Drawing inspiration from the stylistic features of its smaller sibling, the 60-foot Endurance, the new Endurance 72 boasts contemporary lines. Its exterior showcases aggressive angles, enhanced by the alternating arrangement of windows, lending a sense of lightness to its overall volume. Key features of the E72 include improved soundproofing, efficient fuel consumption, and user-friendly handling. More space, increased volume, and onboard comfort are immediately evident in the Endurance 72’s cockpit. Like most new models, the E72 focuses on integrating indoor and outdoor areas. The cockpit features two folding side terraces, expanding the living space by the sea to over 40 square meters.
This space connects to a generous swim platform that can be fully submerged. In the aft garage, boats of up to four meters in length can be transported and accommodated. The primary living area, almost entirely glazed and projecting towards the bow, encapsulates the design, recapturing the look of the smaller model and placing this 72-foot vessel in a completely recognizable segment. In terms of outdoor spaces, the deck design, naturally walkable, provides ample room for guests’ movement, offering up to three primary open areas to enjoy. Starting from the stern, we first encounter a water-level swim platform and immediately move to the cockpit area. Here, a large terrace extends towards the stern, and a communal seating area with a table is featured between this and the salon. The true gem, however, is the foldable side terraces, providing extra space throughout the area when not underway. From the cockpit, access to the Flybridge is granted—a spacious, open area of no less than 27 square meters, protected and shaded by a T-top with adjustable louvers, ideal for enjoyment in various conditions. Here, in addition to the helm, a whole section is composed of sofas, terraces, tables, and seating, offering everything necessary for a full-time sea experience. Finally, attention is also paid to comfort on the bow, featuring a lounge area with three sofas and a table. The foredeck additionally provides space for a small pool, which can also be configured as an alternative sunbathing spot.
The Endurance 72’s interior design employs gray walnut veneers with a matte finish, contrasting with wall panels on the lower deck, technical fabrics for the ceilings, white Corian countertops in the kitchen, and sandy-colored resin in the bathrooms. These finishes create a color palette that conveys tranquility and sophistication. Matte black finishes can be found on bathroom fixtures, door handles, and lighting elements.
Lighting design has been revamped through a combination of LED and pinpoint fixtures to achieve focused illumination where needed.
The standard layout includes a main deck with a kitchen, dining area, living room, and a side terrace. The entire area is connected to the helm station, offering 270-degree visibility. A central staircase on the boat leads to the day area and the VIP and owner’s suites, while a forward staircase directly accesses two cabins with en-suite bathrooms and twin beds. The kitchen is behind the main deck to serve the outdoor spaces easily. Opposite the kitchen, the dining area fully opens to the terrace through a side door to emphasize the connection between indoor and outdoor spaces.
Regarding power and performance, the Pardo Endurance 72 features an advanced and optimized displacement and planing hull for IPS propulsion. The “wave-piercing” hull features progressively reduced lifting angles along its length, providing increased dynamic stability when planning in rough seas. It is also aided by a relatively forward center of gravity, which helps reduce energy dissipated in the wake when navigating in displacement mode. There are three different engine options: the standard version offers two Volvo Penta D13 IPS 1050s, which can, optionally, be replaced by the IPS 1200 or IPS 1350. A hybrid engine is also among the options.
The E72 introduces a new concept called “eco speed.” With the D13 1350 engines, “eco speed” is achieved at around 12 knots. With a substantial 6,000-liter fuel tank and the 1350 propellers, the Endurance 72 consumes 80 liters per hour, providing a range of 72 hours or 900 nautical miles at 12 knots.
The Endurance 72 will become the flagship of the Endurance line and the second-largest model in the Pardo Yachts lineup, second only to the Pardo GT75.
