Elegance, performance, comfort. But above all, unmistakable design and a concern for the environment. These are the assets of the yachts from Cantiere del Pardo, a shipyard that for 50 years has been synonymous with experience and innovation. Pardo Yachts, is one of the three brands of the Forlì shipyard (together with Grand Soleil, in the sailing craft, and VanDutch, a prestigious brand acquired last year). Since 2016 it has distinguished itself by the production of walkaround motor boats, craft with great onboard livability particularly appreciated by owners who are looking for even more direct contact with the sea. Endurance 60 is the latest to be launched: with inverted bow, an iconic and intriguing design aligned with the family feeling of the shipyard. The project was developed entirely within Cantiere del Pardo; the naval architecture was entrusted to Davide Leone while the Milanese studio Nauta Design curated the interior design.
Endurance 60 is impressive at first glance for the livability of all areas on board with a perfect balance in the shared areas. The heart of the project is the external area aft. The spaces in the cockpit and those next to the deckhouse expand through the sides that can be opened out to create an incomparable terrace of 41 square meters suspended over the water. The flexibility of the structures, such as the windows that open and the collapsible terraces, is evident everywhere and creates a real sense of being able to experience the sea without barriers. This is true of the lounge on the main deck where the visual connection with the sea is continuous and offers magnificent views even to those inside. At the stern the sliding glass door draws an invisible boundary between the external and internal spaces.
“The Endurance 60 project marks the start of our collaboration with Cantiere del Pardo also for motor yachts,” says Massimo Gino, co-founder with Mario Pedol of Nauta Design (the outfit has been designing the Grand Soleil sailboats for some time, ed.). “We worked on the layout defined by the shipyard, creating a fresh and bright interior style, pairing white lacquers with blond teak.” Excellent interiors with innovative solutions will also be created by the Milanese studio on the brand new GT 52, to be presented in 2022 at the Dusseldorf Boat Show.
A novelty aimed at a segment of owners looking for even more livable and comfortable volumes, compared to the current walkaround models, but without sacrificing performance. The aft side windows rise upwards, with fully opening aft door and semi-open roof. A complete reorganization of the spaces that offers a wider usability of the cockpit, with a dining area and extended sunbathing spaces. And a more generous and flexible habitability even below deck. In short, a combination of space, brightness, elegance and comfort.
