When you want to purchase a new pilothouse boat built for Pacific Northwest conditions, look no further than right here in the Upper Left. First introduced in 2020, this 52-foot beaut from Apollonian has been upgraded for 2022 with even more spacious interiors and elegant, swept back lines. The vessel is designed by renowned naval architect Howard Apollonio in conjunction with longtime yacht salesman Vic Parcells and features a true raised pilothouse, three staterooms, and three heads to comfortably accommodate up to six people.
The main deck has an open pilothouse space, with a captain’s chair, a dinette settee, and dining table. Throughout the interior, the décor includes abundant American Cherry finishes, including burled cabinet tops.
The standard navigation equipment on the Apollonian 52 helm reads like a list of luxury options on boats of this size. A deluxe Garmin electronics package features a Phantom radar, autopilot with remote, AIS, VHF, electronic charts, and twin 16” 8616MFD displays, with two 11” repeaters on the flybridge. Other equipment includes a Lewmar electric windlass, an AGM 8D battery system, and an electric bow thruster.
Aft of the helm to starboard is a convenient day head, and to port is the fully furnished galley with a double sink, a four-burner electric stove, and several stainless steel appliances; including a range oven, microwave, dishwasher, trash compactor, and 10.4-cubic-foot refrigerator. Three steps lead down to the salon, which is decked out with a Bose sound system and a recessed Samsung LCD TV opposite a U-shaped couch. An aft sliding door exits from the salon to the cockpit, which has an integral swim platform and swim step on the transom.
A floating staircase leads up to the large, open flybridge and boat deck, which includes a second helm station, an al fresco dining table, a wet bar, and an electric BBQ grill. Aft of the flybridge is a lounge deck with a sun pad and plenty of stowage space for an RIB.
Belowdecks is a full-beam master suite with a queen-sized island berth and an en suite head. The large VIP cabin also has a queen bed and direct access to an en suite head, while the third cabin features two bunkbeds.
Cruising in the mid-teens and topping out at 18 knots, the 52 is powered by twin Cummins QSB 6.7 direct-drive diesel inboards, producing a combined 850 hp. For an added kick, an option for two 660-hp Cummins engines is available to push the top speed past 20 knots.
