North Pacific 39' Pilothouse
Proven Quality; Classic Pilothouse Design
The North Pacific 39’ Pilothouse has many of the same desirable features as the larger models including a spacious, full beam salon, excellent pilothouse visibility and the same proven construction standards. A low maintenance exterior and equipment that is easily accessed throughout means you’ll have more time to enjoy yourself and spend less time on maintenance.
The NP39 makes an excellent long-range trawler for those who enjoy the occasional guests but prefer some of the advantages a smaller vessel offers. Designed with an open concept, the NP39 has open space between the salon and pilothouse, giving it a very spacious feel. This combined with the inviting and beautifully finished teak interior will keep you comfortable wherever your cruising adventures may take you. On top of this the NP39 cruises economically at 7- 9.5 knots and its low profile combined with its semi-displacement hull provide a solid platform in rough seas giving you the confidence to make your cruising dreams a reality.

Exterior & Interior Gallery
Built solid; Low Maintenance
Hull & Superstructure:
The North Pacific 39’ Pilothouse has a more classic pilothouse look with forward rake windows. There is no wood on the outside of the NP39, only stainless steel and fiberglass; considerably lessening maintenance.
The design of the hull is very similar to that of the proven NP43, with hard chines to provide stability. The design gives economy at low-end speeds while allowing for higher top end speeds when necessary. The deep keel means the NP39 tracks well even in choppy conditions, but a large barn door style rudder means you have good control at any speed. The planked look embedded in the fiberglass adds to the character and classic look.
The hand-laid fiberglass hull is both very strong and heavy, which adds to the stability. A vinyl ester resin is used in the outer two layers of the hull to prevent blistering. Below the waterline is additional protection in the form of an epoxy barrier. The stringers are made on a separate mold and then glassed into the hull.
The superstructure is made of fiberglass and cored mostly with a lightweight synthetic honeycomb material which helps to keep the center of gravity low. There are squares of resin soaked, marine grade plywood in areas that require more strength (where the upper helm seat is bolted for example).
Access to the upper deck of the North Pacific 39’ is up the stairs on both sides of the pilothouse, or up the ladder from the cockpit. Steps on the outside of the pilothouse to the upper deck mean that you can safely access the bow from the stern without walking through the cabin. The upper deck is spacious, providing a large area with room to spare for deck furniture, or a 300-pound (up to) 10’ RIB dinghy. An optional pipe davit or low profile hydraulic davit is also available. On the starboard side is an L-shaped seating area and on the port side is a bench seat. All seating on the flybridge has storage under the seats. A single or optional dual helm seat is forward of this area. A large raised dash allows plenty of space for all the standard controls as well as any other instrumentation you may choose to add, while a folding radar arch is standard on the NP39.
The foredeck is accessed through both the pilothouse and the upper deck. It is protected from the water by high freeboard and heavy-duty 1 ¼" stainless steel handrails. All railings and other stainless equipment are # 316 stainless steel. The railings are through bolted into aluminum backing plates that are laid into the fiberglass. Courtesy lights around the foredeck light up the non-skid fiberglass surface, making walking around, even on a rough night, easier. At the bow is a Maxwell HRC10 windlass with 1500 lbs. of lifting capacity, a 45 pound anchor with 280 feet of 5/16” galvanized chain. The split chain locker allows for chain storage on one side, with space for fender and line storage on the other.
At the stern of the NP39 is a fully covered cockpit, which many choose to enclose as another room and heat. The cockpit provides a good area for storage, fishing or enjoying fresh air when it’s raining. There is a bulwark door on the starboard side as well as a transom door on the aft wall to access the cockpit.
The swim platform on the 39’ Pilothouse is 46” deep. This makes getting on and off easy, as well as making a great place to enjoy a nice evening just inches above the water.
Spacious Open Layout; Warm Teak Finish
North Pacific teak interiors are finished to world-class standards including the finest fittings and finishes. We’ve spent years and have hired experts to train our staff in the techniques that we use today to attain the level of finish that we expect.
Hand crafted teak paneled walls, drawers and book-matched cabinetry are the standard throughout, as well as real teak and holly floors. Routed and steam bent trim (no joints) add a touch of luxury while not going too far.
The interior of the North Pacific 39’ Pilothouse is well lit throughout, giving the teak a warm glow. The combination of good lighting and teak gives North Pacific interiors a comfortable feel in any weather, allowing you to feel right at home on the water.
Salon & Galley:
With a minimum of 6’8” headroom and open space between the top of the salon cabinetry and pilothouse, the North Pacific 39’ Pilothouse has a very spacious feel.
A large settee atop two cabinets on the starboard side easily converts into a double bed. The table (designed by a current owner) folds into a small area, making getting in and out of the settee area easy and also making a nice coffee table. When serving dinner, the table can be folded out to accommodate up to six.
Two hatches on the salon floor open for access to the fuel/water tanks and shaft seal. Between those tanks is space measuring 24” by 8’ long; an excellent area for storing wares for the longest cruising adventures. Other storage in the salon area includes two drawers, a pantry cabinet and a cabinet on the starboard side that can be used for storage or to accommodate a washer/dryer.
The galley is along the port wall of the NP39 salon. Depending on what you choose, you can have up to 8 drawers and 3 cabinets. You can choose between a double or single sink, as well as many other choices in either Staron or granite countertop materials. A NovaKool RFU 9000 9 cu. ft. fridge/freezer is standard equipment. Equipped with a Seaward glass cooktop/oven (propane also available), a microwave shelf and plenty of room for other appliances and food prep, the galley rivals that of much larger vessels.
The pilothouse provides the captain and crew with excellent 360-degree visibility. An adjustable and reclining captain’s seat in front of a teak steering wheel and raised dash makes an excellent place to pilot the NP39. The helm seat is positioned on the starboard side of the vessel next to a door, making docking easy. A 5’ bench seat and hinged table for crew helps make long range cruising an enjoyable experience for everyone. The bench seat also easily converts to a single sleeping berth by extending 2’ in length.
Sliding doors on both sides of the pilothouse make access to the bow, flybridge and raised walk around easy.
Standard equipment in the pilothouse includes a single lever electronic throttle/shift, a windlass control, bow thruster controls, horn switch, windshield wipers/washers (x3 each) and engine gauges including fuel flow and totalizer.
Head and Shower Stall:
Across from the head, there are two cabinets and a shelf on which makes a great space to store towels and linens. The head is well lit and is built with a granite or staron counter, white ceramic sink and single handle faucet. Three mirrors near the sink make the head feel spacious with one doubling as a storage cabinet. Most importantly, the head is equipped with a reliable fresh water Tecma toilet.
An adjoining separate shower stall with a bi-fold glass door is large and comfortable to shower in.
The forward master stateroom is spacious and comfortable, featuring a large island V bed with steps on both sides. Underneath the mattress is a large storage area that can be accessed by lifting the mattress with the help of gas assist struts. Two long drawers and two hanging lockers as well as cabinets along both sides of the bed provide plenty of storage space. The stateroom is also equipped with two opening, screened, portholes and an opening, screened, Lewmar hatch above the bed.
Quality Equipment; Easily Accessed
All North Pacific Yachts are designed so that all equipment, wiring and plumbing is easy to access. There are numerous hatches throughout the yachts; headliners are attached with Velcro and screw caps are used to make removal of teak wiring chases easier. In order to ensure accessibility throughout the interior, the NP39 is built and varnished before most the wiring and equipment is installed.
All floors in the North Pacific 39’ are held up by an interlocking aluminum grid. Unlike wood, this grid will never sag over time and won’t swell, meaning hatches are easily removable.
Navigational electronics are not included in the base price of North Pacific Yachts. However, we can install any Raymarine or Garmin equipment during construction.
The North Pacific 39’ is powered by a single 250 hp QSB6.7L Cummins diesel, which pushes the yacht along at up to 10 knots with a 9.5 knots cruise speed. At 7 knots, the NP39 burns approximately 2 gallons per hour, while burning approximately 6.5 gallons per hour at 9 knots. With the single engine configuration, the propeller, shaft and rudder are fully protected, taking a lot of the worry out of watching for logs while cruising the Pacific Northwest. Standard equipment on the North Pacific 39’ Pilothouse includes a Vetus 75KGF bow thruster, which gives you the maneuverability to make docking in any slip quite easy. A stern thruster is optional for those who like the maneuverability of twins but the economy of a single engine. However, a stern thruster is not necessary because the NP39 is equipped with a large rudder that gives instant feedback.
The North Pacific 39’ Pilothouse was designed so that accessing any wire (or installing new wires or equipment) is quick and easy. The Blue Sea, AC and DC electrical panels, are located near the helm and are hinged, making access to the back of the panels easy. Wiring is tinned copper and is both labeled and numbered. A 160 amp alternator is standard on the NP39, as well as a quiet Northern Lights generator. A Magnum 2800 W inverter/battery charger can provide enough pure sine wave AC power to run most of the 110V electrical equipment - including microwaves, coffee makers and toaster ovens. The high output inverter/charger means that the four 12V/220 amp AGM batteries are charged at the optimum rate while connected to AC power. AGM batteries are a recent upgrade that charge significantly faster than regular lead/acid batteries and hold charges considerably longer.
The engine room in the North Pacific 39’ is easily accessible by lifting the stairs leading from the salon to the pilothouse or through two floor hatches in the pilothouse; there is plenty of room for maintenance and near-standing headroom. The room is well lit, covered with light aluminum panels and diamond floor plating. Also located in the engine room is an 11 gallon water heater, inverter/charger, dual Racor fuel filters and an oil change system. The Northern Lights generator is also installed in the engine room and is equipped with a sound shield and water/gas separator, keeping everything very quiet.
Fuel and Water:
The NP39 is equipped with one 200 gallon water tank and two 150 gallon baffled fuel tanks, both of which are made from separate fiberglass molds and placed in the hull. Vinyl ester resins and an inner coating of gelcoat is used in all tanks.
