Captain's ReportWhen it comes to the 27 foot center console class of boats, you’ll find a lot of manufacturers trying to replicate a select group of boats but using substandard materials and workmanship. One of the boats in this elite and small group of standard setters is the 2670 CC from Pursuit. The 2670 is a great offshore boat with a wide beam and high gunnels yet surprisingly light and agile hull. Based on the original “J” boat design from Pursuit, the new 2670 incorporates the finest and most up to date construction techniques and materials while utilizing some of the best outboard power plants on the market today.Powered by twin outboards, the 2670 has a closed transom with storage for a dive ladder. A tuna gate provides easy access to the integrated engine bracket/ dive platform and enables the boating of extremely large pelagics. The transom contains a deep 49-gallon livewell and a bait prep station in addition to bilge access. There’s a large fishbox in the floor and rod storage under each of the padded gunnels.The center console is well designed with all instrumentation, electronics, and controls perfectly placed. The walkways are wide too with high gunnels for added safety. Those with junior boaters or a white knuckle crew will appreciate this most. Forward of the console is a front bench seat with cooler beneath. Inside the console you’ll find dive tank storage and a CD player next to the breaker panel. The finish on the interior of the console is equivalent to that of the exterior…high quality gelcoat and well-designed storage areas.The cuddy contains a double berth, a marine head, storage and rod racks. While the 2670 is small in size, the cuddy is very roomy and could easily accommodate a pair of anglers for an overnight or weekend mission of fishin’. The main batteries are also accessible from an internal access hatch inside the cuddy. This is a welcome change for battery placement and makes the servicing or changing of batteries a not so unpleasant task.Access to the non-skidded foredeck is easy by way of integral steps that are well placed forward and flank each side of the cuddy entrance. There’s a ventilation hatch centered in the casting deck and even room for a windlass for easy anchoring using the molded bow pulpit with anchor chute and hawse pipe. The bow rails are low but would be unsightly if raised to knee level. With a 9’3” beam, overall length of 28’5” and a dry weight of 4500 pounds, the 2670 is an agile vessel that takes on rough water with confidence. Out on our test track we ran the 2670 to a top speed of 40.5mph at 5000 rpm with the pair of 150 Yamaha HPDI’s. The best cruise speed was determined to be 32.5mph at 4000 rpm burning 16.6 gallons per hour and generating a range of 352 miles. The 2670 is quick to plane too in only 4.6 seconds and a respectable 0-30 time of 6.5 seconds. And the 2670 can plane on one engine!Overall, the 2670 CC is a top shelf choice for those seeking a well built and refined 27- foot center consoler cuddy. Just one ride in this boat will reveal why Pursuit is such a respected name among anglers who know the difference between a good boat and a great boat and will leave you with a problem…you can’t drive this boat and then go buy something else.
