It's not an uncommon thing to see a shipyard proclaim that they have revolutionized luxury cruising with a new design or integrated technology. It is quite an achievement, however, to actually do it and be globally recognized. Pardo Yachts is a relatively young brand that has produced 5 models now in less than 5 years and has sold more than 100 vessels in the walk-around range. The new Pardo E60, the new flagship model for the brand, is something entirely different for the esteemed Cantiere del Pardo shipyard which has been building boats for over 50 years.
This new design philosophy incorporates the same level of opulence and Italian style you would expect from the builders of Van Dutch Yachts and Grand Soleil. With the ability to run the E60 in displacement mode between 10 to 12 knots, you can enjoy trawler-like fuel efficiency and performance, while also have the ability to reach over 25 knots when desired. The Volvo IPS 700 (standard) or IPS 800 (optional) provide a reliable, quiet performance with reduced vibrations for a very enjoyable cruising experience. At the 10 knot mark, you can expect an average fuel consumption of 10 gallons per hour which gives the E60 a full range of 700 miles.
David Leone, a naval architect that had the opportunity to work on the E60 design had this to say about its performance, "what we designed is a hull optimized in all aspects for IPS transmission. The maximum beam of more than 16-feet allows (us) to exploit the width of the boat to achieve generous internal volumes and to have better performance when the boat planes at significant speeds." Furthermore, the Chief Engineer for Pardo, Vincenzo Candela commented on the future of electric engines on the E60, "The Endurance 60 is already prepared and optimized to welcome the future of new engines, such as the hybrid, to navigate in total silence to enter or exit ports or navigate in areas with restrictions." The future of luxury, eco-friendly cruising is near and Pardo will undoubtedly be an early adopter.
Watch the video below to see why the new Endurance 60 won for 'Best Innovation' at the World Yacht Trophies in 2021 and was nominated for the 2022 European Powerboat of the Year.

The Pardo Endurance 60 boasts much more than an athletic, efficient performance and extraordinarily shines in its exterior socializing areas. Most noticeable on the E60 when looking at its profile are the electrically-controlled fold-down terraces which create a wonderful patio at the water's edge. When deployed, the terraces provide 108 square feet of dedicated space to relax and unwind with a view. Like the Pardo 50, there is plenty of room to walk around and enjoy the foredeck sunpads or the aft cockpit dining area.
Through its open exterior spaces and thoughtfully created relaxation zones, the Endurance 60 shines bright as a luxury yacht despite the trawler-esque cruising properties. This hybrid design provides a complete experience through performance and enjoyment, particularly on the open flybridge. Sun worshippers will rejoice at the multitude of tanning opportunities, while also having the perfect watersports launch point in the hydraulic swim platform. The blonde teak on the deck accents the colors of furniture, with tones that accent the ocean around you. An electric bimini top can be extended over the cockpit, providing protection from the sun during al fresco dining and cocktails.
Also interesting to note, the flybridge helm station may also become a full sunbathing area complete with wetbar, should the owner choose to customize a new build in the manner.
Looking aft through the salon (below), it's easy to see the full main deck layout that has no steps or barriers, and harmoniously connects with the cockpit with the doors open. The large salon windows also open to fully provide an on-water experience. With the helm station side door also opened, the sea breeze is free to circulate through the interior. The helm door also gives the captain quick and easy access to the side deck and the aft joystick-controlled mooring station.
The interior of the E60 is warm and inviting, with plenty of open space for easy movement on board. The aft galley makes it easy to serve guests dining on the cockpit and is fully equipped to handle all of your needs on longer voyages. There is ample headroom, recessed lighting, an abundance of natural light from the windows, and a beautiful collection of furniture (customizable) that together create a wonderful ambiance that serious cruisers will find delightful. Farthest forward and starboard is the interior helm station for controlling this exceptional yacht. For owners without a captain, the E60 utilizes Volvo's Dynamic Positioning System for easy docking and maneuvering.
The lower deck of the Pardo E60 features two potential layouts, both with 3 cabins and 3 heads. The first layout option (seen below) features the master cabin midship with a queen-size berth in the forward VIP stateroom.
The second lower deck option allows the owner to incorporate twin bunks into the VIP to extend the sleeping capacity on board for guests. Both the master cabin and the VIP have en suite bathrooms, while the third bathroom also acts as a day head.
Immediately noticeable in the spacious master stateroom is the large hullside windows with portholes for ventilation below deck. The cabin designs are clean and neat, with decor that gives a feeling of openness. Unlike many other yachts, the lower deck accommodations exemplify living on the water and can act as a "home away from home" while traveling during your on-water vacation.
As with all Pardo Yachts, owners have an extraordinary level of customization options to make this vessel your own. Particularly with its objective of being a luxury long-distance cruising boat, the Pardo E60 perfectly blends the trawler, displacement yacht performance with Italian style and total comfort.
