Above: Shown with the filler cushions in place, the bow area is deep, secure and
includes lots of under-seat storage.
Inset: Remove the filler cushions and the bow table becomes a great spot for
lunch when moored.
Below: This is a very usable head compartment with a sink, clever storage and a fire
extinguisher in the door.

hang on or step in.
In the dual console design, the
windshield swings open in the centre.
We thought the curved windshield
looked great and the opening center
section has two clips plus a fitting to
secure the glass when it's open. Pursuit
has done a better job on that than just
about any builder I can think of and the
bow area will get lots of use. Jill was
especially impressed with the bow and
all the interior accommodations.
She said, "If you are a parent as I
am, you probably know that boating
changes when you have a little one -
safety becomes the first priority.
Typically, I'm the First Mate, so I took
on that role while we were testing the
DC 235 and turned down the opportunity to drive - I wanted the "real-life"
simulation."
"On boarding, I immediately noticed
the depth of the cockpit area. The high
freeboard gave me a sense of security.
The overall length is 24' 4", however it
felt more like 28'. A quick circle check
for all of my priorities left me
impressed, with the innovative design

providing comfort in all areas and functionality for longer day cruising. After
safety, the key priority for this mom is
the head. On this vessel the head is
spacious and even comes standard with
a pullout freshwater shower. Again, lots
of functional space there as well."
KEY FEATURES
Here is a quick-list of features that I
think takes this boat to the top of the
list for parents and couples who want
an exceptionally practical (and sexy)
day cruiser and cottage boat:
* Optional tow bar for fun on
the water.
* Single port-side folding, aft-facing
lounge. The seat is wide and the
upholstery is supple, providing
comfort for the spotter for the
aforementioned towing fun. This
seat would be my Happy Place
even when not towing.
* A forward-facing, folding transom
bench complements the cockpit
creating a wonderful place for conversation - which is easy with the
incredibly quiet Yamaha F300 outboard for power.
* Rod holders and live-well make it a
cross-functional fishing boat offering another option for entertaining
friends or 7-year olds on a day trip.
* The optional hard-top and side curtains offer protection from the elements with ease.
* The entertainment area has a sink
with pull-out sprayer and insulated
cooler.
* Storage! There is storage designed
into every inch of available space.
