Default Hauling out of the ramp Pursuit 31 ft concerns

Hello all,

I'm having concerns and doubts whether my 2010 Tundra V6 can't pull out my Pursuit 31 ft from the marina ramp. If someone has a similar situation, please share your thoughts and/or experiences. I'd greatly appreciate it.

Your RAV4 would be a better choice.

I'd be concerned also. I would have to assume a 31 Pursuit is more than double the tow rating of that truck?

I wouldn't say double but damn near close. My boat with equipment, full tanks, motors etc. is about 11000ish pounds. Thanks for the replies

Is this just pulling the boat out? Or towing on the roads too? 2wd or 4wd?

I think Toyota has a small and big v8, only one v6 on the tundra but maybe I'm wrong on that.


OP, if the boat is 11k and the trailer is 1500+ you'll be well over 12k lbs. If you just need to pull the boat once I'd rent a 3/4 ton maybe a 1 ton.

I feel like this is one of those situations where the person asking the question already knows the answer.

It’s a joke....”big 6”...kind of an oxymoron...

I have a 29 SeaVee. I can pull it out the ramp with my 2004 Land Rover Discovery. No issue what so ever. I cannot go over 35mph though.

I think if you have 4wd, you'll fine. Definitely pick a shallow grade ramp if you can.

4wd? If so throw it in 4lo and it'll pull it no problem. Going down the highway is another story, but if its just up and down the ramp I'm sure it'll do fine. When I was working heavy equipment we abused the hell out of a chevy 1500w/t with a 6cyl. We did find its limit at 5 ecology blocks on a flatbed trailer going up the back side of a rockpit. Guessing it was well over 20,000lbs. The driver was standing on it and it just quit moving. I hooked up my Tacoma and pulled it the rest of thw way up.

I use a 1974 cj5 with what was originally 95hp inline 6 to launch my dorado on local dirt ramps. 4 wheel low is your friend. remember no sharp turns though.

Go big or go home. I tow my OB27 with this:




With that said, OP I would never tow that boat with that vehicle. It’s a disaster waiting to happen. If you are simply pulling it out of the water, then I don’t see the problem. However, I wouldn’t get on the road with that combo.

Why not just use a midsize crossover?

#1) I think you are underestimating the weight. Our Pursuit 3070 Offshore CC weighed around 13,000 lbs when lifted by marina travel lifts.
#2) If your truck is 4WD it should be able to pull it up the ramp as long as the ramp is not too slippery/steep. I would not tow it very far.

One thing is for sure, if you find out too late that it won't pull it out, at least you'll probably be semi-famous once the YouTube video comes out, so there's that.....

OP, I would spend a solid hour browsing "the qualified captain" before making any decisions.

My Pursuit 315 behind my 2500 6.0. It works, but I only go short distance.

I have the 5.7 liter “big V8” in my Tundra and max tow rating is 10k. You are asking a lot of the V6. It will do it but it won’t be happy.
