Pursuit Boats releases sport yacht specs


Pursuit Boats released the preliminary specifications of its new Yamaha-powered Sport Yacht, which the company expects to display this fall at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

SPECIFICATIONS: LOA: 41 feet, 2 inches BEAM: 12 feet, 6 inches DISPLACEMENT: 17,000 pounds ENGINES: Yamaha (to be announced) TRANSOM DEADRISE: 20 degrees TANKAGE: 275 gallons fuel, 75 gallons water, 25 gallons waste

The 36 Sport Yacht is the first offering in this market for Pursuit, which is owned by S2 Yachts, the builder of the Tiara brand. Pursuit is known for its center console, walkaround and express fishing boats.

“As a company known for delivering luxury models, our experience and design resources compliment this market niche,” S2 Yachts vice president sales and marketing George Hetzel said in a statement.

The Pursuit Sport Yacht measures 41 feet, 2 inches overall because of its stern platform and outboard package, S2 Yachts marketing director David Glenn told Trade Only Today.

Pursuit will continue to periodically release information about the yacht until FLIBS, said Glenn.

“We want to really keep consumers interested,” Glenn said. “We want to keep them excited about what we are doing along the whole course of the product development, as opposed to making one announcement, until the product comes out. We are trying to keep a body of customers engaged.”

Next up will be the release of performance data, said Glenn.
