The master cabin has tons of storage and is placed in the vessel bow. The North Pacific 49 has a top cruising speed of 10 knots, and looks right at home on the water. The saloon feel open and spacious thanks to large windows all around. Sightlines from the helm are ideal for captaining from the lower helm. If you're in the mood to be outside captains can also pilot from the flybridge. Power comes from a single 355hp QSB 6.7 with Optional Power to 500hp.
