Offshore Pursuit

PURSUIT’S OS345 is one serious offshore fishing boat.

Measuring 11.09m LOA with a 3.65m beam, this bluewater battlewagon is slightly longer and wider than the OS335 (the best-selling model in Pursuit’s history) it replaces. Featuring an expansive cockpit for fighting fish and alarge cabin for overnighting, the OS345 is brand new from hull to decks to interior.

The express design includes an open helm with optional bridge deck air conditioning and an aft canvas enclosure to escape the elements. This layout also affords quick access from the helm to the cockpit. The helm itself offers space to mount multiple large-screen GPS/sonar/radar displays, binnacle-mount throttle controls and other switches, and incorporates a custom bolster-style skipper seat and portside L-shaped companion lounge. This area is protected from the elements by a stylish, infused fibreglass windshield with tempered safety glass and electrically-actuated ventilating centre window.

The self-draining (with scuppers) cockpit houses two insulated 150L fish boxes, while stainless steel cockpit toe railsand padded quick-dry coamings will ensure a comfortable fighting position when hooked-up to big fish. The heavy-duty transom door provides easy access to and from the boat, be it for boarding or dragging a fish onboard.

Rated to carry up to twin 350hp outboards (700hp), the OS345’s wave-slicing 20° deadrise hull and massive 1290L fuel tank combine to deliver serious long-range offshore performance. Standard bow thrusters will also give anyone the confidence to dock in close quarters, wind or strong currents.

Building functional inshore and offshore fishing boats for 60 years,Pursuit is renowned the world over for its superior construction, fit andfinish, durability and uncompromising quality. Pursuit currently builds four ranges: Offshore (23′-37′), Centre Console (20′-31′), Dual Console (26′) and Sport (28′-31′).
