The German shipyard, through the Fjord brand, had sued Pardo Yachts in the Genoa court on charges that it had copied the Fjord 42, in some substantial details, in the making of the Pardo 43 (which was unexpectedly successful due to its innovative solutions). Pending trial, the sale of the boat built by the Emilian shipyard had been inhibited in Italy.

Now the two parties have announced that they have reached a satisfactory agreement-with immediate effect-on the conditions that the Pardo 43 must meet in order to be sold, marketed, manufactured, and promoted in Italy.

Meanwhile, Pardo Yachts presented the Park 43’s big brother, the 50-footer, at the Cannes Boat Show. We had already told you about it here.
