Pursuit DC266 (2020-)

w/ 2 x 200-hp Yamaha F200



Brief Summary

The Pursuit DC266 dual console is a premium build and combines the best qualities of an open offshore fishing boat with a family-friendly cruiser. Pursuit has designed her to be a good boat for entertaining by creating two fold-out seats in the cockpit, coupled with the swiveling helm seat and the companion seats that make places for seven people. In the port console is an electric head and there is an adult sitting room, something not found on most boats in class. This specific Pursuit DC266 has been carefully outfitted with a joystick, power steering, forward and aft sun awnings, full electronics, a Siren 24/7 monitoring system, and full cruising canvas that makes the cockpit and bridge deck dry and cozy. Her twin 200-hp Yamaha engines give her a top speed of 49 mph.

Her cruising range is about 306 statute miles at 27.7 mph. Her 21-degree deadrise at the transom is a good compromise between efficiency and riding comfort.

A livewell, rod holders and rod racks let her fish, and a bridle and tow line are aboard for tow sports. The hardtop and flush toilet are just a few of the amenities.
