The M/V Nuliaq was custom built for Alaskan waters. She is the product of 12 years of cruising experience in a smaller boat on Prince William Sound. Her 17-foot beam and full displacement hull with built-in roll chocks made this 52-foot US Coast Guard certified ocean going vessel extremely stable for the novice cruiser.
This "new" Nuliaq has considerably more room and privacy that the first. The cockpit will hold a gang of fishermen plus a ton of glacier ice to cool your fish or drinks down.
The salon table can seat up to eight and converts to a king-sized bed. A second settee in the salon area provides additional seating for those who opt out of the games and kibitzing. All can keep an eye on the fishermen and scenery from inside if they want to visit, read, play games, or listen to music while the serious fishing is happening outside - or if the weather is not cooperating! Then, when it is "Fish On", you can exit through the wide salon door to the back deck /cockpit area and watch the fish get pulled in.
Waiting for Fish to Bite!
We learned from our first boat that everybody wants to be in the pilot house especially when we travel. So, we made this one spacious with a panoramic 360-degree view. The large settee and table make into a queen-sized bed, still leaving room for a small dance! Here is the perfect gathering place whether we are underway or at anchor. You can play cards, games, read, nap, snack, or keep an eye on the captain plus watch the sea life and scenery.
To take a picture or soak in the pristine beauty of nature, slip out one of the two pilot house doors and walk around the entire ship surrounded by safety rails. The flying bridge is also readily accessible and will accommodate everyone who wants to revel in the sea life and scenery.
Fun and Games in the Pilot House!
The boat is carpeted throughout. Each custom furnished stateroom has a private head and shower with brass fixtures. All staterooms have opening windows with screens and room-darkening curtains to keep out the Alaska midnight sun.
The heating system and thermopane windows ensure comfort throughout the completely insulated hull on even the most blustery days. Most people tell us the beds are so comfortable they can't believe how well they slept.
