This is a solid opportunity to own and sail a living legend that could be kept up as she has been for the past 60 years for sailing in the bay, or completely restored. As an "M-Class yacht, she has the grace, style and dignity of a "J Class" yacht, but is slightly smaller and more manageable.

Conceived by Sterling Burgess and built by Abeking and Rasmussen, "Pursuit" began her career at the New York Yacht Club in the 1930’s as “Avatar” competing against Harold Vanderbilt’s “Prestige” and “Barlevento”, ”Simba”, “Valiant”, "Istalena" and “Windward”, forming the  M-Class. As elegant and as charismatic in every sense as the J-Class, whose development they clearly influenced, although slightly smaller and therefore more practical to own and operate. 

Pursuit gained notoriety on the West Coast when she was owned by Burt Lancaster and his movie-producing partner, and won the 1948 Ensenada race. Since then she has been raced and cruised to Hawaii, Mexico and the West Coast, and has been preserved in good condition with new rigging and impeccable brightwork in her slip on Sausalito City water front by the same owner, a San Francisco Bay Area legend himself, for almost 60 years.
