of the day. The bow of the yacht is also all about relaxation thanks to the central sun pad on the deckhouse.
The Ferretti Yachts 450 is fitted with a pair of Cummins QSB 6.7 engines. The owner can choose from two versions: either 480 Mhp or 550 Mhp. The first option will give the new yacht a cruising speed of 25 knots with a maximum speed of 29 knots, while with the second option Ferretti Yachts 450 will reach a cruising speed of 27 knots and a top speed of 31 knots (preliminary data).

Forward of the main deck is the owner’s suite, occupying the full beam of the hull as the side decks are raised at this point.

Forward, an opulent single or matching pair of bathrooms is accessed off the dressing area which also features two substantial walk-in wardrobes.

To ensure everything is served swiftly and easily there is even a dumb-waiter which runs from the main deck to both the upper deck and sun deck above.
The wheelhouse is equally impressive with a vast ‘glass bridge’ incorporating the control and monitoring system in a stunning console and the captain’s cabin is also situated here adjourning the helm. Power comes from a pair of MTU 12V diesels, which will propel her to speeds of up to 22 knots. Two 80kW generators share the machinery space, where the automatic fuel handling system is sensitive not just to the needs of the engine and generators, but to the trim of the hull as well.
