A classic raised pilothouse motoryacht, the continually evolving Pacific Mariner 85 provides an entry level to the vaunted Westport line. Fast, seaworthy and economical, the Pacific Mariner 85 is also unusually quiet. The late William Garden designed the hull so the sharp, deep forefoot slices through waves. Twin 1,500-horsepower MTUs lend cruise speeds in the low 20-knot range.
This Memorial Day, remember those who were lost serving our country on the high seas in the U.S. Navy aboard PT Boats. Recently we were invited out for a ride on the only operational combat-veteran PT Boat, PT 305 in New Orleans.
