2017 Pursuit 235 DC Dual Console Boat Reviews
Boat Review by: Richard Crowder
After introducing two new dual console models in just the past two years, the DC 325 and the DC 295, Pursuitâ€™s DC 235 Dual Console is this Fort Pierce, Florida boat builderâ€™s latest dual console offering and the smallest of four such models.
Pursuit Boats, part of the S2 Yacht Group which includes Tiara Yachts of Holland, Michigan, offers a total of sixteen models of Offshore, Center Console, Sport (Center Console) from twenty-eight to forty-one feet including these four Dual Consoles, and one outboard-powered Sport Coupe express cruiser, the SC 365i.
Built on a brand new hull design which it shares with the C 238 Center Console, the DC 235 features high freeboard, bow flare, a molded one-piece deck and cockpit liner, plus twin integrated transom platform extensions outboard of the engine with center walk-across access ahead of the engine to facilitate watersports and fishing accessibility. Concealed within the starboard underside of this platform is a pull-out, flip-down telescopic, three-step boarding ladder.
A walk-thru transom door leads from the starboard side platform to the DC 235 cockpit. The articulating hinges on the two-person flip-down transom seat are connected with the transom coaming pad which then rises to a seatback when the seat is in use. On the transom is a lighted fifteen gallon recirculating livewell in oceana blue with a plexiglass lid.
On the port side of the cockpit is a unique rear-facing convertible lounge seat with storage below. The flip-over-and-down seatback converts this seat into a lounge, and with a filler cushion which fills in the end of this lounge to the transom creates an L-shaped lounge seat with the transom seat flipped-down.
Ahead of this seat is a fixed forward facing passenger seat and on the starboard side, a high-back, swivel, adjustable helm chair with forward flip-up bolster and flip-down armrests. Aft of the helm chair is a standard molded-in entertainment center with sink, pullout sprayer, cutting board, and insulated cooler with fibreglass lid.
A finished in-floor storage compartment between the helm and passenger seats is ideal for large items such as fishing rods and watersports accessories. Within the helm console is another compartment with dedicated storage and room for lots more. The passenger console incorporates the molded head compartment complete with porcelain toilet plus a sink with pullout cold water shower wand.
Through the high walk-thru windshield with its custom molded, resin infused, gelcoated frame are padded fronts of the two consoles allowing forward-facing lounging on the bow seats. Beneath each of these seat bottom cushions is a finished and insulated storage compartment. Beside each is in-coaming storage, USB charging port, plus recessed stainless steel grabrails and drinkholders, and up front, a flush-mounted integral anchor locker with fibreglass lid and complete with standard anchor, rode, and roller.
At the helm, a stainless steel wheel with hydraulic steering is standard as are auto-retract trim tabs with indicators. A 12-volt power outlet is provided as is a dual USB charging port. Power for the DC 235 is available from either a 250 or 300 horsepower Yamaha outboard. With the Yamaha F300, Pursuitâ€™s test results show optimum cruising speed of 31 mph at 4000 RPM yielding a 235 mile range and with a top speed of 47 mph.
Other notable standard equipment includes floatation foam filled infused fibreglass structural stringer grid system with molded fibreglass finish, cockpit raw water outlet with quick-connect 25-foot hose, LED cockpit lighting, and four stainless steel rod holders.
Notable optional equipment includes your decision to go with SunbrellaÂ® canvas covering in four colour choices of a bimini top with connector panel and side curtains plus aft or drop curtain, or choose the resin-infused, vacuum-bagged fibreglass hardtop complete with connector panel and side curtains plus aft or drop curtain.
Then you can further choose bow, engine, and instrument covers, several hull and bootstripe colour choices, a white painted engine, Garmin GPSMAP 7612 XSV chartplotter, tilt steering, anchor windlass, blue LED accent lighting, underwater lighting, stereo, bow table with filler cushion, transom rod holders, ski-tow pylon, and if you choose the hardtop, you can then further choose spreader lights, rod rack, and outriggers.
As Pursuit says of its new model, â€œThe fastest growing segment of the marine marketplace deserves a quality new entry at a competitive price,â€ and â€œA single dependable Yamaha F250 delivers consistent performance for a variety of water sports from board sports to cruising and fishing.â€

The DC235 is the smallest, entry level member of Pursuit’s Dual Console fleet, which includes the DC 265, DC 295, DC 325 and the all new DC 365, which is the impressive flagship of this sorority. But the standard features and amenities of the compact DC 235 dual console make her anything but an entry-level player. She is loaded with all the right things in all the right places, but also includes an options list that allows owners to totally personalize their ride and their experience out on the water.
The Pursuit DC 235 has her act together and is an impressive family entertainment center for any of your waterborne activities. The full height transom bulkhead will keep following seas on the outside of the cockpit and allows room for a compact 15-gallon recirculating livewell tucked in the port corner and a transom gate set in the opposite side. A fold-down double wide aft bench adds welcome crew seating that stows into the transom bulkhead when not in use. The port side lounge seat features a unique engineering design that provides both a cushioned forward-facing bench with footrest and handrail, in addition to an aft-facing convertible seat with a neat flip-out extension that expands it into a convenient sun lounge setup, with a roomy storage area down below and access to a dedicated battery panel. The captain’s helm seat is adjustable fore-and-aft to accommodate operators of all shapes and sizes and features a swivel mount, with integrated armrests and a flip-up seat/back bolster. The entertainment center set into a fiberglass module positioned just abaft of the helm seat offers a freshwater sink with pull-out sprayer, a poly cutting board, plus an insulated cooler capped off with a sturdy fiberglass lid.
A convenient flush hatch built into the cockpit sole set between the helm seats opens to reveal ample storage for skis, boards, fishing rods or whatever else you might have in mind for a fun family day out on the water. The port console offers a wide hinged opening to allow for easy transit down to the enclosed head area, with integrated storage, a molded headliner, a porcelain freshwater sink and manual head with 13-gallon holding tank, plus a 12-volt interior light. Moving forward through the opening center windshield and hinged doorway, the bow area includes twin bench seats with insulated storage below for your catch of the day or to keep additional gear dry and out from underfoot. An integrated anchor locker includes an anchor chute, 14-lb plow style anchor, 150-feet of rode and dedicated eight-inch cleat. A six-pack of eight-inch stainless steel pop-up cleats in the bow, stern and amidships makes dockside tie-ups a breeze. The helm features a dedicated spot to flush-mount a 12-inch multifunction display, with a compass, hydraulic steering and a handy breaker panel for your accessories.
Standard power on the Pursuit DC 235 is a Yamaha F250 V-6 four stroke outboard. If you want to enhance her performance even more, you can opt for the F300, which represents the max number of sea ponies you can hitch to her transom. Spinning a 17-inch pitch SWSII three-blade stainless steel prop, the DC 235 will hit a top speed of over 47-mph with three crew onboard, achieving her most fuel efficient cruising speed at 4000rpm, where this Florida gal will hit 31.1-mph on the GPS Nav, drinking 12.5-gallons per hour, for a net of 2.49-mpg. If you need to get to a hot bite pronto or are late to a beachside rendezvous, advancing the electronic throttle up to 4500 revs will turn 36.6-mph at 15.6-gph, for a bottom line of 2.35-mpg, so there is a minimal fuel consumption penalty for traveling in the fast lane. I have been on the center console version of Pursuit’s latest 23-foot/21-degree aft deadrise hull and it’s a smooth operator, producing excellent top end and cruising speeds, with welcome stability at rest and is relatively dry when underway. Her 105-gallon poly fuel tank will allow you to cruise to your favorite family fishing or entertainment spots over the course of a long weekend, plus enjoy water sports from sunup to sundown without needing to refuel. The swim platform extensions port and starboard aft are a nice touch and will allow easy egress and reentry when hitting the breach or coming back onboard. The fit and finish on this dual console is typical Pursuit quality and she will definitely turn some heads down at the marina. Notable standard features include LED Nav lighting, a high-tech hull with vinylester resin, a 3-ply resin-infused composite transom, fiberglass structural grid system, basic foam floatation, trim tabs with LED indicators and auto-retract feature and much more.
