The long-distance specialist. Built on the same proven hull as the 80 Tri-Deck, the Northern Marine 80 Raised Pilothouse yacht offers a lower profile and a superstructure that has been extended forward, evidence of an innovative and functional arrangement within.
The full-beam master suite has been located amidships on the lower deck for an extra measure of stability and comfort on open ocean crossings. A curved stairway leads up to the main deck from a private foyer serving the owners and VIP suites. In the saloon, a large fixed lounge to port faces a large-screen TV and casual seating opposite. Just forward, a dining banquette is adjacent to an exceptionally well-equipped galley.
Forward and up one half-level, the pilothouse offers an unobstructed view ahead over the Portuguese bridge and generous bulwarks, part of a hull form that ensures a dry ride. A raised observation/dining settée just forward of a convenient pilot berth overlooks the helm console with its array of state-of-the-art navigation and communication electronics. A second helm station on the flybridge includes plenty of guest seating, with a virtual 360-degree view for all. The boat deck extends over the main-level aft deck to accommodate two tenders with ease.
A stairway descends from the pilothouse to the forward accommodations deck arranged with two en suite guest staterooms; one with queen berth, the other with single berths for three.
Large storage areas throughout this yacht allow provisioning for long range cruising. Superb seakeeping, ride and handling make it worthwhile.
