1999 Pursuit 2870 Center Console
I am the second owner of this boat and it is in excellent condition, and an extremely fishable boat. At 30' LOA with a 9'6" beam and a 22 degree dead rise, it is a huge and stable fishing platform.
The boat is powered by twin 2003 Yamaha F225s. The motors are in excellent running condition, and have had exhausts midsections replaced, along with the oil pumps and cranks sleeved. The counter motor has a 3yo Yamaha factory lower. The motors have just crossed 1800 hours. (The hours are the only reason I have priced the boat so low, but I honestly believe that they will serve someone well for quite some time into the future.)
The boat is in excellent condition. The gel coat shines like new, and the boat features a custom fiberglass hard top with a 3' aluminum tube structure that gives it a much more modern appearance than the normal Pursuit of this era. The aluminum and other brightwork shine, and the only cosmetic flaw is the white powder coat is peeling from the head door access in the console. There is a relatively new 3 piece phone booth enclosure on the console and additional wings that extend to the gunwale, for cold weather fishing.
Electronics updated in 2018, including:
- 7" Simrad Evo 3
- 9" Simrad S2009 Commercial Fishfinder
- Standard Horizon Explorer VHF
- Shakespeare 5225XT antenna
- Furuno LCD radar works excellent
- Three batteries, with a built in 3 bank charger.
- Double rigged lay down outriggers
- Penn Fathom Master Electric Down Rigger with additional rod holder and 12v plug on port stern corner
- GOOD Automatic F850A Free Fall Windlass with 500' of rode. Drop anchor on the spot with the push of a button.
Performance is very economical for a big center console. With a typical fishing load, 5 guys and 3/4 tank of fuel, I cruise at between 4000-4200 RPM, making 28kts and showing a burn of 18-20gph on the Yamaha Gauge. Worst case economy is 1.6mpg loaded. The boat has Stainless Yamaha 19" SWS II props, and I am making 5800 rpm at the top end.
The bottom is smooth, fast and clean. It was soda blasted in November 2017. Two coats of epoxy barrier coat were added, followed by one hard coat of blue anti-fouling as a signal coat, then 2 coats of Black Micron CSC Multi-season Ablative.
