The Northern Marine 80 Raised Pilothouse has been called a long-distance cruising specialist thanks to the expedition-style hull design. Built on the same hull as the Northern Marine 80-Tri-Deck, the 80 Raised Pilothouse sports a lower profile and a superstructure that has been extended forward benefitting the functional interior arrangement.
The pilothouse on the Northern Marine 80 RPH offers completely unobstructed views over the Portuguese bridge and large bulwarks which help keep guests and the exterior living space dry during cruise. A raised observation area and dining settée are placed forward of the convenient pilot berth that overlooks the helm console which includes a vast array of state-of-the-art navigational and communication equipment. There is a second helm station on the flybridge as well that includes guest seating with 360-degree views. The boat deck extends over the main-level aft deck to accommodate two tenders with ease.
The master stateroom on the 80 Raised Pilothouse stretches the full beam of the yacht and is located midship. While some Northern Marine yachts have the master suite on the main deck, on the 80 Raised Pilothouse it is found on the lower deck. This offers an additional measure of stability and comfort during open ocean crossings. A curved stairway leads up to the main deck from a private foyer serving the owners and VIP suites. Large storage areas for provisions, exceptional ventilation, and an abundant amount of space for guests in their accommodations make this a perfect option for owners looking for a suitable long-range cruising or expedition yacht that has a raised pilothouse.
