A first glimpse of the Endurance 60 by Pardo Yachts

Pardo Yachts, following the great success of their walkaround line featuring the Pardo 38, 43 and 50, have given the world a preview of the brand-new Endurance 60.

Cantieri Mostes’ new Awake – where motor meets sail

Cantieri Mostes’ new Awake – where motor meets sail

Built by Cantieri Mostes in Genoa and designed by yacht designer Paolo Cori, the Awake, a sloop measuring 22.16 metres in length, aims to combine the pleasures of fast sailing with the comforts of a motor yacht. Featuring an overall sail surface reaching almost 200 square metres, along with an impressive 340 Hp with double Stern drive, the stern thrusters of which rise up into the hull when unused in order to reduce water resistance, the Awake provides a deck inspired by the highest standards of comfort, with a double cockpit, and safety, featuring a raised gunwale. As for interiors, the owner’s cabin and common areas, like the dining and kitchen areas, are located on the same level as the cockpit, offering the sensation of, as Cantieri Mostes defines it, living “at sea level”. A quality that aligns perfectly with the highest levels of performance. The new design from Cantieri
