Pardo 38 Performance Review
The Pardo 38 Performance Review is here!
Here are the highlights from Joe Fox…
The Pardo 38 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.
The zip wake also helps to balance the boat, especially in the turns, it is a big boat. It also helps to keep the boat balanced when in a straight line through surface chop.
Offshore, even in not ideal conditions the Pardo 38 rides incredibly well. Cruising offshore we were doing about 20-23kts and that was very comfortable, we weren’t slamming.
All in all a really responsive drive at low speed and high, you generally feel like you are in a lot of control. I think it is a real winner.

Andrew, was looking for “the perfect boat for entertaining family and friends on Sydney Harbour. A boat that was beautifully designed and constructed and at the same time very simple to operate… I love the elegant design of the boat and the quality of the build. It looks stunning.”

If you are looking for luxury, style and Italian flair this could be your boat. This walkaround 38 footer really packs a punch. The functional deck layout is perfect for entertaining and the class-leading interior is exactly what you need for overnighters with the family.
I have never seen two humans with wider smiles than John and Deans after their trip from Pittwater to Sydney Harbour on the BRABUS Shadow 900 XC, reaching astonishing speeds of 56kts offshore!
