Pursuit 2870 Center Console Captain's Report

The 2870’s offshore brawn is exemplified by her pronounced topside flair, which guarantees a dry boat even when pounding through a sloppy chop, and her extremely sharp entry culminating in a wave-slicing 22-degree transom deadrise.

Recognizing that all your time offshore isn’t spent tending your tackle, the 2870 offers an honest forward cabin, rather than the cuddy you might expect. The V-berth with its filler cushion will sleep two comfortably. There’s an enclosed head and the galley includes a portable butane stove, sink with pressure water and an ice box. Two opening, screened aluminum port lights provide light and fresh air.

When you are out there going for the gold, the standard Pursuit Plus transom package helps by including a stern bait and tackle rigging station with fresh and raw water connections and a 44-gallon fishbox, as well as an aft sink and transom shower. A pair of insulated cooler/fishboxes under the seats and a circulating livewell under the leaning post is also standard. Of course you expect standard hydraulic steering, and you have it, as well as a workboat-like 16” custom-cast aluminum steering wheel. This new Pursuit 2870 Offshore is definitely a fishing boat for all seasons.
