“ Our goal is to be the best, not
It has been this
obsession which has driven Leon Slikkers, founder of S2 Yachts, Tiara Yachts
and Pursuit Boats, since he began building boats in 1945. The drive to build
every boat perfect. The drive to make every boat the best using the latest
technology and engineering combined with real world craftsmanship for over 64
Values and Heritage
At Pursuit, our main core value is
to do the right thing. This goes beyond building
boats and influences the way we conduct our business with our customers. Pursuit
owners enjoy a pride of ownership in their boats, knowing that they are backed
by the heritage, strength, commitment and values which drive us every day.
Only select dealers can make the grade and represent the best boat the industry
has to offer with an unmatched family-owned success story that goes back more
than six decades. Sixty years ago is when founder Leon Slikkers was striking
out on his own and building fiberglass boats in his garage in 1947 – becoming
a leader in the growing fiberglass boat building industry and turning his passion
and dream into a reality. Words like “integrity” and “quality” are
not catch phrases at Pursuit – they carry great responsibility and help
us chart the right course to making the right decisions each day. The boats we
build are a direct reflection of the Slikkers’ family’s values and
We at Pursuit work every day to earn your trust and we respect your time on the
water. A core value at Pursuit is in the responsible management of supply and
demand. We build a low volume, high quality line that consistently outperforms
the market. The value of your purchase is maintained and enhanced year after
year. Contact your nearest dealer and see why the demand for Pursuit boats continues
to grow each year.
We at Pursuit still believe that a boat
should be timeless in it’s styling,
not look like the fashion fad of the day. It must be beautiful and that beauty
should make a statement about the brand and stir an emotion within its owners
for generations. From the graceful hull lines, to cabins, windshields, helms,
and hardtops, every Pursuit is built to not only be classically beautiful but
functional, providing exhilarating performance consistent with the level of excellence
our customers demand. We design our product with an element of our recognizable
trademark and personality – they are unmistakable in their styling – “classic” with
a blend of contemporary elements.
Exceptional fuel efficiency, predictable
handling, comfortable ride in coastal or offshore sea conditions – these are what you will enjoy each and every
time on your Pursuit. Get on board and touch, see and feel the difference!!!
You will enjoy the smoothest, quietest, quality ride available, with the reliability
of the most fuel-efficient boats made.
Exclusive Hulls for Purposely Built Models
While Pursuit shares many design elements, construction methods and features
within each model we build, one thing that is never compromised is
the design of each hull. Each model uses a hull specifically designed for the model’s
purpose. Beginning with our 25 foot models, our Offshore cabin models are built
on hulls that were designed to be cabin boats with the proper length, beam
and deadrise for the purpose of offering the best ride with the proper balance
to insure our customers get maximized predictable performance from their Pursuit.
Beginning at 28 feet, our Center Console models feature hard-driving 24 degree
deadrise hulls that have the smoothest rides available for those hard-core
and the performance oriented family boater.
In the “Pursuit of Perfection” we won’t sacrifice the ride
you are looking for in order to save money by using hulls that are a compromise
to the performance you expect and are paying for.
We won’t settle for less – why
A brand doesn’t become an
icon without having exceptional durability and styling, award-winning
customer satisfaction and award-winning innovation, design
and performance. Our customers enjoy exceptional pride in
ownership over the years as a result of our consistent quality,
and dependable performance.
Leaders in the Industry, not followers. Beginning
with the Tiara 31, the world’s
first express boat to the Pursuit 34 Drummond Island, the list of Tiara and Pursuit
firsts and award-winning designs is unparalleled. We are not followers – we
are innovators. Just take a look at Pursuit’s exclusive integrated epoxy-infused
windshields on the OS 345. They are durable, attractive
and significantly stronger that aluminum and by the way they will not corrode
While many important factors enter into the design process, one gives us a special “insider’s” view
of what our future customers desire in their new Pursuit Boats – that is
the process of speaking with past and current customers, ours and our competitors.
The design team at Pursuit feels that its input from customers and other special
groups gives the company the best opportunity to design a model that includes
all the new features that today’s customer demands.
The other “special groups” that Pursuit brings into new product discussions
are members of the boating press, including the editors who have had the opportunity
to view many other models and can give their valued opinions. The team also speaks
at length with the Chairman’s Dealer Council, a team of Pursuit dealers
chosen for their leadership and customer service excellence.
Eventually, the team of engineers at Pursuit will decide what innovations will
be adopted into the new model. Regardless of how many ideas reach the prototype,
the new Pursuit will still retain the look and performance that has marked Leon
Slikkers’ design success for more than five decades.
