New Model: Alaska 57 Pilothouse

Alaska yachts from down under Australia present its new 57 Pilothouse model. Following the smaller 54 sister, the hull of the new 57 Pilothouse was computer scaled from the successful 46 series with the latest CAD software. The 57 pilothouse simply offers you the best configuration for high end luxury cruising. Her classic and elegant looks combined with her generous sixteen feet plus of beam give an unparalleled Explorer Yacht with a myriad of living spaces on board. The 57 Pilothouse is a cross over motor explorer yacht design trying to give the best of both worlds outside, inside and during navigation. The Australia builder notes had some key design features for the 57 Pilothouse which included walk-around decks, three double cabin configuration, full-beam master stateroom having a king-size double berth, dual en suites, laundry, fibreglass hardtop over cockpit, and tender storage deck on aft flybridge. The 57 Pilothouse features Alaska's variable hull design which can cruise at an economical 9 knots, or a normal 18 knots. Top speed is 22 knots.
