In Pursuit of Your Perfect Boat - A Buyers Guide

Buyers Guide

The Pursuit Boats portfolio has been carefully designed to appeal to every boater’s needs. But out of the numerous boats available in our portfolio, how do you select the one that’s right for you? In this buyer’s guide, we’ll take you through the selling points for our three product lines to help you choose the perfect Pursuit Boat for your - and your family’s - boating needs.

Understanding the Range

The Pursuit Boats product range consists of three categories:

Sport Center Consoles

Dual Consoles


While the boats in all three categories share Pursuit’s DNA for quality, reliability, fishability and luxury, and all are similarly capable, they do still have some differences. Let’s find out what those are and what you need to know about each one so that you can make an informed purchasing decision.


Sport Center Consoles

The Sport series is an extremely flexible platform that is as comfortable fishing as it is going on a family cruise or simply chilling at the sand bar. With ample accommodations on board for fishing, cruising and entertaining, the Sport series can adapt to your needs, whatever they may be.

Larger models in the Sport series also include comfortable cabins, a beautiful head and luxurious berths, wet bars and cooking amenities, the Sport series is ready to take you out for unforgettable weekend getaways.

With onboard facilities like these, the Sport series is aimed at almost any buyer. Whether you’re looking for a fishing machine that can later entertain friends for a sunset cruise, or a comfortable, smooth and safe boat for taking the kids out on day trips or to overnight somewhere beautiful, the Sport series is your ideal partner.


Things to Consider


The Sport series is a center console layout, which has its own benefits and considerations depending on where you do most of your boating.

We find that our customers in the south tend to prefer center consoles because it’s compatible with the generally warm and favorable weather conditions there. Customers who go boating further north, however, where temperatures can be much colder, tend to prefer models that offer more protection.


Dual Console

Pursuit Dual Console

The award-winning Pursuit Dual Console series takes a tried and tested concept - the classic bow rider - and perfects it.

Our Dual Console boats feature stylish, comfortable and innovative features engineered to deliver a perfect sport utility Dual Console fishing boat experience.

The Pursuit Dual Console range is available in a variety of lengths, from 24ft to 38ft offering single, dual or triple outboard Yamaha engine options. All of the boats in this series feature a wide walkway path through the center of the boat, through an opening door in the windshield granting access to the plush seating in the bow.

Pursuit Dual Console boats are excellent all-rounders. Developed with a variety of adventures in mind, they’re not simply a family cruiser or entertaining platform - although they do both of those excellently.

In fact, our customers have proven the awesome fishability of the Pursuit Dual Console Platform. Just ask Stanley Watts, the proud owner of ‘The Chieftain’, a 2020 Pursuit 295 Dual Console. We recently featured him here in our blog, where you can read all about his hardcore fishing adventures far offshore the east coast out of Lanoka Harbor, New Jersey. When Stanley isn’t fishing, he’s at the sandbar or entertaining family and friends onboard.

Whether you’re looking for a safe, fun and flexible family boating platform or a fishing platform with good all-round facilities and space, consider a Pursuit Dual Console series model.


Things to consider


The Pursuit Dual Console series offers a full-beam wraparound windscreen. In larger models, the windscreen extends up to a fiberglass hard top, offering full protection from the elements.

If that protection is important to you, then the Pursuit Dual Console series deserves your attention.

Bear in mind, however, that the deck layout means that the accommodation space below deck is more restricted in comparison to our other model series. But you can still look forward to a great head and a comfortable berth. 


Offshore Series

The Pursuit OS 445 Offshore

The Pursuit Offshore boat series combines the seaworthiness and fishability of the world’s top express and walkaround boats, with the luxury interior appointments of the most comfortable cruisers.

With boats ranging in length from 32ft to 46ft and offering both twin and triple outboard engine options, the Offshore series provides luxurious amenities and facilities designed to keep everyone onboard happy. Whether you’re heading far offshore in search of big game fishing, or simply spending the night onboard in a quiet cove, the Pursuit Offshore series packs the perfect combination of live aboard amenities, weather protection, climate control and open aft cockpit accommodations.


Who should buy a Pursuit Offshore Boat?

The simple answer here is: Anyone! The Offshore series is extremely versatile and is a true all-rounder.

Don’t just take it from us, either. We interviewed Mike Kappitt, COO of Subway and owner of an OS 385. Despite having owned multiple boats in the past, his Pursuit, ‘Nicer Order’ has hit all of the right notes. “Our boat has met our expectations in every way,” he said.

The Offshore series is perfect for all occasions, whether participating in a hardcore fishing competition out in the deep or quietly anchored outside your favorite bar or restaurant, the Pursuit Offshore series will carry you comfortably, stylishly and safely.
