Pardo Yachts: the New Pardo Endurance 60
Monday, January 20, 2020 6:41 PM
Following the worldwide success of the open walkaround range, with more than one hundred Pardo 38, Pardo 43 and Pardo 50 boats sold in just two years, having beaten the competition in the sector of luxury tenders, Pardo Yachts are ready to launch a new challenge on the market: Pardo Endurance 60, the first model of a new range which already encapsulates its concept in the name Endurance and proposes the “trawler” philosophy under a new light of style and elegance, the hallmark of every Pardo Yachts boat
The name Endurance was chosen because this new boat has long-range navigation in its DNA. It brings to mind resistance over time, performance connected with good safe navigation for many miles with low consumption. The concept of Endurance is also connected to a use of the boat for the longest possible time in maximum comfort, so that the owner can enjoy his/her time in the best possible way.
Gigi Servidati – head of new model development at Cantiere del Pardo – has strongly desired that this challenge should be characterized by several essential elements: “the Endurance 60 is a project in which the ability to navigate well in displacement at 10/12 knots and to plane at 25 knots will excel; we have studied the hull lines in depth using CFD analysis, putting to good use the know-how we have accumulated over almost fifty years in the shipbuilding sector. Low consumption, controlled speed, silent and safe navigation to facilitate transfers at night: all these characteristics make the E60 a project in which eco-sustainability also becomes a value to be preserved. All these characteristics are held together by the elegant design and unmistakable style of every Pardo Yachts boat”.
This new 60-footer has required maximum effort in terms of research, study and design for the Technical Department of Cantiere del Pardo, which availed of the collaboration of Davide Leone for the naval architecture and hull lines and Nauta Design for the interior design.
Vincenzo Candela, chief engineer of the Technical department at Cantiere del Pardo, comments the birth of the new Endurance 60 as follows: “To achieve this important goal, I availed of our in-house team of highly specialized technicians with many years of experience in design. I welcomed the challenge because I strongly believe in the Pardo Yachts project, seeing it as a normal development of the new brand projected towards a future dominated by growth in boat size and High Tech. The Endurance 60 is already prepared and optimized to welcome the future of new engines, such as the hybrid, to navigate in total silence to enter or exit ports or navigate in areas with restrictions”
Davide Leone, responsible for the naval architecture of the project, comments on the work carried out as follows: “what we designed is a hull optimized in all aspects for IPS transmission. The maximum beam of more than five meters allows to exploit the width of the boat to achieve generous internal volumes (evident characteristic observing the space of the master cabin) and to have better performance when the boat planes at significant speeds”.
Massimo Gino of Nauta Design has this to say on the precious contribution given by the Milanese firm to this new model: “For the Endurance 60 project, which marks the beginning of the collaboration between Nauta Design and Cantiere del Pardo also for motor-driven boats, we worked on an interior layout defined by the shipyard, creating a fresh and luminous style for the interiors, which brings together white lacquering and blond teak, a reinterpretation and contemporary use of teak which has always been the wood par excellence for all interiors.
The layout was conceived by Cantiere del Pardo. The main deck is characterized by the sides that can open to create a new relaxation and socialization area on the cockpit side and on the deckhouse side. The kitchen and bar positioned at the stern have windows which can open towards the sides, to create two relaxation zones with an external bar walled into the kitchen. Dining area and lounge are positioned more towards the bow on a raised zone to enjoy the scenic view. The layout designed by Cantiere del Pardo for the lower deck is the classic three cabin and three bathrooms, including that of the owner. Great importance has been given to the master cabin, characterized by large areas and stowage space and great luminosity given by the quantity of light which arrives through the hull windows and from this successful dosage of white and teak colors”.
