Pursuit’s C280 bluewater battlewagon

GRAAF Marine, Australasian importer of the US-built Pursuit Boats, has taken delivery of its first C280.

Measuring 8.53m LOA with a 2.92m beam, the Pursuit C280 combines the ultimate in offshore fishability with creature comforts not typically found in hardcore centre console fishing machines.

The expansive helm area offers ample space to mount multiple large-screenGPS/sonar/radar displays and other control panels and switches, while the skipper and companion flip-up bolster-style seats ensure comfortable operation whether sitting or standing.

In the helm seat base is a 200L recirculating livewell for keeping livebaits healthy during a long day chasing billfish or other pelagic species, and incorporated in the transom is a fully-functional rigging station with removable tackle drawers, cutting surface and moulded tool holders. A hinged transom door in the portside corner provides easy access to and from the vessel – and is wide enough to haul a good sized tuna onboard.

Two 110L in-deck fish boxes are insulated to ensure ice lasts longer and are plumbed for easy drainage, while beneath the deck a 75L freshwater tank will provide enough water for an action-packed trip. There’s an additional 170L insulated fishbox built into the transom for even more cool storage.

Rated to carry twin 250hp outboards (500hp), the C280’s wave-slicing 24 degrees deadrise hull and massive 830L fuel tank combine to deliver serious long-range offshore performance.
