Pardo 38 : the smallest model of the range is sexy and elegant
Officially unveiled at the Cannes Yachting Festival, the Pardo 38 is immediately distinguished by her elegance. The lines explicitly recall the design of her elder sisters that, even in this case, are extraordinarily attractive and well-proportioned.
Despite its size, the deck is still walk-around and provides easy movement on board. In order to best meet the owners’ needs, the shipyard makes available many engine packages.
The exteriors of the Pardo 38
Once climbed on board, the visitor immediately finds an extremely comfortable boat without the typical movement constraints that one might expect from a 38-footer. A clear example of this is offered by the astern seats that, elegantly refined, are certainly not less impressive, in terms of quality and dimensions, that those of the elder sister, the Pardo 43.
The seats can accommodate up to 6 passengers and are therefore perfect to have a meal with your family or friends also thanks to the presence of a sink and and induction hobs that, positioned just behind the steering console, complete this zone with additional comfort.
The bow section houses a comfortable and elegantly refined three-seater sun pad. The carbon fiber Hard Top covers the wheel house and extends up to the dining area. An electrically-operated bimini allows to further extend the cover and shade even the stern section of the boat.
Pardo 38 : the interiors
The interiors are amazing. Down the staircase, situated next to the steering console, there is a wide open space , whose interiors are surprisingly large for a 38-footer. This area is furnished with a king-sized double bed, a private bathroom with separate shower box and a double cabin in the stern.
Noteworthy is the solution used by Cantiere del Pardo which allows it to stand upright next to the two single beds, also in this area which, although positioned under the cockpit, enjoys excellent habitability.
The two portholes on the sides of the double bed allow excellent ventilation, especially when the boat is at anchor.
Considering the size, this boat offers space and solutions typical of boats of a longer length, so as to be valid also for medium and long-range cruising.
The standard version includes a Volvo V6 280HP engine but the owner can choose to install the new Volvo diesel D4 (2 x 300HP) or D6 (2 x 380HP or 2 x 440 HP) engines.
These new DPI engines include a new hydraulic clutch, the steer-by-wire connection, the Dynamic Position System and, of course, the famous Volvo joystick. This set of new technologies should make it possible to have a driving experience very similar to that of IPS engines, even if with sterndrives.
The Pardo 38 can even be fitted with outboards, which will certainly appeal to the American market.
The central part of the astern platform can, in fact, accommodate two or three outboard engines for a total power of 900HP.
Then new Pardo 38has kept her promises. Despite a length of just 12 meters, she replicates the same luxury and glamour level than her elder sister, the one that has quickly made them authentic design icons.
The quantity and quality of the solutions used on board make this boat perfect for many purposes, from simple daily trips to long summer cruises.
Far from being just a simple fast cruiser or design boat, the Pardo 38 completes the range with elegance, revealing herself as a complete functional boat able to amaze but also to adapt to the most varied owner’s needs.
