There's 650.6 cubic inches of displacement wide open and thrumming, 16 spark plugs that flare out every microsecond, and 9,685 pounds of fiberglass going into rocket mode. My brain is trying to catch up with my body-damn, there's some serious power working here. And as perfect as a pair of 350-hp Yamaha outboards is for this new Pursuit C 340 center console, the boat is just as perfect for the motors. Pursuit designed it specifically to carry these 804-pound beasts, and when I throw down the throttles, the end result is awesome.Changes from the norm for Pursuit include a new fiberglass stringer system, redesigned weight distribution, and an increased transom thickness from 27⁄8" to 4". The new stringers mate with the transom via a ply-cored, fiberglass-infused center stringer knee, which is bonded to the face of the transom. When tackling the prospect of extra weight and horsepower, many builders simply mount a motor on the old transom, then wait to see if complaints trickle-or flood-in from the field. Not so with Pursuit.
