Key Features of the 2020 Pursuit Offshore 355
The Pursuit OS 355 is the mid-size model in Pursuit’s Offshore Collection, with the additional models being the OS 325 and the OS 385. This model’s styling is timeless and classic while introducing a few modern features that are designed as much for offshore cruising as they are for fishing and other water sports.
We know you’ll enjoy all the cleverly disguised storage features and convertible seating and amenities on board, including the electrically actuated convertible berth/dinette in the cabin. And for safety’s sake, the fire suppression system on board adds peace of mind. Let’s check out everything the OS 355 has to offer:
Pursuit power boats are known for their hand-laminated hulls, infused fibreglass and foam-filled structural grids, and moulded hull side frameless tempered glass windows. The OS 355 also comes with Pursuit Fresh White gelcoat and a 5-ply resin-infused composite transom system with a patented transom reinforcement grid.
Designed right into the hull are transom platform extensions and a boarding ladder. There is a dedicated transducer location, bow thruster, and 1,100-gph bilge pump with an automatic float switch.
The newly arrived OS 355 is equipped with twin Yamaha XTO Offshore 425 hp 5.6 L V8 four stroke outboard engines and direct fuel injection. You’ll also get custom built fuel lines with mechanically crimped fittings and a Yamaha water-separating fuel filter with primer bulbs for each engine.
The wide-open, self-draining cockpit of the Pursuit OS 355 offers up a lot of space for fishing, as well as fold-away transom seating for entertaining. Here you’ll also find moulded port bridge lounge seating with aft and forward facing options and foldable armrests. (All the cockpit seating is upholstered with Dri-Fast foam and mesh backing.)
Within the cockpit there is also a JL Audio entertainment system and a mini galley with a sink, cutting board, electric grill, storage, and refrigerator/freezer with fibreglass lid. On the floor you’ll find the cockpit machinery access hatch and nearby there is a freshwater wash with hot/cold mixing valve and pull-out sprayer at the transom door.
With our new OS 355 you get a truly appointed enclosed helm station where you will find the centre-mounted stainless steel steering wheel, main switches, bow thruster joystick, 12V panel with illuminated Carling rocker switches, compass, waterproof stereo remote, and Yamaha Command Link Plus Display. Factory options selected on this build are the factory-installed Garmin Package (Dual GPSMAP 8612 [1XSV], Airmar B175M 20 Degree 1KW Chirp Transducer, NMEA 2000 Starter kit, Pursuit Custom Dash Panel, Yamaha Gateway w/cable, VHF 315, and VHF Antenna), and Garmin Radar Open Array GM 424xHD2, You’ll have comfortable access to everything from your swivelling captain’s chair with its drink holders and fold-away armrests and footrest.
Another great feature of the OS 355 is its fully integrated moulded fibreglass hardtop that covers the helm station and comes with an integrated visor; dedicated radar, antenna and outrigger locations; and an optional, electronically actuated, one-touch sunshade that offers everyone on board additional comfort and protection from the sun.
One of the stand-out features of the OS 355 is its custom windshield system with optically clear laminated glass, tempered side glass with infused fibreglass frame, and an electrically actuated centre vent window. The windshield system comes complete with pantographic windshield wipers, a freshwater washer system, and a three-piece drop curtain.
Within the windshield area there is also integrated life jacket storage, integrated overhead glove boxes, screened ventilation hatches, a horn, and a trumpet.
The beauty and comfort of the OS 355 continues down below in the cabin. A moulded acrylic access door with a secondary framed screen door leads to your cabin entry steps with your custom handrail and wood treads. Down in the cabin you will find custom solid wood tongue and groove floor accents, drainage and sound-damping insulation, and interior air-conditioning with a reverse cycle heat and sound shield.
The stand-out feature in the cabin is the electrically actuated V-berth seating section with its fixed cushions that converts to a queen berth. This area also triples as the dining area, with the solid wood table with power adjustable pedestal. Here you can take time to eat, socialize, sleep, or just relax and enjoy your 28-inch LED TV with JL Audio stereo speakers.
All around you in the cabin there will be storage, including the forward gunwale storage shelves, forward outboard storage compartments, in-floor storage, mid-berth hanging locker, mid-berth horizontal storage, and cedar-lined hanging locker. The cabin area is rounded out nicely with the forward hardwood framed accent mirror and the forward curtained hull side windows to port and starboard.
The starboard designer bathroom is enclosed in fibreglass and features a Corian countertop, glass bowl designer sink, wood-framed entrance door, full length mirror, full height linen closet, towel rack, vanity storage, toilet, and shower. The door to the linen closet pulls double duty – just slide it over and it acts as the privacy door to the shower.
The port galley is gorgeous and fully equipped with modern appliances and touches. You’ll have access to everything you need to prepare gourmet meals anywhere you go in your OS 355, including a Corian countertop and backsplash, stainless steel sink with cutting board cover, upper and lower cabinets, stainless steel fridge and microwave, and dual burner glass cooktop.
Rounding out our roundup of key features on board the Pursuit OS 355 is all of its fishing features, including multiple stainless steel rod holders, a 28-gallon recirculating livewell, under gunwale rod storage, additional horizonal rod storage in the cabin, insulated fish boxes, and a cockpit tackle centre. All these features and more make this model perfect for fishing trips.
