Argo Yachting to market the Italian-designed Pardo range in Britain

Italy’s Cantiere del Pardo has chosen Argo Yachting to exclusively distribute its Pardo range of Italian-designed yachts in the UK.

Pardo’s walkaround models stretch from 38ft-60ft and include the Pardo 38, Pardo 43 and Pardo 50. The range was recently complemented by the Pardo GT52 and the Endurance 60, part of the new Endurance line launched last year.

The Pardo E60 (Endurance) offers maximum space and comfort for longer cruises. Onboard space has also been maximised with the addition of a flybridge – a first for Pardo, whilst continuing to provide their signature walkaround design.

The generous dimensions of the E60 allow for a full-beam owner’s cabin, a guest cabin forward with either a double or twin bed, a twin cabin to port, plus a two-berth crew cabin accessed via a transom door. Standard engines are 2 x Volvo IPS 700 and optional Volvo IPS 800.

The GT52 bridges the gap between the walkaround models and the Endurance range, providing more interior accommodation. An enclosed main deck provides shelter from the elements with a sliding roof and either a galley up or down option, with plenty of wrap-around seating. The cockpit sunpad converts to a generous u-shaped dining area.

The lower accommodation has an owner’s double cabin ensuite, a twin cabin and a single cabin. Standard engines are 2 x Volvo IPS 650 with the option to upgrade to Volvo IPS 700 or 800.

“Pardo Yachts exudes brand synergies with that of Argo Yachting’s range of yachts; impeccable design, meticulous craftsmanship, innovation, comfort and performance,” says Max Whale, CEO at Argo Yachting. “Argo Yachting benefits from over 50 years of experience and knowledge in the UK and European market, we are delighted to bring Pardo into our portfolio.”

Pardo joins Saxdor and Chris-Craft within the Argo Yachting portfolio of new boat brands.
