40′ Pursuit

DIRTYFIN is a Pursuit express sportfish with twin inboard diesels. She measures 40'11" overall and carries a wide 14'2" beam. Top speed is 37mph and she cruises at 30mph. DIRTYFIN is a private yacht available for charter.

The express design does away with the salon living area of a convertible style sportfish in exchange for an open helm and seating area (aka the helm deck) behind the windshield. The helm deck is completely covered by a hard top which provides plenty of shade. The wrap around windshield and Strataglass enclosure keeps you dry if it rains and warm when the winds blowing on those winter sailfish trips. The large air conditioned cabin sleeps 4 comfortably and is equipped with a galley, bathroom w/enclosed shower, queen sized forward birth, dinning settee, and sofa. The teak and holly floor, teak walls and designer fabrics add an elegant touch of luxury. Her beautiful lines are still pleasing to the eye 12 years after she was built.

Pursuit's 3800 model was the first and only Pursuit ever built on the Tiara production line in Holland, MI. This is hull #1 off the production line. Tiara is well respected for building beautiful, high quality, well appointed yachts.

DIRTYFIN had a major refitting in March/April 2013. During her 2 month refit she received all new electronics including radar, sonar, 3 multi function LCD network displays, and an auto pilot. A new stereo system was installed, 3 Sea Vision underwater HID lights, new fighting lady yellow hull paint, new bottom paint, new LED cockpit and courtesy lighting, new upholstery, new cabin air conditioning units, new 8 person life raft, all new bronze through hull fittings, new engine mounts, prop shaft and engine alignments, new prop shaft seals, new tackle storage cabinets, new generator enclosure, rebuilt and resealed hatches, gelcoat repairs and a complete inspection of her hull, stringers, bulkheads, seacocks, tower, and outriggers. DIRTYFIN is mechanically and aesthetically maintained in bristol condition.
