The success of the Pardo Yachts walkaround range continues with the all-new Endurance 60
The wait os over: the Pardo Endurance 60 finally hits the water. After the
launch in Marina di Ravenna and the initial miles at sea while performing a thorough 12-hour navigation test, the new 60-foot model (which will be introduced to the public and the international press at the Cannes Yachting Festival from 7 to 12 September 2021) has officially joined the Pardo Yachts fleet.
After the success of the walkaround range (Pardo 38, 43 and 50) with more than 200 units sold in just three years, Pardo Endurance 60 will provide the owner with an even more open-air lifestyle hub, both when outings are limited to a few hours/a weekend and for long-range navigation.
This last choice highlights the design and construction qualities of a yacht capable of autonomously navigating even for prolonged periods, which really boosts the appreciated family feeling of the current Pardo Yachts line.
Furthermore, the Endurance 60 fully embraces the night & day cruiser philosophy: excellent soundproofing guarantees silent navigation and low consumption even at night.
Continuity between interiors and exteriors during the sunny hours of the day is ensured by the large side windows of the main deck which, when open, create a continuous space between the bar and the dinette with the external aft table.
As for the main deck, the utmost importance has been given to the livability and usability of the spaces: one of the main strengths of the Endurance 60 is, in fact, the aft outdoor area where two side folding terraces create a 41-square-meter surface (including the large swim platform) for complete relaxation.
Moreover, this area guarantees a direct contact with the sea, creating a true floating terrace.
The external aft area houses a dining area with table and seating, protected from the sun by an electrically-operated bimini top which guarantees total safety during navigation even when open.
The stern area is completed by a 8-square-meter platform 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 side-decks which lead 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.
The flybridge zone is a true innovation 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 lightweight and with a moderate height: this allows to keep the barycenter of the boat low, to the full advantage of navigation and overall aesthetics.
Designed to fully enjoy life “en plein air”, the fly can be furnished with sofa and sundeck with all cushions recessed flush. It is also possible to have an additional helm statiom with negative windshiled and refrigerator cabinet.
The interiors are a clear result of Cantiere del Pardo‘s 50 years of experience in shipbuilding: this know-how is clearly recognized when observing how the volumes of the spaces are optimally exploited.
The galley and the bar are positioned 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 indoor helm station is characterized by a lateral door on the starboard side which allows the captain 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 galley, positioned at the entrance and therefore convenient to reach the cockpit. The dining zone and the lounge area are positioned more towards the bow on a raised zone that provides an exceptional scenic view.
As for the lower deck, lines propose 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 brightness and freshness.
The sleeping zone consists of three cabins and three heads. Maximum livability is guaranteed.
Positioned amidships, the master cabin features a generous size because it exploits the maximum beam of the boat: the choice of this position is not random 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.
The VIP cabin, positioned at the bow with en-suite head, is instead available in a double version: with twin or double bed, depending on the owner’s needs.
The third cabin has two twin generous sized beds and en-suite head. Interesting is also the reserved position of the crew cabin, positioned under the sundeck area at the stern, equipped with two beds and toilet area and with direct access to the engine room.
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 entirely made by the Cantiere del Pardo’s in-house carpentry department.
The initial miles at sea – 12 hours of navigation to test the manoeuvrability and usability features of the boat – provided exceptional feedback. The new Pardo Endurance 60 astonishes with the perfect balance between lounging and relaxation areas, heads and cabins.
The designed structural flexibility, e.g. the collapsible windows and walls, is even more to be appreciated: the absolute freedom to experience the sea with no barrier to hinder the enthralling maritime panorama.
On both the deck and the flybridge, all the sundecks can be accessed and used with ease, enjoying safe circulation even when cruising at high speed.
Equally surprising was the silent and vibration-free operation in spite of the generator running throughout the whole test.
Fuel efficiency is to be added to the excellent ergonomics of the helm station, the enhanced visibility of over 270 degrees, the high manoeuvrability of the boat and the low consumption of the Volvo IPS 800 engines: an average of 40 litres/hour on a range of approximately 700 miles was logged when cruising at night (displacement at 10 knots).
Gigi Servidati, Development Manager of the new Cantiere del Pardo models, has strongly wanted this challenge to be characterized by some essential elements.
” The Endurance 60 is a project in which the ability to navigate well in displacement and planing stands out – he explains – This is why we have thoroughly studied the hull lines using CFD analysis, making the most of the know-how that comes from almost 50 years of experience in shipbuilding.
Low consumption, controlled speed, silent and safe navigation to facilitate night cruising: all these characteristics make the E60 a project in which eco- sustainability also becomes a value to be preserved. All these features are held together by the elegant design and unmistakable style of every Pardo yacht”.
The new Pardo Endurance 30 required the maximum effort in terms of research, study and design from the Cantiere del Pardo Technical Office which worked in collaboration with Davide Leone on the naval architecture and hull lines, and with Nauta Design on the interior design part.
