Default 2005 Pursuit 2870cc - Very Clean Boat - Keeping It, No Longer For Sale

2005 Pursuit 2870cc with twin 225 4 strokes. 300 hours, no bottom paint, lift and trailer kept its whole life.

The boat is in really good condition. I am a detail and maintenance freak and it shows. The boat shines like there’s a sheet of glass on top of it. There is zero corrosion in the F225’s. I have pictures and documentation to prove it. Easy problem to prevent as well with the right maintenance procedures. Boat was recently surveyed to prepare it for sale. However, you’re welcome to have it surveyed by the company of your choice. Everything has been repaired except for the engine trim sensors because I never use them, I’m old school. They’re a few hundred bucks a piece and an easy repair if you want them fixed.

I’ve own/owned several Pursuits and can’t say enough good things about them. The fit, finish and construction is one of, if not the best in their price range. The boat is an offshore machine. 30’ length, 9’6” beam and a 22-degree dead rise makes for a very favorable ride in snotty conditions. She rides very smooth and dry.

There’s an extraordinary amount of storage for a boat of her size, especially the well-designed area under the gunwales. Huge live well, insulated fish boxes and huge coolers and more. See pics and feel free to contact me directly at 954-604-9165 with questions. Asking $72,500.

Triple Axle Aluminum Trailer with new bunks is included. Below are specs from Pursuits website and some other sources. SPECIFICATIONS

Check out the following link:

​​​​http://www.boattest.com/review/pursu...center-console

This is pretty darn spot on although mine is a little faster. I clock 52 mph on my GPS at wide open throttle but that's not in 2-3 ft seas. It's a fast boat and efficient.
  • Top speed is 50.4 mph, burning 47.3 gallons per hour.
  • Cruise is 38.4 mph, and the boat gets 1.69 miles per gallon.

Is there a rated max hp listed on the boat? Would like to have something like this but update the power to new 300 Yamaha’s.

That's a good question. According to Pursuit's site, twin 225's are the max horsepower. However, I've seen them with 250's before. 300's would make this thing scary fast.

Great looking boat and super listing. It sounds like there shouldn't be any exhaust corrosion concerns on the F225's. Did you proactively address it with the Yamaha kit and related work, or have you just been able to stay on top of any problems with regular maintenance? Thanks.

Skezmo, regular maintenance every 100 hours. However, my Yamaha techs tell me that the corrosion can be prevented with high heat epoxy treatments every hundred hours as long as it's caught early. Because the engines on my boat have no corrosion I've never had the treatments done. If there was corrosion, I would have them treated or get the replacement kits, depending on the severity. I'm a big fan of the F225. They're great running engines.

Definitely great fuel burn numbers. Do you happen to have a good cockpit picture?

Very nice boat! Are you the original owner? You show only 300 hours on 13 year old motors. Can you explain why?
What year is the trailer?
Thanks

I'm the second owner and have multiple Pursuits and don't really use the boat that much. Had low hours when I bought it they're still just under 300. Not sure the year of the trailer. I bought the trailer used after I bought the boat. It's not fancy and could use a new set of tires but it works for what I need it for. I will look on my registration and see if the year is stated on it.

I checked the registration and it shows its a 1996 magic tilt. i did recently replace all of the u-bolts and brackets for the bunks, the bunks, the winch and the winch post.

GREAT BOAT and great listing. I love our 2005 Pursuit 2670cc with same motors. Will be up-sizing soon and the 2870 is definitely on the list. GLWS.
