The Pursuit series of fishing boats was launched in 1977 by Leon Slikkers who started his career working in the joiner department at Chris Craft back in 1955.
Slikkers boldly left the company and started his own small factory in Michigan called Slickcraft, and he started to build 14ft runabouts in his garage after work. By 1964, his most successful boat became a leader in the trend toward trailerable, cuddy-cabin boats, as well as deep v-bottom boats. Slikkers eventually sold the company and started Pursuit boats with a new plant built in 1983 that was about 75,000sqft. New sales records were reached, and the company expanded, and by 1993, the company launched several new models including: the 1950 Dual Console, 2150 Dual Console, 2150 Walkaround, 2355 Center Console, 2555 Center Console, 2555 Walkaround, 2855 Express and the 3100 Express.
Two years later, the company achieved all new record sales, again. In more recent years, the company’s models now include two center consoles, five dual console models, three offshore models, and five sport models. In 2021, the company won two awards – the NMMA CSI award for the eighteenth year in a row, and two NMMA Neptune Awards for excellence in marketing.
