The Pardo 38 is an impressive vessel that offers a wide range of comfort and functionality for its passengers. In particular, the boat’s deck is equipped with a spacious and well-equipped living area at the stern, which can be converted into a large sunbathing area to enjoy the sun and the surrounding scenery. The presence of a wet bar adds further convenience and practicality to the living area.

The boat’s helm station is protected by a large T-Top that shades everything. The presence of the T-Top means that the boat can be used in any weather conditions, protecting the helmsman and navigation instruments from rain, wind, and sun.

At the bow of the boat, there is a second sunbathing area, perfect for relaxing and enjoying the sea breeze while navigating. Thanks to the spaciousness of the deck, passengers can easily move from bow to stern without encountering any obstacles. This is particularly important during mooring maneuvers when freedom of movement on board is necessary.
