The SC 365i offers a hardtop complete with a full-beam retractable sunroof. I was impressed with the windshield. It’s a single, curved piece of chemically tempered laminated glass. I noticed no distortion looking through it. It is unique and integrates seamlessly with the hardtop.
From transom lounge to the capacious wet bar and helm deck with its lounge, the single-level cockpit allows for fluid pedestrian traffic paths. I judged side-deck access to the bow for line handling or use of the chaise lounge sun pad safe: sturdy handholds, wide decks, and just enough deck camber to ensure drainage without compromising footing.
A well-built Pursuit boat is no surprise. But stepping through the companionway, I was startled. The decor eschews Pursuit’s traditional simplicity in favor of luxe digs modeled after larger yachts. A design imperative to incorporate at least two sources of natural light in every space was achieved with skylights, opening ports, deck hatches and long, narrow hull-side windows port and starboard, ensuring a great view and welcoming ambience.
The salon seating converts to an island berth electrically. The aft stateroom features a door, walk-in headroom and a pair of single berths that convert to a queen. The head is all fiberglass for easy maintenance, yet the glass-basin sink and the Coke-bottle-green shower door imbue elegance. Throughout, the mélange of varying color, texture and materials screams posh.
