Quality Equipment; Well Laid Out
See Specifications for more information on equipment.
All North Pacific Yachts are designed so that all equipment, wiring and plumbing is easy to access. There are numerous hatches throughout our boats; 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 NP49 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 49′ are held up by an interlocking aluminum grid. Unlike wood, this grid will never sag or swell over time, meaning it will always be easy to remove hatches.
A full set of Garmin electronics is included in the base price of the North Pacific 49E Pilothouse. This includes chart plotters, autopilot, radar, fish finder and VHF radios. Due to electronics evolving so quickly, the standard list changes, so please inquire for details.
The North Pacific 49E is powered by a single 355 hp QSB 6.7L Cummins diesel engine. The 355 hp QSB is a good choice, pushing the NP49E along at a 7-10 knot cruise with a top speed of about 11.5kts. Larger engines are available for higher top speeds. Twin engines and get-home engines are also available.

With the single engine configuration, the propeller, shaft and rudder are fully protected, taking much of the worry out of watching for logs while cruising in the Pacific Northwest or hitting the bottom on the ICW. Standard equipment on the North Pacific 49E includes an oversized rudder and 24v Sleipner bow thruster, giving you the maneuverability to make docking in any slip easy. A stern thruster is optional equipment for those who like the maneuverability of twins but the economy of a single engine.
Wiring on the NP49E shows our careful attention to every detail. 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.
The engine room on the North Pacific 49E is spacious and well lit. It is well insulated with 2″ foam/rubber/lead sound dampening insulation. In addition to this, rubber is installed on the aluminum grid above the engine room to cut down on noise and vibration. The engine room is easily accessed through three removable floor hatches on the salon floor. Once in the engine room, there is plenty of headroom and space to move around. Located in the engine room is the generator; two baffled fiberglass fuel tanks (separately made with vinyl ester resin coated with gelcoat) with a total capacity of 700 gallons (up to 920 gallons is optional); 20-gallon water heater; and an oil change system.
Sanitation and Plumbing
The plumbing is PEX with compression fittings for a long lasting and very reliable system. We use Trident Premium sanitation hose with a 10-year guaranty against odor. External holding tank sensors are reliable and require no maintenance.
The freshwater system consists of a 200 gallon fiberglass tank in the bilge and heavy duty dual Marco pumps and accumulator tank for quiet and reliable operation.
