Until now, Pardo, the Italian builder, has established a worldwide reputation for clean, fast walkaround boats with striking ultra-modern lines. Indeed, it has built more than 100 Pardo 38s, 43s, and 50s in just the past two years. Now, the yard is expanding its reach, making the Pardo Endurance 60, a long-range luxury cruiser, while still paying homage to its family lines and aesthetics.
The new Pardo Endurance 60 is a three-stateroom, three-head cruiser with the minimalist Euro style (and the iconic Pardo bow) that have defined the company. Standard power comes from two 550-hp Volvo IPS700 pod drives; with twin 600-hp IPS800 drives, the boat can cruise efficiently at 10 to 12 knots in displacement mode, or top out at 25 knots on plane.
It also elaborates on the latest trend of enhancing the boat’s inherent social space by building terraces that fold down on each side from the forward part of the cockpit and the aft part of the deckhouse. These are large enough to hold chairs and dining tables, and can lower to surface level.
The galley and bar toward the back of the salon have windows that open to the aft deck. The dining and lounging areas of the salon are more forward, and are raised so guests can enjoy the view.
The flybridge has the upper helm with sun pads, a sofa and a fridge, providing both a navigation and social area.
On the accommodation deck, the master suite is full-beam amidships, with a dressing area, sofa under the side windows and several large wardrobes. The VIP stateroom is in the bow; the owner can order a bed that can be split into two single beds, or one double bed. The third cabin has two beds. All the cabins have en suite heads and showers.
A crew cabin is located under the aft deck, with two beds and a head and direct access to the engine room.
