Northern Marine delivers new 84' Long Range Cruiser.

ANACORTES, Wash., After successful sea trials the Anacortes based luxury boat builder, Northern Marine, has delivered the first of an extended version of it's already popular 80' tri-deck LRC. The new 84' tri-deck was designed to give more room to the pilot house and main salon while expanding the exterior deck spaces for additional tender area and outside seating.

The added length allows the owner a little more elbow room while working the tenders and room for a larger table on the aft deck remarked Bud Lemieux, Head of Northern Marine's production.

The new 84' and the already successful 80' tri-decks are the flagships of Northern Marine's Expedition Yacht series, both vessels offer expanded interior spaces and luxurious appointments for complete onboard enjoyment. Large fuel capacity, extended deck areas and a long list of equipment choices serve virtually any cruising lifestyle, from coastal exploration to transoceanic passages.

The functional arrangements includes an on-deck owners' suite with two queen-berth staterooms and a two-bunk accommodation on the lower deck, each with en suite head and shower.

The Spellbound's large, fully-equipped galley allows convenient service to the adjacent dining area. The comfortable saloon opens to a covered aft deck, where guests can relax and enjoy the view. Topside, the full-beam boat deck provides room for centerline davit and two tenders, plus an aft-facing settee.

The pilothouse offers a spectacular view for captain and guests, who can enjoy the ride from a large settee that doubles as a second dining area.

Thanks to its 21' 4" beam, the Northern Marine 84' allows plenty of space in the engine room for a variety of systems and equipment, which include main engine, dual generators, hydraulics, air conditioning, watermaker and a large workbench. The lazarette is carefully arranged to provide convenient access to batteries, air conditioning, watermaking and electrical systems, for easy servicing and reliable operation over the long term.

A proven resin-infused hull design, top-grade components and Northern Marine's recognized leadership in composite yacht building ensure a lifetime of carefree cruising enjoyment. Northern Marine was founded in 1995 and builds full and semi displacement luxury yachts ranging from 57' to 151'. Employing over 50 people in the Anacortes community, the yard has delivered over 25 yachts in their 11 years in business.
