The Pursuit C 260 measures 25 feet, 10 inches long and features a well-appointed dash that has enough room for two multi-function displays. The driver can sit or stand depending on how the double-wide adjustable leaning post/seat arrangement is configured, and off the transom is a fold-down bench seat that clears out of the way for fishing space in the cockpit. Facing bench seats are built in the bow area, and a removable table inserts into the deck for dining. Built at the Pursuit facility in Fort Pierce, Florida, the C 260 offers yacht-caliber fit and finish. Hatches are finished inside and out, and interior highlights include bow storage to port and starboard, a thru-hull optional windlass system in the bow, a head and freshwater sink under the center pod, and a custom surfboard-styled, vacuum-infused hardtop.
A curved, recessed acrylic windshield built to accent the stylish lines throughout the interior and exterior appointments protects the helm, and there’s a built-in storage compartment in the hardtop within easy reach. The C 260 is offered with important standard features such as a 30-gallon livewell behind the helm seat, a 31-gallon insulated fish storage box and separate cooler in the transom. Maximum power is twin Yamaha 200-hp outboard engines, which push the boat to top speed of 52 mph. With a single Yamaha F350 outboard engine the boat runs to 51.7 mph. (772) 465-6006; pursuitboats.com
