Pursuit Sport Coupe 365i
By Tom Richardson on April 29, 2015
The new Pursuit SC 365i features a hull engineered specifically for Yamaha outboards. It also boasts a sharp entry, 20-degree deadrise, traditional strakes, reverse chines and a fully enclosed engine compartment.
At the bow, the standard horizontal windlass system finishes at the stem with a neat anchor recess notch for the stainless-steel plow anchor. Optional bow sun lounges feature an adjustable backrest, handrails and drink holders. A heavy-duty rail and stanchions accentuate the sheerline and provide security.
The one-piece, laminated, bonded windshield system is fully integrated with the fiberglass hardtop and comes complete with a full-width sunroof. The windshield frame holds a one-piece, curved piece of tempered glass, providing a wide, unobstructed view of the water ahead. The large helm chair to starboard is complemented by a comfortable 2-person passenger seat. The aft cockpit is highlighted by an extra-large lounge and a fiberglass entertainment center that conceals a sink with fresh water, electric grill and storage below. A stainless steel refrigerator is nearby.
Natural light filtering through 6 hullside windows and 3 overhead windows gives the cabin a bright, airy feel. The cabin is outfitted with a galley and forward convertible dinette that becomes an island berth when the seats are pulled inboard. With the single or twin bed arrangement in the midcabin, 4 adults can overnight in comfort.
In terms of performance, the 365 SC rigged with twin Yamaha F350s has an optimal cruise of 33 mph at 4500, with a fuel burn of 34.9 gph and an mpg of .95. Range at that speed is 255 miles (based on 90% fuel capacity). Top-end speed is 47.7 mph at 6000 rpm, burning 68.6 gph and getting .70 mpg.
