The all-new Pursuit DC 306 replaces one of their most popular dual consoles, the DC 295. Featuring an innovative, fully integrated fiberglass hardtop with tempered glass windshield and the dual console design’s walkthrough door, both captain and crew can be fully protected from the elements. The windows port and starboard deliver unparalleled visibility with unobstructed views. When the center window is closed and secured, the bridge deck is dry and wind-free, a hallmark of Pursuit’s dual console design.

For over a dozen years, Pursuit’s OS 385 was one of their most popular hulls, with a family friendly layout, solid ride, and ample fishing functionality. When it came time to replace it, the design team at Pursuit made sure to raise the bar. They went bigger—all the way to 43 feet—and gave it a slightly more aggressive hull. They upgraded the styling, and added more luxurious finishes.

Pursuit DC 266 Review

The Pursuit DC266 in the Sovereign Boat Club has been in service for two years and two months. She has 427 hours on her twin 200-hp Yamahas, which is equal to about 5.5 years of average, one-owner use. During those two years, there have been 10 different operators and the boat still looks like new. Part of the reason is that we put a ceramic coating on her every year and we clean her and flush the engines after every use. The other reason is that she is well-built. The important thing is that in two years she has only had one problem needing repair.

The rise in popularity of building boats that combine comfort and fishability has had perhaps the single greatest impact on boat building in recent years. Similarly, the booming economy has created more demand for luxury sport boats that take comfort to greater heights. For some time now, Pursuit Boats has been ahead of the curve in this regard and the S 358 Sport model is a classic example of taking comfort to the next level.

The latest in the Sport Boat Series, the S 358 continues to combine the virtues of versatility and performance.
You’ll often hear people say “There’s no such thing as a perfect boat,” the idea being that boaters have diverse wants and needs and you can’t really check the boxes for all the different uses. Well, I think it’s safe to say the Pursuit Sport Boat Series crumpled up that notion and threw it in the trash.

Fort Pierce, Florida, is center console country. It is home to an easily navigable inlet that gives anglers access to the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf Stream, rich with sailfish, dolphin, snapper, grouper, tuna and many other good-eating species. The inlet itself is lined with sandbars that draw scores of boats on the weekends, and the historic downtown fronts on the ICW, which acts as a waterborne highway for local boaters taking day trips north to Vero Beach or south to Stuart and Jupiter.

The Pursuit S 358 this fall joins five other models in the Fort Pierce, Florida, builder’s Sport series, which comprises center consoles from 26 to 42 feet. These boats share a similar purpose: providing a platform that’s fine-tuned for fishing but also is comfortable when the rods are stowed. That equates to fun and relaxation for family and guests at sandbars, anchorages and dock-and-dine stops when the boat isn’t patrolling the fishing grounds. The S 358 covers those bases.

Pursuit Boats have tough, proven hulls matched to dependable Yamaha Outboards, which have earned them a devoted following among fishermen in the Northeast who want to get to the fishing grounds—and back—in comfort. They build a wide selection of 14 different boats across four categories (Offshore, Center Console, Dual Console, and Sport), ranging from 23- to 42-feet, powered by dependable Yamaha Outboards.

Pursuit boats are known for their hulls, reinforced with a resin-infused, fiberglass structural grid system that provides a finished surface inside the bilge area. Pursuit provides a five-year hull and deck structural warranty with a two-year component warranty, all of which are transferable to subsequent owners. Quality is visible in their ultra-premium gelcoat, which is backed by a five-year hull blister warranty.

Raising the bar even higher.

So much effort is made to create multifunctional boats for families today that the notion of single-handed boating gets lost for fear of crossing the dreaded “politically incorrect” meridian.

I know the wife would never grant me permission to buy a boat without, say, 12 months of advance consultation, including side trips to the Magnificent Mile that always seem to end with a skillet of Bandera cornbread and a Hendricks gin martini. Now, mention that you want said boat for the occasional solo Saturday trip and that skillet becomes an unwelcome explanation point. Upon returning from a test ride on the inspired Pursuit Dual Console (DC) 326, I realize this is indeed the perfect boat for social distancing, yet is also ideal for couples with small kids who savor an escape from traffic. And, yes, it also has a functional layout for the skipper to easily handle all seakeeping tasks by himself should the opportunity ever arise. Just saying.

Breath In

At 33 feet below the ocean’s surface, the human body is neutrally buoyant — essentially weightless. Above that, the gases in your body naturally make you float upward. Below it, the atmospheric pressure compresses those gases, and you sink at a rate that increases with your depth. Divers call this phenomenon “the doorway to the deep.”

When the team at Pursuit Boats proudly introduced the S 408, CEO and President Tom Slikkers used a combination of words that would seem odd in the same breath in most circumstances: “badness, meanness, softness.” But those of us who talk about beefy center consoles and what they have to offer know exactly what he’s talking about. These offshore fishing boats are mean: They’re animals on the high seas, pouncing on rough conditions and eating up the chop, with running surfaces designed to meet nearly anything you throw at them and powered by ever-higher-climbing outboard packages, both in numbers of motors and horsepower.

In pursuit of innovation

When you test boats nearly every week for a living, you become leery of formulaic advertising boasting “new features,” “improved performance” or “innovative design.” But when Bruce Thompson, vice president of operations for Pursuit Boats, leaned over at a new products dealer meeting and personally wanted to point out the OS 355 with at least 80 significant design features and engine changes, out came the reporters pad, on went the polarized sunglasses, and I said, “let’s go.”

Pursuit OS 355 Review

The 2016 Pursuit OS355 represents a keel-up redesign based on the 345 model introduced in 2008. “We had one goal, which was to maintain tradition but bring new, clean styling and exterior lines,” said Chris Gratz, Pursuit Director of Engineering. The team brought to the OS355 some 80 new design features, which are on display literally from stem to stern.

Distinctive voices, especially those with a rich British accent, create quite the impression. To help paint the setting for our review of the Pursuit OS 325, watch a video clip of actor John Gielgud in the movie Arthur, starring Dudley Moore. Here I am, on my hands and knees, in the sole of this boat, inspecting the beefy hardware, when out of nowhere I hear this regally delivered statement, “She is quite the gentlemen’s fishing boat!”

Big enough to take the whole family offshore for a day of adventure yet compact enough to easily tow, Pursuit’s new DC 235 checks a lot of boxes for Great Lakes boaters.
