Ad Astra 80 Description

S/Y AD ASTRA is new flagship from the renowned shipbuilder Fountaine Pajot. This sailing super yacht of exceptional luxury and space, executing the perfect balance between comfort and distinct. The yacht has a beach club. Down an elegant flight of steps you reach a platform that stands just above the waterline - ideal for swimmers. This can turn the whole aft area into a huge area for swimmers and sunbathers, or serve as a launch pad for divers and watersporters. The aft cockpit offers incredible entertaining space with multiple sunbeds and a very large dining table. The large forward cockpit has its own bar and a vast sunbed in order to balance the aft relaxation area Under the sunbed is a Jacuzzi. A perfect area to enjoy, relax and take in the sun. The flybridge takes on the mantle of an extra deck, the real story is the elegant wrap-around sofa which provides a really convivial spot for a big group of friends, or the whole family. The flybridges fully equipped with a full wet bar, as well as a plancha grill. A large 3m-long balcony folds down out of the bulwarks on each side of the cockpit, creating an entirely new dimension to the relaxation options here. While the balcony invites you to dive into the sea alongside, it also creates the opportunity for a sofa, built into the cockpit coaming. In effect, it adds two ‘side cockpits’ to the main cockpit. Deep sofas to starboard and free-standing seating to port with cocktail tables both enjoy fantastic views of the sea through the wrap-around windows.

Ad Astra 80 Guest Reviews

January 2023

Our family had a dreamy week on Ad Astra and Tom and Mollie were the most wonderful hosts, catering to our every need in the most comfortable, gracious manner. The boat accommodated us all so comfortably and was perfectly appointed so that we could take full advantage of relaxing among the natural beauty around us. We were so well taken care of from start to finish, from our fabulous itinerary, our sails, our excursions, and the amazing food and drinks, it was a week we will never forget. We are already thinking of when we get back on board with Tom and Mollie!´

January 4, 2023

Thank you so much for a wonderful trip. It was a delightful experience, being your guests, and even more delightful having Alan and I aboard in great company. Highlights include many braids, a puffer fish, schools of fish, some bright purple coral, and the smell of maple butter pancakes via a candle, the white beaches and Foxy‘s! We will certainly be back for more!

December 2022

You did an amazing job, making Ad Astra an idyllic vacation destination. The boat is beautifully redone, and so comfortable! But the best part was you two; your welcoming spirit and enthusiasm for making our family vacation and Christmas so memorable! Tom, you are so calm & confident, we loved our sails this week! You take such meticulous care of the boat! Mollie, the food was absolutely amazing, and every day blew us away! We came away with so many memories from barracudas, amazing lattes, backflips, the caves, tubing, snorkeling, the sail from Anegada and Soggy Dollar. You guys are the best!!

He knew his stuff, he explained sailing questions we asked, he helped set us up with great reservations, experiences and great fun! I definitely say he is 5 star!

Tom/2022

Tom is amazing. He’s a really cool guy, always supportive and all the time willing to help and explain. Highly recommended

Thomas is the best skipper ever, so helpful with our crew and the other boats. Just compliments

Tom was the best! So kind and accommodating of our requests. Truly went above and beyond. Will request him again

Tom/2022

Above and beyond, he did everything to make the experience amazing. Tom organized everything as well as taught us about the islands and a lot about sailing!

Mollie/2022

10/10. Mollie is also a legend. She cooked the most amazing meals, kept the place super tidy and became one of the crew. Will def miss her.

Mollie/2022

10/10. The most amazing food I’ve ever tried, meal after meal. Kept the boat super clean and tidy, was very organized, everything was on time and also loved to party with us which made the experience amazing

Mollie/2022

10/10. Hands down, one of the best culinary experiences I’ve ever encountered. Molly exceeded any expectations I had prior to boarding. Seriously, such a gem and a sweetheart through the entire trip.

Mollie/2022

10/10. Had to be the best ever!!! Mollie was kind, fun, engaging, an incredible cook, overall a wonderful person to be around. Would ask for her on any future yacht week bookings.

Mollie/2022

10/10. I have no words. I was absolutely blown away by Mollie. Everyday was another beautiful meal, and everything was so delicious. I wish I had a fraction of her cooking skills. She made things that I would never have chosen for myself, but I loved every single meal. She kept each day fun and fresh and creative. Not to mention, she was so organized and tidy. Our boat was definitely one of the cleanest and well kept after seeing a few other boats, and this was definitely because of Mollie. She had the best attitude all week and made sure we were well taken care of and always had fun! I never would have guessed she was new this year, she seems like she’s a veteran and definitely top tier!

Mollie/2022

10/10. Mollie was the best! Every meal was absolutely delicious, and she took great care of us. On top of that she spent ample time with us and is a great person to be around. She works and she plays, in the best way possible!

Mollie/2022

10/10. OMG her food was amazing and tended to our preferences, communicated very well, helped with tips about yacht week, different places, cleaned very well and fun overall! She is 5 start and recommend her if we could choose.
