Strong, stable, stunning, sleek: North Pacific Yachts’ newest pilothouse ticks all the boxes this fall.
The profile of North Pacific’s new 49′ Euro Pilothouse, with its slight forward rake and sturdy fiberglass hull, is the epitome of a classic, strong, stable trawler. A peek inside, however, reveals many elegant touches and luxury amenities give it the feeling of a much larger vessel.
The flybridge, for instance, is spacious enough to entertain guests and store a 12.5’ RIB dinghy on the same deck. Open-air seating at an L-shaped dinette aft of the helm station provides spectacular, 360˚ views, plus a barbecue mount and another bench seat to port. The foredeck can be accessed from both the pilothouse and flybridge and includes a molded-in, cushioned seat with a flip-down backrest.
The interior of the highly customizable pilothouse and full-beam salon features satin-finished ash, wenge, and blackwood paneled walls, dovetailed drawers, and solid hardwood flooring. The settees in the salon are custom made and upholstered with fine leather. A common feature for all potential layouts is the placement of large windows and high, 6’10” ceilings throughout that flood the interior with natural light and panoramic views. Aft to port, the galley includes a convection/microwave oven, a refrigerator/freezer, granite or quartz options for countertops, and a four-burner cooktop, which can be ordered in glass-top, propane, or induction models. There’s also room for an optional dishwasher and trash compactor.
The pilothouse helm features a full set of Garmin electronics, including chart plotters, autopilot, radar, a fish finder, and VHF radios, all controlled from either Stidd or Llebroc helm chairs. A stairway beside the helm leads down to the accommodations, which can be configured in a three-stateroom layout or an option with two staterooms and an office. The master, located either forward or amidships, is full beam with a queen-sized berth, a recessed headboard, spacious windows, an en suite head and shower, and nearly 82” of headroom. The guest staterooms can have either queen-sized berths or bunk beds and have easy access to a shared day head and shower.
The voluminous cockpit covers about 74 square feet, but can be extended by two more feet astern. The area is fully covered by the aft flybridge deck and includes an expandable teak table and cushioned seating along the transom. The cockpit and swim platform are both finished with synthetic Flexiteek decks that resemble real teak but require no maintenance.
All of this is powered by the 49’ Euro’s single 355hp QSB 6.7-liter Cummins diesel engine, capable of cruising at 7 to 10 knots. Larger engines are available for higher top speeds, as well as twin engines and get-home-engine options.
