Pardo just unveiled plans for its new Endurance 72 at the Düsseldorf show, the second in its line of long-range cruisers.
The Italian yard introduced its first Endurance, a 60, at the Fort Lauderdale show last October, and the new 72 has the same slightly reversed bow, raked windshield, tinted wraparound windows, and barely visible flybridge as the original. It’s scheduled to be launched in the spring of 2024.
Standard power on the new 72 comes from twin 800-hp Volvo IPS1050 pod drives. With optional 1,000-hp IPS1350s, the boat has a range of 900 nm at 12 knots. The large engine room is prepared for hybrid power, if that’s what an owner wants. The 72 has a warped hull, with the deadrise less pronounced as it moves aft for efficiency at displacement and planing speeds.
Pardo is offering the 72 with two possible interiors. The first has the galley on the main deck with four cabins and five heads below, while the second has the galley and three cabins with four heads below.
The advantage of the galley-up version is that the galley then can serve the salon as well as the cockpit. In that case, the dining area opens completely to the exterior fold-down terrace via a side door, while the salon has sofas and tables for relaxing and entertaining. A staircase amidships leads to the day head and to the owner’s and VIP staterooms below. A forward staircase leads to two other cabins with twin beds.
The other version has the galley down in a country-kitchen arrangement with a large breakfast table for informal meals. The galley has access to the crew area, and becomes more of a service kitchen. The main deck is more open in this plan, with lots of free-standing furniture.
All the way aft, the swim platform on the Pardo 72 is fully submersible for easy access to water sports. The garage is large enough for a 13-foot tender.
