Quality Equipment; Well Laid Out
All North Pacific Yachts are designed so that all equipment, wiring and plumbing is easy to access. There are numerous hatches throughout the vessels; headliners are attached with Velcro and screw caps are used to make removal of teak wiring chases and other access panels easier. In order to ensure accessibility throughout the interior, the NP45 is built and varnished before most of the wiring or equipment is installed.
We only install top quality, brand name equipment to ensure safer and easier long-term operation of our boats. The equipment list is continually evolving as new and innovative products become available. If we feel that the ownership experience would be enhanced by adding equipment or upgrading the standard list, we make those changes.
All floors in the North Pacific 45′ Pilothouse are held up by an interlocking aluminum floor grid. Unlike wood, this will never sag or swell over time, and it adds strength and rigidity to the vessel.
A full set of Garmin electronics is included in the base price of the North Pacific 45′ Pilothouse. This includes chart plotters, autopilot, radar, fish finder and VHF radios. Due to rapidly evolving electronics, the standard list changes, so please inquire for details.
The engine room on the North Pacific 45′ Pilothouse is spacious and well lit. It is finished with perforated aluminum paneling, giving it a clean and bright look. All wiring and plumbing is neat and tidy in chases. The engine room is well-insulated with quality 2″ foam/rubber/lead sound dampening insulation. In addition to this, rubber is installed on the aluminum floor grid to isolate the salon floor from noise and vibration. Access to the engine room is through two hinged salon floor hatches. There is plenty of space around the engine and generator to comfortably access all areas. The North Pacific 45′ Pilothouse comes with a standard oil change system for the engine, transmission and generator, making oil changes a breeze. There are two fiberglass baffled fuel tanks in the engine room with a capacity of 400 gallons (extra fuel capacity is optional). There are also two water tanks in the engine room with a capacity of 350 gallons.
The North Pacific 45′ Pilothouse is powered by a single 355hp QSB 6.7L Cummins diesel. Larger engines and twin engine configurations are available for greater top-end speed. The 355hp is a great choice, allowing for comfortable and efficient cruise speeds from 7-10 knots with a 12 knot, top speed.

With the single engine configuration, the propeller, shaft and rudder are fully protected. This reduces the risk of hitting logs in the Pacific Northwest or the bottom on the ICW. Standard equipment on the North Pacific 45′ includes a large rudder and a very powerful 24v Side Power bow thruster, providing the maneuverability to make docking in any slip easy. A stern thruster is optional for those who like the maneuverability of twins but the economy of a single engine.
Wiring on the North Pacific 45′ Pilothouse is second to none. It is tinned, color coded, numbered, and runs through clean and well-laid-out wiring chases. A quiet Northern Lights generator with sound shield and water/gas separator, 2800W Magnum MS2812 pure sign wave inverter/charger, 160-amp alternator and a large AGM battery bank means you’ll have plenty of power. If you are looking to extend your time at anchor without running the generator, solar panels are available.
Sanitation and Plumbing
The plumbing is PEX with compression fittings for a long lasting and very reliable system. All pumps on board are reliable Whale diaphragm pumps that will give you years of maintenance-free use. We use Trident Premium sanitation hoses with a 10-year guaranty against odor. External holding tank sensors are reliable and require no maintenance.
