The S 358 delivers an outstanding fishing experience.

The new S 358 represents the latest addition to Pursuit’s popular Sport family, and it is the company’s first-ever center-console in its size class. A row of three deluxe helm seats with fold-down armrests—plus the protection of an oversize hardtop and tempered safety-glass wraparound windshield—ensures comfort.

Abaft resides a covered summer galley with an electric grill, refrigerator and sink, plus foldout trays that quickly convert to two aft-facing mezzanine seats, complemented by a fold-down transom bench to create a great social center in the aft cockpit. Or take the festivities forward to the wraparound bow seating with actuated backrests that create a pair of lounges. Raise the motorized table half-way and add a cushion for a big sun pad; later on, elevate the table when it’s time to dine with the forward console seat, providing a place for guests at the table.

A pocket door on the helm deck slides open to a wide companionway and leads to a step-down cabin, with rich wood accents and tinted side windows that usher in natural light, and port windows for fresh air. An enclosed head compartment features a vanity, sink, VacuFlush toilet and shower. A settee converts to a cozy berth, and there’s a microwave too—all great amenities for overnight adventures.

When it’s time to fish, the S 358 delivers with a 32-gallon transom livewell, 12 rod holders, a tackle center, and in-sole insulated fish boxes on the port and starboard sides, with diaphragm pump-outs. Long 18-foot Taco outriggers are optional for boating anglers who like to troll. A standard inward-opening starboard-side door makes it easy to slide aboard a big tuna or swordfish, but it also doubles as a dive door (thanks to a removable boarding ladder) or an easy way to step aboard from a marina’s floating dock.

Powered by a pair of Yamaha 425 hp XTO V-8 outboards, and carrying a crew of six and 260 gallons of fuel, our test boat achieved an average top speed of nearly 50 mph, with a smooth ride and easy handling at speed as well as in tight quarters thanks to the Helm Master EX joystick feature and forward bow thruster.
