Pursuit Boats has announced plans to deliver a Sport Yacht to market in the early fall of 2012.
“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 todays' marketplace,” Tom Slikkers, President, Pursuit Boats.
The all new Pursuit Sport Yacht will be in the mid-thirty-foot range and feature modern styling and manufacturing technologies powered exclusively by Yamaha outboards. The patent-pending
design will be revealed to the marketplace over the next few months, though an official name to the boat is not yet available. The new series will be given a name prior to its physical debut to consumers in
the early fall of 2012.
“New product is the lifeblood of any brand. We see the Sport Yacht market as a logical step in the growth
of our model lines and customer base. The new Sport Yacht series will be Pure Pursuit, consistent with the heritage of the company and luxury product associated with the brand,” George Hetzel, Vice President
Sales and Marketing.
