Pursuit Boats announced today plans to deliver a sport yacht powered exclusively by Yamaha Outboards to market in the early fall of 2012.

The all-new Pursuit sport yacht will be in the mid-30-foot range and feature modern styling and manufacturing technologies. The patent-pending design will be revealed to the marketplace during the next few months through a series of visual and print elements delivered online through the Pursuit website, social media outlets, online boating portals and traditional publications.

The new series will be given a name prior to its physical debut to consumers in the early fall, the company said.

“Our goal is to leverage our strengths in design, engineering and manufacturing, along with our reputation for delivering the finest in outboard-powered fiberglass boats. We see an opportunity to bring new technologies to the sport yacht market, giving customers distinct advantages in performance and fuel efficiencies not available in today’s marketplace,” Pursuit president Tom Slikkers said in a statement.

Pursuit Boats is a division of Holland, Mich.-based S2 Yachts, which also produces Tiara Yachts.
