Pacific Mariner 85' RPH MotoryachtA Genetic Infusion Updates A Popular Model Redux is a term used in literature and film-titles meaning “restored” or “brought back”. It’s been known to signify a “new interpretation of an existing work”. Befitting for yachting’s use also, it can be aptly applied to the new Pacific Mariner 85. Let’s clarify: the “new” denotes an updated style. The Pacific Mariner 85 has been around for a while, about 15-hulls long with the subject of this review being number 16. Recently, Westport Yachts has folded the Pacific Mariner brand under their wing with a new interpretation of an already proven model. So why improve on a good thing? Because it was time to revamp the squared-off styling of the 1990’s. Rounding corners, softening edges and enhancing the “curb appeal” of this yacht has added years to her, not in an aging affect, but that her new lines will take her well into the future.
