Pursuit’s new Offshore Series flagship takes fishing, cruising and entertaining to new levels of luxury and comfort. The OS 445’s enclosed cockpit features a panoramic view thanks to the 60-inch windshield and tall side windows. An aft glass door and flip-up picture window bring the outside in. Enjoy air conditioning and heat thanks to a standard Fischer Panda 12 kW diesel generator.

Fishing features include a 50-gallon lighted, recirculating transom livewell plus a 75-gallon fish box that has a refrigerator/freezer function and can double as a cooler when entertaining. Two more insulated in-floor fish boxes hold 82 gallons each. Serious anglers can choose carbon-fiber outriggers ($12,080) and hardtop-mounted rod holders ($3,465).

Below, find a private, queen-size-plus island bed forward and an amidships berth with plenty of headroom. Adding the optional electronically adjustable-height cockpit table ($21,200) creates sleeping accommodations for a third couple.

Entertainment features include three standard smart TVs, including a 43-incher on the bridge deck that drops down from overhead. When at rest, an electronically lowerable starboard-side boarding platform adds cockpit space and functions as a watersports staging area complete with a boarding ladder. The foredeck cabana area has a huge chaise-style lounge with adjustable backrests for sunning, and there’s a recessed bow bench. Access to the bow area is easy thanks to the 12-inch-wide port and starboard walkways.
