Endurance 60 Yacht
4 mins read

The Endurance 60 is a daring yacht capable of surprising everyone, even the demanding public at the Cannes Yachting Festival; not surprisingly, her futuristic lines fully convinced the jury of the World Yacht Trophies 2021, which rightly awarded her the “World Best Innovation” title. The Endurance 60 had Pardo Endurance 60 her world premiere on the quays of La Croisette and was presented with a preponderance of harmonious lines that elude the boat’s bow, stretching it outwards, albeit with a slight bend visible only in the central part of the yacht. It was the “minimal” design that impressed the jury. And indeed it is. Because that the market is looking for can be found on the Endurance 60, where the trendy is totally renewed, offering new geometries that almost belong to another dimension.

Just think of the name of this yacht: “Endurance 60”. It evokes NASA’s Martian explorers. And rightly so. The flybridge also emulates a “hat” on the deckhouse, perhaps inspired by a more automotive design. It is sporty yet futuristic and, above all, very nautical. Moreover, the flybridge is crowned by a structural decoration made up of polarised glass windows at the bow, which are purposely inserted into a round steel handrail that borders the flybridge itself for greater safety.

Endurance 60: the main deck of an amazing yacht

main deck As we were saying, the deckhouse is a superstructure in the form of a rectangular parallelepiped, whose lines, however, move sinuously, emulating those of a trawler. It is all made up of vertical windows that rise above the main deck, and there is practically no composite. The bow is then poured into a play of opposites with the reverse cockpit windows, tilted at 35 degrees as on commercial ships, so the dashboard is very close to the bridge and the light doesn’t bother you while sailing.

What’s more, the beauty of Endurance 60 is instantaneous, but it changes in a metamorphosis depending on the setting. This is the case, for example, when the aft terraces open up at achor, turning the cockpit into an open space worthy of a contemporary theathre play. The teak-covered bulwarks create the perfect setting for nautical gaiety to be shared with friends. The boat’s profiles each have two windowed moustaches: a shorter one in the central area of the yacht with two portholes that provide light on the lower deck, and another one extending towards the bowh, this time with three portholes that can be used to ventilate the cabin facing the sea.

All this occupies a length of 18 meters, with a displacement of around 30 tons. Power comes from twin Volvo IPS 700 engines, which can deliver a top speed of 25 knots. There’s only one fertile mind behind this umpteenth advancement in Italian yachting: Davide Leone, the naval architect behind the Cantiere del Pardo project, while Nauta Design is responsible, as always, for the beautiful interiors. We’ve tested the Endurance 60 at sea and we’ll tell you all about it soon, but we can’t anticipate everything.
