The first of Pardo’s new GT range, with a 75-footer due next year, this GT52 sits between the original and hugely popular open-deck Walkaround models (P38, P43 and P50) and the cruiser-style Endurance flybridge. E60 and upcoming E70.
The GT52 has essentially the same protective hull as Pardon’s P50 Walkaround, but with the addition of a hydraulically lowering swim platform aft, bringing the overall length to just over 54 feet. The platform is the perfect place to carry and launch a jet or jet ski, or to launch a budding Jacques Cousteau.
“We think the GT52 is perfect for blending the inside with the outside. Being on board feels like being in an outdoor loft facing the sea.
Versatile “crossover” The versatility of the Pardo GT52’s interior design is available in two versions, with the kitchen moving up and down to change the perception of space.
The Pardo GT52 maximizes dimensions and configuration flexibility, offering many combinations for indoor and outdoor spaces that can be adapted to the needs of the owner. The main concept of the series is to ensure continuous communication between indoor and outdoor spaces; the open parts of the main deck, such as the rear door, semi-open roof, and sliding doors to both side corridors and side windows, allow a continuous dialogue powerful performance and undeniable personality
The Marvelous Design
Designed by Zuccheri Yachts Design, the water lines of the Pardo GT 52 speak of the family atmosphere of the Cantiere del Pardo brand, which relied on the work of Nauta Design for interior and exterior design: the hull, with its elegant design and big personality, the upside-down bow, and constant attention to maximize outdoor living spaces. The new 75-foot truck is powered by a variety of engines.
Different trims available, all part of the Volvo Penta IPS series, for which the hull has been optimized: the standard version has 2 x Volvo IPS 650. The choice of the Volvo Penta IPS propulsion system shows that attention has been paid to fuel consumption and driving comfort, which have always been two of the main focuses of the Pardo Yachts range; in addition, the engine compartment of the GT52 is actually already designed to receive a Volvo hybrid engine upgrade, a solution that will soon ensure maximum performance with little impact on the marine environment.
The Pardo has sailboat-style poles with ropes. But they look weak and take away from the elegant lines of the boat.
The base GT52 engine comes with a pair of Volvo Penta IPS 650 5.5-liter 6-cylinder turbodiesels, each producing around 80 horsepower. These can take the GT to a top speed of around 35 mph and 28 mph. Alternatives are the more powerful 550 hp IPS700 or the 600 hp IPS800.
What sets this new GT52 apart from the competition—and justifies the more than $2 million sticker price—is the quality, craftsmanship, and attention to detail that can be seen throughout the yacht.
Over the past five years, Cantiere del Pardo has built more than 500 Pardo boats and plans to expand its shipyard in Forli, Italy, on the Adriatic coast, to increase production of Pardo, VanDutch, and Grand Soleil sailboats by 200 per year. about 250 a year.
