Pursuit has really upped the game with their latest flagship in the Offshore Series. The OS 445 brings a whole new level of luxury and comfort to fishing, cruising, and entertaining. The enclosed cockpit is a real standout, boasting a sweeping view made possible by the expansive 60-inch windshield and tall side windows. And for that indoor-outdoor feel, there's a glass door at the back and a flip-up picture window. No worries about the weather, as the standard Fischer Panda 12 kW diesel generator keeps the AC and heat flowing.

Triple Yamaha 5.6L 425-hp engines are the sole option available for the new Pursuit OS 455. Pursuit did their research and decided the target customer for this boat will tend to prioritize cruising range over reaching top speeds. As a result, the target top speed for this vessel is a comfortable 50 miles per hour.

At the helm, you're in command with twin 22-inch Garmin 8622 fish finders/chart plotters. The extra-wide Stidd helm seat moves with the touch of a button, and there's the convenience of Yamaha's Helm Master joystick control, a bow thruster, and an automatic Zipwake interceptor system.

Kicking off from the expansive aft deck, a motorized fold-down starboard door known as the "Beach Platform” allows for easy entry and exit at deck level, making it a breeze to embark on a diving adventure or even land a hefty tarpon. Right beside the Beach Platform, you'll find a handy rinse station at deck level, complete with a hot/cold shower.

And don't miss the impressive 82-gallon cooler (there's a matching one on the port side too, making for a total of 239 gallons of chilled fish storage). Concealed beneath the attractive no-skid faux teak flooring, Pursuit has ingeniously placed essential mechanical systems – from the Seakeeper to the fuel filters to the 12 kW Fisher-Panda genset. Accessible through both a generously sized floor hatch and an additional hatch beneath the stairs, convenience is clearly a priority.


With clever foresight, Pursuit has ensured full access to the entire front deck from both sides through well-protected walkways with full railings. This configuration leads to a foredeck designed with comfort in mind – featuring an expansive expanse of retractable cushions complete with recliners, alongside a charming bow-placed loveseat. This cozy spot is ideal for catching the sunset or enjoying a leisurely afternoon casting light tackle. Beyond this, the walkway and railing arrangement allows for seamless navigation around the deck, perfect for keeping a fish on the line. Additionally, it offers the option of securing kayaks or paddleboards on one side while underway.

The cabin below is designed for comfort and privacy, with a queen-size-plus island bed forward and another berth amidships. The galley's got all the bells and whistles, from refrigerator drawers to a microwave and even a chillable wine rack.

It's also worth noting that this flagship comes with some fantastic standard features, including a Seakeeper 6 gyrostabilizer, that trusty Fischer Panda generator, and those impressive Garmin 22-inch MFDs. And with a beam that's nearly 14 feet wide, you're getting a ton of interior space to enjoy. So, all in all, this Pursuit OS 445 is all about taking things up a notch in the world of offshore boating.


The OS 445 doesn't disappoint in the angling department. You've got a 50-gallon lighted transom livewell and a versatile 75-gallon fish box that can moonlight as a fridge or freezer and even a cooler for those fun times. Plus, there are two more roomy in-floor fish boxes, each holding a whopping 82 gallons. And if you're really serious about angling, you can opt for carbon-fiber outriggers and hardtop-mounted rod holders.
