Pardo 38 Performance Review

Pardo 38 Performance Review

The Pardo 38 is the only Pardo you can option with outboards.

The Pardo 38 with triple 300hp outboards gets up to planning speeds 17-19kts very quickly, with not a lot of trim needed, only when the boat reaches planning speeds to optimise the hull and angle to the propellors. This Pardo 38 will do just over 40kts with these engines.

Axopar 37 Owner Story

Axopar 37 Owner Story

“I love the speed, the stability and, being an accountant, the fuel economy. I have zipped all over Pittwater at 30 knots sipping only 80 litres an hour. Show me another 37 ft boat that gets anywhere near that!!!

I have always loved the styling on the Axopar range, but it really was the new hull design on the 37 revolution that had me push the buy button,” said Andrew.
