Whether it’s an outing of just a few hours, a weekend trip or a long-range cruise over an extended period, the new Endurance 60 from the Pardo Yacht line displays its design and construction qualities, taking to the sea with long-range capabilities and offering three cabins and three bathrooms, included the owner’s. The yacht’s manoeuvrability and the practicality of all on-board spaces have been the object of special research by yard’s technical office, in collaboration with Davide Leone for naval architecture and hull lines and Nauta Design for the interiors.
No compromises were made in the hull’s structural quality or the development of its lines, the result of a meticulous analysis of computational fluid dynamics similar to those carried out on sail yachts. The result is a yacht that can sail well in displacement at 10-12 knots and 23-25 knots on the plane. High levels of soundproofing mean quiet sailing with low consumption even at night. The yacht is also configured for a hybrid motorisation option, aiming for the highest standards of safety and sustainability.
The great comfort and practicality of the spaces is one of the Endurance 60’s strengths – generous and fitted with quality furnishings, all the exterior and interior areas are inter-related through the flexibility of the structures, as windows and partitions can be lowered, enabling guests to enjoy the sea with no barrier to block the view.
The icing on the cake is the outdoor area aft where the drop-down gunwales create a 41 square metre area for relaxation, opening onto the surface of the water. The flybridge is also an innovative structure – of limited height, it enables the centre of gravity to be kept low, enhancing the yacht’s sea-holding performance and overall aesthetic appeal. Owners can choose the sofas, sunpads and soft furnishings required to make the most of open-air life.
Nauta Design worked on the basis of the interior layout provided by the yard to create a bright, fresh style matching white lacquered surfaces with blonde teak. Great care has been lavished on the owner’s cabin. Located amidships and taking advantage of the yacht’s full beam, it offers generous spaces and storage. The hull windows enable natural light to flood the interior.
The VIP cabin with private bathroom lies forward, and is available in two versions, double or twin. The third cabin has two roomy single beds and dedicated bathroom. Unusually, the twin-bed crew cabin is located below the aft sunpad, and provides direct access to the engine room.
The lounge boasts a fully-equipped kitchen at the entrance, conveniently situated to serve both the interior table and the cockpit table. The dining area and lounge are forward, on a raised area that provides a spectacular view.
Owners are given extensive opportunities for customisation, and can choose from a wide variety of materials, fabrics and colours. All the furniture, in the true Made in Italy style that is such a distinctive feature of all Pardo Yachts, are made entirely in the yard’s carpentry workshops, the hub of yacht building excellence for a yard that is known for the quality, solidity and finish of its woodwork and artisanal skills that have been handed down over the generations.
