Although not designed as a dedicated fishing boat the rear fishing cockpit gives access to the aft deck and the flybridge through a series of companionways making boarding easier. Gone is the traditional ladder of the previous aft cabin designs, which made them unpopular with older owners.

The traditional timber interior décor has also been replaced with a stylish fabric finish on walls and panels with cherrywood highlights. The aft cabin features a full king-size bed with separate head and shower.

The new Alaska 49 is powered by brand new Cummins QSB-6.7–litre, 480 hp diesel engines, which give the vessel a top speed of 21 knots.
