CRUISER SPOTLIGHT: North Pacific 45 Pilothouse
The North Pacific 45 Pilothouse is more than just an update to the Canadian brand’s successful 43. Adding a reverse-rake windshield, top-notch craftsmanship (including bent laminated joints that create seamless corners), stainless window frames, and singlescrew power, this semi- displacement yacht can reach 15-knots but is equally happy at displacement speeds. The 45PH gets it all done for an economical delivery price that includes a complete Garmin electronics package, bow thruster, generator, and flybridge hardtop. The 45 redesign also features a plumb bow, increasing volume in the master stateroom and anchor locker, and raised spray chines to reduce wave slap.
