Something exciting is coming from Pardo Yachts: a new yacht introducing a new range.

The Pardo GT52 is the first boat in the GT range, which the Italian builder says is positioned between its Endurance and Walkaround ranges. The GT52  joins a lineup of five other boats, ranging from 36 feet to 75 feet length overall, across all ranges. Pardo introduced the GT52 in April in St-Tropez, French Riviera. We’re eagerly awaiting information about a U.S. debut date.

The GT52 can come with a galley-up or galley-down layout. In both, guests can enjoy meals and socialize at a portside sofa that has a wooden table. The cockpit, accessed through a centerline door, has more get-together real estate: Here, there’s a forward-facing, C-shaped sofa with a square dinette, and aft-facing settees that flank the salon door.

With the galley up, it’s to starboard and directly across from the portside furnishings. There’s a stainless-steel sink and a two-burner cooktop. One benefit of the centralized galley location is that it allows hosts to serve all areas of the boat.

Just forward of the galley is the helm station with seating for two. Follow the adjacent stairs belowdecks, and here, Pardo gives owners more options: either a third stateroom with bunk berths, or a lounge with an L-shaped sofa and a TV.

As for the galley-down format, which was part of the GT52’s global debut, the galley on the main deck is replaced by an L-shaped sofa that lifts on struts to create helm seating. Belowdecks, the galley is afforded significantly more countertop space than in the galley-up layout. It’s U-shaped and wraps around from the portside base of the stairs to the forepeak master stateroom door.

Accommodations are for four or six, depending on whether owners opt for a third stateroom for, say, grandchildren in the galley-up setup. The forepeak master has a king-size berth offset to port. To starboard is a sofa where two can sit cozily. The en suite head is in the bow. A twin-berth guest stateroom is amidships with an en suite head that also serves as the day head. The GT52 has a single crew cabin amidships and to port.

Standard power is twin Volvo Penta IPS650 diesels, and there are options for IPS700 or 800 diesels as well. At press time, the Pardo GT52’s projected performance information was unavailable.
