The Pardo GT 52 will be positioned between the Walkaround and the Endurance range, appealing to a segment of owners looking for even more space and comfort volumes than the current walkaround models – but without sacrificing performance.

For Eyachts Managing Director Peter Hrones, the Pardo GT 52 is “one of the most exciting new models to enter our range. We have a close relationship with the factory at Cantiere del Pardo and we have been keeping the GT range a secret since our partnership began in early 2020. When I saw the official plans, I was glad to see they chose vertical windows, a suggestion I made because it won’t be as hot in our climates, you get the feeling of more interior space when at the wheel and a more distinctive look. What I really love about the GT52 is that the cockpit is huge and with the free-flowing saloon you end up with approximately 30 feet of one-level entertaining space. The GT range will be ground-breaking for Australia and New Zealand, the cabin is ideal for our weather conditions and the Italian styling and design choices are sure to capture the hearts of our local boaties. We cannot wait to bring this elegant and sophisticated model downunder.”


The new 52-footer’s central element to its design is based around the continuity between the interior and exterior spaces, as already seen on board the Endurance 60: side stern windows which rise upwards, stern doors which can be opened completely and the roof in semi-open mode. A complete reorganization of the spaces also offers a wider usability for the cockpit, with a dining area and extended sunbathing areas, as well as a more generous and flexible ‘liveability’ below deck. This is due to two optional interior layouts (galley up or galley down) each of which transforms the perception of space, enhancing the time spent on board especially during long distance cruising.


Clean, unmistakable hull lines, with the inverted bow typical of the Pardo Yachts family, with an exterior layout that emphasises the relaxation areas. On the GT 52, three people can be comfortably accommodated on the bow sundeck, and another eight can be accommodated in the stern area, seated around the dining table, which can be transformed into a second sundeck. Also in the stern area, the bridge is 60 cm longer than that of the Pardo 50, allowing the owner to place, lower and recover the tender or the jet ski due to the practical electric system. The hull of the Pardo GT 52 is an evolution of that found on the Pardo 50, which also shares the Volvo Penta IPS motorization (2×650 in the standard version, or 2×700/800 as optional). Apart from this choice, the two models have substantial differences in terms of internal volume, weight distribution and centre of gravity. The GT 52 has the engines displaced further towards the stern to give more space to the cabin plan: the engine room and the main weights have been completely revised to balance the boat in the best possible way, despite the modifications made. The hydrodynamics have been revised, taking into account the greater weight created by the cabin plan – clearly wider – and by the closed superstructure, as well as by the more important interior furnishings compared to the Pardo 50.


The interiors of the GT52, as on every Pardo yacht, are designed to provide an experience between comfort, functionality and to provide the ability to travel long distances with guests on board. Every square inch has been designed with the idea of creating living spaces that are typical of a luxury apartment – starting from the master cabin with increased volume and rotated with the bedhead oriented on the side to ensure better circulation in the cabin, connected to a large bathroom with shower at the bow – followed by the VIP cabin with bathroom and the crew cabin. As already mentioned, the architecture of the spaces allows two layout options: galley up and galley down. With the first layout, it is possible to have a lounge area with TV or a third cabin with a bunk bed on the lower deck level, with the second one, the square of the dinette is even bigger and the kitchen below deck is even better equipped for use even in non-summer weather conditions.


The innovative solutions of the GT 52 are evident, as Massimo Gino of Nauta Design explains: “The Pardo 52 GT represents the cross-over between a walkaround and a classic cabin cruiser. The lounge on the main deck is protected by the superstructure and can be completely opened towards the stern, the door of the lounge and the two aft windows make it possible to put the latter in direct connection with the large and functional cockpit, or to separate the lounge from the outside by creating an internal area that can be conditioned or heated depending on the conditions. In the top there is a large sliding canopy to always have optimal ventilation. The sidewalks go up to the deck level to create a very large flush area for relaxation in the bow, with a large sundeck in the middle of the deckhouse. Due to the flush deck, important volumes are gained in the bow interiors: the master area benefits enormously from these volumes with a comfort that is rarely found on boats of this size.”
