Premium Pursuit quality, reliable Volvo diesels, many significant upgrades. Tremendous value in a low-time boat!

The Pursuit 3400 Express was the premiere boat of her day for the Pursuit factory. In this 3400, fishing prowess is equaled by pure luxury and cruising performance. The modified deep-V entry and 12-foot, 9-inch beam give this boat a strong, fuel-efficient hull that delivers great stability, precise handling, and a soft, dry ride. Designed to strike a balance between fishing and cruising, the fishing package contains large fish boxes in the transom and the floor, and bait and tackle drawer storage in the lower cockpit.The accommodations below are spacious and thoughtfully laid out. The generous salon sleeps four comfortably and the efficient galley features a sink, a stove, a microwave, and a refrigerator. The fabrics, detailing, and standard solid teak and holly floor create a warm, traditional look throughout. QUALITY TIME is a very versatile boat, equally adept at hard-charging fishing, as well as the more genteel family activities of cruising, entertaining, and harbor hopping.
