Pursuit S 368 Sport

With the introduction of the S 368 Sport, Pursuit is placing another bet on the ever-expanding, 30-foot-and-over center console market. The S 368 Sport joins two other relatively fresh 30-plus-footers — the S 328 Sport and S 408 Sport — in the Florida builder’s lineup.

Lots of seating, enclosed cabins and other comfort-oriented features are expected on high-end center consoles, and the S 368 has them. At the bow, a U-shaped lounge converts to a dining space with a drop-in teak table. Just abaft it (forward of the console unit) is a chaise lounge for two.

The cockpit has flip-out transom seating and an aft-facing lounge with a teak table abaft the helm chairs. A clever, slide-out electric grill is under the helm seating. Hidden beneath the console is a cabin with a microwave, a two person berth that converts to a sofa, rod stowage and an enclosed head.

Owners who are inclined to wet a line will find twin 45-gallon insulated fishboxes, a transom-mounted live well, transom-mounted tackle drawers, under-gunwale rod stowage and hardtop rocket launcher rod stowage, as well as room for multifunction displays at the helm. Mounting plates and wiring are built-in for port and starboard downriggers.

Pursuit powers the S 368 Sport with a trio of Yamaha F300 4-stroke outboards. Jostling the throttles all the way open results in a 0-to-17-knot time of only 4.94 seconds. Keep the throttles mashed down, and the Pursuit will gallop to a top end of 43 knots. Anglers headed to the canyons or other offshore destinations can cruise around 22 knots with fuel economy of 26.2 gph. (That’s about 0.98 mpg.) Triple 350-hp Yamaha F350s are available as an option.
