When Pursuit designs a new boat, it considers every angle of fishability, then it wraps those attributes in luxury, performance and style. Founder Leon Slikkers has been doing that since building his first boats in his garage in 1950. With that kind of experience at the helm, it’s no wonder owners like Pursuits for their speed and agility, love them for their quality, and revere them for the way they pamper crew members all day long on the water.
Design, construction and style are applauded as well, survey responses show. What’s more, though comments acknowledge the premium price category, respondents marked Pursuit high for value, proof that quality is the better bargain.
Quality is inherent in features like infused fiberglass windshield frames that integrate tempered glass for a sleek, seamless look. Curved windshields flow with the lines of the boat.
Safety is still another attribute of importance, and Pursuit owners trust in it aboard their boats. High, flaring bows deflect nasty seas and spray.
In nearly 65 years of boatbuilding, the Slikkers have learned what it takes to care for their owners. Our survey respondents gave consistently high scores for the reputation of the brand; its established dealer network, resale value and customer service attest to it. This combination of top-tier performance in survey categories that push beyond the basics of boat speed and features establishes Pursuit as a high-value investment in owners’ eyes.
The OS 325 is made for bold anglers with big game in mind. An aft-swept windshield frame adds dramatic flair to the express-style fisher and blends with the lines. The hardtop is securely bonded to the windshield and supported aft by coated–aluminum laddered supports. Bow rails are high should the fight take you forward or anchoring conditions require a balancing handhold.
Beneath the deck is an opulent living area, boasting solid-wood trim and rich tones complemented by lush upholstery. For the skipper, there’s a beefy bucket seat with foldaway armrests and plenty of support through the shoulders. Flip up the bolster for stand-up driving. It will be easy to see the dock and easier still to meet it with a gentle kiss thanks to an optional bow thruster or Yamaha’s Helm Master joystick steering. The skipper won’t be alone, either, because the best seating in the house is near him in wraparound -fashion, spanning the passenger console, the port coamings and the forward side of the mezzanine cockpit seat.
The mezzanine boasts a tackle- and bait-prep area that can be optioned up with a smoker grill for seaside entertaining.
The cockpit can be -hard-core fishing or cruising comfortable. Simply flip out the transom seat or stow it as your pleasure dictates.
All these features are fluidly designed for sleek, durable beauty and long-lasting value, something that is bound to keep scores for quality and value high among boaters for years on end.
