The Pardo GT65, the Grand Soleil 60 Long Cruise and the Grand Soleil Blue. These are the three new models Cantiere del Pardo is presenting at Boot, which opened on Saturday 20th January in Düsseldorf, and which will be the stars of the coming seasons.
The Pardo GT65, designed by Zuccheri Yacht Design and Nauta Design, stands between the GT52 and the flagship GT75, due to be launched this year, and is the third model in the GT crossover range. Among the many new features are the retractable garage for a 3-metre tender and the interior layout with two guest cabins and the owner’s cabin in the bow with the double bed arranged transversely.
The Grand Soleil 60 Long Cruise, designed by Matteo Polli and Nauta Design, is aimed at owners seeking the best on-board experience at the right price. Key features include the deck layout without steps, the new cockpit design and the rigging layout which makes sailing easier for a smaller crew, while below deck the master cabin offers a French-style bed, a rare feature for an 18-metre yacht.
The Grand Soleil Blue, designed by Matteo Polli and Nauta Design, is inspired entirely by sustainability, from the construction using thermoplastic resin that allows for effective end-of-life disposal, to the electric auxiliary propulsion, the sails in thermoplastic materials, and the hydro-generators that together with solar panels power a bank of lithium batteries.
