Fol­low­ing the same styling cues and hull form as 2014’s Pi­lot­house 45 de­but, North Pa­cific Yachts is well un­der­way to bring­ing a 44 Sedan to North Amer­ica this win­ter. The 44 will fea­ture a 21-foot-long saloon/gal­ley/helm com­bi­na­tion on a sin­gle level, a skeg keel with prop pro­tec­tion, two state­rooms, and plen­ti­ful in­te­rior head­room. A sin­gle 250-horsep­wer Cum­mins 6.7L QSB diesel pow­er­plant will pro­vide own­ers with a pro­jected eco­nom­i­cal cruis­ing speed of 7 knots at 2.5 gph with the abil­ity to cruise com­fort­ably at 10 knots.

Un­usual for pro­duc­tion yachts at this price point, lay­outs can also be cus­tom-or­dered. In ad­di­tion to this flex­i­bil­ity, the brand prides it­self on in­clud­ing a healthy num­ber of stan­dard fea­tures—a nav­i­ga­tion pack­age among them—mak­ing for a straight­for­ward options list. In ad­di­tion to the sedan de­sign, the most sig­nif­i­cant dif­fer­ence from the 45 will be full wrap­around decks.

Near the smaller end of their lineup of off­shore pas­sage­mak­ers, next year Ber­ing Yachts plans to in­tro­duce the 65 No­mad. Shar­ing the same full-dis­place­ment, eco­nom­i­cal long-range cruis­ing de­sign as its brethren (the range cur­rently spans from 50-115 feet), this new steel raised pi­lot­house weighs in at a burly 235,000 pounds. Pow­ered by twin Cum­mins QSL9, Tier

4 EPA-com­pli­ant en­gines, the 65N is es­ti­mated to ex­ceed 5,000 miles at an 8-gph fuel burn rate. A 10-knot max is avail­able for de­cid­edly less ef­fi­ciency, but with to­tal fuel tank­age to 4,500 gal­lons, you prob­a­bly won’t be stop­ping for fuel too often, no mat­ter what your speed.

In a de­par­ture from its more tra­di­tion­ally styled Ber­ing 65 lit­ter­mate, the 65 No­mad’s huge, seam­less win­dows in the su­per­struc­ture and ver­ti­cal hull­side port­lights work to­gether to en­sure that the ship takes full ad­van­tage of avail­able nat­u­ral light, all the way down to the cab­ins. In the Euro­pean style, wood­work de­tails are clean and fuss-free, and each owner will have a wide range of cus­tom fin­ishes avail­able.

Sta­bi­liza­tion is op­tional, so own­ers can opt out, or take ad­van­tage of hy­draulic fins or Sea­keeper gyro sta­bi­liza­tion.
