Pacific Mariner 85 - Production Built Custom Quality

The equipment is identical as well, and in its desire to make a complete turnkey boat, Pacific Mariner has used the best brands available, not just in the marine industry, but in any other industry, including cookware and linens.

Award-winning Furuno electronics are joined with award-winning Simrad autopilots and instruments - and the onboard computer runs the latest Nobeltec software. Three large 19-inch LCD displays are at the main helm, and two Furuno 10.4 inch displays are on the bridge..

The galley, on the same level as the pilothouse, comes equipped with household appliances from GE and KitchenAid. Cookware by Al Clad, knives by Henckel and china by Mikasa are just some of the other standards. Staterooms below are divided into two areas. The forward guest staterooms are accessed by a stairwell in the pilothouse - there are two with queen beds and a third with twins.

The VIP stateroom forward has its own head and a large closet. The other two also have their own heads, only slightly smaller than the VIP's. Flat screen TV's are in all staterooms, and two sets of linens for each stateroom as well as towels are included.

The master stateroom with a king-size bed is amidships and is accessed from a stairwell ahead of the wet bar. His and hers walk-in closets are on either side of the bed, with vanity and storage space in abundant quantities..

Quality control is something we heard a lot about at the plant. Pacific Mariner's goal has been to build one of the finest and most complete boats on the market, providing outstanding value for the consumer.

The master head features a jetted tub, as well as marble countertops, floor and shower surround - all manufactured in-house. More well known brand name components such as Kohler sinks and bidet, Grohe single lever faucets and Hunter Douglas blinds are here and throughout the boat.

Comfortable and Quiet

Aft of the pilothouse and galley, the salon and dining room are spacious and surrounded on three sides by large windows. The dining table seats eight, and forward of it is the bulkhead that separates the salon area from the galley, which has the buffet and hutch built-in, complete with china and crystal with 12 place settings.

With the dining tablet to the port side of the boat, there is room for a wet bar to starboard with more granite, a stainless steel sink, and an ice-maker and a wine cooler. With more than 21 feet of beam, there is more than enough room for the spacious dining area and a well-equipped wet bar that can double as a serving area.
