Pursuit boats

The development of fishing pursuit boats has changed greatly in recent years. At the very beginning they changed their 2800, followed by the 2650, which replaced the 2600. Already in the past, Cuddy became their most modern sport motorboat. When building the Pursuit Cuddy 2150, the hull from the old Pursuit 2000 was preserved, but in the new version only the previous hull, which anglers are sure to like, has evolved. Just like in the previous versions of the Pursuit, the same two-part construction was used, which includes the hull and liner.

The boat is big enough, it measures 20’3″ and weighs 2,600 pounds, all in order to be able to pull the boat with a medium car. On board the boat, there is an 86-gallon fuel tank, which is enough for a whole day of fishing. This model uses a paraplan that runs from below and a modified deep-v, which has a sharp angle of entry and a 16° dead centre at the stern.

Pursuit boats: performance really counts

The boat we were swimming in was equipped with a 225-horsepower engine, which was the upper limit for this model. Thanks to its light and sleek design, the powerboat achieved very good performance. The maximum speed we reached that day was 50 mph at 5500 rpm. The time to the plane was just under 3.5 seconds. The optimum fuel economy was achieved at 2500 rpm/min, which ensured a speed of around 30 mph, i.e. 2.56 mpg and about 200 miles of range, which is a very good result. It is also worth mentioning that the fuel savings are also maintained at 4500rpm. Looking at these figures, you can see that we are dealing with a well balanced fishing boat, which is Pursuit Cuddy 2150. If we want to save fuel further with good performance, I would advise to reach for a slightly smaller engine – let us say 175 km, this will not only reduce combustion but also increase the maximum range on one tank.

The pursuit boats are very stable even in tight and fast corners. If we don’t like it when the boat’s bow rises up at low speeds, we can change it with 12 “x8” hydraulic trimmers. The motorboat is made of high quality polyester resins and fibreglass. They bind one-way bixial glass fibre to the monolith. Application of such a solution has three advantages. Firstly, it is stronger and more durable than other materials, all thanks to the lack of cross weave, which, as we know, causes tension under load. Secondly, the whole is uniform, making it less prone to punctures. As a result, glass fibre is not susceptible to high gelling temperatures. Thirdly, using one-way glass fibre material, they take less resin than other counterparts, so there is more glass than resin itself.
