Cantiere del Pardo wants to consolidate its position in the powerboat market with the new Pardo GT 52, scheduled to make its international debut at the Düsseldorf Boat Show in 2022. Pardo Yachts builds on its walkaround and cruiser experience with a 16-metre crossover that combines maximum liveability on board with open boat exteriors.

Pardo GT52

In detail, the Pardo GT52 is an evolution of the Pardo 50, particularly in terms of internal volumes and therefore available space. Although they are “related”, these two yachts share profoundly different types of use. On the GT 52, three people can be seated on the bow sundeck, while another eight can be seated in the aft area at the dining table, which can double as a second sundeck. The aft area of the bridge is 60 cm longer, allowing the owner to stow, lower and retrieve the tender or jet ski via an electrical system. What they have in common, however, is the motorisation, given by two Volvo Penta IPS (2×650 in the standard version, or 2×700/800 as an optional extra).

Pardo GT52 – Why crossover?

“The Pardo 52 GT,” explains Massimo Gino of Nauta Design, “is the cross-over between a walkaround and a classic cabin cruiser. The saloon on the main deck is protected by the superstructure and can be fully opened towards the stern. The saloon door and the two aft windows make it possible to connect the latter directly with the large, functional cockpit, or to separate the saloon from the outside by creating an air-conditioned or heated interior area, depending on conditions”.

“There is a large sliding sunroof in the top,” continues Massimo Gino, “to ensure optimum ventilation at all times. The side decks go up to deck level to create a very large flush relaxation area in the bow, with a large sunpad amidships. Thanks to the flush deck, the bow interiors gain significant volumes: the owner’s area benefits enormously from these volumes with a comfort that is rarely found on yachts of this size”.

Below deck there is a rotated master cabin with the head of the bed facing the side, connected to a large head with shower in the bow. There is also a VIP cabin with bathroom and a crew cabin. The architecture of the spaces allows the option of two layouts: galley up and galley down. With the first, it is possible to have a lounge area with TV or a third cabin with a bunk bed on the lower deck level. With the second, the dinette square is larger and the galley below deck is better equipped for use in non-summer weather conditions.
