Well time flies and here we are almost year since the last post. It’s definitely time for an update! Since the last blog post we’ve had a busy year with several boat shows, deliveries and lots of work developing our new models.
We’re happy to announce that we received orders for the first two 44′ Sedans and have started production on both. We plan to deliver the first to Seattle early next year and the second to Mobile, AL in the spring next year. We will post some updates shortly here and/or on our Facebook account at www.facebook.com/northpacificyachts . Please do check out our Facebook page as we frequently post construction pictures, new boats, happy owners and other news.
On the topic of new boats and happy owners, Andrew and Patti took delivery of their new 45′ Pilothouse in the Pacific Northwest only one month ago and are already on the border between BC and Alaska. They have no firm plans but intend to spend the the whole spring and summer in Northern BC and Alaska. What a great trip!
Another noteworthy trip to mention is a cruise in SE Asia that a North Pacific 49 has been on for about a year now. The owner took delivery in Hong Kong, went to Manilla and cruised some of the Philippine Islands. From there they went through Indonesia to Singapore, up the Malaysian Coast to Kuala Lumpur and are now travelling in the Andaman Sea in Thailand. They have cruised well over 4000 nm in the area and are thoroughly enjoying the experience. It’s amazing how far you can cruise, island hopping, in SE Asia and many other parts of the World without crossing an Ocean. Once this trip is complete the owner intends to ship the boat to the Mediterranean for a year or two. Surely there will be more to report on this boat’s adventure.
Back to new projects:
We’ve been receiving a lot of interest lately in a North Pacific 39′ Pilothouse with reverse rake pilothouse windows. This is a relatively minor mold change and we will now be offering the 39 with this new look and with Next Generation finish. Please contact us for more details.
Finally, we are going to be ready to start building the first 59′ Pilothouse in the fall. This is an exciting project and we look forward to delivering the first one in 2018. If you are thinking about a boat in this size range the NP59 should be on the list. With an 18’4″ beam, plumb bow and LWL of 56’8′, the NP58 will offer the space of most boats found in the 65′ + range in a more manageable package. This includes a huge salon with separate dinning area, a great pilothouse and a full beam midship master with salon access. There will be two guests staterooms as well as the possibility of crew quarters. The 59 will be offered with standard twin engines and twin skegs as part of a comprehensive (and customizable) equipment list, lowering the stress of a new build. We are working closely with an Italian naval architect and interior designer for a top-of-the line look and feel. The 59 is going to be a stunning vessel and capable vessel (can be built to CE A standards) that will be a strong competitor in this category.
Whether you are thinking about a new NP59 or a pre-owned NP28, getting out on the water is what’s important. There is a lifetime of possibilities and adventures out there so don’t delay; start making your dream a reality…
