Cannes Yachting Festival 2023
comes the first “game-changer” in the walkaround market: it is called Pardo 75 and will be the new flagship of the Italian shipyard’s famous walkaround range.
The new Pardo 75 (T-Top version)
A dream on the water. A walkaround with numbers bordering on those of a superyacht with world-class technological baggage. This is, in very short, the new Pardo 75. Pardo Yachts, since its entry into the motor market, seems determined to make history year after year. The recent acquisition of Cantiere del Pardo by the Calzedonia puts new resources at its disposal to continue growth, but already in the immediate term the brand seems projected upward: the newly unveiled Pardo 75 is the latest proof.
We had seen here the Pardo GT75, previewed last year, flagship of the yard’s GT range. Now it is the turn of a mega walkaround T-Top version. The team behind the project, Zuccheri Yacht Design for naval architecture and Nauta Design’s interiors and exteriors, are in the sign of continuity with the rest of the production.
Exterior and deck
Distinguishing this model is a uniquely styled T-top, made of carbon fiber, that protects the central lounge area, which in the standard “galley up” version is equipped with an outdoor galley (the only one on board) on the starboard broadside and a mobile bar aft of the wheelhouse. On deck we also find two other lounge/solarium areas, one in the bow and another in the stern.
The aft living area is positioned above a garage that can accommodate a 2.80-meter tender and toys, which can be easily launched via the swim platform, which doubles as a transformer by sliding into the water. Here the bulwarks can be folded down, which increases the available space on board by 5 square meters.
Both the forward and aft living areas can be covered by a bimini that provides protection for guests from the sun.
The standard “galley up” version, without an interior galley, allows for three cabins and three bathrooms on the lower deck. Aft is the full-width master cabin. Impressive space on board, with a canopy that reaches as high as 2.4 meters.
The shipyard then provided two optional versions: the first, still with an outdoor galley on the main deck, but accommodating a large salon, two cabins and three bathrooms on the lower deck; the second, with a galley on the lower deck, two cabins and three bathrooms.
The crew cabin for two is located in the forward section, or and has separate access to the deck for the benefit of privacy and is complete with private bath and shower.
Pardo 75: the motorization
The standard propulsion system includes three Volvo Penta D13 IPS 1050 engines (the owner can optionally request for three D13 IPS 1350s) capable of propelling the Pardo 75 up to a maximum speed of 35/36 knots, depending on the configuration (and weight) of the boat. Volvo’s IPS transmissions provide superior on-board comfort, ensuring low noise and vibration levels. The boat is prepared for conversion to hybrid-electric propulsion when it is released by the company.
The World Premiere of the Pardo 75 will be at Cannes 2025.
