The interface module can manage and monitor up to 32 outputs.

Astondoa 110 Century has been nominated as one of the finalist of the World Superyacht Awards 2017

The Century 110’ is a declaration of principles for the new and updated era adapted to today's yachts. This is an extremely manoeuvrable ship with megayacht features. It is designed for large groups of family or friends who want to experience the open air with adjustable sunbeds on the bow and the stern, teak decks, and everything needed for outdoor living. The flybridge also makes it possible to enjoy the sea in all types of weather conditions.

The ship has a modern style with bold and balanced lines. It is sporty yet welcoming.
There is a wide array of technology on board, such as a retractable sunroof that opens with the touch of a button. The Sky Lounge is the perfect setting for gatherings or parties at sea or in the marina.
The outdoor galley is intended to be used more frequently than the indoor galley thanks to the barbecue grill, wet bar and outdoor dining area to provide countless daytime and evening alternatives whilst enjoying the sky or a cocktail. Two three-person jet skis fit under the deck, and the stern garage stores a Williams jet tender for reaching shores that are inaccessible for the yacht.
The swim platform provides convenient access to the aft deck that houses a dining area and a sunbed.    Meticulous details have been taken into consideration, such as installing 16 refrigerators throughout the yacht at outdoor and indoor locations as well as in every cabin.

BW Fleet Management Finds Safety and Reliability

Samson 12-strand lines made with Dyneema® SK78 fiber replace failing jacketed mooring lines

In 2013, BW Fleet Management (BWFM) was facing a safety and operational issue: their jacketed HMPE mooring lines were failing. At one point, seven lines failed on a single vessel during a berthing. This problem was being experienced by other LNG operators in the industry, as well.

After a full investigation of the situation and gaining a new understanding of the
types of mooring lines available, BW FM determined the best way to ensure the
safety of their fleet and their crews was to replace the jacketed mooring lines throughout the fleet. Once the decision was made to address the issue with non-jacketed lines, BW FM considered several manufacturers, and decided to proceed with Samson’s nonjacketed, single-braid 12-strand mooring lines, AmSteel®-Blue, made with Dyneema® SK78. The combination of Samson’s unparalleled industry expertise and their unmatched experience using this innovative grade of Dyneema® helped BW make the decision.
