Pursuit SPursuit Boats recently debuted their new S 368 in Fort Pierce, Florida to local marine media representatives. The S 368 joins the Sport family that includes the popular and well-received S 408 and S 328 models consecutively introduced over the last two Miami International Boat Shows. Pursuit’s engineering teams have developed a winning formula and delivered three exciting new products in just 16 months.

On deck, distinct social zones in the bow area, at the helm and aft in the cockpit give plenty of room for family and friends to find their own space. A forward sunpad and teak table attractively accommodate entertaining.

For serious fishing, a wide-open cockpit features all the amenities needed for a great day on the water, including a 24-gallon live well, 2 large in-floor fishboxes and plenty of storage for rods to lures and everything in between. A mezzanine seat is engineered at the perfect height to watch your baits skip along in the spread. When you’re finished fishing, a fold-away transom seat may be deployed to entertain dockside.

“We are excited about the continued expansion of our Sport series line after the success and popularity of the S 408 and the S 328. Pursuit remains true to its history of innovative luxury fishing boats that embody timeless style, durability and performance,” Bruce Thompson, President, Pursuit Boats.

Expect the S 368 to cruise at 32 MPH while turning 4000 RPM rigged with standard power, triple Yamaha F 300s. Optional Yamaha F 350s may also be installed if you wish to push this model a little faster.


The new S 368 will deliver superior performance and fishability combined with amenities that provide comfortable cruising; learn more at www.pursuitboats.com.
