Sail-World.com : Hot on the trail of Pursuit fishing boats

Hot on the trail of Pursuit fishing boats

'The C280 can handle up to twin 250hp outboards for blistering offshore performance'    Sandman PR    Click Here to view large photo

When America sneezes the rest of the world supposedly catches a cold, but for some reason the ‘number-one selling, outboard-powered fishing boat brand in the US’ has somehow slipped under Australia’s radar … until now.

The centre console could almost be confused for a bowrider. -  Sandman PR  

Pursuit Boats will make its Australian debut at the 2011 Sydney International Boat Show running July 28 to August 1, with a C280 centre console being displayed by importer Graaf Marine on the d’Albora Marinas exhibit.

Supporting the launch will be Pursuit Boats vice president Paul Perry, who is flying over from the factory at Fort Pierce, Florida.

Graaf Marine director Rob de Graaf said the factory support for Pursuit’s launch at Australia’s largest boat show was testament to the brand commitment.

‘The boats are built incredibly strong, are impeccably finished and are very capable offshore, which makes them ideal for Australian conditions,’ de Graaf said.

‘All Pursuit boats are purpose-built for serious inshore and offshore fishing, yet there’s no compromise on luxury.’

The Pursuit C280 on show in Sydney is rigged with twin Honda BF225 outboards and combines serious offshore fishability with creature comforts not typically found in hard-core centre consoles.

The 24-degree deadrise hull and massive 830 litre fuel tank combine to deliver serious offshore performance.

It has the space and comfort to take friends along for the ride -  Sandman PR  

The helm area offers ample space for multiple large-screen GPS/sonar/radar displays and other control panels and switches, while the skipper and companion get flip-up bolster-style seats to allow sitting or standing.

Live bait is close to hand and given the royal treatment -  Sandman PR  

In the helm seat base is a 200 litre recirculating livewell and the transom accommodates a fully-functional rigging station with removable tackle drawers, cutting surface and moulded tool holders. A hinged transom door in the portside corner provides easy access to and from the vessel – and is wide enough to haul a good-size tuna aboard.

There are three fishboxes (2 x 110 litre and 1 x 170 litre) to ensure a large catch is kept in peak condition, while beneath the deck a 75 litre freshwater tank will provide enough water for an action-packed trip.

Note the fold-away lounge and easy access to the boarding platform -  Sandman PR  

The stern seat quickly folds flush to the transom on arrival at the fishing grounds to create a large and uncluttered cockpit and the coamings are comfortably padded.

The Pursuit C280’s split bow configuration offers additional seating, with cavernous storage beneath the seat cushions and via a hatch in the deck, as well as unobstructed bow access for docking or moving around the boat when fighting big fish.
