Pursuit brought this 30-plus-footer into its dual-console lineup, which includes a 235, 265 and 325, during February's Miami International Boat Show. The new luxury family-fishing boat features an integrated hardtop, laminated windshield and convertible seating arrangements.

For anglers, the boat comes with a 22-gallon recirculating, lighted livewell. Its pump is incorporated into a sea strainer with a seacock and through-hull fitting. Anglers will also find port and starboard insulated fish boxes, four vertical rod holders in the gunwales and four in the hardtop supports, and horizontal rod storage beneath the gunwales.

Comfort features include a 30-gallon freshwater tank powering a cockpit shower and centrally located freshwater connections, a transom door, a boarding ladder, a stereo system, LED lighting, and a molded entertainment center with sink, faucet, trash can, cup holders and cutting board.

In Yamaha’s performance tests, the 295 — powered by twin F300s — topped out at 52.5 mph, turning 5,950 rpm while attaining 1.01 mpg. The best cruising speed for this dual-console came in at 29.1 mph, turning 3,500 rpm for 1.62 mpg.
