With the GT52, Pardo Yachts Introduces A New Range Of BoatsGalley-up or galley-down layouts are a
There is something exciting coming from Pardo Yachts: a new range of yachts.
As the first boat in the Pardo GT series, the GT52 sits between the Endurance and Walkaround ranges. There are five other boats in the GT52 lineup, ranging in size from 36 to 75 feet. The GT52 was introduced by Pardo in April in St-Tropez, French Riviera. We’re eagerly awaiting information about a U.S. debut date.
A galley-up or galley-down layout is available for the GT52. On both sofas, a wooden table and a portside sofa provide guests with a place to eat and socialize. An aft-facing settee flanks the salon door in the cockpit, which is accessed through a centerline door.
Located to starboard, the galley is directly across from the furnishings on the portside. Two burners and a stainless steel sink are included. With the galley located centrally, hosts can serve all areas of the boat.
At the forward end of the galley is the helm station, which seats two people comfortably. Taking the adjacent stairs belowdecks, owners can choose between a third stateroom with bunk berths and an L-shaped sofa with a TV, or a lounge.
A galley-down design, part of GT52's global debut, sees the galley on the main deck replaced by an L-shaped sofa that lifts on struts to serve as the helm. As a result of the galley's location belowdecks, it is afforded a significantly larger counter space than in the galley-up configuration. U-shaped, it wraps around from the portside base of the stairs to the forepeak door of the master stateroom.
Depending on whether owners choose the galley-up setup, the boat can accommodate four or six people. To port is the king-size berth in the forepeak master. Toward the starboard side of the room is a sofa that can comfortably accommodate two people. A head and shower are located in the bow of the boat. Located amidships is a twin-berth guest stateroom with an en suite head that also serves as the day head. To port and amidships, the GT52 has a single crew cabin.
A Volvo Penta IPS650 diesel engine is standard, but IPS700 or 800 diesel engines are also available. It was not possible to obtain information about the Pardo GT52's projected performance at press time.
