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”.
As regards the main deck, maximum importance has been given to the livability and usability of the space: one of the strong points of the E60 is the outside area of the stern where two lateral terraces create an area of 33 m2 dedicated to relaxation. This area also has the added feature of keeping life on board in contact with water as much as possible, recreating a real terrace on the sea. The sleek design of the lines creates a feeling of continuity with the level of the sea and does not disturb the harmony of the lines with heights that exceed the structures.
The area outside the stern is characterized by a dining area with table and chairs, protected from the sun by an electric Bimini top with which you can navigate in total safety, even leaving it open. The stern area is completed by a cockpit that can be hydraulically “lowered” and proves convenient for recovering the tender. Always in line with the walkaround range, it was decided to maintain the same proportion and comfort for the guardrails which take from the stern to the bow area, also equipped and designed to be a further area dedicated to relaxation: the features of this area are a sundeck with recessed cushions of a truly generous size and an aperitif area furnished with table and comfortable seats.
Climbing up a level, the flybridge zone is a true novelty for a Pardo Yachts project: based on the owner’s needs, it is possible to decide how much to equip it. This superstructure differentiates itself from what we are used to seeing, because it is decidedly light with a moderate height: this allows to keep the barycenter of the boat low, to the full advantage of navigation and general aesthetics. Designed to enjoy life to the full “en plein air”, the fly can be furnished with sofa and sundeck with all cushions recessed flush. It is also possible to have a second command zone complete with negative windscreen and refrigerator cabinet.
Cantiere has wanted to satisfy the requests of today’s market making it choose IPS 700 HP (800 opt) Volvo engines for easy maneuverability, maximum safety and reduced consumption. Besides these advantages, the IPS engines make it possible to install Dynamic Positioning System, an incredible advantage during mooring because it keeps the boat still in one point making the maneuvers simple and feasible, even with a reduced crew.I
Moving on to the interior space, again it is the over fifty years of experience in the world of sailing of Cantiere del Pardo that shines through: this know-how is clear to see in the optimum use of the volumes of the areas.
The continuity between interior and exterior is essential on board the E60 and the large windows of the saloon are a perfect example of this. The kitchen and bar are at the stern and have lateral windows that can be opened towards the sides to create a zone with bar facing outwards. Furthermore, if the accordion-style door that separates dinette and cockpit is held completely open, an enormous continuous space is created which gives a sense of total freedom, enhanced also by the negative glass positioned in front of the control console. Technical motivation (in the event of bad weather and heavy sea, the water does not flow on the glass to the advantage of visibility) aside, this also has an important aesthetic role, giving a feeling of all-round depth and freedom.
The interior command zone is characterized by a side door on the right, which allows the skipper to have direct access to the lateral walkway in the mooring phases, without having to disturb any guests sitting in the dinette or in the cockpit. The saloon houses a fully equipped kitchen, positioned at the entrance and both the table inside and the table outside the cockpit are easily reached. The dining zone and the lounge area are positioned more towards the bow on a raised zone that provides an exceptional scenic view.
The design of the lower deck proposes a long-lasting style: the family feeling with the walkaround range is clear and characterized by simple and clean-cut lines in harmony with colors that give the environments luminosity and freshness. There are three cabins and three bathrooms and maximum livability has been guaranteed. The master cabin positioned at the center of the boat is a generous size, because it exploits the maximum width of the boat: the choice of this position is not casual but rather a strong message of how much the owner is at the center of this new project. Many details make this space the flagship of the interior layout: the vanity area for women, the comfortable sofa under the windows and the several large spacious wardrobes.
As with any Pardo Yachts project, great freedom has also been left to the owner to customize the new Endurance 60 on board, allowing him/her to choose between a large variety of materials, fabrics and colors. All the furniture, in line with the Made in Italy style of Pardo Yachts is made entirely in the carpentry department, flagship of Cantiere del Pardo. The timeless elegance and the modern shapes of each single element are enhanced by the skilled and expert hands of our artisans, without sacrificing functionality and safety. Every Pardo Yachts boat stands out for quality, solidity and wood finish.
This know-how started in 1973 and avails of the great tradition of Italian furniture makers. A skill acquired and perfected over time, handed down by the master artisans from generation to generation. A wealth of knowledge, which has always been enclosed in each and every boat of Cantiere.
