Three Reasons Why the S 358 Sport is Best in its Class
The Pursuit S 358 is our first-ever 35-foot center console boat and, in celebration of the achievements that the team has made with the design and engineering of this boat, today we’re giving you the three reasons why the Pursuit S 358 Sport is the best in its class.
We know that Pursuit customers love their families, their boats and making memories with their families out on the water. Whether it’s fishing, socializing or simply going out for a cruise, the Pursuit S 358 Sport is designed to offer all of the features that you and your family could want or need to be comfortable and have fun on the water.
Fully enclosed, private head in a beautiful cabin
One of the most unique and beneficial features onboard the Pursuit S 358 Sport that makes it best in its class, is its private, fully-enclosed head compartment.
This is an extremely rare feature that you will struggle to find on competitor boats, assuming you can find it at all. According to us, the enclosed head on the Pursuit S 358 Sport is the only boat in this size with an enclosed head.
But the Pursuit S 358 Sport’s bathroom features so much more than just a head. Below deck, you’ll find everything that you and your family will need for a comfortable, practical day on the water.
Inside the head, there’s a Corian vanity with a sink and a pull-out shower for a great wash after a long day. There’s also an opening window, to allow for fresh air.
The porcelain Vacuflush toilet features a macerator as well, for maximum useability and convenience.
Exiting the head, you’ll find one of the Pursuit S 358 Sport’s most exciting areas: The cabin.
The entire cabin has received the kind of precise, luxury yacht-like treatment that Pursuit Boats are known for. Luxurious wood paneling abounds and it highlights thoughtful touches like a 27-inch TV opposite a small settee, as well as a microwave, an opening portlight, and extra-wide entry steps for added safety and convenience.
Up in the bow, the Pursuit S 358 sport features a pair of bench seats with a high/low table that easily converts into a bed, for comfortable overnight adventures.
And an independent 6000 BTU air conditioning system keeps the cabin comfy, even during the hottest evenings in the Bahamas.
With all of these features and high-quality finishes, it’s no surprise that the Pursuit S 358 Sport has been described as delivering a virtually unmatched, best in class level of appeal.
Unbeatable deck space versatility
Whether you’re fishing or socializing, spending time with the family or entertaining friends or colleagues, the Pursuit S 358 Sport’s deck spaces are designed with our world-famous ‘functional versatility’ at the top of the priority list, and they include everything you could need no matter the occasion.
But don’t just take it from us. Florida Sportsman described the Pursuit S 358 Sport as ‘taking comfort to the next level’. Here’s why:
Starting in the bow, luxurious seating to port and starboard includes actuated backrests for comfortable lounging while underway, as well as remote controls for the crystal clear JL Audio stereo. In front of the console, a double lounger with adjustable backrests and fold-down armrests ensures the greatest comfort and luxury.
At anchor or at the marina, the bow and console seating easily convert into a comfortable dining space around an electrically actuated bow table. An optional Mediterranean-style sun shade supported by removable carbon fiber poles is available to cover the bow area when you need a break from the sun. It stores safely out of sight in its own dedicated storage area when not in use.
Back in the cockpit, once you’re done fishing, you can quickly and easily prepare and grill your catch at the large entertainment center behind the helm seating. It includes a grill, a refrigerator, an insulated cooler box, a faucet and other accessories. When the entertainment center isn’t in use, the Pursuit S 358 Sport has another luxurious feature: Plush, split mezzanine seating that unfolds into the cockpit.
Meanwhile, coaming boxes to port and starboard include storage racks to keep the deck neat and clear of rods, gaffs and fenders.
Best in class fishing facilities
The Pursuit S 358 Sport is an unbeatable fishing machine with best in class fishing facilities to satisfy even the most demanding fishermen.
In the cockpit, the transom offers a 32-gallon livewell, 12 stainless steel rod holders, tackle storage and insulated fish boxes to both port and starboard. The more serious fisherman can even opt for Taco Grand Slam 390 18’ or 20’ outriggers.
A side-opening door, with a removable boarding ladder, is standard on the starboard side, to help you get that big catch on board, or to make it easier to go diving, swimming or even just to step aboard from the dock.
A full electronics suite from world-leader Garmin will help you find and stay on the fish, and outboard power from twin Yamaha 425 XTOs will get you there quickly, effortlessly and reliably, with Sport Fishing Mag measuring a 51 mph top speed and the 0 to 30mph sprint in 15 seconds.
Speaking of getting there, the S 358 Sport’s triple helm seating has received the full luxury Pursuit treatment, with plush upholstery that includes folding armrests and flip-up bolsters. The captain’s seat additionally includes fore, aft and vertical adjustability. The wheel, throttles and all of the electronics fall easily to hand, making for a comfortable, enjoyable ride, no matter the conditions.
Whether you’re competing in a major fishing tournament or taking the family out for a fun day on the water, the Pursuit S 358 Sport is the best in its class and in this article, we looked at some of the reasons why we’re able to make such a bold claim.
The cabin was the first area we focused on, with a particular highlight on the fully enclosed, private head. Its Corian vanity and shower are the kinds of luxuries not typically found on a boat of this size.
The cabin includes seating that easily converts into a berth, while a 27-inch TV provides entertainment. Windows to port and starboard allow plenty of natural light in. Air conditioning provides extra comfort and all around the interior, it’s finished to super yacht levels.
The deck on the Pursuit S 358 Sport is another major highlight that we looked at, with a level of versatility that truly makes it the best in class.
Featuring luxurious seating in both the bow and cockpit and various dining options that include a full entertainment center featuring a grill and food preparation equipment, the Pursuit S 358 deck comfortably caters for entertainment just as well as hardcore fishing.
Fishing, of course, is a central theme of the Pursuit S 358 Sport and even the most hardcore fishing fans will feel right at home with the facilities on deck. These include 12 rod holders, advanced Garmin electronics, a large livewell, tackle storage, substantial fish boxes, and a pair of Yamaha 425 XTO V8 outboards to get you to your favorite fishing grounds quickly and reliably.
