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 NP450 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.

Floor Structure

All floors in the North Pacific 450 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 450 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.

Engine Room

The engine room on the North Pacific 450 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 a hinged, gas-assisted hatch in the salon. There is plenty of space around the engine and generator to comfortably access all areas. The North Pacific 450 Pilothouse comes with a standard oil change system for the engine, transmission and generator, making oil changes easy and clean. There are two fiberglass baffled fuel tanks in the engine room with a capacity of 400 gallons. For additional range, the tankage can be increased to 700 gallons.

Mechanical Equipment

The North Pacific 450 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 11.5 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 450 includes a large rudder and a very powerful 24v Sleipner 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.

Electrical Equipment

Wiring on the North Pacific 450 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, Victron 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 as are lithium battery options.

Sanitation and Plumbing

The plumbing is PEX with compression fittings for a long lasting and very reliable system. We also use Trident Premium sanitation hoses with a 10-year guaranty against odor. External holding tank sensors are reliable and require no maintenance.

The freshwater system consists of a 240 gallon fiberglass tank in the bilge and heavy duty dual Marco pumps and accumulator tank for quiet and reliable operation. The 20 gallon electric water heater is located in the engine room.
