Pacific Northwest luxury yacht builder Northern Marine manufactures expedition yachts and superyachts from 17 to 46 metres in length.
Luxury yacht builder Northern Marine was founded in Anacortes, Washington, by entrepreneur Richard “Bud” LeMieux in 1995. From the start, the shipyard manufactured rugged, oceangoing, luxury trawler yachts, in keeping with the seafaring traditions of this Pacific Northwest port, but utilised advanced composite construction techniques to build them.
Less than a decade later, luxury yacht builder Northern Marine added superyachts to its line, including the 39.6M custom motor yacht Magic designed by naval architect Ward Setzer and delivered in 2005. The following year, luxury yacht builder Northern Marine was acquired by Ashton Capital Corporation.
In addition to superyacht Magic, luxury yacht builder Northern Marine launched the 44.5M tri-deck superyacht Lia Fail in 2005.
In 2007, superyacht builder Northern Marine delivered the 25.76M luxury expedition yacht Spellbound, a fine example of the shipyard’s oceangoing displacement yacht line, with a range of 5,000 nautical miles.
