Pursuit OS 385 Walkthrough: The Ultimate Offshore Fishing Boat. Find out why the OS 385 is one of the best offshore fishing boats on the market
The Pursuit OS 385 is one of the most popular models of the Pursuit fleet of premium offshore boats, and for good reason. Packed with fishing features for every saltwater sportsman, and engineered for offshore fishing fun for the whole family, the OS 385 is ready to take your offshore adventures to a whole new level of excitement, enjoyment and luxury.
Join us for this exclusive Pursuit OS 385 walkthrough and find out why this blue water fishing machine deserves to be on your short list.
The king of the offshore fishing boats
We love center console boats as much as you do. In fact, our Pursuit Sports series of center console boats are some of the best boats available on the market. Center Consoles offer a ton of benefits and they are understandably popular as fishing platforms or simply for cruising with the family. But the Pursuit OS 385 takes everything that people love about center console boats, and turns the volume up to 11.
Room for everyone
The sheer size of the Pursuit OS 385 already puts it in a league of its own. Featuring a length overall of 39'2" (11.94 meters) and a beam of 13' (3.96 meters), there's plenty of space for you and your family or crew to have fun without getting in each others' way.
Seating is well taken care of, too. The cockpit, helm and cabin are treated to Pursuit's famously luxurious upholstery, carefully laid out to ensure that the cockpit and helm area form two distinct entertainment spaces. All of the upholstery on our exterior seat bases is manufactured using Dri-Fast Foam with a mesh backing for quick, easy drying.
You'll find that kind of thoughtful, intelligent design throughout the OS 385, from the bow to the stern. It's one of the reasons why the Offshore range of Pursuit boats are top contenders in the offshore fishing boat market.
Fishability for that big offshore catch
The OS 385 combines the seaworthiness and fishability of the world's top convertible and express boat models, with the luxury of elegant yacht design, including luxurious interior appointments normally only found on the world's most comfortable cruising boats.
The offshore fishing enthusiast is well taken care of with ample fishing features all over the boat, like built-in stainless steel rod holders, a recirculating 50gal live well, plenty of fish boxes - both refrigerated or just insulated - as well as loads of rod storage, including convenient lockable rod storage space in the gunwale.
If the rod holders fitted standard aren't enough for your needs, we offer outriggers with 18' deluxe telescoping aluminum poles as optional. While some offshore boats might stop there, our options list even allows new buyers to specify a 20' premium outrigger kit with carbon fiber poles.
Unrivaled hull design & Handcrafted Fiberglass
Boasting a repertoire of hull features aimed at ensuring durability, efficiency, and safety, the Pursuit OS 385 delivers an unmatched boating experience that consistently surpasses expectations.
The quality of the Pursuit OS 385's hull begins with its engineering. The boat’s revolutionary infused fiberglass structural grid system incorporates a molded finish and an integrated bilge water management system, ensuring superior stability and robustness.
The Pursuit OS 385’s structural grid is foam-filled for additional sound-deadening and peace of mind.
The whole hull of the boat is hand laminated with vinyl ester and polyester resins and engineered fabrics for the best possible product.
Back at the transom, we have engineered a five-ply resin-infused transom system reinforced by our patented transom reinforcement grid. This innovative design further strengthens the boat, adding to its overall durability and performance.
When you buy a Pursuit OS 385, one of the first features you'll notice is the premium high-gloss surfaces on the boat.
Every Pursuit OS 385 leaves the factory with our Fresh White gelcoat as standard, but five other hull colors are offered as options for buyers of new boats, including Carbon (dark grey), Neptune grey (light grey), Gulf Stream Blue (blue grey), Flag blue (navy blue), and Arctic blue (light blue).
The exceptionally high-quality gelcoat on Pursuit offshore boats easily sets them apart from many other fishing boats. Featuring a luster more commonly found on yachts and superyachts, buying a Pursuit boat ensures that you have a great time on the water and look fantastic while doing it, too.
The finishing on Pursuit boats is so robust that we provide an industry-leading transferable warranty to new buyers, including those of our Offshore fishing boats.
In particular, you can enjoy the peace of mind offered by our comprehensive Pursuit Protection Plan. We stand behind the unimpeachable quality of our boats with a five-year hull and deck structural warranty, affirming our confidence in their resilience and longevity.
You can venture forth into azure expanses on any Pursuit boat without any worries, as our promise also includes a five-year blister-free warranty, safeguarding the elegance of your craft's exterior. Additionally, a two-year bow-to-stern limited warranty offers an extra layer of assurance, a testament to our commitment to customer satisfaction and our confidence in our engineering.
The OS 385 wouldn't be one of the best offshore fishing boats without its awesome galley below decks. We've worked hard to ensure that the galley on this boat includes everything that hungry anglers and famished boaters need to keep the rods powered up and the cruising smooth.
Meal prep and washing up is made a breeze with a stainless steel sink with a pressurized hot & cold mixer, set into a luxurious Corian countertop with edge lighting. The nearby 240V Dual Burner glass cooktop with touch controls and pop-up pot holders is the perfect tool for preparing delicious gourmet meals.
Unlike many other offshore fishing boats, in the OS 385 you're spoilt for choice with cooking equipment because the OS 385 includes a 120V 1.1 cubic foot stainless steel-faced microwave oven as well.
Dedicated storage for plates, cups and utensils has been carefully allocated around the boat to ensure that everything you need while cooking and serving, falls easily to hand.
The OS 385's galley also features a 7.5 cubic foot refrigerator and freezer unit, to keep your fish fresh and ready for the next meal.
And then, when the day's fishing is done, the captain and crew can retire to the boat's super comfortable cabin below deck.
Ample storage is available via beautiful hardwood veneer cabinets featuring hardwood trim. A lower storage cabinet with maple drawers is included for cutlery and smaller items, while the galley upper storage cabinet with doors is available for general use.
Great offshore boats need a great bed
Offshore fishing boats are not often associated with great sleeping arrangements, but the OS 385 is not like other boats.
Featuring sleeping capacity for four people across two double beds, the Pursuit OS 385's accommodation below deck ensures that everyone on the boat can get some rest after a hard day of offshore fishing, cruising or doing whatever you and your friends love to do out on the water.
In the bow, a plush V-berth comfortably sleeps two adults, while drawers below the bed offer ample convenient storage for personal belongings and bedding.
A-head of the offshore game
Let's be honest: the head on board many offshore boats often feels like an uncomfortable, cramped afterthought. But not so on this boat.
The head compartment on board the OS 385 features a vacuum flush marine head connected to an eighteen-gallon holding tank and a macerator discharge pump, ensuring that wastewater can be safely discharged from the bronze thru-hull fitting whenever legal and safe to do so. Where waste must be pumped out, a stainless steel deck pump-out fitting is pre-installed as well.
A fiberglass toilet seat cover completes the experience in the full-height head compartment.
The head also offers a shower with a molded-in fiberglass shower seat and an acrylic shower door. Anglers love to take a shower after a long day of catching sport fish, and the comfortable shower onboard the OS 385 is the perfect solution.
Wash away the smell of bait and fish in our designer sink with a pressurized hot/cold faucet fitted to a beautiful Corian countertop.
The transom of every new Pursuit OS 385 features triple Yamaha F300 outboards as standard. Owners can look forward to a cruising speed of 32.1MPH at 4000 RPMs, while consuming 35.9 GPH.
The F300 outboards come standard with Yamaha’s class-leading Digital Electric Steering (DES) and Helm Master EX Full Maneuverability package that includes Joystick Control and Integrated Autopilot.
With these outboards, the OS 385 has a range of approximately 283 miles and an impressive top speed of 49.2 MPH. Enough to get the boat to the fish quickly, safely and reliably.
The Pursuit OS 385 is the perfect fishing boat or family boat or both, as it offers a variety of amenities including an enclosed wheelhouse, an impressive beam and comfortable accommodations.
