The Pursuit 3000 Express was widely heralded as "a comfy cruiser and rugged fishing battlewagon rolled into one" by Boating World when she was introduced by premium builder Pursuit. Boating magazine chimed in: "top-quality construction materials, attention to detail, innovative mechanical systems and the classy brass-inlaid teak table put this boat into Gucci territory."
The aforementioned quality and attention to detail, by one of the very best boat builders anywhere in the world, results in a boat that withstands the rigors of use and time, and maintains not only its value, but its beauty and functionality. With her repowering in 2016, this 3000 Express is set to provide her next owners with years of safe, fun boating.
If the goal is nimble handling, economical operation and outstanding performance in a premium fishing and cruising boat, the Pursuit 3000 Express can fit the bill. Ruggedly built, with a modern hull design and a proper length-to-beam ratio, this boat delivers a smooth, dry ride, and great rough-weather performance. Like all Pursuits, a top priority in the design of the 3000 Express is fishability, but a great deal of emphasis has been placed on cruising comfort. There's a large double berth forward and the dinette converts to a 6-foot, 6-inch berth. The teak and holly solid-wood flooring, plus a solid teak-inlaid dinette table, contribute to luxury and livability. Up top, the 3000 Express has a wide-open cockpit with aft seating, making her suitable for entertaining as well as fishing. An oversized windshield provides protection from the elements and clear vision for navigation. And there's a long list of standard fishing features. Powered by twin gas engines, the 3000 Express is fully capable of fishing the far reaches of Catalina and local spots, or cruising the Channel Islands comfortably.
