I tested the C 260 in Stuart, Florida, on a March day with an east-southeast breeze on the North Fork of the St. Lucie River, which is capable of getting quite a bit of fetch in that much wind and provided enough chop for me to get a feel for the boat. Pursuit has long had reputable hull designs that provide good efficiency and the comfortable, soft ride of a deep-V, and the C 260’s is no exception. A single Yamaha F350 comes as standard power, but our test boat came rigged with twin 200 hp Yamaha four-strokes that provided plenty of power and speed (twin F150s are also available). I liked the 4,000 to 4,500 rpm range, which was comfortable and provided great tracking. The boat did not bang or slam yet got over 2 miles to the gallon, making between 35 and 40 mph, plenty of speed when loaded with gear and guests. It is a nimble boat, leaning into turns at speed, then handling nicely in close quarters around the dock.
