Northwest Trawlers Adds 55 to Model Lineup

Northwest Trawlers Founder Peter Whiting has announced that his company is adding a new flagship to the company’s fleet — the NW 55. Designed by Steve Seaton, the NW 55 keeps the look of the Northwest 45 and 50, but adds a newer, more streamlined flybridge that will eventually make its way to the 45 and 50 as well.

The NW 55 has a basic 2-stateroom layout, with a queen berth athwartship in the forepeak and another queen athwartship in a mid-hull cabin. Northwest says the company is flexible about final configurations and is more than happy to work with clients to customize the layouts and finish.

The preliminary main deck layout has an L-shaped settee aft and to port in the salon, with free-standing chairs to starboard. The gourmet galley is forward, to port and features a pantry.

Northwest says the 55 will come standard with a John Deere 6125, with 610 HP. A preliminary fuel load of 1,400 gallons should give the yacht a range of approximately 2,800 NM at 8 knots. The boat will hold 400 gallons of water and Whiting says preliminary specifications call for black and gray water tankage of about 200 gallons.
