Being nominated alone means that the yacht is one of the most promising new innovations for the upcoming boating season 2021. The European Powerboat of the Year is the most thorough competition there is for production yachts. The criteria that the jury bases their evaluation on space between value for money, performance and innovation. The spirit is to award the models that carry on valuable features, regardless of the brand or the market diffusion.

AXOPAR 37 REVOLUTION
There had to have been some head-scratching when the Axopar team decided to create the 37 2.0. To say the original was successful is quite the understatement; it sold in its thousands, scooped up armfuls of awards and delighted pretty much every journo who had a go behind the wheel.
How on earth do you improve on that? Well Motorboat and Yachting certainly think they did…

The flagship of the classy Pardo range dreams of sun-drenched bays and warm evenings.
The 50 is the ultimate expression of what Pardo stands for, with the main deck that, purely from gazing over it, transports you to a sun-drenched anchorage and coaxes visions of lazing about in the sun and diving off its enormous bathing platform into the clear blue water.
The Sirena 88 boasts presence, volume and a master suite to die for.
Most boatyards have an urge to build ever-larger craft is often explained in economic terms, it is easier to make a profit on a big boat than a little one, there is also the holy grail aspect to consider – the conviction that the design of the next model up will have none of the drawbacks of the previous one. The Sirena 88 is unique from the smaller models in the range.
