4 mins read

Good start to the beginning of the nautical calendar for Cantiere del Pardo. The shipyard, indeed, will join the end-of-summer boat shows to introduce two new models: the GS42 LC and the Pardo 38. Both models will be unveiled at Cannes Yachting Festival in the evenings of September 10th and 11th.

Grand Soleil 42 LC

Cantiere del Pardo has given birth to the Grand Soleil 42 LC, a boat designed for medium-range comfortable cruising.

GLS42 in CannesDesigned in collaboration with Marco Lostuzzi, the hull of the boat is intended to guarantee extraordinary stability thanks to its special design and to a well-proportionate sail plan that is designed to offer the best comfort at sea without sacrificing the high-performance sailing standards.

Two winches on each side (electric as an option) are located near the steering position in order to guarantee increased comfort and easier handling when cruising, even with a reduced crew. The in-mast furling system for the mainsail and the self-tacking jib with recessed tracks simplify the control of the boat. The wide side-decks take you from aft to bow with ease, the coach roof area forward of the mast providing a great place to lounge on the sunbeds.

The boat has an overall length of 13.85 meters and a waterline length of 12.95 meters. The new GS 42LC will be available in two versions: one equipped with a rollbar to free the deck from mainsail manoeuvres and with seating options to stern of the wheelhouse, and the other without a rollbar, with an improved sail plan and no stern seating.

The interiors will also offer two versions, respectively with two or three cabins, served in both cases by two bathrooms. Both the galley and the salon convey luxury and comfort, as befits a true Long Cruiser.

Pardo 38

Cantiere del Pardo is about to introduce its third motor-powered boat. Under the Pardo Yachts brand, in fact, it has already built the Pardo 43 in 2017 and the Pardo 50 in 2018.

Pardo 38 is 11.90 meters Pardo 38long and 3.6 meters wide. The new model of Pardo Yachts’ line is characterized by a deep V-hull that guarantees excellent maneuverability and seaworthiness standards.

Pardo 38 has a linear design. The deck extends on one single level, replicating a highly appreciated characteristic of the previous models. In line with the attention to detail and style that has always characterized Pardo Yachts, the shipyard offers many customization possibilities in terms of colour, fabric and upholstery options.

A carbon-fiber T-Top covers the steering console and integrates a pop-up bimini to shade the dinner table that can accommodates up to 6 guests.

Interiors are spacious and bright, ceilings are high and cabins are wide, elegantly furnished and decorated with fine wood details.
