Default 1996 Pursuit 2470CC ***SOLD***

Everything you'd expect from a Pursuit. Clean, solid, runs great. Unique looking with the custom top that anchors at the gunwales. The coverage from sun and rain is fantastic. I personally put the last 650 hours on her, 4,000 RPM's, 26 knots. Have two new young kids and I'm going to move into an enclosed boat next. Need to sell now, as I'm moving out of my waterfront condo and will lose the onsite storage.
  • 1996 Pursuit 2470 Center Console
  • 1996 Twin 130 Yamaha two stroke outboards, 925 hours
  • stainless props
  • custom top
  • new vinyl
  • Raymarine C120 display
  • Raymarine DSM
  • Raymarine radome radar
  • Delta anchor
  • enclosed head
  • detachable stern seat/insulated cooler
  • forward seating, one storage, one insulated cooler
  • insulated cooler seat forward of console
  • raw water wash down
  • freshwater tank
  • 160 gallon fuel tank
  • bilge pump
  • live well
  • canvas cover for center console
  • vhf
  • radio w/ CD player and two Bose speakers
  • Yamaha gauges, included fuel flow

Performance
15 GPH combined at 4,000 RPM's and 26 knots

Trailer
EZ Load dual axle trailer
Fine trailer, but it hasn't left the property in six years, as I store, launch, and boat front the same property. I would have the trailer serviced before sale to ensure roadworthiness.

Asking $24,900 for boat and trailer

Default Price Reduction

I'm moving, and unfortunately the boat must go. Great boat. I love it, but have to let it go. $21,000 w/ trailer.

Wish I knew you were selling before I bought mine. Always liked the look of that boat. Good luck.

Thanks guys. Someone asked me for additional helm pictures. I took my "for sale" pix after I took the electronics out for shrinkwrapping, that's why I dug up that other picture of my buddy lounging on the forward seating. What you see there is pretty much it. Raymarine 12" color screen, chartplotter, DSM, radar, radio/cd player, vhf, yamaha guages, stainless steering wheel, panel of switches, trim tab controls.

I think the deadrise is 21 degrees. Honestly, I'm not even sure what the wot speed is. I've been driving this boat around Long Island Sound for six years, and I've never pinned it...just don't run it like that. Rarely, I push it to 4600 just to stretch it out, but only briefly.

Rough seas: I think it's great. Feels substantial and solid. Doesn't "bang". Trim tabs are very effective, can deliver a comfortable ride for the wife and kids.

If you go onto www.pursuitboats.com and click on boat models and then archives, you can find the 2470. They have newer test reports which showed a 2470CC equipped with twin 115hp 4 strokes with a top speed of 42mph. Deadrise is indeed 21 degrees.

I had a chance to see this boat this weekend. It's number #2 on my list after an Edgewater I'm eyeing. This boat is attractively priced and well maintained by its owner who really knows his way around this boat who speaks quite honestly about it, what's great and maybe what is not so perfect (no boat is perfect). Oh, and the Raymarine radar package is very nice surprise as well. Someone will get a great boat for the money.

Beautiful boat and great price, this won't last long. I have the same hull and the boat is a beast!

Nice rig,

I am shopping for late spring, but interested. What is the weight of the boat and motors?

Thanks!

I think it's 3,300 dry & no engines, which isn't helpful....I believe it's right around 4,000 pounds, depending on the fuel and fresh water onboard. Tank holds 160 gallons of fuel. I believe the freshwater tank holds ten gallons. Figure you carry half a tank of fuel and a full tank of water, 540 pounds, add in gear....4,000. My truck is check out for 5,500, and it hauls it with no problems.

Default bad math

I did bad/fast back of envelope math. Forgot to add in the engines. Add 700 pounds. You're probably looking at 4700 pounds loaded for bear.

Default Engine service history?

Any info on service history or components replaced on these engines? Recent compression test?

Thanks,

Default Updates??

Have you sold the boat yet. I have a 1997 for sale here in NC. Great shape and outfitted for offshore fishing and have gotten what I consider CRAZY low offers. Just trying to figure out if I should lower my expectations or if they are trying to low ball me. I inherited the boat when my dad passed and its just too much boat for me but I cant see giving it away.

Thanks for any help and good luck if you haven't sold it yet.

Sorry for the delay...weather's too nice to be on the computer! BCEagle: yes, I have the records, just your normal stuff. No compression test.

terrifesmire: I believe based on my research that the price I have listed here is competitive and ballpark to move.

johnmhampton: will reach out to you today.

thanks!
