Heavily built, beautifully styled, and expertly equippedthe Pursuit 285 Offshore is about as good as it gets these days in a midsize, high-end express. Like most Pursuits, shes built on a deep-V hull with moderate beam and a solid fiberglass bottom. The 285 is a very versatile boatprobably more fishing machine than family cruiser, but shell serve either purpose with luxury to spare. Standard features include an integral bow pulpit, fiberglass hardtop, aft rigging station with sink, cockpit bolsters, aft-facing cockpit seats, insulated fish box, 32-gallon livewell (under seat base), foldaway rear seat, transom shower, gunnel rod holders, fresh/raw-water washdowns, generator, cockpit rod storage, trim tabs, and ransom door. Note that the helm and companion pedestal seats swivel to face aft. In addition to the large cockpit, the spacious interior of the 285 Offshore includes an amidships berth, galley with sink and microwave, enclosed standup head with sink and shower, and a convertible dinette forward. Fit and finish is second to none. Twin Yamaha 250s top out at 40+ knots.
