Sitting at the dock in Clearwater, Florida, the Pursuit OS 355 ‘s cockpit seemed low-riding and kind of sporty compared to the high hardtop and forward section over the cabin. But running out in the 2-foot Gulf chop, it was clear that Pursuit’s intent was to maximize usability across every section — cockpit, hardtop and cabin.

The OS 355’s modified-V hull form blew through the waves, reaching a 41-knot top speed in less-than-ideal conditions. Powered by twin Yamaha F350 outboards, the hull felt solid in tight turns and took beam seas without flinching.

The helm deck has a stainless-steel handrail along the hardtop, a helm seat that swivels 180 degrees and a drop-down step under the wheel for the helmsman who wants an extra 8 inches of height.

This vessel has a multiuse cockpit too. Lounges fold down into a U shape, there is a drop-in table, and an electric Makefast sun awning slides out of the hardtop, creating a social environment.

41 KNOTS

With a pair of twin Yamaha F350 outboards, the OS 355 burns 57.6 gph at top speed. The sweet spot falls between 15 knots and 24 knots, with a consumption rate of 21.9/29.6 gph, respectively.

FISHING-FRIENDLY

In-sole fish boxes with macerators, a 28-gallon livewell, a freezer and rocket launchers should please avid anglers.

SIBLING

The OS 325 has the same features as her larger sister, with the shared elements making these two Pursuits the next-generation Offshore models in the line. The 325 also shares a hard-charging, modified-V hull with outboard capacity of 600 hp to reach the canyons fast.

Belowdecks, the cabin feels like a luxury cruiser with 6-foot-8-inch headroom, teak floors and kaya joinery. A kaya wood table sits on an electric lift between two lounges, serving as a dining table or queen-size berth. Aft is a two-person midcabin berth. These details make this family/fishing machine a compelling option in this competitive segment.
