Pardo shows Endurance

Italian yachtbuilder Pardo Yachts has previewed the second in its Endurance range, the 22-metre Endurance 72.

27 January 2023


Italian shipyard Cantiere del Pardo – the builder behind sailing yacht brand Grand Soleil and motor yacht brands Pardo Yachts and VanDutch – offered a worldwide preview of its all-new Pardo Endurance 72 during the 2023 edition of Boot Düsseldorf in Germany. The model, which has a hull optimised for IPS propulsion, is the second in the Endurance line-up, joining the Endurance 60.

The new 22-metre 72 follows the same philosophy as the 60, with a focus on long-distance cruising thanks to an eco-speed and performance-orientated design that doesn’t compromise on low fuel consumption. Further, the 72’s engine room has been designed to be ‘hybrid ready’, suggesting eco-conscious cruisers will have additional propulsion options in the future.

Pardo says the model has been conceived for long-range navigation, and that it has been developed to provide comfort and elegance on board, ease of use and reliability. The interior has been styled around comfort at both displacement and planing speeds, and the model features considered soundproofing for quiet night-time passage-making.


The hull design uses the concept of warping along the length of the hull, with the deadrise progressively flattening on the run aft. The hull shape was optimised for IPS propulsion in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis, as well as for manoeuvrability, comfort and reduced fuel consumption. Volvo Penta’s IPS also allows for dynamic positioning capability which makes for easy mooring even shorthanded.

The standard engine configuration will be for twin Volvo Penta D13 IPS 1050s, with 1200s or 1350s available as an option. The Endurance 72 also offers what the shipyard describes as the eco-speed – essentially, the optimum intersection between fuel consumption and comfort on board. For the Volvo Penta D13 1350 option, for example, this eco-speed is 12 knots, which gives consumption of 80 litres per hour for a 900 nautical mile range at 12 knots from the 6000-litre tanks.

Walkaround decks and distinctive bow lines are part of Pardo DNA, and the 72 also offers twin drop-down cockpit terraces for a total of 40 square metres of living space with a submersible swim platform. The garage can hold up to a 4-metre tender. Up top, a T-top with removable louvres offers shade to the 27-square-metre flybridge.

There are two interior options that differ through the location of the galley: a galley-up version offers four cabins with five heads below, while the galley-down version opens up the main deck living space while giving three cabins and four heads below.

The galley-down version actually employs an American-style country kitchen layout, with the galley in the bow area along with breakfast table.

The saloon seating area on both layouts is amidships, between the aft dining area (which opens not only onto the cockpit but also the large side terrace) and the internal helm. A stair down amidships leads to the owner and VIP double cabins, while a forward centreline stair leads to either the lower galley or to two twin cabins set port and starboard. There is also a crew cabin in the bows with twin bunks.

The lower-deck country kitchen came about through the yard’s collaboration with BurdissoCapponi Yachts & Design, which also bore fruit in terms of new styling and finishing options including elegant grey walnut veneers with a matt finish, wallpapered bulkheads on the lower deck, technical fabrics for the ceilings, white Corian for the galley worktops and sand-coloured resin in the bathrooms.

The first Endurance 72 is due for launch in the Spring of 2024; Pardo Yachts are available in Australia through Eyachts.
