1999 PACIFIC MARINER Pilothouse, People who know boats recognize William Garden s sweptback sculpted hull and the unique styling of Gregory Marshall. Not only have these masters created a timeless, classical style, but also achieved a unique balance of beauty and performance. One of their primary objectives was to create pilothouse motor-yacht that could easily be managed by two people. This is achieved in all aspects of layout and systems. The hydraulic bow thrusters and winches positioned aft simplify docking or anchoring. The dual pilothouse doors, the walk around decks, and great visibility from both navigation stations are just a few other features worth noting. The 17 3 beam helps reduce drag, resulting in a healthy top speed of more than 27-knots and cruising speed of 20-knots. The large molded areas of the Pacific Mariner s frame provide structural strength that eliminates telltale joint lines and leaks.
