We Say: The new Pursuit C 238 takes the entry-level center-console to new heights with features like its swim-platform extensions for an easier way to reboard. The console integrates the hardtop, and a beefy door on the front of the console swings open to reveal a step-down head compartment with 67 inches of headroom. When the console door is closed, it becomes a comfy high-back seat. The 33-inch-wide helm panel with a tannish-gray hue to reduce glare accommodates a Garmin GPSMap 7612xsv display. Twin captain’s chairs at the helm come with flip-up bolsters for support when standing and fold-down armrests for extra comfort when seated. A 38-inch-wide bench-style seat folds up flush with the transom. A covered 23-gallon livewell resides in the starboard quarter, and there is a transom door in the port quarter.

You can relax in the bow on twin 49-inch-long loungers with backrests that fold out from the gunwales. When retracted, the backrests become part of the padded coaming bolsters.

With a Yamaha F300 outboard, we vaulted from 0 to 30 mph in 7.4 seconds en route to a top speed of 48.4 mph. With 21 degrees of deadrise at the transom, the new hull rides silky smooth and carves high-speed turns with confidence and precision.
